Dear Family,It has been an interesting week, I actually like the weather here and I am cold a lot of the time especially in our sketchy apartment.... We are "white-washing" a new area, so we have to start completely from scratch. There are no records or anything, they have never had sisters here before. The flight was so cool, I wasn't scared at all and it was fun! I can just sit in a chair 37,000 feet in the sky and take a nap. This world is amazing. The mission President and his wife President and Sister Wolfert are amazing they are kind and really good people. It has been a pretty long hard week. Since we are starting over we tract everyday all the time and visit members to get referral and ideas of places to go since we have absolutely no idea. We are in the Athens 2nd ward and the members are amazing. They are so kind and do so much to help us. The ward mission leader is a lot of help as well. Our area is spread across 3 different towns Athens, Bishop and Watkinsville (where our sketchy apartment is). I love my yellow bike even more than I did in the picture, we have a car as well since our area is pretty big so we use both quite a bit. I like riding it, except up hills or in the dark... :) My companion and trainer is Sister Parker she is blonde and 5' 1" .
I am so glad Miriam loves her dresses I bet she looks gorgeous in them and I can't wait to see a picture. She is a cutie patootie! (I am making two costumes for Miriam for the school play she is in)
Thank you so much for the package I got all my things, they were waiting for me and I loved the treats!! A LOT! I had to do a few days without a pillow but that situation is solved. They don't have blankets or sheets so it is a good thing you sent them and I brought one or I would have just had to have gone and bought one.
I am so grateful for you prayers and everything else that you do for me it is a great blessing and help and I hope that you all know how much I love and appreciate you and all you do, you are amazing.
Peace and Blessing and you are always in my prayersLove Rach (Sister Weeks) :)
