Tiara's tidbits!

I hosted for the new missionaries on Wed (which means meet them when they arrive and take them to get checked in and stuff) AND guess who was coming the SAME DAY?? Yep-- Hermana Brodhead! So I was most definitely her host! It was really fun! And she lives like 3 doors down from me so we see each other often. I love it! But what are the odds that I would be Hosting the same day Kimmy came? So cool.

TODAY the Russian elders and sisters received their endownments in the temple! So we all went and it was a wonderful experience! We met them in the celestial room and they were all so happy! It reminded me of my first time and all the wonderful family and friends I had there. I am so blessed!

So anyway, overall it's been a pretty good week! 3 weeks from yesterday and I'll be in Russia! Pretty crazy, huh?

OH! And guess what EVERYONE has been telling us? Sister missionaries in Novosibirsk have to cut their hair above their shoulders and wear lots of make-up. WHAT?? So we'll see how true that is. But we've met people from there here who say it's true.

Have a wonderful week!

Fun MTC Photos

Our branch Sisters.

Me and Sister Fronk.

Us with our ring pops!

This is where I'm going in a few weeks!

This past week our new girls came and today our native Russians arrive. It's been fun, and they're really sweet. I bet the russians will be too.

Kimberley Brodhead is coming to the MTC tomorrow and maybe I will be her Host! It's crazy that things worked out that way. That would be really cool! So it's been a pretty eventful week. I just remember how it felt my first week here and we've eben trying to help the new sisters have a good transition.

Randomings at the MTC

This was  my first laundry day in the MTC.  Me and Sister Abram like to share skirts.  Here we are matching. 
I reached my 1/2 way point last week!  I'm not sure if that went by fast or slow...but it's crazy to think I'll be in Russia!

These were our coordinating Sisters, Sister Larsen and Sister Burke.  They got to leave this week.

Sister Fronk and I with two of our Russian friends.  Sister Loboda and Sister T.

Almost (minus a few) our whole branch after the other missionaries left. 

And then some of my favorite sisters.

Sister Abram and Sister Fronk.

Tomorrow new Sisters and Elders come so I'll be pretty busy with that.  We are only getting two new Sisters which is crazy, but they will be getting a lot of attention and love, which in nice for them.  Then next week we get our new native missionaries from Russia!  So that's really exciting!!!
