Wow….. so crazy week!! I am going to do bullet points because there are no words for this week...
I said goodbye to Anoka on Wednesday. It was sad and so hard to leave Sister Richardson and my Elders. I will especially miss my “little brother” Elder Johnston. Not to mention all my peeps; Sister B; Pat and Muriel........the list of people in Anoka I love, goes on and on.

Friday, I got transferred over to Bloomington. I was alone in the car with the AP’s for quite a while which was interesting and fun. Later, I took a really nice long nap at the mission home while cute Sister Fife, half of our new Mission Health Senior couple “baby sat” me…. Lol! Later it was off to Bloomington to join my companions. They have been together since summer! They are really nice. I sleep on the top of a bunkbed which makes me feel like a mix between a baby in a crib and a princess high up in her castle!

Sunday we had meetings all morning. Guess what!!! I saw Sarah Edgington and Annika at the church! The lake Noko Ward was split this summer right after I left, so they go to a different building now! It was so good to see them! We took the sacrament in the hall so Sister S. wouldn't get anyone sick. After that we took her across the parking lot to the mission home. It was our way of having her quarantined. We walked back and forth during church to check on her. Can I just tell you the Bloomington Ward has SO MANY BABIES AND PREGNANT ladies!!!! (It feels like a Utah ward……lol!) Honestly, everywhere you turn there is a baby! Relief Society was from the talk by Elder Bednar from October conference. He testified of the wisdom of Heavenly Father having the church being run by older “seasoned” men. I loved it! President Monson and President Hinckley are so cute! I know that Pres. Hinckley was and President Monson is our Heavenly Father’s living prophet upon the earth! As I was leaving church I saw Lucianne! It was so cool to say hi! We had a nice nap after church then went to President’s Fireside. When we got there, I saw PAT! PAT CAME GUYS! Sister Richardson and I had the longest hug, and then Pat and I hugged. Next, Sister Jolley and I hugged followed by Mazie! So much love was shared! It was so special. Pat is great. I love her and miss her so much! She is doing well though. Lol! She tried to kidnap me there. It was super funny! That's all she wrote for this week folks! I had an awesome quote for you but ran out of time! Stay
tuned in until next week for it! Until then…..
