One Crazy Week

I don't know why it was crazy, but it was...

Monday was officially the start of the new transfer. After we were done emailing I did some family history, since we email from the family history library. I found 2 names! I have been pretty stoked about that all week, I also found some birth and death dates for people, so that's sweet!!

Tuesday was Sister V---'s funeral, we didn't get to go, obviously as it was in Utah, but President Shumway did ask us to read Alma 40-42 during companion study, and at 11:00 (when the funeral started) we all knelt down and said a prayer. That was really cool, it was nice to know that all the missionaries in the OTM were doing the same.

On Wednesday we had Zone training, during it, Sister W--- and I had a bit of a revelation. We're going to do a 100% member present week! We're calling it Ace Week. All of our lessons will have a member there! We're doing it from September 29th to October 5th.

Thursday was a pretty normal Thursday aka weekly planning. We laid out some pretty intense plans to make Ace Week happen.

Friday and Saturday were normal missionary days. We visited people, had lessons, it was fun (:

On Sunday --- came out with us. He's 16 and awesome. He follows us in his jeep since we can't give him a ride and he can't give us a ride. He's a pretty cool kid and will be a great missionary one day! :D

This week I want to tell you all how cool family history is! When I found those names I was so excited! I had found out the names of someone I am related to! Part of my family! They were lost, we didn't know who they were, and now we've found them! YAY! It's soo cool! Seriously, just do family history. It's amazing.

Goodbye Ozark, Hello Nevada

This week was really good. Most of the week in Ozark was spent saying goodbye to people, which was really sad...

Thursday was, of course transfer day. We woke up early, finished packing, and somehow, miraculously fit everything into Sister ---'s little car and drove to transfer point! We after the transfer loop got to us and everyone got off, Sister S--- met her new companion Sister E---, we met the new sisters who would be in Ozark and Sister S--- and I said goodbye. Right before she left, I looked around at who was still waiting at the transfer point (I was going to be on the 2nd transfer loop that would get to Mount Vernon at 1:30), I realized there were no sisters, and only elders... I asked Sister S--- if I was going to be the only sister.... we found a zone leader, and he checked and I was, in fact the only sister that would be waiting until 1:30. Fortunately, there were a member couple, the ---, who had given one of the Zone Leaders a ride and the wife could be my companion. If they hadn't of been there I could have stayed, I just would have had to have been with two elders at all times and it would have been extremely awkward. I was talking to the ---, anyway, I found out that they know the Snows!! WHAT? They served a couples mission and knew J--- from when they worked in the office together! *sings* It's a small world after all...

So, the other missionaries eventually got there and I found some Sisters to hang out with. Then, transfer loop began. I was able to get off at just the next stop, yay! And I met Sister W---! YAY!!! She is really cool! We have a lot in common and I think this is going to be a really fun transfer!!

I am excited to see what Heavenly Father has in store for me here in Nevada!
