HAPPY NEW YEARS!
First things first, we got our transfer calls and... We're becoming a trio! I was not expecting that at all. President Beesley told us we're staying with a twist, and that was the twist! So Sister Morrison who just finished being trained by Sister Hewitt will be coming down from North Pole and we'll be continuing the work with the three of us! With the weather we've been having in Anchorage, Sister Morrison should only need a light sweater. Elder Stevenson (one of the elders we share the ward with) will also be transfered to Eagle River, he's been here for three transfers and the rest of us have only been here one! He will be missed and it will be interesting to see how these new changes effect the work in Inlet View.
Speaking of the work, it's been good! The holidays have added a difficult spin on things with people being out of town, or having to cancel, etc. but we've got a great week lined up with people we'll be seeing!
I don't know if I mentioned the "B"-member family we've been struggling to meet with because of scheduling but they came and we were so excited! Their little girl, A, sat by me and it was cute to see how even though she's small she wanted to be reverant. At first she was climbing all over, but by the end she was sitting with her arms folded and everything! The Hello Kitty stickers might have been a bribe.. but I guess it worked so it's all good. :) haha
For New Years Eve we had a "radio show" with all the missionaries over polycom! The sisters in Anchorage stayed at the mission home and we all had to be in by 7:00 to avoid any drunk driving. I was asked to host the radio show and that was a lot of fun! President Beelsey made pancakes in the morning which was certainly a highlight of the week-they were delicious!
I must admit I feel a little out of wind this week. Things are going well and I'm grateful to be here!
Love you all! Don't forget to pray and read your scriptures! Christ's light is the key to the winter darkness!
