Well a few of BIG things happened this week.Numero Uno:
And Numero Tres:I'm being transferred. After almost a year of serving in the same city, I'm being moved down south to the city of Krasnodar. My new companion's name is Sister Kennard. This is her last transfer, so I'll be "killing off" a companion (that's what it's called when your companion goes home). The good news is, Sister Montierth (with whom I've been serving my whole mission) is coming with me! And I'll be reunited with Sister Greenwood! She's down south in Krasnodar too. Not to mention one of my former zone leaders, Elder Barlocker, and another elder who served with me here in Volgograd, Elder Barnes. So, it's bound to be a good transfer.
"For behold, this is my work and my glory to bring to pass the immortality and the eternal life of man."
God's whole purpose for us being here is for us to learn and become like Him. To perfect ourselves and become better than we were. And he gives us trials in our life to do just that. They can be very difficult, but He never leaves us alone. If we turn to Him, He will always help and guide us. We're His children, aren't we? So, although I'm leaving my beloved Volgograd, it's time for me to move on and learn more in a new place where I'll be able to help even more people.

Freesia and Freda (some of the members from Ghana here for school) made us African food for 4th of July! Oh, also that's Elder Wride (one of my zone leaders) and Sister Kukla (one of the sisters in my district).
