The Best Weeks are the Busiest! -November 9th, 2015

Hey everyone! Like the subject of this email says, this week was super busy and it was great! Covering two areas and having two companions has been so much fun! We've been working super hard and been having tons of fun at the same time. The only downside is that we're all just exhausted! But we'll be returning back to normal Wednesday after transfers. 

As far as transfers go, we received our call from the ap's on Saturday night! The news is that Elder Anderson will be leaving, Elder Fulton will be going back to his area and will be training a new missionary, and I will be staying in Monte Sano for at least one more transfer and will receive a new companion! So this Wednesday we'll be driving down to Birmingham for transfer meeting.! I'm really excited to take over and lead the missionary work in this area and learn and grow with a new companion. 

Since we're been covering both areas, this week we've had the opportunity to teach a lot of people and do a lot of amazing things together. The lord definitely acknowledges our hard work and sacrifices and blesses us accordingly. We've been so busy and exhausted all week but we've all just been so happy. Its been a true testimony builder to me that truly when you forget yourself and dedicate your life to Him, you find the most happiness. 

Saturday was especially a great day. It feels weird that i'm nineteen and I guess this is the point where you stop wanting to grow up! haha but on a more serious note, I'd just like to thank everyone for all the birthday present and cards that were sent. It meant the world to me and made my day so great! All the love and support that I was shown made my day a very special one. 

We spent the day in scottsboro, Alabama because i was on the tail end of an exchange. So that morning we had the cupcakes with all the missionaries i'm closest to (picture below) then went out to eat at Paynes, and then went to Unclaimed baggage. Holy cow, unclaimed baggage was having a ski sale so it was packed like no other. It felt like black friday! And you know what it means when there are lots of people? Lots of people to talk to about the gospel! haha so we talked to a lot of people and I even talked to a guy that was a Manchester United fan and was wearing a team sweatshirt! It was awesome. After that we had a dinner appointment with a family that i've been pretty close to since i got here and they made us this awesome meal and got this awesome cake for me with my name on it (picture below). All in all it was a fantastic day and my first birthday in the mission was one to remember. 

On Sunday we were also able to teach Sam and her boyfriend again. They just got this new sounds system and projector for movies and football games so they wanted to show us that. Instead of watching football and other things we sprung on the opportunity to use this new setup they have to our advantage and do something spiritual with it. So we watched some of our favorite bible videos and it was really awesome, the spirit was super strong and Sam loved the videos. So we'll see where this goes:) 

Anyways, sorry this email was kind of all over the place today, i'm just a bit rushed... But i hope you guys enjoyed it!
I look forward to this week and all it has to bring. I also look forward to next Monday and introducing you to my new companion! Until then, I hope you all have a great week!
