This has been a great week. A super, super fast one. I don't know where the time went, it's all been a blur!
The first thing that I want to mention is some changes that are happening: Hermana Cardon is getting transferred. We will no longer be a trio :-( She'll be doing the last six weeks of training for an English speaking sister. It's sad but she's going where she's supposed to be and she'll do great things. Hermana Gifford and I will be staying here and I'll be finishing up her training. There will be a new Spanish STL (Sister Training Leader) called but we won't be companions, at least not for a while. It's definitely a lot of changes, way more than I was expecting. But it'll be good; it'll all work out for the best :-)
We had a lot of great lessons this week. One was with our investigators Adriana, Javier, and Augustine. I think I might have explained to you before but Augustine and Adriana are brother and sisters, and they all live together. The cool thing about teaching them is that they ask a TON of questions. Seriously, they have great, GREAT questions. The cool thing, too, is that after we explain the answers, as soon as one of them gets it they start explaining it to each other and answering each other's questions. It's awesome to be able to teach people that really have such strong desires to learn and understand.
We went on exchanges this past week. Hermana Cardon went to Woodburn with another sister and Hermana Garner, a sister that arrived in the mission the same time as Hermana Gifford, came to be with us. It was fun to be with TWO brand new sisters. It definitely brought me back to the beginning of my mission, all of the nervousness and worry but, most of all, all of the desire. It was really cool to see how strongly they wanted to be doing the Lord's work.
We don't have too much time today because of all of the things Hermana Cardon needs to do to get ready to leave but I love you all! Have a great week!
