Good day wonderful friends!
I've made it to Prairie Grove, mainly unscathed. It's so crazy to be back down here at the bottom of the mission. I feel like I don't know anyone again! I was sad to say goodbye to Orchard Hills and some of its wonderful people there, but I am so happy and excited for the new adventure of Arkansas again! I love my companion, Sister Jack, as she is so fun and cute and I know we are going to have a blast together! This is here last transfer, so we gotta make sure each moment and miracle counts!
I was given the lovely surprise of having little to no one to teach, so Sister Jack and I got some work ahead of us. We spent a good amount of time knocking on some doors.
We even accidentally crashed a party! Whoops! We were trying to contact this family and we walked up their driveway. We noticed that there were a lot of cars, so that was our first warning. So, we knocked on the door and it was dark and everyone had party blowers! Surprise! We weren't the sisters they were looking for.
On Sunday, a sister who had returned home was visiting. I hadn't known her before, but I had heard of her. She served in Greenwood awhile before me. She brought her family and we got to be good friends with them. We had a friend with her sister about curly hair, as Sister Jack was asking for advice. I learned some fun new terms, such as "squish to condish", "t-shirt plop", "prayer hands", and "the pineapple style". Clearly, I need to update my vocabulary.
I'm so happy to be here and I am thankful for the blessings in my life. I know I will figure things out and that things will come in time. I'm grateful for my Heavenly Father, my Savior, Jesus Christ, my friend, the Holy Ghost, and for the restored gospel with a modern day prophet. I know this church is true and that God is aware of us and He knows what we are going through.
I'm so grateful for all of you and I love you all!
