Family and Friends,
1. Are transfers next week? Any indications on what you will be doing?
To clarify, I will still be staying in New Georgia and so will Elder Cichoski! We will just split up and take different areas because the other two missionaries in our apartment were transferred out.
2. What is the greatest miracle you witnessed this past week? I think you will agree that miracles occur every day in our lives?
I do agree completely that miracles happen every day. I think I've mentioned this before, but I have seen so many "tender mercies" since I've come to Liberia. These mercies are never anything big or life changing, but little by little they build up. For example, random people picking us up because they feel prompted to. Or when we're really hungry and want to go back to the apartment, somehow a member feeds us. These are the miracles I experience every day!
3. Any fun P-day activities coming up?
Yes! We're planning on playing 9 vs. 9 kickball next Monday between my district and another district! I'm so excited. I'll try to send pictures next week!
4. Any Liberian holidays coming up? Monday is Martin Luther King Day here at home.
Hmm... Even if there are, I have absolutely no idea. Normally holidays just kind of sneak up on us here and before we know it our proselyting day is ruined!
Thank you again to every one who wrote me this week and prayed for me. I'm excited for this coming week and I can't wait to tell you who my new companion is! I love you all so much. Have a great week!
