Bennington. It Just Sounds So Fancy.

Transfer week is always crazy. On Tuesday morning I found out that I am  being transferred to the Bennington area with Sister Hutchison! I am so sad to be leaving Ralston. I was able to get so close to so many of the people and it is always so hard to say good bye. I am especially so sad that I won't be able to teach Eli and Christine. I was able to see so many miracles with them and it has one of the most incredible experiences to see them progress and change so much. I feel so grateful that I have been able to be a part of their journey. Don't worry, President Gardner said that I would be able to go to their baptism on the 25th. (5 days, but who's counting?) I am going to miss Ralston so much, but I'm excited to see what Bennington has in store.

It's been about 100 degrees with 75% humidity every day for the past week, so that makes tracting very interesting. On Friday we tried a less active member and found him outside of his house with two other men and they were smoking and drinking. We thought it might turn into a sketchy situation, but we tried talking to them anyway. They started off by asking us what we believe and we ended up teaching them the Restoration, but they kept interrupting and tried convincing us that we were wrong. It was a little bit of a Bible bash, but it was actually a really cool experience because as I was testifying, I could feel the Spirit so strong and their demeanor changed as we bore our testimonies of what we knew to be true. They got a little bit sassy in the middle, but ended up softening up a bit so we left them with some #hallelujah cards and left. We had talked with them for about an hour and could feel sweat forming our clothes to our bodies, so we rewarded ourselves with frozen lemonades at Sonic. It was great.

We have already been able to see so many miracles here in Bennington. We have found a few new potential investigators and one of them even came to church on Sunday! Her name is Emma and is a good friends with a member named Emily in the ward. We are meeting with them this week and are so excited to see what happens. I can already tell that this is going to be a transfer to remember.
 Some of my favorite Ralston people.

 Some of my other favorite Ralston people. Good-byes are the worst.

 Meet Sister Hutchison!

 And then there was Sister Firth...

 Our frozen lemonades. Totally worth it.
