First off, I MISS CARLIN & EUREKA!!!!! I love you all very much! I will return someday :)
This last week has been crazy!
Monday & Tuesday were full of trying to set appointments, saying goodbyes, & packing (fun.)
Wednesday was Transfer Day & Sister Felagai got split up & Sister Michaud (mi-Show) became my new companion (one of the sweetest Sisters ever)! We spent the day getting settled, unpacking, & going around with the Zone Leaders to visit different people (it was formerly their area).
Our new missionaries are Elders Stene & Weed, who took over Carlin/Eureka, Elder Gellert, who is being trained by Elder Altamirano, & Elder Haynes, who is finishing Elder Clunas' training.
Thursday was Thanksgiving! We had a good afternoon dinner with the family we now live with & did more unpacking, visiting people, etc.
Friday we met one of our first investigators!! I'll call her Dina. She is a super nice lady, & her daughter is so funny! They believe in God & Christ and are open to learning! We can't wait to continue teaching them the lessons.
We've also met several other people who we will be working with & teaching--it is very exciting to have so much work to do right off the bat!
Saturday & Sunday we continued visiting more people that the Elders had been working with.
Last night we also went to a special nighttime church meeting for miners. During the service, a man who was taught by other Elders was confirmed a member of the church & received the gift of the Holy Ghost. The Spirit was so strong there!
I look forward to what this next week brings! Take care til next Monday!
Be faithful & strong because He was!
~Sister San Diego
p.s. to you (mom n dad)--Elder Gellert is from Laie! He said Willie is in his Ward back home--not sure if it's family ward or ysa. I met a family by the last name of Carroll, & Bro. Carroll served in Grampa & Gramma Ching's area in 2001--he said he thinks he knew them :)
