Well... Sister Brown and I are staying together for one more transfer!!! Happy Day! I love her so much! I just hope we won't get too sick of each other! :)
Well, Yesterday I had to say goodbye to one of my favorite missionaries. Sister Shaver. (One of the first sad goodbye's of many I'm sure...) At the end of every transfer we have a departing fireside and that was last night. All the departing missionaries bear their testimonies and then there are musical numbers as well. Last fireside I sang and played a song that I wrote, this fireside I sang a duet with another sister named Sister Andelin. We sang "A Child's Prayer" It was really awesome! I love Departing Firesides. You can't go unless you are in the program or you bring and investigator. Sherry came also! It was great! I love her! She does so much for us!
So... speaking of Sister Perry! I have a really funny story about her. Right before I left on my mission... Like DAYS before... I discovered an email on Facebook from some girl named Michelle Perry. I was so confused and so I opened the email and read what she had to say. She proceeded to write that her name was Michelle and she had been called to the same mission as me and was supposed to enter the MTC on the same date too, but she had to get surgery on her foot so she had to delay her entrance date. I emailed her back and we talked back and forth for a few minutes and then she asked if she could receive my weekly emails. So I said sure and put her email address on the list. Well, I won't lie.. I thought she was a little weird at first. Hahaha But I was like, whatever! So she came in this past transfer (the 16th of July) and I met her for the first time. We both recognized each other and it was a weird little reunion/introduction. Long story short, she is probably one of the coolest people I have ever met and we will be friends forever! I love her so much! She is hilarious and has an AMAZING desire to just work super hard. How could I have ever called her weird? :) We laugh about it now! She was Sister Shaver's comp. this last transfer. She's hilarious and I love her! Hopefully we will get to be companions at some point! We have 9 more transfers to get a shot!

Well, As far as the work is going here, We are still teaching Sherry! We taught her about the 10 commandments and also about following the prophet this week. We watched the Mormon Message "Good Things to Come" by Elder Holland. I HIGHLY suggest it! It is a really good one! The spirit was really strong and me and Sister Brown just really bore our testimonies that we know that President Monson is called of God along with all of the quorum of the 12 apostles. I love those men. They truly are Called of God.
Well, I love you all so much! Ready for another week in the Great California Long Beach Mission! (Arguably the greatest mission in the world!)
