And Then There Were 2

This week. Oh, wow. What a week. It was a good week, but a crazy stressful week.

Regarding transfers: There are more sisters leaving than there are coming out, so they are having to close a bunch of sister areas. The sisters that we live with, who are in the Surfside Ward, are having their area closed down. Sister Belyea and Sister Peatross are going home. So, they are just having Sister McNeece come to the Myrtle Beach Ward. AKA my ward. She will be my new companion. We will just move her across the hall. Our apartment is going to be HUGE with just us two. We will probably be weeping as our companions leave us... Transfers can be a sad time in the life of a missionary.

We drove around with a bunch of crazy people in the car this week, too. God sure looks out for the missionaries! There were many times I thought we were going to get in a wreck and die... Yep... Probably won't get rides from them anymore...

In other news... CORNEL GOT BAPTIZED!! It's a pretty big deal, y'all. This isn't Utah where everybody and their dog gets baptized by the proper authority. It was great. It was sort of crazy leading up to it. Everybody was late and we weren't sure if it was going to happen. But it all worked out. And the Spirit was there. It just went great! His girlfriend (who lives in New York and introduced him to the Gospel) came down to be at his baptism. He almost missed church on Sunday for his confirmation. His moped wouldn't start. Luckily, we have the greatest senior couple in our ward, so Elder Albrecht went and got him. Take that Satan! So, the newest member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Myrtle Beach ward is Cornel Radcliffe! :)

Chief came to the Christmas party and surprised us. He is telling all his Mormon friends he is joining the church. I am excited to continue teaching him.

It's so neat to be going crazy because you have no idea what is going on/ everything seems to be falling apart, but then Heavenly Father just puts it all together so perfectly. I think it is so cool to see how he works with and through imperfect people. I know that when we do the best we can, though our efforts are imperfect, God will make whatever needs to happen, happen.

I love y'all! Christmas is coming soon! If you haven't watched the new Christmas video, watch it now. It's short and it's all about the first gift- Jesus Christ. It can be found on christmas.mormon.org. Check it out, and share it with your friends and family.

Peace and Blessings! :)

Love, Sister Broadbent
