A busy week....Letter dated Aug 7, 2013


I survived the jungle!! The weather is much, much cooler this week! It's kinda nice, but I don't like being cold. I guess I can't have it all, eh? ;)

I have been a very busy Sister this week! Although, I feel like none of it has been anything really towards finding investigators :( But it's all things that HAD to be done... It's an eternal internal battle. Oh, well. It's been a good week though!

Friday I was in meetings all day (from 10 to 4)! Then Saturday we had to do weekly planning and we had Visitors Center shift. Then Sunday we had church and other meetings, then spent like 3 hours talking to people out on the streets! That was cool. It's always fun to meet people. Monday we had zone training, some time to practice for Night of Music and Inspiration (I'm singing again... I don't know why people ask me to sing. I don't sing! But oh well. Sister Jorgensen is singing with me so it's fine, I guess.) Then 3 lessons with less active members of our ward. Tuesday we had full studies and Visitors Center shift. And between that, I got pulled into a trainers meeting at the Visitors Center. (My poor companions have to put up with me.) 

And then today we had another private tour of the Capitol, but this time with Jocelyn! It was the best tour ever :) I don't want her to go back to Idaho :( Also, President Cooke's daughters (Carolyn and Elizabeth) came to the city with us! They are so cool! I love them so much!
The group! The 2 girls with us are the Cooke's daughters, Carolyn (the brunette) and Elizabeth (the blonde). Love them!
  I loved the speakers balcony...

Out on the speakers balcony!

But unfortunately, that was our week. We don't have any investigators still :( I'm really ready to start teaching again! But I guess Heavenly Father wants me to learn patience this transfer. Patience, and the ability to rely on my Savior and just to place everything in His hands. I literally can't do this alone, so He's going to be the reason I survive this transfer. Well, Him, and my companions. I love them so much!! I have the best companions in the world! We get along so well and laugh all the time. We've filled 3 (almost 3 1/2) pages in our quote notebook already :) They make this drought so much more bearable! I'm so grateful for them! I just wish they had investigators to teach...

So, I've gotten some questions about exchanges! I would love to tell you about them! I go on 8ish exchanges per transfer. They are whenever I schedule them to be, so they don't all happen at once. We (as Visitors Center trainers) go on exchanges with the sisters so we can help with transfers. On exchanges, we find out what the sister we're with could need for the next transfer, then we can bring that to the meeting where we put new companionship's together! It's kind of cool, but very hectic and a little intimidating to me. But, the Lord knows what He's doing, right? I still love working with President and Sister Cooke! They are great! I talk to them so much more than I ever thought I would. They have put so much trust in me it's kind of scary! But since I'm a Visitors Center trainer I see him all the time. He's new, I'm new and so we're both trying to figure some things out together. It's cool. Plus, he is SO concerned with all of his missionaries happiness and well-being! It's adorable! He has me call him once a week just to tell him how I'm doing. Thoughtful, eh? 

Oh, by the way, mail is back to normal. Just a fluke :) No worries!
Anyway, this is a really boring email. I'm sorry. Just know that I love you and miss you and I love the work I'm doing (or trying to do). The Lord is so aware of us, it's amazing! Hopefully I'll have more to report on next week! Thank you for your love and support :) I'll see you sooner than you think! (Weird.)
Love, Sister Bullock
Had to

My companions and I at the city last week!

I love them!
 In the sculpture garden downtown, there is a wishing tree... So we put our wishes up!

  A wish I found on the wishing tree :)

Kelsey Temple. That's right, I have my own temple.
