Hastening the Work and Transfer Calls

Posted on Updated on

Dearest Family & Friends,
 .
Let me just say, I really don’t know where this week went or what happened, except for a few things. So first let’s talk about Elder Zwick. (:
 .
Tuesday We were in Huntsville, Alabama because Elder Zwick of the Quorum of the Seventy came to our mission and wow oh wow!! It was so good! I don’t think I stopped feeling the spirit throughout that entire meeting!! So the other thing, Elder Zwick announced that we will be receiving ‘DIGITAL‘ area books. Which means!!! WE ARE GETTING I PADS!!! Yes, I just said I pads. Between now and January the Alabama Birmingham Mission will be an I pad mission!!! Who knows about Facebook now, but I just think it will be exciting to have ipads!! I did NOT think I would be receiving an I pad while on my my mission. It just shows that the Lord really is hastening his work! (: The other cool thing is that during our lunch break, Elder and Sister Zwick sat at our table!! It was so fun to get to know him and his wife. If y’all remember his General Conference talk in April, I met the woman that jumped out of that moving truck!!
 .
Thursday funnies: We were visiting a members home and the member (Sister Swift) was asking us if we were getting enough fluids because it is really hot, well I said yes and Sister Platt was silent. I totally called her out and said that Sister Platt does not carry a water bottle. Sister Swift got so mad and said “I have a water bottle, let me get it for you.” Sister Platt in protest begins saying, “Sister Swift I don’t want your water bottle!” But Sister Swift immediately cuts her off by saying, “Shut up.” And walk in her house to get the water bottle. I was laughing so hard and  I just love that woman! She is so stubborn. I LOVE HER!!
 .
Saturday transfer calls!!! Yikes. Of course we didn’t get our call till like 10:28!!! But the funny thing is before we get our call, President Hanks calls us and I’m looking at the phone thinking ‘crap he only calls if someone is going to be a Sister Training Leader.’ I then begin freaking out because I have only been in West Point for 1 transfer and I thought for sure Sister Platt would be staying with me! Well it turns out, Sister Platt will be leaving me and she has accepted the call to be a Sister Training leader! (: BUT, after he is done talking to her, he asks the question, “Is your companion excited to be training?” Well y’all I will now be training someone. I am very nervous and excited at the same time. !I’m going to be a mother in the mission life! Yay! Haha. So fun. I hope I can train this new Sister into a Christlike and steadfast missionary! Keep me in your prayers y’all! (:
 .
That’s really about it except for today Monday we went to Columbus for our last district activity! It was so much fun!! We played tons of games and ate lunch. We swapped music and just had a fun time! The funny thing though is that the STL’s and ZL’s (sister training leaders and zone leaders) are in my district and each of them are getting a new companion. The other elders are getting split apart and the one that is staying is also training!! Then the 3rd set of sisters are staying together because one is still in training. EVERYONE in our district will most likely be training. Whether a new missionary or just a new ZL or STL. CRAZY!! (:
 .
I love y’all so much!! Have a great week and remember to stay close to our Heavenly Father! (:

Love,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond

T.O.A.S.T moment!! We had this sign at the intersection and ran up to people and read scriptures to them. It was so awkward!! That is why it was a toast moment!! T.O.A.S.T = Thrive On Awkward Situations....the T is just awkward
