What's up, all? The Luke Sister here, still alive and breathing, so that's good news:) I am so, so, so, so, so happy right now. A week of hellos and goodbyes and changes, but I could not be happier.
One Tuesday, I sent my poor daughter Sister O off to the big ol' world (in the very capable hands of an eleventh transfer sister) to open an area. And then I took a deep breath and was off on my own adventure, called, find the mission office while traveling in a tri-panionship of sisters who have never travelled to the mission office before. And a meeting to learn to train (again). And the airport (again). And... Met my new companion!!! Sister M is a doll, my word, I am so blessed.
Pretty sure she is teaching me more than I'm teaching her, she is incredible. Haha my only advantage is the language, thank you parents:) I can tell this will be a great transfer, I am very excited:) She is fearless and full of faith, and she inspires me to be better. I am very, very blessed indeed.
For those who are curious, yes, I did see Sister Y at the airport and the orientation, which was a mini miracle and mercy of the Lord. This mission just gained a lot of warriors, lemme tell ya.
I dunno. I'm just really happy right now. There are scary things, but I know that it will all be okay.
I love you:)

Tried to take a picture with the cool clouds... Didn't work too well. But helmets are always good fun.
A happy missionary
