A New Hair-Do and Trunk or Treat

This week was a good one to end the transfer on! We had a lot going on that kept us busy and not thinking about the Saturday Night phone call.

Friday was the ward trunk or treat party. That was an amazing activity! i did a new hairdue for it.. haha :)  a lot of investigators came out to it and enjoyed it! also a lady came that no one knew, but when someone went to buy MORE hotdogs and hamburger meat, they invited her and she showed up! but left before we could catch her again. all the missionaries were the judges for the bake-off.. so pretty much we gotta taste-test the desserts before anyone else. i gained about 5 pounds.. so much good food. i also made that orange coolwhip fruit salad that dad would always make! it was a hit. apparently they call it "orange fluff", i barely got any. the bowl was scrapped clean haha.  


on saturday there was a wedding in the ward. it was a very cool experience. the ceremony was held outside and then the reception inside. it was my first time to a hispanic wedding. and it was entertaining! haha. though noone brought the booze.. most everyone was members haha.  the sand gnats are out and in force.. dang. they are annoying. they bite and leave marks.. they dont swell up like mosquito bites, but they are there, nonetheless.   

Saturday night we had the phone call and found out that Elder Ah Fook is going to be transfered and im going to stay here atleast another transfer. i am excited. 

Sunday was a good way to end the week. We had a baptism on parris island! it was amazing as always. next week, Brother Hammann is getting the priesthood and then graduating!  its always sad to see them go. 

Sunday at church was incredible. We knew that we were going to get a new bishop, and at the end of sacrament meeting, bishop gave his talk. I was sitting up on the stand behind because the ward choir (yes im singing here..) sang Called To Serve, but i was able to see everyones faces and their reactions. it was very spiritually.. he was very humble about the whole thing. he has been called to serve in the South Carolina Columbia Temple Presidency. He has been bishop here twice, for a total of 14 years. 8 years this last time.. it was very touching. 

the rest of sunday we spent saying goodbye to people for elder ah fook. it was a full day.. haha. 

ah. also this week i finished the book of mormon for the 4th time on my mission.. i cant express how powerful the book of mormon is.. i know that it is true. i love it.  

i love you all!
