So I totally don’t have very many pictures this week because I switched SD cards from my camera…oops? Oh well they are good pictures. (:
So this week, we obviously had transfers! I was sad to loose Sister Crandall but she went to one of the best places ever!!! Which is Tupelo Mississippi!! How fun! I love that place! She is going to rock it. (:
My new companion is Sister Nelson! She is from Elwood, Utah. When I asked her where that was she said Tremonton…I think that is how that is spelled??? I don’t even know. But she is wonderful! She was trained by Sister Brunner so we have that companion in common! I can’t remember if there is anymore haha. Oh well.
So the fun stuff that happened this week! The first day we were together! An ice storm hit and let me tell y’all, EVERYTHING iced over. Also, the funny thing, we ran out of toilet paper that day.. /: So we decided to walk to Krogers which is only right across the street from our apartment complex and guess what!? IT WAS CLOSED!!!! So we went all day without any toilet paper, we had to use paper towels, let me just say, those aren’t the softest things… (: But we decided to go ice skating in the parking lot because there was a big layer of ice over almost the entire thing! It was so fun and poor Sister Nelson totally biffed it!! It was HILARIOUS!!!! We had fun. (:
We went tracting a lot this week and got a good amount of potentials to start teaching. We just have to go back! Also, church was so fun!!! I think it was the most interesting Relief Society I have ever attended. We had someone say that she thinks she is as close to perfect as she can get without being resurrected. IT was interesting. But other than that. We had an excellent week!
I look forward to seeing what this week will hold! Not sure about the weather yet, but that won’t stop us right!? (:
I love y’all so much! Have the best week ever!! If you are struggling, remember to breathe, pray and rely on the Lord! (:
Love,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond

Howdy y’all!!

Well, there is so much to say! So I will try to be as short as possible because I will be making up pictures from 2 weeks!
First, the only pair of jeans I came out with…ripped. Yikes!!!!! I had a giant hole in the butt and I didn’t know!! Super sad! ):
Does the second picture look like a hamburger?? well guess what it’s not!! I guess it’s like a view of a landscape haha. From far away it looks like a hamburger!
The first week where it snowed!!
This next picture, Sister Crandall and I went walking in the bitter cold and it was so cold I had to cover my face!!! We felt like arabian knights!! (:
Sister Crandall and I when we went tracting at night when it was 17 degrees outside!! We found this awesome note someone had power washed into their driveway! *ROLL TIDE!!!*

This is when it snowed last week and it turned all icy, when we were on exchanges, it doesn’t look that bad, but there is a layer of ice underneath that snow!!

Then it was raining and Sister Crandall were contacting for like an hour and we got soaked!! I know it’s a horrible picture ha but hey, looked how wet I got!!
 .
Alright! Now I can start from last week! So last Monday we went to the Space and Rocket center with April!! (: It was really cool! I plan on going again with my parents! 😀 So there will be lots of pictures from there!
#4 picture is a giant room that has lots of screens and shows like the same thing….ALL AROUND YOU! You literally are surrounded ha.

The Huntsville Box

Hey y’all!! I hope everyone is doing alright. (: I know I am!!
 .
This week, my email isn’t going to be very long, just a warning. (:
 .
First I already told y’all where I am so first things first, my area boundaries consist of a 5 mile by 5 mile box. Yes, a box. I’m literally living in a box! It’s quite fun! There’s so much to do here though!! And within in our little box, there is a ward. It is the smallest ward boundaries in the South Eastern region of America! (: Cool right? I may or may not go crazy…
 .
My companion is stellar!! She is so diligent and steadfast! I love her so much! We already get along so great! She has also been companions with some of my past companions. Sister Platt and Sister Wittwer! How fun. (: I think it’s cool how some of my companions have other similar companions as me, so it’s bound to happen! (:
.
Some exciting things, at transfers I got to see Sister Alexis Rogers!! SAY WHAT!? I love her so much! She is beautiful as ever!! I’m so happy that she has decided to serve a mission! I can’t wait for her to start her adventures here in the Alabama Birmingham Mission! (:
Also at transfers, I saw a lot of my past companions and I took pictures with them! That was fun! (:
 .
So just yesterday, right before our dinner appointment, we were tracting, we had been tracting for maybe 2 hours already and this last house(we weren’t planning on having it be the last house) a very kind gentleman let us in and he had all these AMAZING questions. His wife was just soaking it all in and didn’t have much to say…but HE, asked all the right questions. We were able to explain a lot of things he had questions about and even give him some new information. It’s amazing how the Lord blesses us because of our diligence. (: LOVE IT!!
Well that’s it for this week y’all! I hope that y’all have a splendid week! (:
 .
Love,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond

And Old Friend, New Companion, and New City

Posted on Updated on

Sister Drummond has been transferred to Huntsville, Alabama. She has spent over half of her mission in Mississippi, and it was hard for her to leave but she’s also excited for her next adventure. She goes where she’s supposed to without complaint.

I was super excited to see a picture of Sister Drummond today with her old friend Alex Rogers. Sister Rogers and Sister Drummond grew up in the same ward and went to school together. What a treat to be able to see a familiar face and exchange warm hugs. (Thanks to April Cook for the pictures.)

Her new companion is Sister Crandall from Washington State. They are STLs in Huntsville. Stay steadfast in Christ.
