Update was from June 29th
And week 6 of the transfer has come and gone. These transfers are going by faster and faster...
Monday we went to the park and played kickball with our zone! It was so fun getting to spend time with the zone before some of the elders go home. It's been super hot the last 2 weeks though. It's all anyone can talk about. I am going to be such a wimp when it comes to the heat when I get back to Texas!
Tuesday I was on exchange with Sister Connor in Thomas Lake. Some of their other sisters needed help so we went on a mini exchange with them. An exchange within an exchange!
We were outside walking for most of the day Thursday so we have some pretty funny tan lines starting to form. We have been drinking a ton to stay hydrated! We're hoping it rains again soon to cool everything down again cuz this heat is crazy!
Thursday was leadership calls. Next transfer, I'll just be a regular missionary, but Sister Johnson is training! Straight from being trained to training! She can do it- she is a great missionary and I am excited for her! We went to trainer's training Friday afternoon and I got to sit out in the hall with the other companions. Sis Connor was out there so it was good to get to talk to her before she goes home today.
Saturday was the Lyons' baptism! Super cute kids we've been teaching. The mom is a returning less active and the dad isn't a member (yet) and we loved teaching the kids!
Also on Saturday, we taught one of our investigators, Peggy. She has a sad story, so the gospel will truly bless her life. Before we left, she gave each of us a little angel statue because she loves us so much. It was so sweet! This is the second angel someone has given me. I love that I get to act as one of Heavenly Father's angels to bring His children back to him.
Sunday I spoke in Sacrament and said goodbye to everyone. It was bittersweet because Arlington will always hold a place in my heart!
Love, Sister Tennant
