First week of a new transfer and things are going really well. Staying in the same area for 3 transfers is the longest I have done but I feel a lot more comfortable with things out here now than the first time I spent 3 transfers in Poulsbo. The ward is doing well and things are really starting to pick up. This week we had the opportunity to teach Nicole Buxton twice and be able to see their family 3 times. They are a young family and Nicole is 9. She is planning to be baptized on Sunday the 19th in the evening. That will be really exciting. The Thompson weren't able to come to their Dad's this weekend so we will have to wait until Saturday to teach them this week but they are doing well and really hoping to help them prepare for baptism. They will make a great impact on the ward and the people around us.
This week the temperatures have been crazy hot. We got in the car on Sunday after church and it said 102 degrees. When we got home at night at looked at the temperature in our apartment it said 96. In our apartment. That sucked but it got worked out. We have Air Conditioning like not a lot of people do out here, but we haven't been using it because we don't want the bill to be too high for the church or something?? I don't really know why. But our landlord is going to fix it today so the apartment shouldn't be quite as hot but I guess by the end of this week it is going to be in the 60's again so that won't be too bad. Hopefully it will cool down fast and we will be able to not be soaked in sweat every day. I love it though so it isn't too bad. (:
Other than that this week was pretty normal. Just working hard and making sure that we are staying focused all the time so that we can accomplish everything that our Heavenly Father has in store for us. Hot weather and sunshine is way better than the rain so it is easier to get things done. Hope that you all have a fantastic week!!
