Week 39

August 22, 2016

hello from Littleton, fam!! 

this week has gone by so fast! sister Paongo (pongo) and I are busy trying to figure out the area and meeting all the people! 

so Tuesdays were transfers, and when you're going back metro, they picked us up in Grand Junction, and we stop in Rifle to pick up more missionaries to take them metro too. In Rifle, we all spilt two to a car to drive some older cars metro to be replaced, and GUESS WHO WAS MY CAR BUDDY??? SISTER DAVIES!!!! tender mercy times one million. so we got the 4 hour car ride to catch up and talk, and it was SO fun. and even better, she is in my zone! so I get to see her lots still. 

This week has been lots of meeting with different members of the auxiliaries and trying to meet the people that were being taught. we made some appointments, and all but one fell through. its all good though!! next week we are set up for an awesome week. 

the members here are SO AWESOME!! we got to go to the High Priest social to meet more members, and they are all so welcoming and friendly, I can tell I will love it here. 

hope you all have an awesome week!!! love you!!
