Well the time for transfers has come once again and Sister W and I thought we were safe but to no avail. We are being transferred...Sister W is going to open a new STL area in Glen Allan with my dear Sister W <3. And I am getting a new companion, Sister H! We are super bummed but we are ready for a new experience! We found out yesterday morning and the whole day we proceeded to hug and cry and hug and cry and visit people in between. It has been a really sad couple of days..I love Sister Whiting so much! She is so great!!! #bestfriendsforever
|Sis. W and I...BFF's|
|We watched this school burn down. This is the day after the fire|
As for other fun exciting news we went on exchanges with Stettler this week. I got to stay in Lakewood with Sister A whom I have been in exchanges with before when she was my Sister Training Leader! It was so fun to be with her again! She goes home this week! Ahh! Everyone I know in the mission is leaving! Crazy how time flies!

This week was Millwoods Stake Conference! And it was super good! We had Elder Stacy from the seventy presiding and he was a fabulous speaker! The focus was on the Family Proclamation and keeping the Sabbath Day holy!
|Lunch with our "made-up zone. We never see anyone in our zone |
so we joined this zone. Haha!
Sunday we met a new family in our Ward. The husband, N, is a member but hasn't been to church in 40+ years and his wife, K, is not a member, yet. :) They are both super excited to be coming back to church! We can't wait to start teaching them!

So now on to a funny story...we were kidnapped this week. But not a usual kidnapping. We were scheduled to have dinner with C this week so we went over to her house and she informed us that she would be kidnapping us, but we drove our own car..she took us to Mucho Burrito where we had super good Canadian Mexican food (it doesn't even compare to the Mexican food in the States but we haven't had good Mexican food in over a year so it was good!) the. She proceeded to have us follow her to Goodwill where she took us shopping for clothes for other Sisters in the mission because she has been having nightmares that some of the Sisters don't have clothes to wear...oh
man. C has too big of a heart! She is too cute! Well that is our lame kidnapping experience. #kidnappedtoshop
|Dinner with C, H her member friend, S her daughter|
and S boyfriend.
|My very first day in Lakewood we went to C's house and we put huge |
containers of ketchup into smaller containers. We were at her house
yesterday and saw these massive ketchup containers and were reminded
of the last time we saw those. :)
Well that is about the extent of our week. I hope you have a great week!!
Love, Sister Burton xoxo
