It weird I'm kind of sad and kind of happy I haven't been able to get my head on straight yet but it stinks i'm really sad to leave sister Bly like REALLY sad! Im am gonna miss that girl like crazy! I am excited though sister Ritchel is my companion and we came out together and I know her pretty well so it will be fun! and Elder Howard my old district leader is there and our Zone Leader Elder Te'o will be there too so I know we will have tons of fun. I kind of had a feeling that this was going to happen but I know there are things that I need to do there. So sad to leave this ward though they are AMAZING!!! It weird we are coming up on a year crazy right cant believe this time last year we were getting ready to go to the MTC. Time fly's so fast! 

Well as for this week it wasn't anything super crazy... Wednesday we went to the YW in excellence here and it was so cute there theme was "your eternal best friend". We also have been helping sister Billings paint her sons room and sister Bly is doing a huge mural on it and it amazing! We got to finally have a lesson with Natasha and she is so sweet I am going to miss that girl like crazy! Also we did indexing with David. I seriously have never seen someone so excited for family history work! Other than that just the usual! I Love this ward so much and I am sad to leave but, they have helped me so much and So has sister Bly I am grateful for them!

No dayz like snow dayz

This week was a little crazy. Had an appointment in Idaho falls hence why this email is so late.
Really thins week was nothing too exciting we keep on working with the members and trying to get them all squared away... we don't know whats happening this next transfer ( which is next Wednesday) so we are just trying to make sure that the ward is ready for whatever happens. It was a pretty good week though. We got to go to the Family History center with David this week and let me just say that It was so neat to see him get excited about family history work. He went right home and told his non-member sister about ti and she spent that whole night finding family members. We are helping out this week and we plan on getting him addicted to indexing next Hehe! :) Lately we have been doing a lot of service for the members. It helps us a ton to get to know them and serve them. its a blast too..  on a mission service is seriously the best thing! 
Oh and other exciting news this week which Im sure everyone knows but it snowed here... and this San Diego sister drove in it and did NOT crash thank you very much! However my lovely Minnesotan companion might have been very worried that I was going to too. Haha Dang did it get cold quick here! it dropped pretty quick and snowed for about two days then we got an ice storm so it froze over YAY! but dont worry we broke out the hot chocolate and Christmas music! Another Highlight of this week and let be frank this year was the primary program . Its seriously like reality TV for missionaries. the sunbeams always shine and this year it might have been one in particular who started singing her part to a tune that sounded distinctively like frozen...hhhmmmm.. she got the favorite award! haha it was great thought and I love this ward so much. It sad I feel like we just survived transfers. We had interviews with president this week and he told us that Sister Bly and I will most likely not be together next transfer. WHICH IS NOT OK let me just say! I am going to be so sad! P.s. that means probably should send some letters to the mission office address just in case next week (421 Maurice street North) Anyways those are basically the hightlight pretty steady week we are just trying to find more people to teach which is a constant theme but we know its all in the Lords timing and He will lead us to the people who are ready if we are doing the best we can! I love you all and hope that you all have an amazing week!

