This week was good!!

Don’t have very much time..
We had zone training and I was very proud of how we did! Sister Nelson and I, I think, nailed our trainings and I’m really happy with what I said. (:
I went on an exchange with Sister Charlesworth!! Do y’all remember her?? She is so great. (:
Anyways, that’s about it. I love y’all so much and I hope y’all have the best week ever!!
Also some good news, IT’S FINALLY WARMING UP!!!! It went from freezing cold one week, to the next week hitting the 80’s like today! (: YAY!!!

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.

Walkin in a Winter Wonderland!!

Posted on Updated on

Alrighty! I don’t have a lot time today because we are going to the Space and Rocket Museum with a member today so yea! But I wanted to share of our winter wonderland experience!

Okay, all week we had been hearing about the bad weather that was going to hit Friday in the afternoon. We asked random people on the streets about it, we talked to members, and we even checked our weather radio! It was to be cold ALL week. And yes, it was. Sister Crandall and I went walking and tracting in 17 degrees and lower because of the windchill…and let me just say, when it’s that cold outside with humidity….I felt like I was going to literally become Frozen….just like Ana. 😉
It’s a type of cold that just doesn’t sit outside of you, it literally will eat through all your layers and sting to your bones. It’s insane! But not even that can stop the work of the Lord! We had a lot of people tell us we were crazy!
There was one morning we turned on our weather radio to hear what it had to say for the day and it told us that: ‘The windchill could cause frostbite, hypothermia, and DEATH.’ Sister Crandall and I looked at each other with wide eyes and stunned faces. It was really funny. (:
I was also able to go on exchanges with Sister Conant this week! We were actually on exchanges when the snow hit so we were stuck inside most of our exchange. It was fun cause we got to sit and talk a lot about who knows what! (:
This week has been good! I have really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to see what this week holds! More snow I hear! o:
I love y’all! Have a great week!
Love,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond
ps. I will have to send pictures next week!

The Huntsville Box

Posted on

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

Last week of transfers!!

Posted on Updated on

Welp, as said in my subject line of this email. This is the last week of the transfer, so y’all know what that means! I have transfer calls on Saturday! SO, DO NOT SEND ANY MAIL NEXT WEEK UNTIL AFTER MONDAY. Got it? (: Good.

This week was really good. We went tracting in the FREEZING cold. That was fun and awesome haha. We got a lot of potential investigators and I am really excited to go follow up with them all.
 .
We went on exchanges with some sisters. The Amory sisters, which are Sister Robison and Sister Mason. Sister Mason came to Tupelo with me as Sister Allred went to Amory with Sister Robison. It was really fun. Now here’s a story! Sister Mason and I were tracting one morning and not having too much success because it’s a weekday. But that’s okay! So we decide to go get some lunch because I’m always hungry and there is a nice Chinese buffet on the side of town we were on that has a really nice deal for lunch. So we went! And while we were there, we had really yummy food and then at the end of our meal when we were stuffed beyond anything…we waited patiently for our check. And the waiter brought us our fortune cookies but no check. So we waited a little longer (it felt like forever) and finally the waiter came to and said, “your meal has already been paid for. I don’t know by who.” WHAT!???? Alrighty y’all, that NEVER happens here. It’s really rare. It’s not like we are in Utah and see members everywhere who will so willingly pay for missionary’s food. It was so amazing!! (: So to whomever it was! THANK YOU! (:
 .
Then I went on exchanges with the Booneville sisters, Sister Smith and Williams. I went to Booneville with Sister Williams and Sister Smith came to Tupelo with Sister Allred. It’s always fun to go back to old areas. (: I forgot to get a picture with Sister Williams. ): There is a lot happening in Booneville and I am so happy to see the successes of the missionaries in that area. (:
 .
Also!! During interviews with President Hanks…a pipe broke at the church so we were so lucky enough to clean up! Haha. Good thing we were there! o:
 .
Well, that’s it for now y’all. I love y’all! Have the best week ever and remember, no mail next week…until AFTER Monday. (: Thank y’all!
 .
Love forever,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond

Lots of New Adventures

Posted on

Hey y’all! It’s going to be short this week!
As all of y’all know transfers occurred on Wednesday and I got my new baby missionary! (: Sister Merriam is full of sparks and so much energy! She is excited to be a missionary and I can’t wait to see what this transfer has in store for us! (:
Saturday we had dinner at a members house and we had a ‘greenie’ meal. Don’t tell….(: Sister Merriam’s food was all and COMPLETELY green. HA it was so fun and she took it like a champ. (: I am so proud of her and all that she does. She is pro-missionary already. (:
Sunday had an amazing experience happen! We finally went back to see this woman, Teresa and we found out she has met with missionaries before!! We have a set appointment with her to go back on Tuesday! I am so excited! She may not have been then, but her heart is definitely softer then it was! I can’t wait to begin teaching her!!
Also some Funnies!
I told Sister Merriam that I needed to marry someone who liked the Walking Dead so we can watch it together…(one day)…. and she said, “You can have walking dead babies!!!” Y’all it was SO funny. (: I died.
Sister Merriam was also caught in a stare on Thursday and she said, “Sorry, sometimes, my eyes just get stuck.”
Tuesday when I was still with Sister Platt, I was singing really loudly and very badly in the car and she turns towards me and says, “Hush you obnoxious weed.” Again, I died. Also while we were tracting on Tuesday Sister Platt says, “I need to relieve my waters.” I love how casually she says these things! I’m gunna start sayin that y’all. (:
Another funny thing that happened on Thursday! We were on team-ups with the Nickersons! A storm comes blowin in and we are stuck in this little car with a plate of cookies in front of this less active’s home who is NOT there. Well we wanted to leave the cookies for them with a note so they know who it is from, and we obviously wanted the note to stay dry so we were each looking for something to cover the plate with when Sister Nickerson yells “I have a diaper! A clean one!” Brother Nickerson says, “That’ll do!” First of all, why they have a diaper in their I’m not sure, because they are an older couple, and second the fact that she yelled a clean one?? Hmm….So Brother Nickerson puts the diaper over the plate of cookies and runs! As he is running back we see through the water smeared windows that he has the diaper on his head!! Now this is an odd sight for a brand new missionary who just got into the field! And I’m just dying in the corner laughing my head off. (: I love the South! (:
Well that is it for now y’all! Have a great week and remember to stay STEADFAST IN CHRIST!!
Love,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond
