Last. Crazy. Week.

At about 10 at night I got an email from Sister Martin, unfortunately I didn't check my email until midnight but I got this email...

                         My mission president gave me permission to email right now and I sent
 an email to mom, but I don't know if she is awake or not..... Will you let her know that I have emailed and to check it? Thanks! I love you. Email me when you get this. I have maybe 5 minutes.

And then during the regular scheduled Monday Pday time, this was sent out.

                          Hello, so this week has been crazy. On Thursday, we got a call from President Samuelian during our daily planning session. He told me that he felt prompted to look at the departing missionaries for the next two months and he noticed that my date to leave was in the middle of the transfer. So he called and told me to think and pray about going home in 5 days or 47 days. Well after a sleepless night, I received the answer to go home. Things have been crazy but good since then. Sister Ure will be teaching a new missionary here in Willamina! I will be home in 2 days. 
We have seen so many miracles since then. I know that my father in heaven is so aware of me. I am grateful for all that He has given me, especially my family. You have all been so supportive of me. Thank you so much. I love you! See you on Wednesday!

Finally words this week! -Stacy

We went to go contact a referral given to us by other missionaries and we couldn't find the address. We stopped at a house and a couple looks the address up on the computer and they couldn't even find it, but they found a similar address. We went there and talked to a little boy who didn't know the guy we were looking for. How mom came out and didn't know him either. She asked what church we went to and we told her that we are missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She said her husband was a member, so he came out and we talked to him. He gave us information to get his records transferred into the Ward and he is going to let us practice teaching the lessons on his family! No one is a member but him and they have 5 kids. We are so excited to teach them. I love you all!

Literally my favorite picture!!! #shockedface
Let's call it "Act-like-you-just-got-your-mission-call!"
Not sure if this is appropriate to say, but I'm going to say it anyway..... "#photobomb."
(That was it.)



Trying to be a Sister Martin. ;)

Most likely the BEST picture in this email!!
