Wooh another crazy week! ahahahaha but time just seems to fly!! We are already to week 4 in the transfer! so crazy!! We have been driving around picking sisters up from the airport, dropping them off at the mission tour, taking them to the airport, picking up new sisters... its all been real busy! haha we figured out that one day I was driving for over 4 hours and over 10 for the whole week. it was a lot. I was completely exhausted by the end of the week but its all good! what a blessing it is to have sunday and to be able to partake of the sacrament and get that boost for the next week! :)
But this past week we were soo blessed to have Elder Haleck and his wife come for mission tour. It was such a great uplifting experience! I received heaps of revelation and being and learning for him and from president Henderson was so good! and at the end they were doing this question and answer thing, and this sister stood up and asked through tears, "what does it feel like and what do you do when your stake president releases you as a missionary?" oh man. that just got me. The mission is hard. it is soo hard but even thinking about leaving and not being able to wear the badge or be with my companion anymore was such a difficult and sad thing to think about. I don't not want to leave!!!! and so I am very grateful I have quite a lot of time left because even though the mission is hard, it is sooo worth it!! I can't even describe it, it is just something you have to experience. But when she said that, I looked at my mission president and him and his wife both teared up because they are going home so soon. I will be soo sad to see them go but I am excited for the new mission president and his wife and to hear their ideas and revelation that they have that will lift this mission to greater heights!!
also to answer moms question.. it is still pretty hot here but for meetings like mission tour we have to wear cardigans and the elders have to wear suits. :)
we also found out that elder Andersen of the 12 apostles and elder robbins are coming to our mission in may!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! soooo pumped!!!!!
im so sorry that this email is all over the place.. today has been a crazy day because we had short interviews with president this morning and they came and inspected our flat and also our time to email is so limited.. hahaah so sad, but all goods. :) LOVE YOU FAMILY!!!!
love, sister Alldredge
