Anyway, I’m going to do my best and remember the good stuff that has happened this week! And funny stuff of course. 🙂
This week I was a total nut case. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, DAD YOU WERE TOTALLY IN THIS TOWN AND I KNEW IT ALL WEEK AND I JUST WANTED TO COME SAY HI! But really, I wanted to. On Friday evening, Sister Ferrin and I went to go and leave you a note but apparently you were gone. That was sad. It would’ve been cool to leave you a note. I’m glad you got to see the place though! Isn’t it beautiful here? I really do love it.
Well, it was super rainy here this past week. One night, there was a thunderstorm that was so loud it woke me up (GUYS IT WOKE ME UP. I DON’T EVER WAKE UP!) and then I was kinda ticked for two reasons. 1. I lost some very valuable sleep. and 2. I was half asleep so I didn’t think about the fact that I totally LOVE thunderstorms and I seriously regretted not getting out of bed and watching the lightning for a few minutes. But oh well. What’s done is done. But it was awesome. I love the rain. I’m pretty sure a lot of people get sick of it but I’m pretty confident that I am always going to feel like I’m best friends with the rain. Really. It’s so awesome. I love being outside in it, too. Sister Ferrin doesn’t particularly love being outside in it but we worked with it alright. 🙂
I’m actually pretty bummed that Sister Ferrin is leaving. We get along so well and we seriously just laugh our heads off all day long every day and I’m gonna miss that. Hopefully my new companion will understand my stupid humor and will laugh with me at everything. I get the senior comp chair in the study room. AKA a huge lazy boy recliner. So there’s no way she can look at me during studies and laugh because I’ll just look foolish and awesome all at the same time. Luckily, Sister Ferrin is the Sister Training Leader over this area so she’ll get to come on exchanges with me and we can have a nice little reunion party! Yeah!!!
I’ve been thinking about everyone at home a lot lately. And I need to just say thanks so much for emails, letters, thoughts, prayers, the works. It means the WORLD to me and things seem to come just when I need them. So thank you. 🙂
Oh let me tell you about the first time I’ve cried on my mission. It was so ridiculous. Last P Day, all the other missionaries were kind of acting like they were mad at us and we couldn’t figure out why and I felt SO BAD that I had maybe offended them for some reason and so I shed a few tears. It was a milestone. Water came out of my face. Anyway…
I think everyone should read this line from an email that Kyle sent me today: ” i want to stay in this area and finish baptisting some people that I am having to marry.” Hahaha I totally thought he was saying like he needs to be married to these people. Awkward.
I am trying to think of things but I really don’t remember the other stuff I was going to say because I forgot my journal. 😦 And I can’t even send these hilarious pictures that SF and I took the other night. Elder Howell left his Jimmer jersey at the church so we took it home and did impersonations of him and Elder Vassallo, and took pictures. We even hung up a sheet behind us and everything. Sister Ferrin was wearing a “PETA” shirt since Elder Vassallo tries to be vegan. But the shirt says “People Eating Tasty Animals.” It was great. I’ll send those next week.
You guys are all the best! I really love and miss everyone. But holy cow I’ve already done one transfer. It FLEW by. Only 12 more to go. 🙂
Have a great week everybody!
