First off, we got transfer announcements this morning. Sister Jones has been called to be a Sister Training Leader (not surprised, she'll do great... but I'll miss her like crazy!), and I will be spending another transfer in the Pateros area. My new companion is Sister Doucette, who I briefly met once at the Mission Office and seems like a sweetheart. She went to the same school as my cousin Chase... crazy how people end up being connected here... I've run into two elders who went to Cedar High with me... but I had no clue who they were. Their names are Elder Roy and Elder Robertson. Anyways... I'm excited to have another transfer here, and that I don't have to leave my first ward right before the Christmas season!
Last Tuesday we had our Christmas conference. It was so much fun!! Every zone had to perform a skit and a musical number. Our zone was pretty average in both areas, but some zones had obviously spent hours if not days working on their skits, I swear!! It was super fun to watch everyone perform. I walked up to the floor where the party was being held and almost bumped into Sister Alailima. It was so great to see her!!! I kinda screamed and I think I scared her. :) We talked quite a bit during the conference and she is doing very well. :) I also saw several other members of my MTC district there which was as great as always. :) Not going to lie, the highlight of the Christmas conference was definitely watching a movie... that's right, a real movie, not just "The District" or "The Restoration". :) We watched "Arthur Christmas" which was a super cute animated movie and was fun because I've never seen it before. Watching it kind of left us all on "movie-withdrawal" for the next few days, but we got over it. :)
Sister Jones and I have continued to be blessed in our work! We had to drop a few investigators for one reason or another, but have been so blessed to find really strong potential investigators over the last few weeks as well! We've specifically been praying to find investigators around our age and families and have been blessed to find both! I wouldn't be surprised if we have several baptisms coming up in the next few months. :)
I'm so excited for Christmas!!! Not that will be doing much of anything really crazy fun, but still... it's Christmas, right? AND I get to skype with my family!!! AAHHHH!! I'm so excited to get to talk with them face-to-face (well, sort of face-to-face).
Merry Christmas to you all! Until next week!
Lots of love, Sister Dickison
