Due to the new security measures requested by the Mission leaders, the names of all investigators and people that Sarah comes into contact with will be replaced with the name of a well-known character from a children’s movie. This will keep the identities of people safe as well as make it easier to keep everyone straight. The name given is in NO WAY intended to reflect the personality, looks, or circumstances of the individual(s).
COUNTDOWN: 80 Days
March 17, 2014
Sorry for the lack of letter last week! The day got away from us with transfers and at about 9 o'clock I was sitting on my bed starting to pack and thinking, "I have forgotten something....what is it."
Then, Sister Zenger yells "WE DIDN'T EMAIL HOME! OUR PARENTS ARE GOING TO DIE!"
The good news is I have heard from you so I think that means everyone survived. And with that....the transfer news!
I have been transferred to the Northland Ward in
California Manteca means "lard" in Spanish.
Contrary to such an interesting name, it is a beautiful place and I love it
here! There are SO many people to talk to and teach, and I love being a bike
Tuesday I got to go to the temple and see many old mission buddies and the Doolittle’s. It was so great to be together again. I feel like I have this amazing collection of adopted family spread over
California. What an amazing blessing! I wish I could shrink
everyone down and carry them around with me always. It would make member
present lessons a breeze!
I got to
Manteca on Wednesday. My
companion's name is Sister Johnson. She is waiting on her visa to Brazil. She's
from , and I adore her! We are having
lots of fun. Currently, we are wearing matching green skirts for Saint
Patrick's Day, along with green necklaces that the member we live with gave us.
The people in the family history center loved it. Denver, Colorado
We are teaching a bunch of people and we found 3 new investigators this week that seem super prepared. We have been having a great time street contacting. We have met a lot of interesting people. I'll show you some of the movie reels in heaven. We can laugh together. And then those people (who by that time will be baptized) will say, "Oh my goodness! I SAID that!" And we shall all rejoice that the atonement is real and the gospel is true.
Sorry this is so short! I've got some scholarships to finish and I have to plan my classes for the fall...I wonder if they have "Adjusting to Normal Life: A crash course in reality for newly returned missionaries" ?
