Transfer 6.4: Crows and Cooks

Hello, my devoted fans. It's me again, Sister Clark! I know, your favorite.

This has been quite the week! Probably the highlight of it was Elder
Quentin L. Cook coming and speaking to the missionaries and to the
members. We were really blessed to be able to shake his hand! Richard
Maynes and President Whiting were also their and also spoke to us.

One of the most interesting things about the apostle coming however,
is that it was a pleasure of ours to be able to spend some time
talking to missionaries from the North mission. In all, there was more
than 400 missionaries that came to hear him speak! Isn't that
remarkable? There was so much excitement in the air. I even met
another Sister Clark! That was quite the surprise. And she is quite
the cutie!

In other news, I learned that if you accidentally drop your planner
filled with erasable ink near the super hot microwave oven, that all
the ink magically disappears. It's handy when you want it to
disappear... But not handy when you need all that information!! Not
to worry. We were able to stick it in the freezer and most things have
been partially restored.

We have begun teaching a really adorable 80 year old. She is about as
fashionable as you can get. We will see how her interest continues.

On Friday, we has some adventures in the park. Some true tender
mercies of The Lord, but not quite in the way you would think.

You see, Sister Maloy was having a a particularly grumpy day. Being in
a beautiful park, with great weather and sunshine was starting to help
lift her spirits. Then, just as you might suspect from a loving
Heavenly Father, we saw the cutest little ducklings swimming along,
some going faster than I have ever seen any duckling go ever.

But this apparently was not enough to lift Sister Maloy's spirits, oh
no, she needed something extra special. So we are walking along, when
descends a very small crow into a bush. It was struggling and appeared
to be stuck, so Sister Maloy went over to help it. In her attempt to
help it, the think hoped onto her arm and refused to go anywhere else.
Crows are Sister Maloy's favorite animal.

There were other her crows over head who were seriously freaking out
at us and we still aren't sure why, but we did manage (with the help
of a sweet Japanese grandmother) to get the crow back into a tree to
help it get back on its way.

It was just a small, crazy happening that we will probably never ever
forget. It was some pretty crazy stuff. But it is just one example of
a tender mercy of our Heavenly Father.

Love you so much. Keep living strong in the faith.

Sister Teagan Clark
