A Filling and a Transfer

Standard

Priel’s had a decently significant week. Monday, they did dart wars again, and Priel won a round! Tuesday was a slow proselyting day, kind of frustrating.

Wednesday, though, Priel had an emergency dentist appointment for a very painful tooth. She didn’t have any cavities (which, as she said, surprises her because of her constant Dr. Pepper consumption), but there was a filling that had been done very badly by her previous dentist and was hurting the nerve. So they had to redo that filling for her and she still might lose the tooth, depending. So she spent the rest of the day drooling and a little annoyed.

Thursday was full of meetings — zone, service, and the mission president — and it was a good day. Friday, in between lessons, Priel got to go get pizza twice, which was fun. Once was with the elders. Priel says, “The Elders were just like my brothers and we were all just best friends. I’ll miss them a lot, especially Elder Stark. Elder Stark and I were in the same district for about 10 months, so he and I have gotten really close. He’s going zone leader this transfer, and this will be the first transfer in a long time that we won’t be in the same district. Bah, it’s going to be hard!”

Saturday, Sheri Dew talked to all the Relief Society, whch Priel loved loved loved. Then they got transfer calls — and Priel has been transferred by to her old area. She’s kind of sad, but she’ll have lots of new stories to tell! Her new companion is from Samoa, the first one from out of the US, and her name is Sister Tauiliili. She says the missionaries in that zone have (rumoredly) gotten out of hand so she’s proud to be able to go back there and bring more obedience in, haha.

Then they had a baptism, for Zach, which was super happy. He managed even though his family doesn’t support it. But he’s scared of water, so he basically ran out of the font as soon as he got baptized, haha. Priel says he’s bound to go far.

Sunday, Priel said her goodbyes, and cried basically the whole day. This has been her favorite area and she’ll really miss everyone! But she’s invited to one more dinner with her previous companion, so there’s that.

In lessons this week, they taught Jerry, who gave a prayer in front of them for the first time. Priel’s very hopeful for his prospects. They also talked to a less active member who was friendly, but currently goes to a big-time anti-Mormon church in the area.

Yeah! That’s the big news this week. See you again next time!
