WEEK 20- Transfers.......

Sorry, so things are SO insane I'm not sure if I'm going to get a weekly email out.  Struggle of sharing a car...we have to drive around saying bye to people.  But I'll email later if  I can and try to answer questions.

So yes, the big news....TRANSFERS.....I don't actually get to stay for the wedding and baptisms.  I'm getting transferred to Helena.  I have totally mixed feelings about it! Haha  I'm excited for something new but I'm also SO sad to leave Great Falls.  2 more weeks and it would have been 5 months here. The ward is incredible and I LOVE the people were working with.  I'm going to miss everyone so much!  I think it's turning out to be harder than I thought to say bye to people. And I'm also going to miss everyone's baptisms... Beth, Dion, Rhonda, Leanna, and Trevor.  But I'm super excited for sister Crosland and her new companion (she is getting a greenie) to get to carry the work on!
So another terrifying thought.  As well as getting transferred to Helena, I was also asked to be a Sister Training Leader. Eek.  The other 5 Sister Training Leaders are amazing and have been out in the mission for over a year.  So I'm a little-actually a lot-intimidated.  When president called I said “are you sure"?

What would you say is one of the hardest parts of the mission?
I think the hardest time is the love.  Honestly, we just love people so dang much!! And when they're hurting its hard to watch.
And saying good bye ….its been really hard.

This was our cheap missionary meal ....$4 pancake and we could not finish it.  GREAT restaurant run by a mom and daughter. Sweetest people EVER!!

This is the Bailey family.  They have taken such good care of all the missionaries in Great falls.  They are truly angels.

 Saying good bye is hard...........

I love you and think of you soooo much!!! Thank you for your
support and everything. Love you love you.
