Hello all of you that recently tuned in to my emails because things just got interesting.
This week I felt like I should hand in my name tag because I did not feel like I was on a mission haha. Monday was Sister Turvey's birthday so when they got home from the mission office, we ordered Indian takeout and celebrated with birthday cake and we found out so many things about President and Sister Turvey. Did you know she was a herbal tea bag for Halloween one year? Hahaha.
Tuesday we went and stamped like 500 Book of Mormons at the mission office and then came home and I played the piano for Sister Turvey and then President came and played us a few songs. Sometimes he'll play a little in the morning and he's SO GOOD I love it when he plays. They also have a guitar I play sometimes. Each night we do family prayers and all kneel in a circle and say a nightly prayer together it's so cute. 😊 They're like our mission mom and dad. The other night actually we got home from zone conference before they did and when they came in the door Sister Turvey shouts, "Mum and Dad are home!" Hahah.
Wednesday was just weird. We went and worked at the mission office for a few hours and hung out with the AP's and then we ordered pizza and when the pizza guy came, he asked for a Bible and we gave him a Book of Mormon and got his details to give to the missionaries serving in Leeds. HOW COOL IS THAT. Then we went home and the Turvey's had to go to Hull and they were staying the night in Billingham so we house sat for them. It was so weird haha we got home at like 4 and then just got in our pajamas, watched a movie, did some painting, wrapped some Christmas presents, and made ourselves some tea and then went to bed.
Thursday was zone conference and then we came home and did some painting and then went grocery shopping with Sister Turvey which was the most hilarious thing because she gets soo distracted looking at clothes and Christmas decorations. I told her that she's the kind of person that people like me who work in gift shops hate because she went through and turned on all the dancing and singing stuffed animals at once and I was like.. 😑😂
Friday was D-Day. The four of us sat in Presidents office and decided what the plans were going to be from here on out. We decided we'd make the decision on Monday. 😂 Depending on how things go, we'll either go back to Bishop Auckland or we'll move to Leeds and stay in a four-man flat with two other sisters, one who's had anxiety before which I think is the best option but we'll see.
Saturday we had lunch at the mission home and the AP's came and then the Turvey's left to Hull and weren't coming back until Sunday evening so we got back in our pajamas, turned on a movie, and then wrapped Christmas presents and put labels on Christmas cards. And then for some reason a whole bunch of fireworks went off so we watched those and then went to bed.
Sunday we went to church with Elder and Sister Hayden to Bradford and it was hilarious how literally EVERYONE asked us if they were getting sister missionaries in the ward and then when we told them we were just visiting they were devastated. Sister Turvey told us that we should have told them only the most righteous wards get sister missionaries. 👼🏼
Well, this has been the most unproductive week of my life but it has also been a really fun week and as long as I'm still with Sister Savelio, I'm happy. Please continue to keep her in your prayers and I'll let ya know what happens next week!
Hahah she was so done wrapping presents
