This has been the most craziest week of my life!
Let’s start with Monday night: We picked up the Hamilton Sisters (Sister Fausett and Sister Howard) and headed off to Utica to drop off Sister Hallsted and Howard at the mission home for their temple trip the next day. Sister Fausett and I spent the night at the Utica Sisters apartment and worked with Sister Pange the next day. It was a great exchange! I found out that I know Sister Fausett’s cousins, they went to my high school! It was fun to get to know the both of them!
On Wednesday morning we picked up our companions and headed back to our areas. We also found out that the Cooperstown area is closing down for a bit. Hopefully it will reopen next transfer! Anyway, we had to clear out the entire apartment! So from then on, in between appointments, we cleaned and packed. I packed for a place that I don’t know where I am going!
On Wednesday afternoon, we had the craziest District Meeting ever, I guess on of the Elders got a call from President Rogers and he was asking how much luggage can pack into a Equinox (The kind of car we have) So the whole District was freaking out about where everyone was going! It was nuts! Well, District Meeting was really great! We learned how we can better study, not only on our missions but for the rest of our lives!
On Thursday, we had dinner with a few of our investigators! A sweet old couple and their neighbor, who we are also teaching. It was a great meal! At the end of our visit we exchanged addresses and said our good byes! The old couple were going on a trip the next day. the next day, us and the neighbor, went over and cleaned the dishes for them! I will miss them but definitely keep in touch!
We basically cleaned and packed all day Saturday! I still can’t believe that we were able to get it all clean! We just prayed the whole time that it would get done in time! That’s just another testimony builder on my mission, I know that Heavenly Father will answer all of our prayers!
I’ve been getting transfer calls for the past 15 months, by now it just seems like a very normal that happens to me, I get a new companion, I leave in just a few short days, etc. But I get the fact that it was Sunday, and we were leaving the next day and I still had no idea where I was going, sounds a little crazy…It wasn’t until Sunday that I realized just how crazy it sounds! The whole branch thought that was the craziest thing ever!
Sunday night finally came and we found out where I am going and who I would be with! I am going to be transferred to Corning with Sister Holden! Corning is in the Owego Stake (The same stake that Binghamton is in) and Sister Holden is going home next transfer with Sister Chandler! It will be fun to have most (Most likely all but one) of my companions home when I get home! 🙂
I will really miss the branch here! Everyone has been so nice! Their testimonies are amazing and they have all become my friends! I’ll definitely keep in touch with all or them! The area as well, we have met some pretty nice people in Cooperstown! I will definitely come again! Sister Hallsted is also awesome! We have done some pretty amazing work here! I am grateful for her example to me of faith! She has really strengthened my testimony!
I love you all and I hope you have a great week! I’ll be writing again, but this time in Corning!
Loves yas so so so much!
