Okay, this week was a crazy and emotional week. Here’s how it started.
Tuesday was transfer day and we were helping a couple of the sisters move around. So. We drove EVERYWHERE. We went to the top of Whittier and then to Lakewood and then to Long Beach and everywhere. Holy cow. It was a lot of driving. There were a couple of amazing things that happened in a couple of hours. While we were at the mission office we saw SISTER CARPENTER. AHHHH. It was one of the best moments of my life. She was an office missionary and they went home in January and she was visiting! I loved her. I was so happy 🙂
AND THEN we picked Sister Biberston(friend from beginning of mission) up to come to Whittier! Ahhhhhh. It was the greatest. I am so excited because she is now in my district and zone. It’s going to be a party.
We helped one of the ward members who had lived in the same house for 60 years pack up and move. They had SO MUCH STUFF. They were planning on leaving the next day but they had so much stuff we didn’t think it was possible. We were there for about 3 hrs. We folded clothes, packed boxes, organized hangers. It was crazy.
Anyways, the rest of our week was fun and very busy! We had exchanges on Friday and I was with Sister Crowell! She’s from Hawaii. I love her! We had some really fun conversations on the street with some interesting people. One of them was Daniel and he told us that Christ was going to come in 7 years and that lava will engulf L.A. He was crazy.
Saturday we went to Bob and Judy’s and she said the sweetest thing. Judy turns to me and says, “When you’re older and you look back on your mission and you wonder if it was worth it, just remember that I said “Yes.”” I about cried. I am so grateful that I know them and that I have the opportunity to build relationships with people here. How incredible is it?! I LOVE being a missionary. It’s so hard and difficult, but so worth it.
Sunday Sister Henderson gave a wonderful talk on covenants.
Today we went with Millie (90 year old friend) to her husband’s grave at Rose Hills. This cemetery is GIGANTIC. I have never seen such a large cemetery and it was packed today for Memorial day. It was really sad. She really misses him.
I love you!
