Hey Everyone! I Know I just talked to You Wednesday, but the rest of the week was pretty good! I am just going to get into it!
Wednesday- Wednesday was a weird day! I was mostly saying goodbye to people, and finishing packing up a little bit! It was kind of weird! At this point the transfer didn't really seem real! I had been in Sullivan for so long that I really didn't think I would leave! I definitely created some good relationships there, and I was kind of sad to have to leave!
Thursday- Waking up for the last time in Sullivan was weird! After shoving all of my stuff in a car, and getting on the road it really started to get real! We met in Springfield! Saying good bye to Elder Durrant was kind of hard! I really like him! We had a lot of fun together! When it was time to go they told me I would be driving a car on the loop! I drove from Springfield to Branson! That was kind of fun! It was about a 35 minute drive! When we got to Branson they told me I was driving again this time clear to Springdale! That one was an hour and 45 minute drive! It was fun! There was only me and One other missionary! We talked the whole time, and really had a good time! I got to See Elder Jackson which was way good! Elder Butler and Elder Olsen Picked me up, and we headed down to Poteau! It is really weird to see Elder Olsen because I know him! It just is a weird thing! I dont really know how to describe it! I really like Elder Butler as well! It will be fun! When we got to Poteau the Branch President gave me a blessing for the area, and it was so good! I am super excited for Poteau especially after that blessing!
Friday- Friday I leaned something! Our apartment is Ghetto!!! Right now I am sleeping on an air mattress, but that is not to bad! The apartment is just super small, and kind of run down! It isnt the worst, but it is far from the best lol!! Friday we went on an exchange, and it was way cool we got to split up! Elder Olsen and I went with a member, and Elder Butler went with another member! Elder Olsen and I were able to set 3 baptismal date with a referral, and it was awesome! It was a mom and her 2 kids!
Saturday- We visited a ton of people on Saturday! There was a ton of people that I cant really remember who they all were! The Missionary work here in Poteau is awesome! The Branch is soo cool! That night we went to the main attraction of Poteau! It has the Highest Hill in the world!! It is 1,999 feet tall! If it was 1 foot taller it would be considered a mountain, but it is a hill, so that is really cool!
Sunday- We went to church, and that was really good! I am going to tell you this, I am going to fit in here! The 2nd counselor in the branch presidency has a huge beard, and shows up to church wearing blue jeans and boots! Then 2 out of the 3 young mean are wearing jeans and boots! It is a really cool town!! After Church we went around with a Youth, and took the Sacrament to Shut ins! We had a cool experience! At this one ladies house we knocked, and she didnt answer! We all felt liked we needed to keep knocking! Eventually we even went around back, and started knocking! For some reason none of us could leave! We just kept knocking! After 15 minutes of Knocking we decided we were going to leave, and just as we were walking away she answered! We gave her the Sacrament, and she started Bawling! We found out that a few days ago she got a high fever, and it took her out! She said it put her in a different world! She couldn't get up, or eat or anything! She herd our very last knock, and that is what got her to come out of the little phase she was in! It was super amazing to be a part of! We also took the Sacrament to a 94 year old WWII Vet, and that was way cool to listen to him tell stories! Sadly his health is not doing the best, but he is a dang good guy!
That was my week! This upcoming week is going to be a good week! We have Zone Conference tomorrow, Stake Conference Sunday, and a ton of Splits with members planned! It will be awesome!
