Its finally snowing here and it came too late for a white Christmas so now everyone is just grumpy about it! haha...its really funny. Its still really pretty but it is starting to get really cold so it makes it hard to want to do anything outside. Typical Ohio though...crazy weather:)
New Years day we got to go to Mission Leadership Council. I can't think of a cooler way to start off the New year then that. It was awesome. We talked all about this new year and how to help the mission do better this year than last. It was such an inspiring meeting. It broke my heart to leave though, That was my last Mission Leadership council. I am so so SO grateful I have been privileged to be a part of so many MLC's and have learned so much through being able to serve as a Sister Training Leader.
Yesterday we then had Zone Training Meeting. It went really well. I love being able to meet together with our whole zone. Sis. Smith and I did a discussion on Exact Obedience and played a little jeopardy game with them. It was so fun and such a good reminder that exact obedience is doable and that God blesses us so abundantly when we try so hard to obey the rules and commandments and our covenants with exactness.
After some of us went out Burgerfi, its the yummiest burger joint around. I got the most ginormous onion rings and a key lime concrete. They basically stick a piece of Key lime pie in a cup with Vanilla Custard. Its the most delicious thing ever!
So they were late getting us transfer info again. We were so anxiousnight waiting to hear who was getting transferred. They never called...oh the suspense!!! Finally after Zone Training Meeting ended the Zone Leaders said "hey we have a missed call from the Assistants to the President......(they pause to listen to the voicemail)...Sister Finlinson and Sister Newren you are both getting transferred. Outzoned...." Sigh...I pretty much was expecting it but its still so sad. Its hard to be leaving Chardon!!! This really is such a special area and I have so enjoyed being a Sister Training Leader and being able to help in some small way the sisters here. I have made so many close friends and grown to really love the people here. I know my mission president is inspired though and I trust that God is putting me where he needs me for my last transfer. I think this change will really help me to work hard and keep pushing myself up until the very end.
So, today I get to spend the day packing...yippee!....not. It will be good though. Wish me luck, the adventures never end! Talk to you next week!
BYE LOVE YOU!!!!
