Hello from Lethbridge!

So I'm in my new area! I'm in Lethbridge and I'm serving in the Chinook area and let me tell you the last few days have been quite the adventure. So when we arrived to the transfer station on Wednesday morning it was definitely hard saying goodbye to Sister Blommaert. She's such an amazing missionary and I'm going to miss serving with her but I"m sure she'll do great things in Chestermere. It was super sad to say goodbye to Chestermere, we had a lot of good things going on when I left. I also thought there were only one set of Sister Training Leaders in the South but they put 2 sets because there were so many sisters to be over. We all got in the transfer van and headed south. It took about 2 hours to get to Lethbridge. My new companion is Sister LaCrue she's 32 and she goes home in 6 weeks. I should be able to learn a lot from her. The area we're in was just opened a few months ago so we have a lot to learn. The first day we were going to different members homes so I could meet them and I ended up tripping on the curb and I sprained my ankle....bad. It immediately started swelling like a giant hippopotamus and we went home for the rest of the night. I couldn't walk on it or anything. I was so angry with myself for being so clumsy! Ha oh well.

We currently have only 1 investigator in this area so I'm hoping we can start working really hard to find more. Honestly the past few days have been hard. So hard. Sister LaCrue is awesome and has so much patience with me. I just feel like I'm brand new in the mission field. I don't know anyone, there's nothing really going on in the area and I'm limping around on a stupid ankle with some pretty sweet bruises that were black and blue. Hahaha my life.

Anyways I've learned a lot in the last couple of days as well. I'm being humbled a lot. A LOT. I'm relying on Heavenly Father more and He's teaching me patience. 

This is how I look at it.....the first 3 months of my mission were rough.......and then after that it got really good and I started seeing lots of miracles and blessings and then I started becoming a little too confident and then Heavenly Father put me here and now I'm being humbled. And I'm grateful for it, even though its hard. I'm excited to see what me and Sister LaCrue can do in this area.

So as a sister training leader me and Sister Lacrue are over 16 sisters, covering the areas in Lethbridge, Stirling and Medicine Hat. We'll be going on lots of exchanges with them which will be fun because I get to see a lot more areas. We also get to go back up to Calgary this weekended for the mission leadership council. I'm sooooo excited to see Calgary again hahaha I miss it a lot. I can definitely tell I'm not in the big city anymore but it will be fun to explore Lethbridge and the other areas as well. 

Other than that I'm alive and doing well :) I love you all and hope you're all doing good as well. Give the new puppy a big hug for me! I'm jealous!
