What a crazy week!!! Okay SO much has happened I don't even know where to start! I guess I'll start from the very beginning... Sound of Music reference anyone? So the beginning of the week was full of good byes! We're lucky that our wards are so great that it makes saying good byes hard! Tuesday night were transfer calls..... 9:30- nothing 10:30- nothing 11:30- we get a text from our ZL saying that calls won't be until MORNING!!!! So the next morning we wake up, exercise, and get ready. At this point I'm a ball of nerves and I'm practically giving myself an ulcer! So we start personal study. We're about 20 minutes in, I was finally able to focus on the scriptures, when the sisters come in with the phone on speaker and President's on the line... do you know what it means when President's on the line?? So I answer, "Hi President" (if you know me I have my phone voice all the way as if I could cover up my shaking voice!) He answers, "Sister Eaton we would like to ask you if you would train?" I was so excited/nervous and whole bunch of other emotions! But then he asks, "We would also like to ask if you would serve as a Sister Training Leader" WHAAAT? I wasn't sure what to think or do but I heard myself say "Yes I will". Just so I don't hold you in suspense any longer... I am staying in Chandler! Transfers came SO fast and before you know it my "mom" "died" and now I have a "daughter"!!!! Her name is Sister Berezay (Bur-zay) and she's from Colorado. She's a sweetheart! #GreenieFire I now know why there's so much growth that takes place on a mission... it's because of all the change! Every time I think I get the hang of something the Lord's right there waiting to remind me of who I can become and so He pushes me just a little (or a lot) further. I'm grateful that the Lord trusts me to train one of His missionaries. I know there's still so much for me to learn but I trust that this is His plan for me. Just as it says in 1 Nephi 17:3 that if "the children of men keep the commandments of God he doth nourish them, and strengthen them, and provide means whereby they can accomplish the things which he has commanded them". I love this gospel with all my heart! What a privilege it is to serve a mission and wear the name of Christ on my tag. I love all of you all! Have the best week ever!
Love, Sister Eaton