Service in Sweaters 11/10

So this week was pretty normal i guess. Normal in a relative missionary sense. Sorry if this letter is shorter. 
The temperatures are dropping and winter is coming. Not sure if I am excited or not.. still deciding . Monday though we had dinner with the Orotns a new family in the ward. It was so cute they have 3 little girls and a little boy and all they wanted to do was perform for us. Totally reminded me of all those time I am sure Sarah and I put on shows haha. We then went over to the Carrs a less active family in the ward and we were able to talk to sister Carr for a while and we just are trying to help her with the move and making sure she is doing okay. Tuesday we had district meeting and then we went to lunch at Daisy's probably the cutest place in the world its a little candy shop run by this older couple and they have a little diner attached to it. with soups and milkshakes. After that we went over to the older Thompsons in our ward and helped her rake up some leaves. Ya I learned to rake leave like a ton this week! We had dinner with Joan smith and her friend she took us to chilis for dinner YUM!! Had a lesson with David our new recent convert! We talked a lot about Family history work and he is really excited to take names to the temple soon. Wednesday We kind of had to run around in the morning to take care of some insurance stuff for sister Bly. We went with sister Christensen about ward missionary things and then we went and did service for these non-members. Anne and Van Petersen. Sister Manning in the ward told them we could help with some yard work. Van just had back surgery so he wasn't able to help so we cleaned out their gardens and raked.. again! we went back twice that week! Had dinner with the Perrons in the ward who they have 2 sons on a missions right now and then we went to contract a referral we have been trying to get a hold of forever. So we stopped by her mom opened the door, then she let us in and told us Kayla (the girl we were trying to contact) was sleeping but she asked if we wanted to sit down. We ended up talking to her for an hour and a half! She has so many people who are members of the church and she knows so much, in that short time she opened up about so much and I can honestly that it wasn't anything i said or did it was all the spirit. she invited us back and we are also going to help her paint! woot woot service! Thursday we had to run more errands.. :/ I had to pick up somethings from the hosptial and what not. We went over and helped sister manning finish painting her fence. had dinner at the Robinsons who we LOVE!! and weekly planned.. not so fun haha ;). Friday sister Bly had Physical therapy and then after we went and did more service!! helped sister Pertersen (different one than ann) who is a single sister in the ward we raked her leaves and then we mowed her lawn for her. Afterwards we sat and talked to her for a while. It amazes me how the members here are doing so much missionary work! She told us how she invited some people to do family history work so she was going to help them out! We had dinner that night at the Soloagas who is the less active family we have been helping. Oh My goodness I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!! We had a blast over there and they are changing so much! since the first time we met them a month ago there has been such a change in there lives and there family. And they are ALL coming to church now! #BESTPARTOFMISSIONARYWORK! Saturday we Helped out Anne again and Mary Toft form another ward (she like JUST got home from her mission) Came and helped us, she was so much fun! We went over and helped out sister Adams, the primary president, get ready for the primary program. had Chinese dinner dropped off to us! GREAT!! and then we went to the elders baptism. After that we sat in the car for a while and sister Bly was struggling and so we talked and then we went and walked around the temple. It seriously is such a blessing to live so close to it! WOW! even though we cant go every week its still just a blessing being able to walk on the grounds it brought me so much peace and comfort that I cant even describe! Sunday we had church, we got to help sister Grimshaw in her lesson, had missionary meeting. Came home, lunch, weekly planned more since we didn't get to finish. Had dinner with the Spauldings who just moved in. He is our Gospel Essentials teacher and they are hilarious he reminds us so much of Caesar Flikerman from the hunger games!! Haha its there are seriously the sweetest people and we had such a good time with them! 
Well that's about all this week 2 new investigators and lots of service really cant complain Its great. Definitely bundling up here for winter its getting COLD! haha Love you all and hope the week is Warm :)

We had dinner with the Allens that night and they took us to Johnny Carinos for dinner and they are hilarious brother Allen totally reminds me of dad and it was so much fun to have FHE with them. Later than night we got home and finally looked at our phone right before i got into bed... and we had like 20 messages from the zone leaders.. we forgot to turn in some of our numbers opps ;) haha so right as i am about to start listening to then 20 voice-mails they left we hear the door bell ring and so i of course pushed sister Bly in front and made her open the door.. and the zone leaders were standing there with very serious faces on and we just started laughing and. and they told us to come stand in front of them and they totally silly stringed us! haha we were all laughing so hard! haha so funny.. (elders are so weird!)
> Tuesday: We didn't have district meeting this week because of zone meeting. so we got some stuff done in the morning for our baptism that weekend. Then we went out and sister Mclaws took us to lunch and it was so much fun. After we went and helped her with some socks (ya they are cool and own a sock business!)  We then went over and helped the billings with there party and finishing some stuff up. We had dinner at the Lynches and we had a lesson with David that night to go over somethings for his baptism. He is seriously amazing we just loved teaching him so much!
> Wednesday: Sister Bly had physical therapy that morning then we had lunch and we met with one of our ward missionaries to go over plans for the baptism on Saturday. Helped the billings again! haha Had our last lesson with the Kamryn before her baptism this weekend. Had dinner with Judy Taylor it was really cool though we have been helping her put in her mission papers and we had a really good conversation with her about everything missions and all!
> Thursday: We went over early since it was the day of the party and helped them. We had to leave though and go and help sister carr and new family that moved in about 2 months ago. She has been really stressed and so we went over and helped her clean and empty a lot of boxes. I love this ward though because we called up the relief society and sister Quast came as well as sister Mclaws just came and helped us. We went over to the billings and I did her makeup for the party. Had dinner with the Thompson's and we had thai food (common theme much?)Then we had the party that night! So much fun!
> Friday: HALLOWEEN! We had Zone meeting in the morning then we had Davids interview. It was amazing and he was so excited and ready! We had dinner with the Days later that night. and then we had to be in by 6 so we got to have a district party. We watched the RM and played apples to apples and it was great! so much candy and it was so much fun!
> Saturday: We got to go over to Kamryns and do her hair for the baptism. the we went to her baptism and it was so cool and we love her so much! We ran around all crazy and trying to get ready for the baptism. But Davids baptism was later that night and it was so amazing! He was so excited and I really couldn't complain it was the first baptism where nothing went wrong! AHHH! but we had dinner after with the Albrechts and we were able to help Sister Albrecht with some things she was struggling with. She is amazing and does so much good even just for the missionaries so I was glad we got to sit and talk to her.
> Sunday: David was confirmed in church and President and sister Curits came to our sacrament meeting . He was just beaming and I was so happy for him! All the lessons were just really inspired and exactly what I needed to hear. We had dinner with the Ames and we were able to go and watch part of the CES Devotional.
