This week has been crazy!!! So I left the MTC early Tuesday morning and finally got to Tempe! I flew in with my comp from the MTC, two elders from my district, and then two sisters that were coming from temple square for their outbound. We all stayed at our Mission President's home. I love President and Sister Toone SO much! They have welcomed us with open arms and he has huge arms seeing how he's 7' tall!! We went and did a session at the Mesa temple and it is so beautiful! It was built back in the 20's so it's very unique. We stopped by the visitor center to see what resources we had as missionaries that we could use to teach our investigators. Thursday morning was transfers and my trainer is Sister Clemens. She is the best companion ever! She's from Kentucky and is the oldest of 9! We're serving in Chandler and she's been here for 4 months! We have two wards we're assigned to which is a bit overwhelming but more to learn, right? We were able to watch Elder Perry's funeral and it was a beautiful service. I don't know if you noticed but apostles said both the opening and closing prayers! You never get to hear them pray so that was very special. This week we had a referral of this 80 year old women. We talked for a bit and then offered to vacuum her house. THREE cockroaches!!!! I was too paranoid to stay much longer after that. Lastly, I'm officially a Arizonian because I saw a scorpion! We were coming out of our neighbors house last night and there it was... just hanging out on the porch and I almost had a heart attack! But obviously I lived to tell about it so it's all good. Thank you for all the support and love over the past few weeks! It makes all the difference to missionaries! Love you all!
Love, Sister Eaton
Missionary Moment: I was biking... in my skirt... with my helmet... in the rain... I felt like a true blue Sister missionary!
