Staying in Allatoona

Allatoona Lake after dinner with Amber and her family on Tuesday night

Well, hello there!

This week, Sister Evans and I have been working really hard to try to talk to lots of people and teach lots of people too! Looking back at our week, most of it was green (we put our schedule and daily plans in what is called the Area Book App, which is super nifty and basically contains everything we, as missionaries, need in order to do our work in an organized fashion), meaning that we spent a lot of time finding. Amber continues to be awesome, but we are sad that she will be out of town for a bit this month to go visit family, so we won't be able to see her as much. Hopefully her adventures won't slow her down in her progression in the gospel, though.

Part of the fun this week was the weather, which was actually pretty mild due to some pretty intense rain and thunderstorms throughout the week. Also, I have learned that when it rains in Georgia, it doesn't just sprinkle, it completely flash-floods. Overall, it is awesome, but also a little bit scary when you are driving and within a few seconds you go from sprinkles to a deluge of water on your windshield. Fun stuff!

The big news of the week is that I am staying in Allatoona for another transfer (6 weeks) with Sister Evans. The even bigger news is that we will now be spending about half of our time on bike because we have been asked to share our car with the Elders in our area. Why now? (That is what I asked myself when we found this out last night/this morning) Because our neighbor ward, Woodstock, is getting Sisters! It should be an interesting summer, but with the Lord's help, we will survive. Feel free to pray for cool weather in Georgia and that the drivers will be aware of their surroundings.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
