Week One on the Alien Planet

Hello my dear family and friends!
This week has been amazing.  There have been a lot of ups and downs, but it’s been great.  The Spirit here is amazing.  I love it!
My companion’s name is Sister Stones.  She is 23.  She’s from Mesa Arizona.  She AWESOME!  Her and I really get along well.  She’s a music, movie, Disney, fiend just like me.  I love it.  I couldn’t have asked for a better one.  She is going the Washington DC South mission, sadly.
My district is so great!  We have 10 people, 6 elders and 4 sisters.  My roommates are Sister Mansfield and Sister Pyle.  They are so awesome and the 4 of us get along so well!  It’s a great time!
Our distric leader’s name is Elder Day.  He’s really great.  On the first day, we were speculating about which elder would be the DL.  I called it.  I was like “Elder Day is.  He just has the Spirit radiating from him.”  And it’s so true.  Every time he opens his mouth, something amazing comes out.
EVERY SINGLE PERSON in our district feels like we knew each other before we came here.  We honestly feel like we must have been buds in the pre-existance.  We just know each other and help each other and get along so well.
Our teachers’ names are Brother Pickett and Brother McQuay.  They are both incredible teachers!  I love them!  I learn so much every single time I have class.  This experience is amazing so far.
I will admit, I have had ups and downs.  There are times during the day when I just feel like “How can I do this?  This is so hard.”  But then I pray and ask for help and everything gets a lot  better.
I know that this gospel is SO true!!!  I cannot wait to go to Canada and teach it!! (once I figure out HOW to teach… hahaha)
I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!
Love always,
Sister Arbon
