It is very long!
This week has definitely been pretty WHOA! WOW! WHOA! REALLY? NO WAY! GET THIS! WHOA!
Thursday I got to go to Welfare Square again! Yeah! It was pretty slow. Sister Leavitt did her last exchange for the transfer , so I got to go to WFS again with Sisters Trevino and Calderon! Now since they speak Spanish, they were asked to join the Spanish VIP tour, they were giving but they were there... and so was I! I only knew what was happening because WFS tours don't really differ. I was just in the back quietly trying to see how much Spanish I knew.
was Gary's baptism. That was so neat, Sister Leavitt was just smiling the whole time! It was rather interesting to hear elders share The Restoration lesson (they did that while Gary and Bro. Porter were changing) because every meeting, every tour, every companionship study I pass by is always sisters. I don't know how I am going to survive teaching just The Restoration lesson . That is gonna be rough.
we went to a local ward to speak! We went with three other sisters who sang and gave three minutes little talks. Sister Leavitt and I were to share The Restoration lesson together (which what we are aces at). The chorister for the congregation was louder than everybody else. When he started we all almost had a laughing attack! Way to go him, get those people to sing!
... Let me set up everything for you. Typically, they will send out a text the second to last Thursday of the transfer for sisters going outbound. Weeeeell, the Risenmay's went somewhere and weren't going to get back until ... All of us anticipating outbound.
SOOOOO night, Sister Tuttle wanted to be with us until I got the text, and then Sister Smith S. from New Zealand and Mazza (when I was w/Sis. Tripptree (AKA Jess)) were locked out so they joined us. We had hot chocolate, then the text came! They left.
Sister Smith M. came home, super excited so we ran around telling everyone what was going on!

RENO NEVADA MISSION! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO
This is the link to where it is!
Now, a funny thought about outbounds, I always thought it would be funny if I got assigned to Peter's mission while he was still out. Now he is barely home, but they are sending three sisters there! Ha! Fun!
For out bound (three months), I can only bring one 50 lb suitcase, a carry on and a bag. Now, there are things I will need when I get back to TS, so I get to leave my other suitcase and a big box of stuff for when I get back! YAY!
we had a great flap pole tour. There were three older couples from, the USA, Australia, and NE England. Fun group.
Wednesday, today. A week ago I sent a lady from the UK to the locals. Called her today, she is on date for baptism for , . That is super amazing! Heavenly Father is just blessing us left and right these past few weeks! And I am leaving it all behind, but for something just as good, to be there in person to teach!
We actually have three investigators in Florida, so we hare praying super hard for them. As far as we know they're okay. Dan is one of them, and he is super cool. He is 62 and still working hard. I grabbed his chat from the que and he was asking about the Humanitarian Aid we as a church were providing for Huston. Which lead to me asking if he want to keep in touch so we could teach him the reason why we are so effective (The Restoration). When we finally called, this is how it ended.
Sis. Leavitt: Dan, when you find these things to be true, will you follow the example of Chirst, and be baptized by someone who holds the proper priesthood of God?
Dan: Yeah, I want to learn more though. Is there someone here I can talk to? Something I can read?
Me: YEAH! There are local missionaries and the Book of Mormon and......
So Dan is pretty golden.
That's the week!
Sister Glanzer from WA State!

PS. So as I have made cookies here I was having trouble getting them to be like the cookies I made at home. I had a hard time thinking that elevation was the effect. AND I WAS RIGHT TO JUDGE THAT AS WRONG! I have been using baking POWDER instead of baking SODA this whole time. Eleven months, it took me 11 months to figure that out. They were kind of bready.
PPS. Sis. Smith M. - Blond sister from Gilbert AZ and was in my MTC district, has been my roommate the last three months.
Sis. Smith A. - Brunette sister from Gilbert AZ, was in the MTC district next door, was in my district last transfer, going to Reno with me.
Sis. Smith S. - She is from New Zealand, Maori (pronounced moe-T), visa waited in her country.
|All the Brazilians!|
|Gary is the bald man, and these are the missionaries who taught him (except me, I just jumped in)|
|Got our Texts|
|The district plus the Elders giving us the tour!|
|We were chewing gum and I was too lazy to take it off|
|The long awaited text|
Seriously, the busy season is practically gone, and I can almost sit on my hair!
