Week 25!

April 7th, 2014

Well I am officially 6 Months old in the mission!!!! Woohoo! This week was crazy, the first half of the week was spent packing and saying goodbye to cowpens (bittersweet) and then Wednesday was Transfers. I thought I was going to die from the anxiety of knowing where I was going and who would be my new companion! It ended up really funny though actually because Sister Wheelock My Last Companion came from a town called Newberry (where she served 6months) to Cowpens. and now I went from Cowpens (Where I served 6 months) to NEWBERRY!!!! haha.... oh boy was that funny. Sister Wheelock had shown me lots of pictures and Videos and told me stories and all about the people, so I felt like I Knew the area before I even got there! I even knew what out Apartment looked like before I got there :) But at Transfers (April 2) President Holm Played an April Fools on us!!!!! He told us that Sisters where all being extended to 24 months effective immediately and that all Elders where being extended to 30 months effective immediately and that the most obedient zone would only receive ipads! Oh boy where we in an uproar!! It was Pretty Great though :) Thursday then (my first day In the area) we had a couple of escapee murderers from Tennessee in Newberry! So we were requested to stay in. Lucky for me I could unpack and Sister Bell sweetly helped me and made me dinner! She's awesome :) Then Friday we went to West Columbia for ZTM we have a HUGE ZONE!!! :) Its awesome though! Probably 2/3 of the people were either in my last zone, served in Cowpens at one point or I came out with them :) its pretty awesome :) The Saturday was GENERAL CONFERENCE and I got to meet our Elders, they are Spanish speaking which is super cool because they are helping us pick up Spanish and we have a Spanish class that they teach and that we attend :) its awesome! Then Sunday we had Conference again and ate lunch at a member's in between sessions then saw this awesome couple, Cara and Andrew, I had heard lots about them so it was exciting for me :) I love beimg here in Newberry! We have some wonderful Investigators, like Lacenda and a wonderful Recent Convert that was actually the answer to one of my prayers on the first day I got here! I have been praying for some way to go to the temple... I feel its just what I need right now and I come to newberry and my first night here I find out that I have the opportunity to take this wonderful women, Sister Mary Gregory, through the temple in a few weeks!!!! it was an answer to my prayer!!!! :) I am sooooo happy for the kindness and tender mercies of the Lord :) I love all ya'll!!!!! :) You're in my prayers!
