You will only understand if you are a Monty Python fan!
I can usually tell from the first few days what a companionship is going to be like. And I can already tell that it is going to be a fantastic transfer!
My new companion is Sister Gilbert. She is from Huntington, Utah and has been out for 7 months. She's a brand new STL, so we've got a new STL training a brand new STL. So this should be fun.
I am excited to work with Sister Gilbert. We've been sharing a lot of the goals that we have for this transfer and it's looking like we're on the same page--we want to be bold, fearless missionaries who are diligent workers. Ahhh I'm so excited, Sister Gilbert is great. I don't know if I mentioned this in my last email, but she served in McAmmon while I served in Inkom. The two towns are really close to each other, so us Inkom sisters would get rides form McAmmon sisters all the time, and vice versa. So we got pretty tight there.
All the ISU students are going home for Christmas break, which means, in terms of young single adults, Pocatello will be a ghost town for the next couple of weeks. Most of our investigators are going out of town to see their families for Christmas. One of our Investigators, Ali, is going back to his home country for the break. Please pray for him.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Yearrrrrr!! I can't wait to Skype y'all and see how you're doing. Although I will miss hanging with the cousins, eating cottage cheese pie, making a gingerbread house, and going to the theater to see a movie on Christmas Day, I love Christmas in the mission field because of how exciting it is to 'announce' to everyone about the birth of the Savior. It makes me feel like the angel announcing to the shepherds of the glorious news. Thing this year of what you can give Christ for His birthday. I love you all so much!
Merry Christmas and God Bless,
we tried making homemade queso. Didn't really turn out, but it still tasted good. haha
