The sister i went on exchanges with is Hermana Carroll. She's from Downtown SLC (she lives in the avenues!) She has an uncle who's a scarf designer in SF. cool...
Well i'm quite jealous to hear about your wonderful weather. It's started to snow...nothing too serious but the ground has been white for the last couple of days...and it's been pretty chilly!
This week we went on exchanges with the spanish sisters in our area. So guess what I got to do? Speak spanish! haha it was classic. We wrote "hermana" on a piece of paper and taped it on my nametag over "sister". it was the true sign of really becoming a spanish sister. I hope you can see it from the picture i attached! haha Besides the fact that I really stood there or sat there and was really confused the entire time, it was a really cool experience. My desire to be a language missionary came true for a short 24 hours. The spanish people are sooooo kind and loving! I secretly hope I get switched languages the last 6 months of my mission :) that would be holla worthy, and i'd probably cry a lot too. But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, eh?
Our American Thanksgiving was lame. We did our weekly planning and car fasted so we walked everywhere that day. We had 2 good appts that night though. no turkey for us! haha but it's all good- Not many americans in our branch. Sounds like your Tgiving was great though! Maybe next year for me, eh?
Our investigators are doing pretty well. No one came to church yesterday but that's ok, we're still working with them and have been in contact with them daily.
About Cmas packages- YES, we do have the zone conferences in Dec and so to be 100% safe sending them to the mission office would guarantee that i get them before cmas...as long as our zone leaders make a trip down. I did get gma's pre-cmas package! Thanks gramma! We've been enjoying the goodies :) and Annie- we've been sooo impressed with our pickle elevator! No lies, we use it daily.
That's really awesome that Jenn Neil got her mission call! She'll love it. Does she leave soon?
Well, not much to tell around here! Transfers are yet again right around the corner! Things may get switched up around here...ya never know! Somos misionaras de la iglesia de Jesucristo..... ;) Have a great week!Love Sister Messer
