NEWS (INVESTIGATOR'S NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO MAINTAIN ANONYMITY)
SEPTEMBER 16, 2013 - Transferred to Martigny!
HEY!!!! as you all so cleverly figured out.. Yes.. I got transferred I just arrived in what might just be the most beautiful place I've ever been. Holy moly. (i don't have a TON of time again, so this will be short.) I won't describe Martigny for you because you all have google, but let me describe the situation. First off, we have a car. Second off our apartment is huge and gorgeous. My companion is amazing. I can tell already. There's just a little branch here, but I'm so stoked to get to work. This is PARADISE!!!!!!!! my goodness. I want to stay here forever. ha. (although, I guess I don't REALLY know because I JUST got here. But it's looking good so far).. ha . I just wanted to make a list of the most amazing things I'm going to miss from Salève. (and since I didn't get to write last week, I don't know if this will all make sense, but just put this email up on the website, and one day I'll have to just tell you the stories in person..)
- GUSTAVO.... my word. He's my Hero. - Evaline and Baby Arthur - Anselme and his first Prayer - Soeur Morabito coming to church. - Blessing Frere Lau - Blessing the little kids going to stay with their dad for a couple weeks (who has a history of being abusive.) ... I'm sending you a picture of them, but don't put it online... - Just the ward in General.
Just so you know.. right now. the Saleve ward has 7 amis. 2 people that are officially reactivated. and 4 less actives that came to church the last week. Miracles came. I love it. :)
Update about Elder Leau. Nothing changed. ha.
But now I'm with Elder Leit (from Denmark) and we share the awesome apartment with two tahitians (Elder Smith, and Elder Kaiha). They're awesome!
Enjoy looking up my sector. It's beautiful. We have the great city of Sion (translated- ZION) in our sector. This is going to be great! Castles, underground lakes, beautiful mountains. Bring it on Martigny.
I Love you so much. Thanks for the prayers! ... and the 28 emails I didn't get time to read... but here things will be different, and I can print off some emails.. Sorry transfer days are always nuts, and I don't have much time. But.. That's all for now folks. I Love you! Bring it On! :)
Ps.. today. There's a charge on my debit card from home for 75 francs. Don't freak out. I'll be reimbursed for that.. I got the wonderful privilege of being the victim of an office mistake and me and another sister got a fee of 75 francs, but she didn't have any money, so I paid 150. phew... Mistakes are expensive. Oh well. Thanks for your generous donations to the missionary fund. Now you know where your money is going. ... :/
