This week was so crazy and I only have 15 min to write this!!!
First order of business, I have been a missionary for 6 months!!!!!
So Monday I said goodbye to everyone in Aberdeen and that was sad. I can’t wait to go back and see everyone again and it has only been 7 days.
Then I got my daughter!!! (I call her my daughter, because I get to train her.) My new companion and I did all sorts of orientations, and went back to Dundee for the night. In the morning we went to our assigned area which is Montrose and Arbroath. They are in the same ward, but most of the time we will be in Arbroath, so we have to ride a bus into town and it takes forever and the buses run only once and hour… JK on Friday President and Sister Donaldson surprised us and took us for lunch and they gave us a car!!! What?!?! It was miracle! It is truly amazing. AND I’m driving… on the wrong side of the road… but we haven’t died yet. It actually isn’t too bad, I just haven’t driven in 6 months. The Elders that were here before left behind a lot of good people that love the missionaries and some people that are ready to be baptized! So a shout out for them! They also left behind an alarm clock hidden behind the couch that went off at 3 in the morning our first night, so we found it and unplugged it! Then in the morning we looked at it and there was a note on the top that said, “New missionaries, if you are reading this, you have found our alarm clock and we are back in America!!! Wooo! America!” Yeah, they both went home before we took over. That was a funny surprise. We have spent most of this week getting settled, getting lost, and watching conference!!!! Conference was so amazing, still haven’t watched it all yet but I’m excited to! It’s cool that when we watch it live, even though it’s at 5 pm, we are all united in doing the same thing and being fed spiritually by the Lord’s servants. Also that my family is eating bacon and drinking orange juice and in there PJ’s. Then there is me. I’m sitting in a chapel in a skirt and cold and secretly eating chocolate… shhh that’s a secret.
This is going to be an adventure!
T- one year to go!
