Well, we got our transfers this week! I'm staying in Jyväskylä! I'm actually really grateful because I really didn't want to pack up and move a week before Christmas, but I'm sad because Sisar Dayton is leaving me. We've been together 4 months now and she's off to Lahti to serve with another sister! My new companion is Sisar Lund. I've never met her and I don't know a lot about her but I do know she's been serving up in Kuopio with Sisar Dayton's former companion and before that she was in Espoo so she's been out longer than me so I'm excited to meet her tomorrow!
Well, our transfers are 9 weeks long (most missions are 6) So I'm pretty much guaranteed to be in Jyväskylä for the next 2 months (mid February ish are our next transfers) So it looks like I won't have to be too for north for the winter! (Apparently "the winter" comes in January and February so this is nothing...) Anyway, so my address and everything stayed the same so I should still get any mail sent to me fine.
Our District leader is going home and another sister here in Jyväskylä is going to Helsinki so there are lots of changes! I'll let you all know about it next week when I actually meet them all!So Sisar Dayton and I knew this week was probably going to be our last week together so we, of course, had to try some of the cool places we've been wanting to try. Namely The Classic American Diner. haha what a fun experience! We got a nice good ol' American Hamburger and fries (I won't tell you how much it cost...) but it was so worth it and totally the most American thing I've had since being here (pictures included).
Well, I'm out of time again! Just wanted to say thanks for all the great emails! I loved them! It was so fun to see pictures of the Christmas train and the program and everything! Have a wonderful week and I can't wait to skype you all next Wednesday! (p.s. I'll call around 6 or 7 Finland time) Okay, I love you all! Have a great week!
