I am doing so good!! It was been a tough week but somehow I feel good. I got transfer calls about an hour ago and it turns out that I am being transferred. I actually won't know until tomorrow because transfers are on Wednesdays. We just get the calls the night before so we can pack and what not. I just know that I need to be at transfer meeting where they will tell everyone where they are going.
I am sad to leave Poway but I know that I going where the Lord needs me now. I can honestly say that I put everything I had into Poway and that brings peace to my heart as I deal with leaving behind friends and all that. But at the same time, I excited to see where I will be next and the many good times that lie ahead. But it will be nice to start something new. I have already said goodbye's to a lot of people because I have felt pretty strongly that I was going to be transferred. I have been really stressed because I don't want to leave these people but I know that it is of God and it will be for his will. At the same time, I am excited to see what happens tomorrow.
You all are so great! It also makes me happy that Dad enjoys his new position so much because we all know how much he hated work before! Glad to hear that Jonah is being so protective as well. Protect "The Momma always!!!"
It makes me glad that you all enjoyed the package that I sent home. I tried to make it enjoyable for everyone. It was fun to do that.
As to your question about my pants.... I am just wearing shorts and t-shirts like I always did. :) The pants don't fit me anymore because my body is becoming more developed. I have not gained a single pound or grown a single inch since I left but I have grown somehow. Everything else still fits alright though. :) My slacks are a tiny bit snug but that's okay because they have the expandable waste. I can't think of anything else that I NEED. I am doing just fine. :)
SCARY story in the Chapel!!! But I am very relieved to hear that you are okay and that it was a mint and not something that wouldn't dissolve. Happy to hear that everything is okay and that people knew what to do. :) You really scared me there for a second! I sure love you Momma!
This week has been really rough to say the least. We barely got to teach anyone and none of those people were J****, I*****, the less active or his friend. I know that I and my companion did EVERYTHING that we could. That being said, it was still good because we always see the hand of the Lord in our work. I am grateful to have served in Poway for so long and I am going to miss it like crazy but I know wherever I go is where I need to be. I am surprisingly okay with leaving my area because I know that I held nothing back and gave it my all. Yeah I was out of commission with my back for some time but even then I know that I did everything that I could.
I did enjoy my valentines day. I will have to send pictures of our dinner. It was pretty fun and I am glad that you had so much fun as well. Thank you for your example and all you do for me each day.
I am glad that you enjoyed all the pictures and everything I hope you have a great week... :)
