Dear FamilyTransfers were today! Sister Welch is now in Richland, MS and my new companion is Sister Creager. Sister Creager is from a town called Weston which is in Southeastern Idaho, she is second of five children, all of which are girls. She's been out as long as Sister Welch (10 months), and has served in El Dorado, AK and just came from Florence, MS. She's an art major at Utah State. That is all I know, so hopefully you find it sufficient :) I just hope that after that two and a half hour drive with a semi-sleep deprived, very rambly me, she hasn't decided I'm a complete nutter yet. It would spoil the surprise, and that's just no fun ;)
L was only able to stay for sacrament meeting (her husband didn't want to come, and since he has Alzheimer's she doesn't like leaving him alone too long), but she really enjoyed it and says she will definitely come again :) She even paid a fast offering. Such an elect lady. Of course all the testimonies were about temple work, endowments for the dead, genealogy, etc. which we've never gotten into with her, but even though she was a little confused at times, she still felt the Spirit, and enjoyed church. I was inwardly laughing the whole time, because I was imagining how I would've been feeling if just anyone was there with us, but luckily L is awesome. C+C also came, and loved church again; they're really just becoming a part of the ward. We finally taught them the whole Restoration lesson this week, and we did it in Mike and Amy Turley's home (Mike and Amy got married a couple weeks ago! :) and it was awe-some. C even shared about how from reading the bible, she's always questioned why she would have to pray to Saints when she can just pray directly to God. Basically she told us she's not really Catholic, when all along we've been thinking she's really devout. She just has a lot of faith instead, which is good news for us :) Hallelujah round two!
It was sad to say goodbye to Sister Welch, but Sister Creager is super nice, and I'm excited for this next transfer. Many more miracles are on their way, I can just feel it :) God is good!
