05.22.2017 LAST EMAIL

FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!

To sum up this last week quickly, it was great. We got rained on a few times (which is normal), we taught a few people, and knocked on a few doors. Yesterday was my last day at church in the Omagh branch and everyone was so kind.
But anyway, this is the LAST WEEKLY EMAIL OF MY MISSION. This time next week, I’ll be on a plane flying back from Edinburgh, Scotland to Spokane, Washington. It is absolutely insane how fast a year and a half goes by. I can’t believe that it’s already time to go home. Wish it wasn’t.
I just want to let you all know that I KNOW that my Redeemer lives!! I have spent the last 18 months of my life in His service. I love Him with all my heart. Words cannot describe how I feel at the end of my mission. It truly is bittersweet.
I love you all. Please know that your Father in Heaven loves you and that He is always there.
For those of you who are on their missions or who just keep in contact through email, my email is mickhassing@gmail.com. For those of you at home, I sure hope to get in contact with you and speak with you soon!!!!
Love,
Sister Michayla Hassing

Hello family and friends!

This week was another beautiful week!! It was sunny all of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and then it started to get grey and rainy only on Thursday. But you take the sun whenever you can get it out here in Ireland.
Anyway, not too terribly much happened this week. We went to Derry, taught a few people, and got stuck in the rain a few times (a usual thing). Nothing too unusual. All is well. We got to go inside a huge cathedral and that was pretty cool.
I did get to Skype though!! That was the real highlight. Loved every minute of it. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!!
Hope you all have an amazing week and that you enjoy the nice, warm weather!!
Love you all!

05.08.2017 Goodbye, Campsie!!

Hello family and friends!!

I have no shortage of what to talk about this week!! My goodness.

This week was packed full of adventures. On Monday night, we traveled to Belfast and spent the night with some sisters there. Tuesday morning, we had to wake up super early and drive down to Dublin for an All-Ireland missionary conference. That was awesome. Also really scary and kinda weird because it was my LAST EVER zone conference and I had to give a departing testimony. I’ll really miss zone conferences though. They’re always so much fun and you get to see so many friends.

Anyway, after the conference, we had to drive back to Belfast and stay there again Tuesday night because we were going to have exchanges with Sister Palmer and Sister Checketts on Wednesday so we spent the whole day there on Wednesday as well. That was really fun cause they’re just crazy. We had to stay in Belfast again on Wednesday night because President and Sister Donaldson were coming to interview us all on Thursday. And that, as always, was amazing. I love them so much.

But then the real craziness started. Cause after we came back on Thursday, Sister Truman and I had to move out of our flat!! For the past 3 months, we’ve been living on Campsie Rd in Omagh. Which happens to be the biggest party-street in the whole town. So every night, we would be woken up by screaming drunk people running through the street past our flat. Also, our back door didn’t lock. And the hot water came out boiling. And we had a pet mouse who we named Harry. And in our one flat, there were 4 flights of stairs. And we lived above a Subway. So needless to say, we are SO HAPPY that we’re out of that flat. But it was an adventure. We did it all by ourselves and the letting agent required us to move all the furniture into the same position it was in when the flat was first rented. So we had to move huge wardrobes and beds down 2 flights of stairs. That was terrifying. Haha. But we managed.

Anyway, hope you all have an amazing week!!! Love you so much!!

Love

Hello family and friends!!

This week was another spectacular week on the Emerald Isle! It is absolutely gorgeous outside today as well so we’re looking forward to another great week.
Last Monday for P-day, Sister Truman and I took a roadtrip and went to Belfast! The Titanic was built in Belfast and so they have a huge museum for it and we went and it was awesome. We also just hung out and did some shopping and just enjoyed ourselves while we were there.
On Tuesday when we were going to District Meeting, we got stuck in traffic for an hour! It was absolutely ridiculous. There’s this little tiny town on the way from Omagh to Londonderry -it’s like going through Wilbur to get from Omak to Spokane. No stoplights. Just a straight shot through. But it took us half an hour to get all the way through that little tiny town. And then it took us another half an hour to get to another little tiny town where it cleared up a bit. Usually it takes us 1 hour or maybe even less to go to Londonderry from Omagh but it took us 2 hours. Needless to say, we were late for District Meeting. But that was okay. Lol.
We got to hold more lambs!! That was so much fun!! They’re so cute and tiny and fluffy!
But anyway, love you all and hope you all have a fantastic week!!
Love,
Sister Michayla Hassing
