sorry this isn't a very good picture and for some reason some of the missionaries think they should make really strange faces for the pictures
I love these guys.
I love these guys.
another transfer day!!!
I don't know how the time goes by so fast
This week was our last District meeting with Elder Crossley and Sister Helelyan. Transfers aren't officially announced until tomorrow at transfer meeting so I don't know where they are going. I just know they won't be with us next week and I am sad about that. I love Elder Crossley, he makes me laugh and Sister La La La, as Elder Crossley calls her is wonderful. She is from Armenia where she is an attorney and she doesn't take nothin from nobody. I love her too and will really miss her.
the other sad thing is......
a few days before transfer day missionaries go home. So this week Elders Karren, Burrup, Callister, and Andersen left Ukraine
in a few weeks Elders Carlson, Crossley, Harris, and Williams will be leaving. I was talking to Sister Fry (the Mission Presidents wife) who has been here for about 3 months now and she said, "these departures are getting harder and harder because now I know the missionaries and it is hard to see them go". It is so true, the longer we are here the closer we get to the missionaries and we really like them. When they leave I make them promise to write me ...........
at least the ones who have been in our District.
We have had such good times together here in Ukraine and I want to stay in touch. Some of them have written and I am so grateful for that. There are a few that I haven't heard from and would love to know how things are going. I keep thinking about Elder Basset, Elder Crawford, and Elder Permenter. I hope you are happy. We miss you and hope life is good to you.
Which brings me to this.................
I don't get much e-mail. My blog is how I correspond with my friends and family. The only thing is the blog is one-way. You get to hear all about what Bruce and I are up to but I don't know what is going on in your lives. I keep saying, I love being a missionary. We are so happy having so many awesome experiences and meeting so many wonderful new friends, however, we miss you all. I want to know how you are and what you are doing. I have some very loyal friends who are writing regular e-mails and I am so grateful for that.
I really want to ask a favor of the rest of you blog stalkers. (That's the term used for people who just read your blog and don't leave a comment)
Please leave a comment.
That means you moms and dads too!!!
I know you are reading .......your missionaries tell me. I would love to hear from you. Don't be intimidated. It is very easy. You don't have to say much. I took off the word scrambler so it would be easier to comment. my blogging friend Lisa in Poland says, "you may have to click "anonymous" if you don't have a google account or a blog and then sign your name at the end of your post. So try that and let me know if it works. I will also leave my email address in my profile if you feel too intimidated to publicly comment. So to all the parents of missionaries coming home.....
thanks for preparing your sons and daughters to be servants of the Lord, it really is an awesome experience and they grow so much during the time they are on their missions.
