Week 60 in the field!


But also full of craziness.

Let's get the big news out of the way... I GOT TRANSFERRED. It was really sad because I love Mt. Pleasant with all of my heart. It's been incredible here. But I know it's time to move on, and if I'm going to move on, it might as well be to the coolest place ever! Are you ready for this? I'm going to Cadillac! 

Cadillac is in the Traverse City zone, which is super far north so it has no sisters in it and hasn't had sisters in AGES (if ever!). Well, the new mission president decided he wants to send sisters up north, so he's sending Sister Young (my new companion!) and I up there to try it out and to get it started. Sister Young and I are both being released as STLs so that we can devote all our time to going crazy in this new area! 

All these sister missionaries have been emailing me today in shock because we never thought sisters would be in Traverse City zone! It's really exciting. It's every sister's dream to serve up north, but it's a dream that we never expected to actually come true! I know this sounds really silly, but here in the Michigan Lansing Mission this is really exciting, okay?! Hooray!

Also, more very exciting news is that DAMIEN GOT BAPTIZED THIS WEEK! He was so happy and his family came, too! It was the best. (Here's Damien, me, and Sister Oswald)
I also got to reunite with Sister Pyper which was AMAZING! 

Hmm, other news... Oh! We got typewriters this week for free! Don't judge my messy desk. Isn't it cool though? You can see Sister Oswald's on the right, as well!
I was sad to leave Mt. Pleasant, but snagged a picture with Bishop Peless before I left! He has been the best bishop I've had on my mission! He's awesome.
The Mt. Pleasant missionaries! #NeverForget. My favorite part of this picture is the awkward "elder-sister-gap" that always ends up in every picture where elders and sisters stand next to each other. No touching! Haha it makes for lots of awkward poses.

Campus has been amazing. I will miss CMU so much. The wonderful thing about being a missionary on a campus, is that you basically get to make a lot of best friends that you end up sharing the gospel with. It is the best thing in the world. But it also makes it really hard to say goodbye! The people we teach are our investigators, but they're also like our best friends! It's okay though. Onward and upward!
I love you all!

<3 Sister Christiansen
