And Transfer 4 is Coming to an End With a Bang! July 4th 2016

Well, the transfer isn't over just yet, but its been awesome! We got transfer calls Saturday, but I'll get to that at the end.
This past Monday we met with my companions 2 MTC companions and their companions and ate lunch together. It was a fun time. The Koreans all chatted together while the 3 Americans chatted. I asked the other 2 sisters a bunch of fun questions and we had a great time talking. 
Then we went to go visit (suddenly) a less active sister and we got on the bus headed to her house when my companion nudged me and pointed to someone. It was the less active we were going to visit! She was on her way somewhere else, so it was a great miracle that we were able to meet her on the way!
We were going to meet another member who lives inside the army base another day, but we have to wait in the building for her to escort us inside, we ended up waiting 20 minutes and one of the guys at the desk asked "Are you missionaries?" And he asked a few questions about us and stuff. They see the Elders there often.
We had our last district meeting on Wednesday! We ate lunch as a district with the couple missionaries before, it was fun! We finally got the district picture we haven't taken for 3 months!
Sister Hwang went to go print pictures at a shop, and we accidentally left her SD card there, so we had to go back and get it haha.
After weekly planning on Friday we spent 2 hours writing message cards for the members. My hand hurt so bad.  I don't want to write anything else for a very long time! But the members really appreciate it. 
We had a 'Meet the President' meeting this Saturday. We practiced our song for him for an hour before, its always really easy to feel the spirit as we sing. I love songs. Especially ones about the Savior. The meeting started with President shaking each of our hands and talking to us one by one. His wife talked with us as well. :) Very sweet. It was cool because when he came in the room I looked in his eyes and I could see one thing written there "These are my missionaries" FULL of pride in us. It was really cool.
We had pizza for lunch, then after we played a game. It was to get to know the president. You had to chose X or O side of the gym and you had to chose with your companion together. There were some great yes or no questions about them. We didn't win, but we sure had fun hehe.
Saturday night, transfer calls came. 
Sunday we went to the American branch in the morning. It was so fun to her the little kids testimonies! There were about 12 of them that got up to tell us how they knew the church was true! They were so adorable. I miss that about America haha.

So! Transfer calls!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday night we waited patiently. 9:30..... 9:50..... 10:15... 10:25.... We started texting our leaders to find out why it was taking so long. We got a text that the new mission president was taking longer and not to go to sleep until we got the calls. So at roughly 10:40 we got a call, but it wasn't the AP.
It was President Turner.
He talked to Sister Hwang for a moment about finishing her mission then addressed me saying something to the effect of "Sister Brooksby, the Lord has called you and would like you to serve as a trainer." 
So friends, family, everyone, I have been called to train one of the 3 Korean sisters who will be arriving here. I'm so excited! Its gonna be so great!!! I've always wanted to train! This will be Korean companion 3/3 XD All Koreans hehe.

That's it for this week! Love you all!
