This is my last email to you as a missionary. I don't know how I feel about that. Let me talk to you about last week. I know how to do that! :D
Monday was a crazy P-day because Sister Harvey had her dentist appointment, so I don't really have much to say. We got everything done though, and that is what is important!
On Tuesday, we went to a thrift store to do service (we signed up to come the week before, so this was our first time). We stayed in the back and reviewed the things that had been donated to see if the store could really sell them. It was great! We then went to a lesson with Linda. She had also requested that the elders come and do yard work for her, so we asked the elders to come, too. In the end, all three sets of elders in the zone came to work in her yard! It was pretty funny. The lesson was great. We answered her questions about her Book of Mormon reading and taught her about Faith in Christ. It was a great lesson. After that, we had lunch and then went to visit a family in the ward. We had a good lesson with them. After that, we went to San Jose for my exit interview with President Mella. That went really well! We grabbed dinner on our way out of San Jose and didn't get home until pretty late because the traffic was so bad. We then met with the Zone Leaders to plan ZTM. It was a good day.
On Wednesday, we had service at the kitchen that we usually go to. Sister Harvey and I were cutting onions and the elders were teasing us about crying (haha). We then had lunch and tried to see some people. We also picked up a new investigator! We visited a less active and his ex-fiancée who was a potential. We taught them The Restoration and she agreed to meet with us again! Woohoo! Her name is Gail. She is awesome! We then visited a woman who recently moved into the ward and set up an appointment with her for this week. We then met with our ward mission leader in the YSA ward before going to dinner with Piyush. We had so much fun! After dinner, we dropped by another family and visited them. It was a good day.
On Thursday, we went to Livermore for their ZTM. It was great. After that, we went to lunch with the Livermore sisters. We then went back home and weekly planned. After weekly planning, we went to see another one of the seven year olds that we are teaching. We then had dinner and splits. Only one of the ward missionaries came, so Sister Harvey and I were in a trio with her. We tried to see some people, but they weren't there. We then went to see someone else and managed to find her home and set up an appointment for later that week. It was great.
On Friday, we had our Zone's ZTM. It went really well (long, but well). The Zone had me get up and give my final testimony, too. Thankfully, I didn't cry. It was really hard to do it. Especially because a couple of those missionaries I have known since the beginning of my mission. We then tried to see some people and then went to the church to give a tour to a hindi group that is doing a show this weekend. They were late, though, and we had to go to dinner. Someone else was able to give them a tour though. :) We then had dinner and then had a lesson with the Vagos (our three baptismal dates). We were going to teach The Plan of Salvation, but we ended up reading scriptures with them. We read Ether 3. It was so good! :) We were then going to meet with a family, but they had to cancel. It was a good day.
On Saturday, we had coorelation with one of our ward mission leaders. We then had lunch and tried to see the girl who we set up an appointment with on splits. She wasn't home though. We then went to Fremont for their ZTM. It was a really good ZTM. We then tried to see some people before dinner. We ended up having dinner with a family in the ward and the elders, because the mother forgot she had signed up to feed the elders before she had invited us to come because she saw that we didn't have a dinner that night. It was a fun dinner. We then dropped by a potential investigator who we had been trying to see for weeks. She was home! We met with her and her husband and taught them a lesson. So, we got two more investigators! :) That night, we had transfer calls. The Zone Leaders told me that I am going home (big surprise) and they told Sister Harvey who her new companion is going to be. It will be my daughter, Sister Kelly. We asked who else was leaving and we found out that every companionship is changing. So, we are all going to transfer meeting on Tuesday!
On Sunday, it was ward conference, so we didn't have our ward councils. Ward conference was great. The Bishop and the Stake President spoke. :) We then had lunch and went to church with our YSA. That was good, too. We then met with Amity and had a lesson with her. After that, we tried to visit someone the Relief Society asked us to see, but she wasn't home. We then stopped by some people so I could say goodbye. We then went to dinner and then I said goodbye to more people. It was an emotional day.
Today has been good. We did our errands and now we're here. We are going to hang out with the zone today too. Tonight, we have dinner and there are a couple more people I want to say goodbye to. We also have a meeting with one of the high councilmen. Should be a good day.
Well, have a good one. I will see you on Wednesday!
