So, this week we felt that three Sister missionaries in a companionship wasn't enough. And President Stoker must have agreed, so he gave us a fourth missionary! Haha :)
Sister Reeder just joined us this past week so that she can work in the mission office for a bit, and it has given each of us the opportunity to be an office missionary with her every third day. We really are a foursome companionship since we rotate companions, not just two companions. :)
It is also super fun that Sister Reeder joined us because she is finishing up the “12 week Training” this transfer (this is the training program that missionaries go through during their first two transfers) which means we all get to take turns doing the “12 week Training” again. :) It has seriously been such a party getting to know one another and making use of having an extra companionship by having two schedules each day and accomplishing a lot more than usual.
**also note how she signed her blog today! :D
We've also decided that since there is four of us, we are a Quad (like the scriptures/standard works) – [I am the Old Testament (since I've been there the longest), Sister Reeder is the New Testament (since she is the newest), Sister Danner is the Book of Mormon (since she confirms truths I share), and Sister Cannell is the Doctrine and Covenants (since she has added extra revelation)].
Something else that was fun was that we had exchanges with our Sister Training Leader, Sister Burton (my old companion!). She came here to replace Sister Danner, but Sister Reeder, Cannell, and I stayed in Bedford. We decided it would be best to make two companionships by having Sister Reeder and I go out together and Sister Burton and Cannell go out together. It was tons of fun, but we made sure we had all of our meals at the same time so that we'd still see everyone in our giant companionship haha :).
Those are the main highlights of the week, and I really look forward to this next week with Zone Conference coming up :).
