Transfer calls this time around were pretty unexpected for all the missionaries. I'm getting transferred down to Zadar, and I'm working with Sister Kropušek. They're splitting our Croatia zone because it's too big and hard to manage with exchanges, driving and such, so it will be a little bit different. It was sad having these be my last transfer calls. I'm excited for Zadar, but I'm also so sad to be leaving Zagreb and Sister Bradley. I love Zagreb so, so much. The members here have become my family away from home.
Also, I feel so proud of Sister Bradley. She is SO FANTASTIC. She speaks the language so well even though she has only been out here a short time. She is obedient, a hard worker, her testimony has deepened, and she has become a really powerful teacher. I cannot believe that I won't be working with her, our members and the people we have been teaching here. I know I will just be a wreck on Sunday.
President Uchtdorf says that goodbyes are hard for us, because we're not meant for them. We are made up of the stuff of eternity, and we are meant for eternal things, not endings. I think that is so important to remember in our relationships with everyone around us. Even if we are geographically separated, our relationships and the love we have for each other can continue and should continue to last.
