Change is hard ... so is staying awake during all of General Conference!!

Weird transfer change- Sister Winters actually didn't come back to YSA- President decided to move her somewhere else (one of my previous areas!), so now Sister Gotchy and Sister Heath are here in the YSA! I was so devastated when I found out we wouldn't go eternal after all...I love her with all my heart, and she has been the BEST companion ever. When she came back to get her stuff from the apartment we both started crying, but I know the Lord needs her to help His children in Eden Prairie. They're lucky to have her!  

If you missed hearing a prophet's voice this week, GO BACK AND WATCH GENERAL CONFERENCE! It was so amazing! The Spirit was so strong and testified to me of the truthfulness of everything that was said. We had a few investigators come which was neat! Vinh took lots of notes and asked some awesome questions afterwards. Speaking of Vinh, he thought it would be super funny to April Fools prank us by telling us he broke the Word of Wisdom- he's so Mormon already 😂 He's so excited for his baptism! Back on the topic of April Fools pranking, with a little help from the EQP Sister Gotchy, Sister Heath and I broke into the elder's apartment- we stole their piano and all their toilet paper!  We put the keyboard in the institute bathroom during conference- it was so hilarious. The TP issue they found out later that night...#christlikeservice. Later on a member took all 7 of us in his 5-seater truck to 6 of us are squished in the remaining 4 spots, and poor Elder Chen got tricked into sitting alone in the truck bed. The member was hilariously awful and braked about a thousand times to send him flying. But he seemed to like it after screaming "WHY AMERICA???". 

This week has been kinda crazy with all the emergency transfer stuff going on, but Victor and Vinh are both preparing for their baptism on the 15th! We're trying to find new investigators every day- being in a trio makes talking to people on campus a little more awkward, but we're trying! :) Hope everyone has a great week! 
Love, Sister Brett

Quotes of the week:

Tuan: "Wherever Timmy is, peace isn't."

Us: "Did you get a chance to read over the Plan of Salvation pamphlet?"
Vinh: "Yes, but I don't remember much. Something about living with God before we lived here, then we came to earth and Adam and Eve ate the fruit and then we were all subject to sin, so God sent Jesus Christ to die for us, and then we'll die and be resurrected where our bodies and souls will never part, and then we go to either the Celestial, Terrestrial, or Telestial kingdom. But I don't know, I just skimmed it." 

Elder Chen: "Why everyone in America so loud? You laugh at everything, even if it not funny. I will not laugh if I do not like."
