Welcome to Henryetta!

This week was crazy! Most of Monday was spent with Sister M packing and me cleaning the apartment, getting ready for Sister B.

Tuesday was Okmulgee, Sister M was able to say goodbye to some people, but I don't think everyone that she wanted to. We set a baptismal date with ---!!! A couple of days later I realized that it wouldn't work because he said he wouldn't be able to come to church this Sunday, so... BUT STILL! He committed to a date! Yay ---!!!

Wednesday was Sister M's last day in Henryetta ): The bummer thing about transfers, and the last day in an area, is a lot of times you have to spend most of that day packing. Which stinks a lot because you would rather spend that day saying goodbye to people.

Thursday was transfer day *dun-dun-dun* Oh boy, that sounds horrible. It was a super long day.

Sister M left in the morning, and Sister B wasn't going to come in until the afternoon. I spend all day at the mission home, helping Sister Shumway with various projects :D It was fun. Sister B was my companion for a good chunk of the day. She was one of Sister M's previous companions, and is currently in... PAWHUSKA!! Guess what, the Sisters in Pawhuska found a family of 5, and they all got baptized! Whaat? It's great! I don't know the family at all, but I am so excited that Pawhuska got a baptism. Also, there are two young women aged girls (remember ---, Sister S? And, darn, I can't remember her name... she was a Young Woman, her mom was an investigator, her mom dropped us, but the Young Woman kept coming?) that both either have a date, or are getting SUPER close to getting baptized! YAHOO!!! CONGRATS PAWHUSKA!!! I am glad Sister B is there, she has a lot of faith in Pawhuska, and sees the potential it really has.

Transfer point was fun, it always is! I got to see Sister S, Sister S and Sister W before they went home. That was super nice. I love them a lot and I am going to miss them a ton!

Sister B came in around 4:30, and we were on the road by 5. Sister A (our awesome ride!) wanted to stop at Payless on Okmulgee on the way back, which we had no problem with (I love Payless a lot).

 We got back to the apartment by 6:30, ate dinner, and then weekly planned, WOOHOO! Exciting transfer night! :D

Friday morning we went to Okmulgee and Sister B got to meet people there we have been teaching! Yay! It was a great day!

Saturday we were able to see a lot of people. We helped at Recycled Blessings, this thrift store that a member owns that we volunteer at in town. It was a lot of fun!

Sunday was crazy, as they always are. Things are moving forward with ---'s baptism, which is awesome! She's a sweet girl!

Well, it's just about time for me to hop off. I love you all and hope you all have a splendiforus Thanksgiving!
