Bonjour Ma Famille,
Not much time, but I'll update you…"Soeur Hulme, are you tired of training?" Dang it, that's not what I wanted to hear over the phone transfer call morning. Not only has my lovely run as a trainer come to an end, I have also left my beautiful ville of Besancon. I am currently writing you from Bordeaux, the second biggest city in the mission and on the completely other end of the country...hence me writing this a day late (as I was traveling for 12 hours yesterday). But, the city is beautiful and I had been hoping to serve here for a while now. My new companion is Soeur Stevens, she is wonderful. She's 23, is from California, studies phychology at BYU, and loves volleyball. I'm super excited to be working with her. We will be serving as the Sister Training Leaders here. Not so sure how I feel about that, I really just want to go and pick up another baby bleue. But, I'm sure it'll be great. Sister
Training Leaders are sort of a newish thing, since a couple months into my mission, and every mission does them a little bit different. In our mission, we're kind of like zone leaders, but we're over three zones of sisters. It's crazy, we spend nearly the whole transfer on exchanges. Should be...fun? Cool-- I'll be Soeur Brimhall and Soeur Pagano's STL (still get to do stuff with my bleues). Other than that, Bordeaux is cool. I'll be serving in the Talence ward...which had 140 people at church this last week (not sure how to deal with that after our intimate 15 person meetings in Besancon) and I love the missionaries here. Time to start a new adventure. Apparently our sector is...less than booming, but I'm excited to help it turn around.
