So we usually find out if we are going to be transfered the Sunday night before, but we never got a call last night. So we don't know if we are staying or leaving. I'm sure we will find out later today. Just to be safe I would send mail to the mission office this week and I'll let you know next Monday. It will be interesting to see what happens this next transfer. If I stay in the same area we will probably lose one of our wards. Since there are so many new missionaries coming in they have to create a lot of new areas, making the areas that are already small even smaller. Soon every missionary will have one to two wards. I'm guessing we will start doing things online by the end of this next transfer also.
This week we got trained in family history. The senior couple that is in our district is going around and teaching the missionaries about family history and how to use familysearch. I did not know that you can now put stories and pictures on familysearch. We had about an hour to go on to familysearch and it was cool to see some of the pictures and stories that were already on there. We had a few teaching appointments this week, but not as many as usual. We have a few people we are working with, but sometimes it's hard to set up appointments because people are so busy.
I'm glad everything is going well at home. I'm so excited to hear about Alysa's mission call. I can't believe I'm almost 19. It's almost been a year since the age change. I'm so excited for general conference again. One of the focuses President Nattress is making is on apostolic promises. Just like that promise that I sent a few weeks ago. During this next conference I'm going to specifically look for the apostolic promises.
Thanks for all your prayers. Love you all!
