SO this week has been quite interesting and
crazy! Transfers like always was torture waiting to find out where I was going
and of course my name was one of the last one to be called! My new Companion is
Sister Olive and She is from California. she is Polynesian and such an amazing
missionary and love being able to serve with her! She has helped me transition
pretty well and am so amazed at how well she teaches! I love the way we are
going! We had a great week with teaching together and I love all the people
here! The population is mostly all Lumbe Indians and so I feel out of place
sometimes and I love sharing the Book of Mormon with them because they want to
know about their ancestors. I can see so much work we can do and I love those
we are teaching! I have never seen so many Investigators that any companionship
can teach so I am a little overwhelmed but I can see great lessons in the
future and great opportunity to grow in my teaching! I am so blessed! We are
working with a great ward! It is small but we call everyone by there first
names since everyone is related and everyone is family someway.
We work a lot with the youth which I am
excited for. On Wednesday was my first time with them and all they did was sit
in chairs and have a discussion and I was told this was there normal activity or
they just play sports. The Young W omens President is looking for some ideas to
make it more fun! I am reminded of my young women years and how much fun it
was and so I definitely am ready to help.
I am definitely in a place with strong
southern accents and I love it! hahaha! I may finally get an accent! :) The
people are so friendly and so nice! We are busy all the time!
If anything I can see that Pembroke has
great Potential and an amazing place to help it grow! I can see amazing things
happening and lots to do, but I know that I am sent here for a reason! I am
just so enthusiastic for this new journey and I hope that my excitement will
help me learn and continue to serve faithfully! This is definitely going to be
a big change but I know that I am doing the work of my Savior and he is the
I am excited that General
Conference is this week and that we get to hear from the Prophet and Apostles!
Love you all and Congrats to Katie for her mission Call! You will love it and
will never regret it! I know I will never! Love you all!
