Another week has come and gone, and it was just as crazy as the last! This coming week is my last week with Sister Echols before transfers next week. I am so sad! I love her so much, she really is the greatest! I told her the other day that we need to make this last week count and go out with a bang, then I remembered all that has happened in the time that we have been together, pretty sure it was all a complete adventure!We find out this week where we are going for transfers, and next Wednesday I get my new little trainee! That is not freaking me out at all! Thank heavens I have the lord on my side because there is no way I could make it without Him. Elder Millard, our beloved District Leader is leaving on Wednesday to train for a week and then become Assistant to the President. He is the big man on campus now, we keep telling him that he needs to remember us here in little Uzhgorod! His companion Elder Tribett gets to be the 3rd wheel with the other Elders for a week, that will be interesting!
Then I got to give a talk on families, yup! Cried through the whole thing! Then after I sat down I just felt this overwhelming love for the people in Uzhgorod, I just was so grateful for them, and I love them all so much, they are all absolutely amazing! So I sat in the back and was just crying, feeling the Spirit so strongly, then Elder Millard gets up gives his talk, then closing hymn... God be with you til we meet again, that was a killer! Then Yeva, says the closing prayer and starts crying over Elder Millard. Wow, all of us were in tears by the end of the meeting. It was just a tear jerker there.
I am really sorry for my emails lately, my english has totally gone down hill! I can't even think of some words in english anymore, so I just say them in Ukrainian and everyone here does the same thing. So my emails... I have read through them, they are pretty bad, sorry about that!Wow, I cannot believe that you all killed a goat. That will be fun to report on Tuesday when the Elders ask how our families are. I am jealous that you had a great time at the Ranch, it is okay though, I am in Ukraine and you can't beat this place, especially Uzhgorod! Ah, I forgot to put on my blog email, Sister Echols and I got caught in this HUGE rain storm, soaked all the way to the skin, when we got home our make up was all down our faces, it was so funny! The thunder was so crazy! We were just laughing so hard at ourselves, the videos from it are great! You will have to wait until I get home to see them, or maybe I will send them with Sister Echols.
P.S. just so you know in Ukraine my name is Klarissa ShaughNEssy, it is really funny, they cannot pronounce my name, so I gave up, I am Klarissa ShaughNEssy just like Sister Echols is Camilla Echoes, not Camille Echols. We have a good time changing our names around.
This week was absolutely crazy, but I am don't know that I want any of this to ever end! It is becoming fall here now, and I was just thinking how weird it is that I really have almost been gone for half a year. It doesn't seem like that at all, the weeks just fly bye, I am scared to even think about ever coming home. Even now, I am 9 transfers away from coming home and I think that is just a little too close for comfort I love it here so much and I love the people here.I am terrified because next week I begin training, that is just so scary! Sister Echols is my total crutch, I love her dearly and she always can just pick up and explain for me what I can't or answer things that I can't in Ukrainian,and now it is my turn to be that for someone else. I have a feeling that I will be leaving Uzhgorod to, and I just don't want to. I love these people so very much! I am so blessed!
