Sister Palmer is getting transferred. We have been together for 4 transfers, or about 5 1/2 months. It's been a while. It hasn't been completely perfect, but I would be lying if I didn't say we were a powerhouse companionship. We have seen so many miracles together in Mt. Woodson. We had 4 people get baptized while we were companions and all of them have been to the temple to do baptisms for the dead, they all have callings, 3 of them have patriarchal blessing recommends, Ashley got her patriarchal blessing, and Boone has the Aaronic priesthood. Our ward is AWESOME!
The last MTE was this week, and picture 4 is of me with the sisters I went with. I have been so tired this transfer. I went on 12 exchanges. Count them. one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve. TWELVE. So I'm excited to go back to normal exchanges this transfer. Exchanges are fun, but they get really tiring.
Friday was Valentine's Day. We had district meeting that day. So that's what pictures 1 and 2 are on. It was a fun day. I love our district, so it was really fun to have it on Valentine's day. It was also the last one of the transfer, so we knew something was going to change. And Sister Palmer is leaving. Elder Casey and Elder Bittner are staying, and I don't know about Elder Arntsen and Elder Hill. They won't tell us.....
we had another Bring Your Friend To Church day. Guess how many non-members were there this time?! 9!!!! We had 9 non-members there! Patrick didn't come to church again, and Carlos DID come again! And he brought 2 of the non-members. We're meeting with one of them on Friday. Her name is Miriam. And we met with a girl that is a member of the RLDS church last night over dinner at our Relief Society's presidents house. (Nicole, is the RS pres) Sarah, the girl, is nice. She's not quite sure if she wants to meet yet, but we think she will. And props to Nicole for having a non-member in her home with us over!!! MT. WOODSON ROCKS!!!!! We also have an appointment this week with a guy named Ben, who was brought by his member friend, Paul. Miracles are in abundance in Poway, everyone.
This morning Dave walked by as we were talking to the Elders that would teach him, and they asked if they could come by and read the Book of Mormon with him, and he said yes! Also, Dave's daughter, Emma, is setting up an email account for Brooke so that we can email the mormon dog when we get transferred. hahaha. They're awesome.
Umm....family, I think that's about it. It's been a good week! Transfer number 9, here I come!
Love, -Sister Audrey Michelle Bishop
