Transfers today

So, just as a preface to the below, in Aubree’s mission, they are told about transfers and whether or not they are changing areas on Sunday evenings and then prepare to leave on Mondays and find out where they are moving to and make their transfers on Tuesdays.  So the first email is her normal Monday email.  She found out that she was being transferred but still didn’t know where.  The second email is an update once she arrived in her new area.

Hello!!

So my time in Northville is over. I’m gonna miss it soooo much! I could have stayed here my whole mission and been fine with it. But I’m excited to meet new people and see new things.

So miracles that happened this week/reasons I don’t want to leave:

-So on Sister Goodman’s very first day out in the mission field she went tracting in Northville. It was right after she got off the plane so that day is kinda hard to forget cuz everything is so new. Well anyway there’s this lady that she had thought about every now and then while she’s been out. She was the first person she had actually talked to so it was kinda exciting. So then one day we were picking a street to tract and she was like that sounds familiar. So we tracted it but didn’t find the exact right street. So then she called the sister who took her tracting that first night to see if she had her address. And she did! So we went to her house and taught her and her daughter the Plan of Salvation! We also found out that she has another daughter in Detroit who is an active member. Also her husband just died earlier this month. It was super cool!

-There is this less-active lady who is labeled a do not contact. Usually we just contact them about once a year to make sure they really don’t want to be contacted by the church. Well this lady, I have never been able to get in contact with in the last four months. So on Friday we had a little extra time so we decided to just try to knock on her door. She answered. And she invited us in! We had a super good discussion and lesson with her and hopefully she’ll come back to church. (Not that I’ll know cuz I’m being transferred) (I’m not bitter…). She is really sweet and so awesome! I’m not sure why she is a do not contact…

Oh guess what!!! I met the mexican version of Bob! HAHAHAHAHAHA. He’s in our ward. Well in our ward boundaries. He serves in the Detroit River branch cuz he speaks spanish. He is just like him though.

Gotta run. Love you all!

Love, Sister Watko

Email #2 – Tues. Feb. 25, 2014

Hey hey!! 

So I’m in Grand Blanc. Funny story:
So when I got to Michigan Sister Moreno (my MTC companion) got called here with Sister Goodman as her trainer. Then last transfer Sister Goodman came to Northville to be my companion. And Sister Moreno’s companion was Sister Sorensen who was Sister Goodman’s MTC companion. Well Sister Moreno got transferred and I got transferred into Grand Blanc so now my companion is now Sister Sorensen. Weird huh? Now we’ve all been companions :). 
 
My new address: 11301 Grand Oak Drive apt. 10
Grand Blanc, MI 48439.
 
I’m really excited to be here! Last night and this morning were really hard but I did sign up for this so I just have to deal with it I guess. I’ll miss my Northville but I’m excited to work in Grand Blanc. I’m choosing to look forward instead of in the past. 
 
Hope everyone is doing well. I love you!!!!
Love, Sister Watko 🙂
