Sick. Emergency exchanges. Transfers. Oh my!‏

This has been a crazy week where so much happened yet nothing at all. It all started out pretty normal. We saw some people who we haven't been able to see in a while. Then Sister Christensen got super sick. She thinks she ruined everything, but she didn't.

Thursday we stayed in most of the day. Friday we had our last zone conference with President and Sister Holm.

It was heart wrenching. It was a really good one, very bittersweet. They leave on the first of July and President and Sister Turner come on the same day. We don't meet President Turner until July 3rd. I'm excited, but sad at the same time. 

That night we stayed in because Sister Christensen didn't feel good at all. However, I went out to an appointment with Sister Millett. Sister Canaan also didn't feel good and we couldn't get a hold of anyone to cancel their appointment. So Sister Millett and I went on emergency exchanges... Which is mostly frowned upon... oops... Never realized how important that rule was...

At the urgent care...
Saturday we went to the urgent care in Lexington for a few hours. Sister Christensen had to get a steroid shot and an anti-biotic. Turns out she has bronchitis and a sinus infection. Combined with her super bad asthma it wasn't very good. She is still not feeling too great, but getting better.

So, transfers are next Wednesday and guess what? I'm not getting transferred, but something big is happening. Sister Millett is getting transferred. I will be in a trio with Sister Canaan and Sister Christensen. Our areas will be combined. So that's a big change. We will all probably weep when Sister Millett leaves. I will miss her. I never knew how much and how often you have to say goodbye to people you love on a mission. But it happens quite frequently.

Good news: Sammy came to Book of Mormon class finally! And we taught this guy named Tyrrell who is so prepared and ready to receive the Gospel. We taught him the restoration and when I said Joseph Smith's first vision the spirit was obvious. He said he felt calm and peaceful.

Something I am learning is the different ways the Holy Ghost speaks to each of us. Some people get that warm, fuzzy feeling. Others just feel calm. Others just have sudden increase of knowledge. It is a challenge to figure out what way you are spoken to. And it is always an ongoing thing. We must always live worthy- in our hearts and in our actions- to be led by the Holy Ghost. It is hard work. But it is worth it. There is a great article in this month's ensign. I think it is called receiving revelation by Elder Richard Scott. Check it out, k? Just do your best to do the right thing. Everything else will work out.

I love y'all. Have a good week!

Love, Sister Broadbent.  :)
