Dear family and friends,
Boy oh boy there is a lot of news this week!
first and foremost...... I have been out for 3 months!! that is so weird and crazy! Time is flying by!
Well, Sister Peterson is being transferred. I will miss her a whole lot! Here is the twist.... I am also being transferred...sort of... They decided to switch the Elders and Sisters in Somerset. I will now be in a car with my new companion. The elders will be on bikes now. We are switching apartments and everything tonight. I will still be in the same branch, but new investigators and area. The elders will have downtown Somerset, and we will have the rest of Pulaski County. It will be different. I have very mixed emotions about it all! I feel like this area is my baby since we opened it. I know the Elders will take good care of it though!
My soon to be new companion is Sister Haywood ( I don't know how to spell it). She has been with Sister Hall, my MTC companion, for the last two transfers. Someone told Sister Haywood where she was going, so she told me yesterday. I am super excited to be companions with her! We will find out where Sister Peterson is going tomorrow at transfer meeting.
We had stake conference yesterday. Our whole zone got to sing during it. It was really fun! Sister Peterson and I also sang at Young Womens in Excellence.
Last Monday I got to go to the gym, and play around on the equipment. There equipment was older, so I couldn't do everything. I did all the things that I could though! It was a lot of fun!!! I haven't really lost any skills. It was great!
Sister Peterson was really sick again this week. We had to go to the doctor twice. She is doing better now that she is on antibiotics. It was turning into bronchitis.
The weather here has been rainy and cold this week!
Do you remember the guy I told you about last week named Brother Lequire? He is the one we sang to in the hospital. Well, he passed away on Monday night. It was sad, but he is in a better place.
We had some great lessons this week. One of them was with April. She is keeping every commitment we throw at her! She reads, prays, and comes to church. She is so willing to do anything. She always talks about how we are going to do fun things with her after we are off our missions. It is funny.
We also met with Amy...finally! Her life has been so hectic lately, so we haven't been able to meet with her. We had a great lesson with her, and she knows the Book of Mormon is true! What what!!! oh yeah! That is what I like to hear! We will meet with her again this week. I am super duper excited!
We had a few investigators drop us this week. It stinks, but oh well what do you do. We had one investigator named Mary. She is an older lady. She sat there for 20 minutes trying to convert us to her apostolic penicostal church. It wasn't the first time someone has tried to convert us to their religion. She wouldn't let us talk because she jsut kept reading scripture after scripture from the bible. We then got a chance to talk, and just bore our testimonies. She sat there and looked stunned. We told her we loved her and said goodbye. She did not seem to happy.
Congratulations to Karlee and Tyler on getting hitched! I hope the wedding was marvelous!
I hope you all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
What are you grateful for?
I am grateful to be out here serving the Lord. I am grateful that I get to be bringing people closer to Christ. I am grateful for all the wonderful people I get to meet. I am grateful for all the little things in life. I am grateful for all of you that are reading this! I am especially grateful for my family, and all that they do for me. I hope you are all grateful for the things you have in life. Don't take anything forgranted because you never know when you might not have it anymore. Someone always has it worse than you, so be grateful for what you do have. Being grateful is the best!
I love you all!
Eat lots of turkey and pie.... don't get fat!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
