Saying goodbye to Sister Elliott.

Sister Johnson says, “I LOVE OROVILLE! it is really beautiful, trees and hills everywhere. It is pretty spread out, like a lot of the areas in Red Bluff. My Companion sister Benally is the COOLEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is amazing. She is super chill, and layed back. She reminds me of Kara and Alicia 🙂 Heavenly Father is awesome giving me a companion that i’m pretty much already best friends with! I really love the ward here. The work is in progress, we have a lot to do. We are going to really be focusing on working with the members… that’s the best place to start!”

Soy and Transfers…..

After a trip to the hospital last week, Sarah says goodbye to Red Bluff.

“It was from a roll, and Sister Curtis (who was in the mtc with me) was on an exchange with me.  We were up in Anderson, and miraculously the epi pen lasted like 30 minutes! So we drove to the nearest hospital, which we had no idea where it was, and got there in plenty of time. ( thank you holy ghost) i was out of the emergency room in 2 hours, and after a long night’s sleep, I was fine! Crazy! So that was a blessing.”

On Sept 15th, Sister Johnson was transferred to Oroville, California.

” I’m getting transferred to Oroville! Whoohoo! Super excited. I can’t believe that i’m going out of my first area already! Can’t wait to see what Oroville has in store, my companion’s name is Sister Benali, she is Navajo. Can’t wait to meet her and love her to pieces

Love you all!
-Sarah”

Still Hot in Red Bluff

Sarah says, “Its above 100 degrees out here again. People say that it rains sometimes in the winter….. but i’ll have to see that to believe it! I really am SO grateful we have a car. I don’t know how the Red Bluff Elders bike outside every day…and their progress record is always overflowing with people they saw. Yesterday we went to meet an investigator they picked up for us and we found out that they had mowed her lawn…. in their proselyting clothes. In the middle of the day. Pretty much they make us feel like pansies….. if we weren’t teaching upwards of 30 lessons a week i would definitely feel diminished by their awesome missionary skills.

The more research you do the more you find out that this really is the truth. I think that is something people are always shocked about. That we are willing to answer any questions they have and tell them to research everything as much as they want. They always love the Intro to the Book of Mormon, and say that they have never seen anything like that, being invited to read it for themselves. There are so many Christians here in Red Bluff, we are finding people who have the same core beliefs that we do! Its really amazing.

 I really love the people we are teaching…. it has been hard to see a lot of them turn away this awesome gift…. the opportunity for joy and peace is staring them straight in the face.. Even though it is simply coming from a couple of frizzy-haired girls who can’t stop smiling when they talk…. you would think that people would take their salvation more seriously! Well. we will keep praying that they will 🙂

Thanks for all you love and prayers!

– P.S. Miggy is getting baptized this saturday!”

Facebook!

Sarah says, “It is easy to forget sometimes that this is my time! ” Its a miracle” by Niel L. Anderson really sums it up, this is a miraculous time to be living and to be serving as a missionary, especially because guess who gets to use facebook!!!!!??? WE do! We are one of 12 missions in the world testing this out, and president has asked that only Zone leaders and sister training leaders try it first.  We will be able to post things and stuff but i can’t chat with anyone or send messages to family and friends, so that rule still applies. If anyone wants to talk to me they can write or email me, but i can’t talk to them on facebook. I am so excited! “
