Hello Everyone! This week has been a doozy- so be prepared!
Well, so, my week! Monday I was in Newark all day because S.Wood went to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty for her departing trip. I played dodgeball and got a bunch of elders out and basically won their respect and friendship because i dont throw or catch "like a girl". woot! #ThankYouSoftball
Wednesday we went on my last exchange (though i didnt know it then) and i went to Perth Amboy for the 3rd time this transfer! i love Spanish exchanges. We had 8 exchanges this transfer, and i only stayed in my area for 2 of them. Add in all the meetings and conferences and everything else we had to do this transfer, and you can see that i was never even here. I think its just a testimony to me that i was supposed to be Sister Wood's companion more than i was supposed to be here in Scotch Plains. i was called here for her, not so much for the area. Kinda crazy how the Lord works! Anyways, the exchange. We went and did service and i met lots of Hispanics, and i went to a Spanish FHE and i sung hymns in Spanish, and we packed 12 people into a 6 person van, and basically it was a party! Im super glad i could go to Perth one more time before i left.
On Saturday we went to Philly again for the temple! We went in a huge group and just laughed the whole way there- it was a riot! It was a beautiful to go a 2nd time, and we even saw a bunch of Amish people that were going on a tour too! So cool how to temple draws people from all walks of life.
Ok thats about it for me! We're going to go bowl as a zone for the last time!
Stay Jersey Strong!
I love you all!!!
love, Sister McAllister
