This week!

Well, I've officially decided that a desk job later in life wouldn't be completely horrible. I'm surviving the Office. Granted, I'm missing proselyting as much as I used to...But that's alright. We're changing things. Honestly, I don't think we need as many office hours as we're putting into it...Things will be changing.

This week we helped keep Sister Kahles with Keira's Baptism. We've been working a lot with them and it was SO much fun playing little helper to make sure everything ran smoothly. And we had lots of fun!

Hope you all had a great week!

All the Pictures I Promised are here! I finally remembered my Camera! Don't worry... captions are included.

Sister Rose and I found tractor tires and I lifted them up and rolled them across the field. SUPER HUMAN STRENGTH! (Sister Rose couldn't do it) 

My temporary trio for a day. Me, Sister Cleveland, Sister Neilson

So we tried to use the cart from the kitchen to take package into the church. We broke the cart. 

I found my Prince!

He's just a little Guy... 

My hair and Sister Low's Cucumber...

YUP that's what we've been up to...The Crazy American and the Silent Scott...We make it work. 

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures! Hopefully I'll have more to say next week.

The Transfer... and the Emergency Transfer

So transfers, I was told I was going to Cincinnati with Sister Neilson and Sister Cleveland. TRIO! EXCITING! YAY! I was happy to get to work. And I survived my first trio I could handle another! We got to Cincinnati, I unpacked my clothes and my desk, and went to work and I was super excited to help motivate the ward to be better missionaries. I've done that  before too, I could totally do it again! But then, 24 hours after transfers President Porter called and said he made a mistake, I was needed elsewhere. So I packed in 45 minutes, Sister Cleveland made some lunch, we ate, and we lft. An hour later I was loading my things into a different car said goodbye to my previously assigned companions and said hello to Sister Lagitao and Sister Low in the Office.

That's right everyone! I'm in office sister! So my new address is the mission office address.
PO Box 11971
Cincinnati, OH 45211
I'm excited to be here. Sister Low says that this ward is my kind of people and I would agree. EVERYONE is into Renaissance/Doctor Who/Sewing/Essential Oils (or some combination of those things). Seriously...I haven't left a home yet where I don't feel adopted. It's great. I love it here. and I'm praying it is not just a one transfer thing. Granted, office sisters tend to stick around a while. So I shouldn't be worried....Right?

There are also a lot of stone churches EVERYWHERE. It makes me really happy. I TOTALLY plan on coming back here with a tripod, my dresses, and just spending a day taking EPIC pictures. All SCAdians back home will be jealous.

I did forget my camera again today. But I'll email pictures I promise!

Well, three months in Springboro and I'm getting transferred. I don't want to leave! But you know what? You go where the Lord sends you. And that's a fact. There's so much good going on here and I'm excited for my new adventure.

Sorry this isn't a long email and about it's lack of pictures. I packed my Camera and study materials this morning when we got the transfer call. :( I promise lots of pictures next week!

I'm excite to let you all know about my new grand adventure!
