Mountain River = Mongolia

From September 5, 2016

We were asked to share about missionary work on Sunday in the English branch so we made cookies and related sharing the gospel is like sharing cookies. So pretty much being a missionary is awesome! We just share cookies all day long! (:

I learned what Mongolia (or in Mongolian mongol) means, mon means mountain, and gol means river. Mountain river (:

We also made peanut butter cookies :D you know its a good week when you have peanut butter cookies at home! (:

We also made pizza for lunch which almost didn't turn out, we slaved for this pizza! and then we were so happy when it was done! then we went and met with some members house and they have ordered pizza :P haha

We have double church duties! so fun and so crazy too! We have people come up to us and we aren't 100% sure who everyone is yet :P haha we met a lady last week she told us she was thinking about going to a christian church and so we invited her  and she CAME!! (: it was awesome! she said her daughter said "let's go to church!"! (: 

We are still trying to figure out our area! It's coming little by little! that's probably why my email is short, sorry!

Sister Bennett (:

Beautiful view from a hike!

A log cabin?

That's better!

A ger outside our apartment?  A day later it was gone.


From August 29, 2016

Well transfers came out and I left Sansar ): I definitely cried. I have served there for 10 months! I pretty much just felt like a resident, that's probably why I got moved. #toocomfortable

Anyways, now I am in Han-uul and Tuul, and my companion is Sister Nelson. Neither of us were serving in this area before so we are white washing! :O But our area is beautiful. It's right up next to the mountains! There is a river dividing our two areas!

Before transfers happened this week we met with a grandma from Sister Hartley's old area and she said its already FALL! Its still August!  Summer is so short here!

Sister Nelson's momma sent her Ramen and we ate that on Friday it was beautiful!!!!!!!!! (: thanks Momma Nelson!

Sipping Ramen through a straw
Saturday we went and Sister Kirby taught us Han uul and a little bit of Tuul it should be good, we should get tooo lost now (:

We were trying to talk to everyone at church and get appointments and names! It's a good thing there was two of us. 

Then Sunday night we met with bishop and a member family in our ward. We taught a lesson about service, but I know they served us more than we served them. They gave us buuz and a ride home! I'm really excited to be here the members are great! Its gonna be a good transfer!
