Hello, all! Today was a crazy week.
So we went to transfers and the Worldwide Missionary Broadcast on
Wednesday. Before it starts, we hear that we are not staying in
Odessa, but moving to Hudson! Sister Hunt apparently knew this all
along, but it was news to Sister Swanson and I. There will no longer
be missionaries in Odessa, but the Land O Lakes sisters will take it
over as needed. President told us we would probably stay in Odessa
another week, and most recently he said he hopes to have us moved by
Sunday. That might not happen because we don't have an apartment yet.
We will have to see! Anyway, we are pretty excited because there will
be a lot for us to do there. There are already 2 sets of elders
there, so that will be interesting. At the broadcast itself, there
were some changes made to our schedule and some other things and it
was a huge blessing because our mission had already been doing some of
the changes. It made it an easier adjustment. It is still pretty
weird, though. What a crazy week full of changes!
Nicole came to the Pinewood Derby on Friday, but that was pretty much
the only contact we had with her. Her family isn't sick anymore, so
hopefully we will be able to teach her again this week.
Yesterday Sister Swanson gave an amazing talk in church and we all
taught part of a lesson on the Two Great Commandments (Matthew
22:36-40). After church, we got to go to the mission home for
interviews with President and to talk a little more about going to
Hudson. That was the first time I've been able to go there since my
first day here. Speaking of which, I hit my 9 month mark on Friday!
I am halfway through my mission. I'm not sure how I feel about
Alright, well, if there is anything y'all want to send me, it would be
best to send it to the mission office for now since nobody knows when
we are moving. I hope you all have a great week!
