The Samoan elders and Elder Pugh
Zone meetingHello one and all!
Yet another 6 weeks has passed, and another transfer has ended. Good news, I stayed in the area. The sad thing is that Hermana Schmutz was transferred. My new companion is Hermana Johnson. She's from Utah and is tall, blonde and skinny. We've met before and are getting along just fine. It's going to be a good 6 weeks. Also, this is the beginning of my third to last transfer. The end of my mission is rapidly approaching. I think I'm currently in the denial stage.
This week was all sorts of crazy. Actually Monday was fairly normal. And Tuesday was normal until about 10 at night. When the assistants to the president called. That always means something out of the ordinary is happening and in this case it was Hermana Schmutz being invited to attend MLC on Wednesday. So I spent a good portion of Wednesday with a different sister whose companion was also attending MLC. She is serving in the area just above us and so we visited some people in both areas. It was fun because the people we visited in her area were people that I had taught in my first area.
Then Thursday was zone meeting which is always a good time. Then on Friday another sister was with us for the first part of the day because her companion was going to the meeting for trainers. So basically we were on exchanges for most of the week. But now the transfer has come and things should calm down to normal. Hermana Schmutz is now a sister training leader in El Monte, Elder Pugh now has only one companion and one area, and all should be well. At least for the moment.
In the non crazy parts of the week, we did some service, went to a fireside for a departing missionary, ate with a lot of members and visited a lot of people. It was all a lot of fun. It was a good way to end the transfer.
See you all next week!
