My new companion is named Sister Mickelson and she is awesome!! She's from River Heights, Utah (right outside of Logan). She's been out for 6 months, and just came from Athens, TN. This is her second area and I'm her third companion. I just love her! Sister Ramon just went to Hardin Valley so she still lives with us! It's so much fun :) The other sister came out at the same time as Sister Ramon so they are both really new, but it'll be good for them. Her name is Hermana Loper and she's from Oregon. She's a lot of fun. Sis Ramon got her visa on Wednesday. The policy is to make the missionaries wait until transfers so she will be staying her until April 6th then flying out to be in Australia when her mission does transfers on the 8th. I'm so excited for her! She's really nervous but happy too :)
It warmed up yesterday and today. It's supposed to hit the 50's and 60's this week and then go back to the 30's on Thursday, so we'll just have to enjoy it while it lasts. It's been staying lighter a lot longer here and it's been wonderful! It'll be nice to have it be so light later after daylight savings time-- people answer their doors more in the light. But I will definitely miss that hour of sleep!
My mission has showed me a lot how the Lord uses us, the members in our wards, to help those around us. There are so many people who need to feel loved and included and to be strengthened by the testimonies around us.
