Weekly Letter #36: June 8, 2020

Hello all!

So sorry to do this 2 weeks in a row but I am very low on time today so this email will most likely be decently short!

Yup. Nothing new to report. Still the same as last week.

I am very, very sad to report that after 7 months in Oldham, I have finally been assigned to move. I love Oldham with all of my heart and am so sad to leave, especially when I have such an amazing companion that I get along with so well. However, it has been 7 months and all good things must eventually come to an end.

However, don't be too sad because I am happy to report that I'm moving up to the Lake District in Barrow-in-Furness! I haven't really met my companion yet so I will update on her next week. I'm so so excited because obviously the Lake District is absolutely stunning and I'll be right next to the coast which is wonderful. Woohoo!

I'm also really excited because my trainer, Sister Clark is my STL, the sister missionary over me, and my previous companion Sister Patea is in my zone, as well as Sister Bardot from the MTC so I'll get to see everyone!

Oh boy, this week has been so crazy and there are so many stories. However, the funniest one (to me) is probably the fact that my mission president asked me to drive and chauffeur a bunch of sister missionaries around the mission on the motorways here. For those who don't know or remember, the cars here drive on the left side of the road, not on the right side of the road (in more ways than one). Please start fasting and praying for me and those sisters now haha.

Another quick one is that we had a MASSIVE box delivered to us, and we made it into a couch/Fort, but then one day I tripped on it and it ripped and it made me very sad :( life is hard.

So sorry this is short but, unfortunately, after living in a place for 7 months, your stuff tends to settle everywhere so I have lots of packing to do!

Love you all and have a good week!
