Big news first... this morning, I said a hard goodbye to my sweet companion Sister C. It was the most amazing experience serving with her at the end of her mission! What a privilege to see what a missionary should look like at the end of their mission. I grew so much by her side and loved every second. It was such a joy! I also picked up my new companion. Who wants to guess who is here by my side in Maribor for the next 2 months. SISTER N.!!!!!!!! Do I even have to express how excited I am? When I found out on Thursday, I almost cried. How blessed I am to be with someone I already love for my birthday, Christmas, and New Years. God is so aware of us! It was the best surprise ever! She knew a little before me and was just dying to tell me. We have been quietly celebrating since we got together this morning. Grocery shopping was so easy because we already know what the other likes haha. I am so excited to not have to get over the awkward "get-to-know-you" phase of the transfer and just get to work loving the people in Maribor and spreading the gospel! Once again, by the side of Sister N.!
As it was Sister C.'s last week, we worked hard and saw the Lord lead us to families who accepted us and we are teaching. We were given free crepes because the guy respected our work. We were caught laughing on an atheist doorstep when Sister C. accidentally introduced herself as me haha. It was such a great week and I grew to love the people of Maribor, my companion, the Lord, and His work even more.
I am sorry this is short. I am just so excited to catch up with Sister N. and show her that I know Slovene now haha kinda. I love you ALL! Thank you for your prayers and support!
