 NEW HARTFORD (UTICA) (2)









So I am loving New Hartford!! :) It is so much fun!! :) Me and Sister Ferrin are getting along great and doing good work here!! We are really excited to see where this transfer takes us! The ward is also great and I absolutely love all the people we are teaching! We teach a LOT of young kids! It is good! They all love us and are just the sweetest! :)

So we have this awesome investigator Victoria who has come to church 4 times and absolutely loves it!!! She is doing awesome!!! She doesn't want to set a date for baptism yet because she doesn't see the need for her to get married.. so we are going to have to work through that one! :) 

We also teach "the Utica Crew". the crew has multiple teenagers who love the sisters! 3 of them are already members!! It is awesome! They all have a really hard life but the ward is great and taking them in and helping them remain active it is awesome!! :) We love them a lot!! 

Then Valentina a 14-year-old who is just the cutest thing! She loves what she is learning and really wants to come to church but she hasn't been able to talk her mom into letting her go yet. It's kinda sad. But we will get them there soon  :) 

We also went out with Sister Rogers this week and it was great! It has been so much fun being so close to President and Sister Rogers and the other office couples. It has definitely been a change and we do laundry at the mission home which is the first good laundry machine I have had on my mission everything is so clean!!! 

We picked up a new investigator and put him on baptismal date for Feb 25th!! Mike. is Alieanna's uncle (she is a recent convert) When Alieanna was baptized she just wanted her example to help her family come into the church and last night when we went to see her, her uncle joined in and agreed to be baptized! She was so excited for him it was awesome!! I am loving New Hartford!! 

It was hard to leave Syracuse.. I got to take pictures with everyone and say goodbye it was great! I can't wait to see them all again! 

Well love you all!! have a great week!!! 

Love: Sister DeVries
