She'll be on a plane Wednesday night on a red eye flight. Here are highlights of the week:
FHE: So the Ronnes are a part-member family in the ward who have quite a few recent converts. Sister Ronne has been a member for a year now and her two daughters have been baptized within the last 6 months. Braden, their son, is the youngest and who we are teaching. We teach him while we teach Nerissa, the new member lessons. This past week they fed us dinner for the first time and wanted us to teach them how to have FHE (Family Home Evening). This is basically family night with a spiritual thought. We were thrilled to be able to teach them how to have FHE. This happens normally on Monday nights where the family comes together, sings a song, says a prayer, shares a spiritual thought or lesson to facilitate a discussion among the family members and plays a game or something fun that the family enjoys doing together. A treat is optional, but it adds the cherry on top. The home is the best environment to teach our children the gospel and what better way than to set aside a time out of our busy lives to come together and teach one another principles The Savior taught and have some fun.
Temple: We had the opportunity to go to the temple again this transfer. I love going to the temple. I always seem to go in with wanting guidance and while I read from the scriptures in the temple, I read certain verses that teach me what I need to work on. Our P-day was then on Wednesday, so while we were in Anchorage, we did some shopping.
Interviews: We had our last interview with President and Sister Robinson. This time they kept us together in the same room to talk to us together. They talked about treating the missionaries like we treat our investigators and other people with whom we come in contact. Wasilla and Palmer interviews happened the same day the sisters normally get our transfer calls, so because we had our interviews then, he told me my transfer call right after the interview. I will be receiving Sister Pike who is coming from the Jewel Lake area in Anchorage. She has been out for about 9 months. I'm excited and can't wait to see how this next transfer goes. Sister Williams had her exit interview a couple of days later.
