Dear Family & Friends,Life is full of unexpected twists and turns... so is a mission! We got a surprise phone call Friday night and Sister Zenger had to pack her bags and leave Saturday morning for a different area. This emergency transfer affected four companionships of sisters from various areas of the mission. I got a new companion and her name is Sister Cleverly! She has been out on her mission for 6 months and she is from Fort Collins, Colorado. The past few days have been a bit stressful because I've had to "lead" our area- plan all our appointments and visits, navigate our travels, introduce her to the people we are working with, etc. and I'm not even done training yet! Real transfers are next week so hopefully nothing else drastic happens.
"And thus they were driven forth; and no monster of the sea could break them... and they did have light continually" (Ether 6:10). No matter what twists and turns life throws at us, we can stay strong if we focus on those small and simple things that keep us mindful of the Lord.
This week we also got to prune some trees for a family in our ward. That was an adventure! And we found 2 new investigators so this week, especially with Sister Cleverly here, is going to be exciting! I'll write more about my new companion next week.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I love and miss you!
P.S. Pics are of pruning trees with Sister Zenger and a girl named Noelia in our ward who just got her mission call to Mexico! The other is my new companion Sister Cleverly
