Transfers!

E-mail from June 16, 2014

Well everyone, this week is transfers! I'm staying in Mishawaka and will be training a new missionary- eek! Sister Richardson is leaving and is going to tear it up wherever she goes! (Our guess is she's going to Bloomington. We'll find out Wednesday!) Also we are losing a fantastic missionary- Elder Sorenson. He's been the Assistant since before I came out and has done a great job at training us and being an example to our whole mission. We'll miss him, but I'm super excited to find out who will be the next one!

This week was a bit of an interesting week. We still taught lots of lessons, although our numbers were really low in comparison to how we normally teach. Despite that though, we exceeded the Standard of Excellence for total number of lessons. Obviously Heavenly Father is watching out for us. I don't know how we did it this week, but we made it through!

We've been struggling a little bit with illness and injury around here, but the best cure for those things in the world of missionaries is work! So, that's what we did. We continued to work and the Lord got us through and allowed us to see so much of His grace.

On Thursday we had dinner with one of our investigators. He is the sweetest man and took us to his brother-in-law's Italian restaurant. It's kinda a hole-in-the-wall type of place but so good!

Friday we had the best Law of Chastity lesson. Honestly, it's one of the hardest and yet best lessons to teach. It went really well and our investigator committed to live it and has already made a lot of changes! Hopefully things continue in this direction so they can continue progressing and seeing blessings in their life!

Well, I'm going to keep this one short this week! I'll let you know what all happens at transfers next Monday. Love you all!
