I can't believe this day has actually come! I almost forgot that Detroit was only a temporary assignment. Detroit and Ann Arbor has truly become my home! Today so far has been crazy, and I don't have too much time, but I'll try and tell you as much as I can.
So President called me on Tuesday Night and told me that I leave today. I was prepared and bought some Sparkling Cider for when he would call me, but he called me at like.... 10:30 and I was already asleep for 45 minutes, but I woke up because I knew what it was about. So we saved the sparkling cider for breakfast haha.
The next day we had Zone Conference, so that was that. It was really good. Got to say bye to the people in the zone!
On Thursday, we went to the temple. It was great. As always. I don't know if you've been back since I've gone to the temple, but you should go if you haven't. It's pretty awesome.
On Friday.... we had friday forum and weekly planning which took up the entire day.
Saturday, we met with Sam, the Egyptian. We showed him the general confrerence talk by President Uchtdorf. Then we got him on date. It was pretty awesome. Then we went contacting in a blizzard, but miraculously got 3 potential investigators from it.
Yesterday. We went to church and went contacting afterwards. It was really cold. We went as long as we could and then couldn't feel our limbs, so we went home so I could finish packing!
Today, I thought I was going to have until 4 to do all my P-Day fun with my favorite missionaries, but got a call saying that they'll be picking me up around 1 so I'm really sad, because we were going to have a snowball fight on campus and tear it up. But it looks like I won't be there to do that, so I'm a little sad. But they're coming to say goodbye to me, so that's good. I feel kind of bad because one of the Elders, Elder Brooks, came out with me, and we pretty much cover the same area, so he'll be coming to say bye but still no news on his visa. I'll be going with my mtc companion to the airport. Our flight leaves at 8. I don't think I'll be able to call, but if you do get a phone call from a mysterious number, feel free to pick up because it might be me. If not, I'll talk to you next week for Christmas! :)
Sorry I don't have a lot of time. TOday is crazy, so I'm doing as much as I can before I gotta go.
Love you lots. Tell angelee i say happy birthday!
Love, Sister marshall
