Week #15 Whiteeeey

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA! I hope the family floured you… Haha 🙂

This week was a crazy week! We had transfers on Wednesday. It was so good to see all the missionaries that I haven’t seen in a long while. It was hard to say goodbye to Sister Mouritsen because she has become one of my dearest friends, we were friends from the premortal! But I know that she is going to do amazing work in the Bahamas.

My new companion is Sister Thompson from Jamaica! She is always laughing and wanting to have a good time. She is a hard worker and I love that about her. She is from Mandaville, Jamaica (where the church first started) and has only 3 months left on her mission. I am excited to see where this adventure takes us.

There isn’t much to report on this week. It has been a hard week because I have officially taken the lead in this area. Now, when people fall through and cancel on us I have to firgure out what to do next and that is really hard. But, I am trying the best that I can. Sister Thompson is always encouraging whenever things go wrong. We have had a lot of cancellations this week so I have really had to lean on the Lord and his timing as of late.

Funny moment of the week: So Brother Wayne was washing our car (He doesn’t like to see us drive a dirty can so he washes it for us, thank goodness cause I don’t like doing it) when a taxi drives past full of elementary aged children and they yell “HEY WHITE PEOPLE WELCOME TO JAMAICA!!!” Then a little ways off they say it again to us. It was funny. Gotta love Jamaicans.

Good news of the week: I GOT INTO BYU-PROVO!!!!! It’s good to know my life has some direction haha! I can’t wait to go there because a lot of my mission family will be going to school there 🙂

I have decided that getting hand written letters is probably my favorite thing! Thanks Aunt Cheryl for my package 🙂 The letters and the candy made my day!

Hope all is well. Don’t forget to pray and read your scriptures today.

Love,
Sister Garrett
