(90) hasta ver


okay, crazy week.
 
entonces. long story short, me and hna Santidrian are staying in Los Alamitos A and hna Nielsen and her new companion hna Hyatt are working to open the new Saratoga Stake San Tomas branch that is opening next transfer. which we of course found out in the middle of transfer meeting, but I guess that's normal around here. so there will be five sisters and two elders in one ward for this transfer. so we spent all of tuesday figuring things out between the hnas, but for now they are just going to visit a few of our families so they still have some work here. our companionship got moved to another district, which is really fun. we are with cherry glen and dry creek wards, and the samoan sisters! sadly, sister williams got moved out to santa cruz, but now we can all go visit her on weekends. we have a new elder, elder lopez in our ward and a couple new sisters in our zone, but most other things are staying the same.
 
but thursday we got to pick up our new companion, sister anderson from orem utah! she is AMAZING. her spanish is already incredible and she was totally ready to go straight to work. so far the biggest problem we have is that we're all too accomodating and it takes five minutes for us to decide who wants to take a shower first, it's like a stoplight in eugene. "no you go" "no you" "go ahead". haha. but we had awesome lessons, really quality contacts, and we've had the spirit with us all week.
 
my favorite experience this week was last wednesday with hna santidrian, it was our first day and we went to go visit some referrals, and one of their sons answered the door. as soon as he opened the door I just knew he was prepared and was ready to hear our message, we got to teach him a little about the book of mormon and share a prayer with him and left him with a copy, it was so awesome. unfortunately it was in english so we might have to hand him over to the english elders, and he is hard to track down, but if his mom wants to listen and come to our ward in spanish with him, maybe we can still teach him!
 
so a lot is going on and we have SO much work to do but I've never been more confident in our companionship and I know we can do it. so i'm really excited for this transfer! Plus we got a brand new car (her name is Nala, since Hna Nielsen took Simba) and aside from a few REALLY FRUSTRATING encounters with the new gps (zazu), we are doing well!
 
AND NATALIE CHERIE HARMAN I BELIEVE SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK AHEM I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT IT THAT IS ALL PAIGE LAUREN WHITNEY YOU TOO PICTURES PLEASE KTHX
 
thank you all so much for your prayers, I will be praying for all of you, especially grandpa, I love you! I hope everything gets figured out soon but please let me know how it all goes.
