Hola friends and family!!!
What a week! So basically all of the day’s run together and I never
remember what happened when….good thing we have a planner to help us
out with that, right?! (:
On Tuesday we had a lesson with a new investigator who is a member
referral!! Whoot!! The investigators name is R…, and she is just
looking for some spiritual upliftment in her life. So we gave her a
Book of Mormon and helped her understand that it will help her so much
and uplift her. She is great!!
Missionary Social Media
It is fun to message and read posts from other missionary moms & dads and members in my missionary’s areas. Here are some links that I have found interesting and fun:
Private/Secret or Closed Facebook Groups (means you have to be invited and accept the invitation to join the group):

Hello family and friends!!! What a crazy week it has been!!!!
So last Tuesday we went to transfer meeting and they went through
their little presentation of announcing everyone that is being
transferred and who their new companion is! So they get to me and my
picture shows up on the screen so I go out to the middle and they put
my new companions picture up and………she’s not there!!! The
assistants look at each other and announce that she must be on her way
still. Haha okay, no big deal. So we go through the rest of transfers
and afterwards everyone is saying goodbye and President Anderson (our
mission president) comes over to me and says, “Sister Gomm, I am so
sorry, there was some confusion with your new companion so she was not
informed that she was being transferred. She was in a trio this past
transfer and thought she was staying, but she knows now and is packing
her stuff, she will be here later today.” HAHAHA!!!!!!!! What?? Nobody
told my companion she was being transferred?! Too funny. So I hung out
in Broomall for hours until my new companion got there. The assistants
apologized to me like eighty times and they invited me to go to the
trainers meeting for the missionaries who just got their goldens this
transfer. It was a really great meeting and I learned a lot even
though I’m not training! So FINALLY my companion makes it to Broomall
at like 4:30 pm! (We left that morning for Broomall at 8:30ish). And I
love her!!!!! Her name is Sister Ipson! She is so great!!!
On Saturday Sister Ipson and I went and stopped by one of our
investigators, A…, the one who said she wouldn’t come to church
when we had asked her if she would. Oh man, she is hilarious! We
showed her Because of Him and she LOVED it! We gave her a plan of
salvation pamphlet and asked her to read it so we could talk about it
when we go over on Tuesday! We’re taking baby steps with her, but
we’ll see how it goes! So after meeting with A…, we headed over
to L… house. L… is the one we invited to be baptized my first
week here. We dropped her a few weeks ago because we could never get
in to meet with her. So we knock on the door and her son answers, (as
usual) we ask if his mom is there and he tells us to wait a second and
he’ll go get her. (Usually at this point he comes back and tells us to
just come back later). So we wait while he goes and gets her..and L…
comes to the door! Whoot! So we talk with her and introduce Sister
Ipson and we ask if we can come in right then. She said she was super
busy but that she wants us to come over on Tuesday! Okay whoo! Then
she’s all, “I’ve been reading the Book of Mormon you gave me and I
really want you to come back so we can talk about it.” What?! She’s
been reading the Book of Mormon!!!!!! I’m seriously praying and
praying that we will be able to meet with her tomorrow!!!
Hello family and friends!!!!
I feel like every week I say that this week was a crazy
week……..but………this week was a crazy week! So first of all,
my district is AMAZING. Sister Johnstone and I are the only sisters in
the district, but it is SO fun.
Mom!!!! I am so mad!! I had a super great super spiritual email ALL
typed out, and it was seriously a novel long! I typed it all out while
on the train ride home from philly and I lost the whole thing!!! I’m
seriously so mad. I promise I will have a good email next week though!
I love you!!
