Yeah, Kim is the BEST!!!! She goes teaching with us all the time! I was actually at her house when she sent you a friend request. You must have been on because you accepted it pretty quick:) The Sister you saw me with is my new companion Sister Maughan. Tuesday me and my companion and Sister Call all received new transfer calls. The president felt impressed to switch some things up so Sister Maughan came down from black rock and Sister Call went up to take her place. Sister Fisher and I got split up and she is now with Sister Takuia who goes home in a few weeks! So that all changed on Friday. It was unexpected but hey, that's the way the cookie crumbled. So I am blanking an area. That means my companion and I do not know our area and we basically have zero investigators. So we are starting from scratch. It is going to take a lot of hard work and long days but eventually we will build up our area and have a teaching pool.
Oh, and I mustn't forget....I am on a bike now. Yup, dear old me is riding a bike in a skirt. If you can just imagine that you will picture just how hard it is. It is sketchy!! Basically I can only wear like 2 of my skirts because the other ones don't work for biking and like 4 of my shirts. So sorry if I am wearing the same outfit in all of my pictures from now on! :)
Yesterday was amazing! We were having a hard time getting pumped about our new area and having no teaching pool for the most part. We met a young adult from India that is attending the American Medical College near us and went to teach her yesterday afternoon. No joke, as soon as we walked out the door it starts pouring rain. We were definitely being tested. We road all the way there in the pouring rain and were soaking wet. It was all worth it in the end.
The Lady's name is Divya. As we were getting to know he a little more before we started the lesson she said she was going to call the three most important people in her life right now that were on the island to hear our message with her. Her three best friends (also from India). So she calls them and tells them to come down to the lobby. Obviously they were surprised to see us but after talking with them for a while they wanted to know about where we go after this life. So we taught them the plan of salvation. Or rather the Spirit taught them and we were simply to vessels through which that was possible. It was such and amazing lesson.
They are going to come to Fun night (sports) on Friday with us and we are going to bus with them there. They are so excited to come back and they said that we made their week. :) SO thank you Heavenly Father. We needed that comment.
Thursday was a bank holiday (hero's day) as was yesterday (Labor Day). Thursday we had sports and games and such for about 6 hours at the rendezvous meeting house. I played basketball for almost 4 hours!!! It was so fun! I am getting better.
I am so excited to be able to talk with you on Skype on Mother’s day! What a treat.
Friday was my halfway point!!!! Can you believe that I only have 9 months left!! It is a weird feeling. Missions are hard but they are worth it. I love the people here so much! :)
I am sad/happy about the ward split (at home in Salem). That means there is major growth going on there!! But I will miss all of my close friends that will be in the other wards :( I love them all!!!
Anyways, I hope you have a fantastic week.
I love you long time!
