Openshaw and Sister Tidwell and I all have plans to get together after
the mission. Sister Openshaw lives really close to the Pimentels (old mission presidents) too so
it would be nice to visit them. I still write them letters and Sister
Pimentel emails me sometimes. It's nice to have contact with them.
I'm glad you read my comments about the missionary age requirements to the girls in YW's and I hope they
really take to heart the call to serve. It is such a wonderful
opportunity they have. I can't wait till the first 19 year old sisters
come into our mission. We're all old fogies now. I didn't get to see XXXXXX before I left but I heard from Sister Tidwell that he backed out
of his baptismal date for the end of October. Halberstadt has gotten really crazy
since I left and poor Sister Tidwell is dealing with a lot of stress.
One day soon XXXXXX will hopefully get baptized.
Sister Dean is my new companion and she is a boss. I love working
with her and she definitely keeps me laughing. The ICE ride wasn't as
fabulous as I hoped it to be but na ja (no worries) it got me here right? I did like
the alone time because I was able to write or respond to a lot of
letters. The new apartment is way cool. It's about the same size as the
one in Halberstadt but just different. No more bunk beds. I'm stoked
about that. We have bikes in every area so we don't have to transfer
with them otherwise we would all probably shoot ourselves in the face,
that would NOT be fun. The week was really busy but fun and Sister Dean
and I finished it off with making out a baptismal date with an
investigator. Sick huh?! Bremerhaven is good. It's different but really
good. I love the ward already. They are all so willing to help us in
being joint teaches its almost unbelievable. Its cold here and rainy but
I hope you have a great week and that I was able to answer all your questions. I miss you bunches and love you more!
