25 June 2012
so, transfer call: im going to lone mountain stake, its up on the north west side of the city, up by where i served before. i'll be covering only one ward (which im excited for!) the mountain crest ward. we'll be living with members and after my two week stint in a car i'll be back on bike lol. and i'll be training a new missionary! which is what i was hoping for. i'll meet him tonight, so i'll tell you about him next week. im pretty sure hes gonna be the best missionary ever :) it'll be interesting because not only will he not know what he's doing, i wont know the area either, so hopefully he catches on quick cause i'll need his help!
so the end of this week has been full of saying goodbyes and packing (actually not much packing happened, that'll be an activity for this afternoon i suppose). i hate saying goodbyes! being a missionary is weird with that. you go to an area knowing that you will only be there for 3-6 months, yet while youre there (if you're doing your job right) youre trying to build the strongest relationships you can build. and then as soon as those strong relationships start to materialize, it's time to move. time is flying though, i cant believe its almost july!
hopefully it's cooled down for you in ohio, i heard it was pretty nasty hot/humid for a couple days. every time i pray i thank God for the sunshine and the warm weather. i figure there must be some reason i should be thankful for the warm weather, and that if i keep praying it i might someday figure it out lol.
so i know this little girl named kelsy and she is 3 days older than lily! (so naturally, kelsy is one of my favorite people) yesterday, as i was saying goodbye to chris and ashley (kelsy's parents) kelsy and her siblings attack elder christensen and i with water guns!!!!! it was a lot of fun, my tie got a little messed up, and our car windows need to be washed, but it was worth it lol. made me wonder what all my little siblings are up to.
i guess i'll have lots more to tell you next time. please pray for me and my new son, we're gonna need some help in this new area!
