I had my first being chased by a dog experience. It was my fault though because it had tiny puppies and we got out of the car to see them. Don't try to walk up to new puppies when the mom is close by.
Thursday we had dinner with one of the recent converts in the ward, who runs the zoo/animal preserve we volunteer at and he barbecued and made a bonfire! The elders in our district came too and it was a lot of fun! We even made smores under the stars :)
While we were there, the zone leaders got leadership calls from the assistants so they could tell us right away instead of waiting till later. And I'm training again! So Friday we had trainers training, and one of President Bonham's companions from when he was serving was there! President talks about this companion a lot since they are still best friends, so it was cool to meet him in person. The meeting lasted literally all day between all the traveling there and back and whatnot, but it was so good. But with that, we knew Sister Bird and I were being split up. We were hoping for 2 transfers together, but the Lord has other plans! And this morning we got the text and it is official so Sister Bird will be leaving tomorrow. :(
Last night we had a meeting with all the missionaries in the zone and our ward mission leaders. It was really good and one of President Bonham's councilors was there, and he was quoting someone and said that the Hastening of the Work is the most significant event to happen in the world since the First Vision. How cool is that that we all, full time missionaries and member missionaries get to be a part of that!
Love, Sister Tennant
