What? 5 Transfers?

Well folks, I'm not quite sure what revelation my mission president is receiving but it I got our transfer announcements today and it turns out that I am STAYING IN VICTORIAS! I'm not really quite sure how I feel about this right now. I've been here for so long. I have such strong relationships with people here, so it is just going to get harder and harder to leave. I really thought I was going this time, because 4 transfers is a long time, 5 is SOOOO dugay (that means long). It's also hard because I just kind of felt like I needed a new area to help me grow and progress in new ways, but apparently the Lord thinks there are still some things for me to learn here that I haven't yet. So I'm just going to trust in him. In happy news, I think I am finally starting to get better. Or maybe I'm just so used to it now, it seems normal. But I really do think things are better. And thankfully, milling season at the cane factory is coming to a close soon, so then I won't has a much junk in the air to worry about. So that's a silver lining.

I am pretty happy that this will mean that I will get to be here for a baptism that is very important to me. It's for Sister Elizabeth. She almost cried when we had to move her baptism date and I told her I might not be here. But now I will be. Maybe it's just for her. I don't know. But I'm way happy that I will be here for that.

So ironically my companion took over as the sick patient this week. She's been having some problems with her eyes and so I got to take care of her. It was so nice not to be the sick one, but to get to take care of one. She told me in companionship inventory this week that she knows how much I love her because of how worried I get and how I try to take care of her. That wa sso nice to hear. I love my companion and I am sad that I won't have her anymore. I forgot to mention that. She is actually just movig to the other ward in Victorias, so she will stay in my house, but just not stay my companion... sad. But at least she is still around. Changes... I don't like 'em, but that's just how life goes, especially in the mission.

Well other than all the crazy stuff, things are going really good. We have 2 families that we are teaching now, which is a huge blessing. And I have hopes that we will be able to find more quality people as well. We have another baptism this Saturday. Sister Myrna passed her interview and will be baptized this week! I'm excited for that. Bishop has a goal for 15 baptisms this year. I will have been there for at least 7 of them... awesome.

Well I love you all, not too much more to report over here in the Pines. Amo man gihapon (that means same as usual). Keep in touch if you get the chance!

Sister Jackson
