This week has been really crazy! 🙂 But so much fun!
So I got a call on Tuesday from the Assistants and they told me that they got the transfer calls mixed up for some reason. They said that Sister Bastian wasn’t going to be my companion and that my new companion was actually Sister Alverson. It was really weird. They don’t do that very often.
So the beginning of the week was really busy with saying goodbye to everyone and getting everything ready for the elders to come in. We actually got everything done in time. Then on Thursday we left at 7:45 to the transfer point! Sister Palmer got on the transfer loop and I had to wait with the other missionaries for Sister Alverson. Then we got into Harrison at around 4. So it was sort of a long day.
The past couple days we have just been meeting a whole bunch of people. Yesterday was our first Sunday in church and the ward is Awesome! There are about 50 or 60 people who come to church regularly. Which is pretty small since Harrison is a pretty big town. It’s so much larger than any of the areas I’ve served in. We met with the Ward Mission Leader the first night here and he’s from England! He’s super cool. And we met with the Bishop and met his family. They are super awesome. We spent 2 hours talking about the ward and the people he wants us to work with. There are TONS of part member families here so it will be really neat to work with them.
We met a super cute lady named Lavitia with a little boy who just moved into the ward. She has been less active for 14 years and she wants to come back to church. She asked us to teach her all the lessons again and see her twice a week. She’s super spunky and really excited about coming back to church.
Also there’s a part member family we are going to start working with who want to go to the temple. The wife’s name is Mona and she’s had some really cool spiritual experiences and she really wants to go to the temple! She just needs to keep smoking and come back to church. And her husband wants to get baptized too. We are super excited for them.
That’s about it for this week! We are really excited to be here cause there’s tons of potential here and lots of work to do!! 🙂
Hurrah for Israel!
Love, Sister Moon
