Sept 22, 2014 La Semana Final from CCM!

Hola amigos y familia!                                                  Sept. 22, 2014

Holy moly! Last letter from el CCM!!!!!!!!!!!!! This week has been nuts. Hermana R- and I had our last lessons with "Miguel" and "Leonor". 
Elder Scott came for Devotional on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was sooooooo gooood!!!!!!! He talked about different points about prayer, and it was super great. The first thing he told us when he walked in was "I don't want you to just have a good time on your mission. Have a blast!" I love his personality. It was really evident, especially when he was walking in and when he was leaving after the devotional. He gave us thumbs up, and then waved at us with both hands." 
Our district with our teacher, Hermano Wallace

Yesterday we had In-Field Orientation. It was awesome! We bussed up to Main Campus to join the rest of the missionaries leaving this week, and spent the whole day there. We had a lot of different meetings where we discussed different aspects of missionary work in the field, such as planning and setting goals, street contacting, and working with members. It made me really excited to get to Argentina and get going! Although it feels really weird right now to think that we only have a day and a half left in the MTC and we're not even going to be doing normal things like having class. 

Our district with Hermana Boyce
On Sunday we get to watch the Ogden Temple Dedication! So excited! And the two districts that are leaving are singing the EFY Medley, but with different words for the Sisters of Zion part. Janice Kapp Perry rewrote Sister in Zion for sister missionaries, and it is super awesome! Also, the part where it says "we will be the Lord's missionaries" is changed to "we ARE NOW the Lord's missionaries." It's SO awesome! 
Hermana S- got her temporary assignment! She's going to the California Oakland/San Francisco mission! Woohoo!
The Sisters of Zion

The sisters of Zion are called to God's labor, 
We willingly serve Him with Spirit and might!
We go to the nations with truth everlasting, 
We teach of the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ. 

We thank thee O God for a prophet to guide us, 
We trust in his word and our purpose is clear. 
The angels of heaven are walking beside us, 
We'll share our glad message with all who will hear. 
We go forth enlisted with Helaman's Army
In numbers far greater than ever before. 
With power and Spirit we'll faithfully witness,
The heavens have spoken and truth is restored!

Well, I don't have a ton more to say. I'm going to Argentina on Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got a calling card, so I will call you from Georgia, so make sure everyone is home. We are landing Tuesday morning at 8:30 AM, so that's going to be rough. But luckily I am flying straight to my mission. An elder from our zone that left here two weeks ago said he had to travel for five days to get to his mission in Neqeuin, Argentina. 
¡Yo sé que el evangelio es verdadero! ¡José Smith fue un profeta! Jesucristo les ama cada persona y sacrificía por todas personas. Dios es nuestro Padre Celestial. Él les ama y quiere cada persona volver a Él. 
Con amor, 
Hermana :Durfee
