Not too much to report this week.
We moved back in with Grandma Marla Vail on Saturday, it took most of the day. I'll miss the Haugens but I'm glad to be back, I missed it.
So our address is back to being:
12806 Sunrise Dr NE Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
We had Zone Conferences this week where Sister Scheer and I gave a training in one of the breakout sessions. There's no growth in the comfort zone, right? It turned out pretty good. We also found out that effective immediately we aren't going to have any more Transfer Meetings. So, 2.5 weeks short of my transfer meeting... I'm kind of sad. But I know our mission will be blessed for following the counsel of the apostles.
The ward threw a New Years Eve party that was super fancy (Pres Ogden showed up in a tux) and way fun but we didn't stay long because it wasn't very "missionary" and we felt awkward. We helped set up and make mini cheesecakes and run the popcorn machine though - pretty fun.
We don't have much time today - we spent the morning in Silverdale with Grandma Vail. A nice lady at the mall stopped us and bought us Subway :) People are great.
I'll be starting to send some boxes home this next week... moving so much has made me realize how much extra stuff I'm carrying around but I'll probably leave a good portion of my clothes behind for other sisters to scavenge.
I am so thankful for my mission. I can't put in words how much I love it and how much I'll miss it but I know that God has a plan, and everything is going to work out. I know that God loves us so much, I've seen the many ways He shows it. I am so grateful for the Spirit and how much I've learned about listening to it. I'm so thankful for the Atonement - I can't put in words how much I've learned about that. I know that every bit of Christ's life was motivated by love - for us. I love Him with all my heart. I wish I had lots more time to write but time's short. I love you so much and I'm so grateful for your support and love, especially these last many months. Talk to you soon!
Doing "My Plan" last week this guy looks like Baby Brent... :)
also, Sis Haugen has an airbrusher and she did our makeup... pretty high class.
Bainbridge threw a New Years Eve party that was super high class - we ran the popcorn machine. They brought in a DJ and had all sorts of crazy things. It was super fun (we only stayed a little bit cause we felt kinda uncomf with the bumpin music and party things. ha. #missionarylife)
Exchanges with Sister Kama! I love her!
Driving back from Sequim and got stuck at the draw bridge for abit while the navy ships went through.
Almost every day this week we would wake up and everything would be frozen over. It's been chilly.
