This coming Saturday is transfer calls. We have no idea what will happen, we could both stay or leave.
We went on exchanges this week so I got to go to Bend! It's a pretty cool place. Sister Griffin and I went tracting. We got out of the car and I put my really heavy pink water bottle in my bag and she said "Sister Martin, do you need your water bottle?" and I said, "yes, I might get thirsty." 20 minutes later, we knocked on this door and a guy answered. He was very nice and said he grew up a Jehovah's witness and they went door to door and he then offered us water. We had an amazing conversation with him about the gospel and we set up a return appointment. It was great!
I promised Sister Griffin that I would go back to Redmond and open my mouth. That is something that Sister Spencer and I are still working on.
I gave a talk in Sacrament meeting based on Matthew 4:18-23. It was very intimidating because for once, I did not write my talk out. I took my scriptures and spoke by the Spirit. I need to practice trusting in the Holy Ghost more. [D&C 84:85] [D&C 38:30]
We got to attend relief society in the other ward and it was about dutch oven cooking! It was awesome! I can't wait to go home and practice!

Matthew 4:18-2318 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
