Of to Lubbock I Go

All right, so this week was a week of crazy. I can't even remember it all and I forgot to take good notes, so....I'm a heathen.

But! To make it short, we had a baptism with Andrea and Audri (see adorable pics below), Halloween was a bust, the primary program was great, and I'm now in Lubbock with Sis. Tracy and Sis. Lao (see pics). I've been here less than 24 hours and I'm already pretty sure they're two of the coolest people on the planet.

Interesting stories...well, last Thursday was a blast - Sis. McGregor and I checked out all these awesome antique shops in downtown Clovis (if you ever want to find good antiques, go to Clovis. It's wicked cool) and test drove the new Hyundai Veloster. I kept calling it the "Velociraptor," because, let's be honest, it sounds better. Now, I don't know if we're supposed to go test driving cars, but we did it and it turns out our salesman was a less active member from Salt Lake who hadn't been to church in years! Wasn't even on our ward list. Talk about convenient. We gave him the address, time, and our number, so hopefully we'll hear from him.

The baptism was really amazing - I really felt the spirit when those two went under the water. Gotta love it. The ward really turned out for them (they also helped them move earlier that day when we just barely told them about it the day before - a-mazing!). The people in Clovis are just golden, I declare. I wish I could take them all with me. The Harts, especially, are great. We do our wash at their house on Fridays and they help us out a ton the rest of the week. Br. Hart's family is actually in the northwest like Boise and Tri-cities, like, I don't know, the Haueters. You make such fun connections on your mission.

So, this week has been interesting so far as I've been ET'd ("emergency transfer"-ed) to Lubbock. About 7 of us sisters met in this little town called Tatum between Hobbes, Clovis, and Lubbock and played "Who's Your New Companion?" in this tiny restaurant called, ironically enough, Tiny's. They only take cash. Yeah. So now I'm with Sis. Lao and Sis. Tracy and we're all just having a grand ol' P-Day. It's really interesting being with other missionaries and seeing how they do things, especially when I've only been out a month with one companion with no one nearby. You think there's one way to do things, but that just shows you how limited we are. There isn't *grin*.

Anyways, I've got to go, but I love you all!
