No Group Email Today

If you didn't get an email from Sister Galli today, you're not the only one. I was able to email back and forth with her during the day, but I'm guessing 6:00pm must have come too quickly and surprised her so she didn't get a group email sent out. So, I am going to summarize a few of the things she and I talked about today.
First of all, she was shocked to find out at transfers last week that she would be in a new trio (because of an odd number of sister missionaries) for the next 6 weeks, and she would be heading back to Kentlands, her first area. She is serving with Sister Yancey who is from Firth, ID and has been out for 10 months, and with Sister Sheffer who is from Phoenix, AZ and has only been out for two transfers (12 weeks). She said they are "greenie-breaking" her, which means she has been trained and is on her first transfer not being a trainee.
She said out of the five areas she has served in, she will end up serving in Kentlands the most. She served there for her first 4 transfers, and might possibly serve there for her last two. That would end up being half of her mission in the same area. She said it is strange to be back where she started, but she had a warm welcome back to the ward on Sunday. She was happy that most of the people remembered her, but the best part of coming back to the ward (and probably the reason she was welcomed back so kindly) was because of Mireille (the lady from Cameroon who they taught and was baptized). She said she is still very active in the church and her two kids who are in high school have gotten baptized. She also said her 20-year-old son came back from college for the summer and he got baptized, and her husband is back from Cameroon and they are teaching him. How cool for her to see the fruits of her labors - many missionaries are not given that opportunity after they leave an area.
She is optimistic about her new companions and is looking forward to being back in the Kentlands area!

The Trio Terminates

This Wednesday is Transfers again. They roll by so fast nowadays. Oh well, two more to go!
Sadly, we know that the trio will come to a sad end this week.  It has been some of the best days of my mission to be in a trio--who would have guessed? Though sidewalks definitely promote third-wheeling, the rest is great!


We've had the opportunity to teach a lot this week even though we were in the VC 4/6 days since the last p-day. We taught a young man from Cameroon this week who just lapped up the Restoration, agreeing with almost every point, and even accepting to be baptized if the Holy Spirit told him to. We also had many doorstep lessons that could certainly turn into future lessons soon. 

Carrollton is where my heart will always be and it was good to come to labor here for a few extra days.

Temple Day!

Today is Temple day! You all know what that means---! Limited time to email.
But to put his week simply, Thursday night, we got a call from President telling Sister Yang and I to pack our bags because the next day, Friday, she'll be in Kent Island and I'll be back in Carrollton until the end of the transfer.
So since Friday, I've had a blast being in a trio with two wonderful sisters in debatably my favorite area :)

Here's some trio Temple pictures.

Peace out
