Good grief! What a week it has been!
So I played a big trick on everyone and told them I'd be part of the Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I'm still a missionary in the North Carolina Charlotte Mission and I'm happy to be here. I don't even know where to begin with this week. This will be all over the place but I just have to get all the information out. So hang in there:)
I'm serving in the heart of Charlotte. We're in the Pineville 1st ward in the Charlotte South Stake. We're serving in President and Sister Craven's ward along with a tri-panionship of Elders/our Zone Leaders. My companion is from Millcreek. Her name is Sister Jameson. She's 21, she was studying studio art at BYU before she came on her mission. She's been out 8 months and she is the best. We get along just great and she reminds me so much of Kacee Hildebrandt.
The official title of what Sister Jameson and I will be doing for the next little while is "Sister Training Leaders" I didn't get that name down until yesterday, I think. We are going to a training this week to inform us more of all the things we'll do; but last week President Craven said we'll be going on exchanges with other Sister companionships twice a week to train them and teach them! It's going to be a great experience. I'm looking forward to working so closely with President and Sister Craven. They are so wonderful. We get to go to Mission Leadership Council (used to be Zone Leader Council) this week so I'll get to see my Zone Leaders and District Leader from Asheville one more time before they all go over to the other mission. I'm excited about that.
Life in Charlotte is busy. I'm definitely not in Cherokee nation anymore but I know I'm where the Lord wants me right now and I'm looking forward to the great experiences ahead!
God lives. He loves each one of us. I know He is so aware of our needs and is willing to help us every step of the way.
I love y'all. I hope you have a good week:)
Right before we left to come to the library I was walking to the garbage can in our kitchen and this nasty huge cockroach was hurrying it's way to go behind the fridge and I looked at my companion and frantically said, What is that!? and without even thinking I just turned around and kicked the wall to kill it and it made theeee nastiest crunching sound and then it just juiced down the wall. Welcome to summer time in the south. I'll die here. hahahaa
My new address is posted to the right.....don't be shy I love letters!!
