I hope that you all have had such a wonderful week! We had some crazy weather this past week. We had one pretty large snow storm on Friday-Saturday, but now it is back to being spring today. So Vermont is crazy, and I love it!
Well I guess I will get into some of the big news that has come upon us. This week is transfer week and so we got a call last night telling us about what will be happening to us and our zone for the next transfer. It is so sad that Elder Augir is going home this week, but he will have a fantastically successful life! It has been great to be his companion for two transfers and I love him! Now it gets even crazier. I will also be leaving the Essex area. Yep, they are taking us both out and putting a new set of Zone Leaders in, which is like very unheard of and uncommon. I got told where I was going, and I will be headed down to Manchester, NH. I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve the entire mission and be assigned to be the next Assistant to the President. I have a lot of mixed emotions on this call, but I feel just so incredibly blessed for the opportunity that I now have to learn so much and serve so many missionaries. There will be a lot of shaking up in my life now and I am excited for it. There is also some really crazy things happening to the rest of our zone, but y'all probably have no idea if I just threw out all of the people and things that are coming in and out. I am so grateful for the chance that I have been able to serve in the great state of Vermont. There have been a lot of people that I have met here that I will love forever, and I am sad to leave. I am excited for the new adventures though. But there were some crazy, awesome, and miraculous things that happen this past week that I want to tell you about!
The first thing that stands out is that one of the families that we have been working with that I have told you a little bit about before, The Ravelin family. They finally came to church!!!! We had to get two different people to bring two different cars to be able fit all of them in cars to be able to get them to church, but they got them there none the less! It was so great to have them there. The mom's biggest reaction was that it was full of real people that have real problems that she can relate to and can see how the gospel can bless their lives. So keep being those examples for the people and be real!
We also got to go and do some sugaring this week, which was way fun! We did it at this one school that a member works at that is kinda like a Harry Potter-ish house that is pretty crazy haha. We got to and collect the sap and then see it get boiled down into the wonderful golden deliciousness!
Well I got to get going, but I hope that you all have a wonderful week! I love you all!
