Whelp... we were not expecting this one at all... but I'm getting transferred. I was dead certain that I had one more here with Sister Burns. I'm super sad to leave her because she is amazing and I love her so much! I'm also so sad to leave Houma because it is just starting to blossom, and I adore the people so much. I'm also leaving the NOLA zone for the first time in my mission, so that's kind of sad too. BUT here are the positives: My new companion is not new at all because it's SISTER ALDER! Yep. After 6 weeks apart we're getting put back together. CRAZINESS! I'm so stoked because she is my favorite ever. So are all of my companions! Also, I'll be in a Spanish branch again which is super nice. I'll be in the same district as the temple, which I'm so excited about because I have only been to the temple once in my whole mission, and that was back when I was being trained. I know that I'm supposed to be in Baton Rouge for the next little while. I know that Heavenly Father has something for me to do/learn up there, and I'm excited to find out what it is. I would be lying though if I said I wasn't a little heartbroken to be leaving the bayou. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like to go home because just transfers are rough because you feel like you leave a huge part of your heart in every area.
The rest of this week was filled with random things from a trip to Grand Isle because we needed to see a less active who lives close to there, a mid-Christmas district party because it was June 25, and a funeral for two elders who are going home (complete with a 21-gun salute by 7 elders with the little popper firework things). Oh the mission craziness!
I love you all so much!!
