It feels like it’s been forever since I wrote because so much has happened since then. So to start off Cody did get baptized and married this past Saturday and I didn’t go unfortunately but I heard that it went really well.
So this past week we picked up the new missionaries and they were so cute and excited to be out in the mission field. My new companion is Sister Kendra Morris! She is from Washington State and she is so cute, fun and energetic, and she is really hard worker.
So we drove to our new area and we pull up to our apartment we go in and its super nice but smells like a campfire and boy so that was weird then we look around and for some reason the elders living there before us thought it was a good idea to put their beds in the kitchen.. Yup they out them in the kitchen.. I don’t know why and then there was a mouse trap on the kitchen counter, we haven’t figured out if it was a joke yet or if it was for real. So we spent the next day cleaning and reorganizing the furniture. But we have a washer and dryer in our apartment and that makes up for literally everything including all the expired food they left us!
the ward is so awesome! They haven’t had sisters in like 8 years so they are so excited that we are here!
We don’t have too many investigators so we went tracting a lot and went through the area book, which was a mess, but its okay we are just working on picking things up here and sisterafying things
also we found out that if we stay in this area we will be working at the temple open house it starts next transfer I’m so excited!
"What you are is God's gift to you, what you become is your gift to God"
Saw that quote tattooed on a guys arm in down town Hartford this week :)
Have a great week love you all!
