“Sister Drummond, please pack your bags. You will be getting transferred to a new area and receiving a new companion.”
I’m getting transferred out of West Point, Mississippi! Any ideas where I might be going?
I’ll let y’all know either on Wednesday or next week! (:
So this week has been a complete blur. I swear as I am out longer on my mission the less I can remember…I now know what it’s going to feel like when I’m old. o: BUT! I do remember some things.
TUESDAY: We had interviews with the President Hanks. I just want to say, I LOVE THAT MAN WITH ALL MY HEART! He is amazing. Truly amazing. He inspires me to be a better missionary. (: Another great thing that happened is that while we were waiting for our interview time, we were able to watch, “Meet the Mormons” WOW! This movie really is fantastic! For those of you who don’t know what it is or have not seen it, GO SEE IT RIGHT NOW!!! You will not regret it. (Mom, you will cry. ;)) I also have a new dream to go to Costa Rica. (: Haha.
WEDNESDAY–THURSDAY:I was on exchanges with Sister Kudlacek pronounced Coodlacheck…and she is AMAZING! I was in Columbus, MS and wow it was so much fun. Again inspired to be a better missionary. I think this mission truly has the best missionaries ever! (: Not that I’m biased or anything….
FRIDAY: We saw an investigator who we haven’t seen in a while! Which was awesome! And we also got ‘dropped’ by another investigator but I don’t think he really means it because for one, he still plans on coming to church and he believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God! Say what!? There is still something there. I just don’t think he understand thatBook of Mormon came from God THROUGH Joseph Smith, because he also doesn’t believe that there could be a prophet, so we know where we need to pick up the missing link. (:
Over all this week was very good. We have 4 new investigators which is phenomenal! (: It is sad that I will be leaving Sister Merriam. ): I know she is going to do great things here in West Point!
That’s it for now y’all! Have a blessed week and know that you are loved! Not only by me, but by your Father in Heaven as well. (:
Not much happened this week. So this email is going to be relatively short…
So for those of y’all who didn’t know, this Thursday is my 1 year mark in the field! Crazy. And because my MTC companion, Sister Zackrison is now serving in Booneville we were able to take a picture together! (: AND! Get this, she is training this transfer as well and our companions were roommates in the MTC! It was like a mini reunion! (:
For one, I can NOT believe how fast this week has gone by… It seriously feels like just yesterday I was typin out another email to y’all. Wow. in 2ish days the month of October is going to be half over! Yikes…
This week was a bit rough, our teaching pool has dropped to almost 0…and our investigators are bein picky ha. But they do have their agency, and we cannot force them to do anything.
My good friend Jalisa though, she is slowly gettin there. (: She has agreed to be baptized. She KNOWS she needs to. I asked her the other day if she believes the things we are teaching are true and she said yes! (: I then proceeded to ask if she KNOWS if these things are true. And she said not yet, but based on how she has been feeling, she believes she will get an answer soon. I KNOW she will get an answer. (: It’s so happy!
Other then that, we have been doin a lot of finding! o:
Yesterday or more of this weekend was stake conference and because I am still in the Tupelo Stake I was able to see lots of members and friends from Booneville! It was so fun! (: I love them and miss them dearly. BUT I am so grateful for being to serve in West Point. I have come to love and make friendships here just as well. (:
I hope y’all have a FANTASTIC week and find the tender mercies of the Lord. (:
This may be a short…er… email. I’m sorry. I run out of time a lot on these computers. /:
How did y’all like Conference!? I LOVED IT!!! I hope y’all watched it in the first place! If I had to choose my favorite talk…I couldn’t, because they were all just so dagum good! (: But I will try to pick some out…
Those are the talks right of the top of my head that I can think of that I was blown away by and that I think everyone, EVERYONE should look up. #willchangeyourlife
Sister Merriam is amazing y’all. I love her so much! She really is like a mini me! We have matched…not on purpose…..for like the past 4 days. It has been really weird haha. Funny, but weird.
I can’t remember what else happened this week, besides, the best lesson I have ever taught on my mission!!! #wow It was with our investigator Mitch. I don’t know if I have talked about him but I’m gunna keep it relatively short, because y’all, I haven’t emailed my mission president yet! /: YIKES! BUT! Let’s just say, he felt the spirit so strongly he thought he was having a heart attack! It scared him. But at least he knows that God loves him and we mean business! We keep him in our prayers and know that his heart will be softened one day soon. (:
Thanks for all y’all do for me and stay steadfast in Christ! (:
