Hey-oh, team! This week has been a crazy one...like, way crazier than I ever anticipated. Way crazier than my last week email let on...
Because I'm currently hanging ten in Bismarck. In a trio. Training a little bambino. Life is bonkers!
It's actually not too crazy of a story, just that President called early Tuesday morn and sassed me a bit and then we hightailed it to Bismarck on Wednesday. And now, I'm attempting to raise up a wee Robinson seed right before I peace out and it's just the best. The craziest thing, for sure, but totally the best. I'm with Sis. Andrus (who dies/heads home in a mere four weeks) and Sis. Larson (the cutest greenie you've ever seen ) and we're "slaying"...Sister Larson word, not mine. Haha. She's seriously the cutest. Just wait 'til you see the pictures! It's funny, because this whole situation is the last thing I ever expected or wanted- but Heavenly Father totally knows what I needed. Ahhh, life remains beautiful! God is still good, even in Bismarck!
But anyway, let me tell you about the week. It's been a crazy one, man oh man! We started it off with normal pday shenanigans, full of Audrey movie watching and finding in the night and trying the masses...and freaking out about transfers over dinner with the Orozcos. GAHH, I love them so much!! I think it was during the bleak pday night that transfers starting getting real- I just felt so uninspired and so out of place...but I was still pretty shocked when President called with the news. Man oh man. I wept for a minute, frantically wrote cute cards to all my favorite people, and packed like a crazy person...it was a rough Tuesday. We spent the day running around like hooligans and teaching the masses and saying goodbye- we had an early morn lesson with Rollie and it was pretty beautiful. That man is such a good one. We retaught the Restoration and he told us he knows it's all true...and that he wants to be baptized! AHHH!! Dang flab, I adore that Rollie. It was way hard to say goodbye- he'll definitely be on the wall in due time.
And Rollie! :)
We ate dinner on Tuesday with the beloved Orozcos- AHHH, best people I know!! AHHHHH!! They're totally family these days, and it felt like leaving home all over again...transfers are seriously the worst. Like, they're way bad. Leaving Grand Forks was one of the hardest things I've done in all my life...but then, I got to hightail it to Bismarck and start a new adventure. And, so far, it's been pretty beautiful. I'm loving the Bismarck life!
I adore Audrey! And the Orozcos!
On Thursday, we went to transfer times and I got to see all my faves- it was a lovely time. Sis. Luker is in Dickinson these days, which means she's my STL- yahooooooo!!!! I am so jazzed. And also, Sis. Boyack replaced me in Grand Forks! Goodness, such good stuff. She's the best.
I love Sister Luker!! :)
So...that's been my week. I still can't really believe that I'm here, so close again to my dear Beulah and hanging ten by President...but it's way good. Life is beautiful and God is good! Sis. Larson is just so green and so excited that everything is just exciting again, even planning and trying and tracting. It's the dream! I love being a missionary- and a trainer! Life is crazy but good...I think Bismarck is going to be a party. I'm jazzed! Tender but jazzed!
At an especially rough bit of our planning and trying, we got ourselves some Taco Bell...goodness, I love my companions. They get me.
Alright, I love you all a ton! My new address is 3103 E Calgary Ave #113, Bismarck, ND 58503...send mail my way, friends and fam!!
Welp, have the greatest week ever! Thank you for all you do!! I adore you!
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!!
