Almost New Year

So, to start this off, MOLLIE CAME TO CHURCH!!! We were so happy about that. Well the rest of this week we went caroling at a retirement home on Christmas Eve. That was really fun... I know a lot has happened but I can't really remember....hehe...sorry

I'm doing good. It's really slow out here, but were working hard. My companion is doing good. We're having lots of fun.  2014 is coming really fast.

Emergency Transfer

So, this week we had an ET (Emergency Transfer). I stayed in Beaver Lake and Sister Batton went to Lake Hills. My new companion is Sister Smalley.  She is from Queensland, Australia and has been out 3 months. We're having LOADS of fun.

It snowed this week and it was her first time seeing snow. So, we had snowball fights; it was really fun. She's also helping me work on my Australian accent. :D So that's really fun.

And, war was officially declared this week as well against us and Elder Tongish. Brother Jones did payback pretty good. We also had a Zone Breakfast this week. "Santa" came and gave us a nutella! That was really fun. I also got Renee's package at the Zone Breakfast. And the best part about the Zone Breakfast was that "Santa" gave Elder Tongish coal. It was so great!!

Well, I think that's all I have for this week. So I'll probably be calling (well skyping) around 2-4 ish....

Christmas Coming

So, this week we had a mission Christmas party that was really fun.  I saw Hermana Norton and Sister Thompson at it.  Pres. Wood and his wife put on a live nativity.  It was really funny. Oh yeah, I also saw Elder Kirk there too.

I also got the package the family sent me.  Thank you so much!! We love it!!! (The toffee is already gone).

Then we also went and saw this former investigator named Maggy Mow. She gave us these pencils that turn into pens too! They're pretty cool.

So we had a church tour with Molly and Max when Elder Tongish (a Zone Leader) walked in in the middle of it and interrupted it XP.

He also took our phone and took pics of himself and set it as our background. So we talked to Brother Jones (he's a High Counclior) and he has the zone Leaders over for breakfast every once in a while and he happened to have them over today so he put TOO much salt on it. so I'm curious to see how that turns out.

We also get to teach Sis. Turtel!!! She used to live in the Duthie Hill ward, then she moved to our ward boundaries. Then the ward split so she ended up in the Klahanie Ward then she just moved to the Pine Lake Ward but wants Sisters to teach her so we're teaching her and she told us she's ready to take the next step!!! We're super excited for her!!! We also built a gingerbread house this week that was really fun.

We also helped Sis. Church out some more and I discovered that her husband makes bows and arrows...-drools- they look SUPER nice...

Then we met a lady last night named Sharon and she has horses!! She's going to let us help her with them. (Sadly I can't ride them :'( stupid rules )  but I'm super excited to help her out and to slowly teach her. I think that's all that has happened this week.

I just got done making cards with Sister Wood. There are ASL missionaries, Chinese Missionaries, Tongan, Samoan, Russian, and Spanish...  I think that's it.

Have a great week@!!!! And p-day is on Christmas. And that's about all I know for next week.

New Week

So, this week has been good. Our first day together was great. We both somehow managed to cut ourselves. We're not really sure how we did that... Sister Batton is from Lancaster, California and she's been out for 6 months.

We bought Elf ears and we wore them at the Christmas party. We got a pictures taken with Santa. We also helped Sister Church put her Christmas tree up. We wore our elf ears then too. Sister Church taught us how to make these really cool fire starters!! All it is is an egg carton, lint or cotton balls, and wax. They work really well.

We taught Molly this week too. She has so many hidden concerns it's making my head hurt.

Hmmm....we went to the temple today which was awesome!!! And p-day will be next Tuesday too, then it'll be back to Mondays.

We made a new District name. It used to be "the forgotten district" then it was "Hiroshima" then it was "Post H." and now it's "Mcgemperfish part 2" because the district is Elder Mcneil, Elder Gemperlin, Elder Fisher, and Elder Partlow.

I also saw Hermana Norton at the Temple (I went to EFY with her and she went to Lone Peak High School too). She  was in Elder (Jordan) Stauffer's district at the MTC and I saw Elder Kirk at the temple as well.

So, I guess I'll just start off with transfers. I didn't get transferred but Sister Wright did. My new companion is Sister Batton. She's from California.

Then this week... well after I emailed last week, we ended up doing visa pictures which took forever!!! We had to go to 3 different places, then to the mission office the next day. Then, on Thanksgiving, we had a Holiday Activity. My zone and the Redmond Zone got together at the Bellevue Stake Center and we played Sports for 3 hours. Then we just member hopped for Thanksgiving. It was good.

We had dinner with the Sansings yesterday. I love that family. They're so funny!! And they have a Havanese dog who is just so adorable!!!!! And yeah.... that's all that I can remember of what happened this last yeah....
