CRM for life!

Good Afternoon!
What a crazy week!! My week at a glance.....

Monday: P-day! Transfer p-day.....sad! As soon as I get close to these missionaries...they get transferred. They truly become family and best friends! It was sad to see them leave and to know that I will never serve around them as missionaries again. I'm proud of them all! There is some amazing missionaries in this mission! 
I also received an email from my mom that my Grandpa wasn't doing well and that he would probably pass away this week. I was shocked. It shocked me that just 30 minutes before I received mom's email I was bearing my testimony of the Plan ofSalvation to one of my best friends on my mission. Thank goodness for a wonderful friend, Sister Rawlins! I just went out in the hall and cried! Poor girl....didn't know what to do! And I was fine with that! After that I was fine! 
Monday night crazy! We got spotlighted by a helicopter!! Ya!! (I will save the story for when I get home;)) 
Sister Taylor came and spent the night with us and it was so fun to talk and catch up on life! 

Tuesday: Service at Sister Ortegas! Member visits! District Lunch for the last time with "my kids"! 

Wednesday: Helped out at the mission office for Transfers! Got to see so many of the gang! Sister Soliai, Elder Avery, and Elder Gentry!! 

Thursday: District Meeting! Sister Mackay kicked some but during practice teach this week! YAAA that's my girl!!😀 

Friday: Weekly Planning!! We decided to mix it up this week....go a little crazy;)....and plan in the mothers lounge! At the end of planning I received a call from President Marston. I knew what it was about, I was relieved, I was sad, but more than anything I was comforted. I never would have thought that I would loose 2 family members and multiple close friends while on my mission. Heavenly Father has definitely been preparing me for this moment my entire mission. There is nothing that I have a stronger testimony about than the Plan of Salvation. I know that He is in a better place! 
Friday night we had a wonderful time at the ward BBQ!

Saturday: We went out working our butts off trying to find some people to teach! We ended up dropping the 2 investigators we had...BUT God is good and gave us 2 new ones....ones that WANT this gospel, that call us to come over! You know that quote "sometimes we have to give up something good for something better!"? Ya it's true! 
So Saturday night we were at the church and the youth had a dance. We were getting ready to get in our car and this van pulls up and these crazy girls come running out screaming "sister Reber"! I was like what the heck.... Made my night! It was the Milligans from Auburn!! So fun to see them! 

Sunday: Church is always awesome!! There were so many less actives to church this week and to make it better....we had a missionary homecoming and farewell in the ward this week! 

Today: Robin came from Auburn to take us to lunch! It was so good to see her:) 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! I love you! I love this Gospel! I love my Heavenly Father! I love sharing this gospel! Have a wonderful week!!

Last we come

This week has been awesome! We have seen so many miracles this week! Our lessons doubled this week and we look forward to doubling it again next week. I love this work! My little girl and I are staying together this transfer and I will finish training! I have mixed emotions today, first day of my last transfer! Bring it on kids!
Another transfer! So hard to see my friends go!! Half our zone is changing...our family! It's going to be weird! 
Love you all!!

Another Amazing Week!

This week has been great! Actually....AWESOME! We have seen so much success! Our patience I this work has paid off. We hit our goal for lessons this week, found a new investigator, and had an awesome Ward council about missionary work. We were able to attend the temple this week with a member and that was an amazing experience! It was so good to spend some time in the Celestial room with Sister Mackay and do some praying! Heavenly Father is so good! 
Sorry for the short email this week!

Good Week!

Good Morning! 
It's been a good week! We are trying to find new investigators so that's what we have been doing all week. 
I got to see one of my companions. She came back to the mission all the way from Finland! We were able to go out to dinner with her and President & Sister Marston! It was so fun to see her! 
Nothing too exciting this week. 
->Elder Gilger & Elder Draper need your help! They are the missionaries in Gunnison! Help them out! My challenge to my family!! Find one person between the 5 of you, to take the missionary lessons before I get home! 
If you don't know any better go make some new friends. 
Love you all!
