I learned a week ago that I will have a new companion, due to arrive one month from today. We didn't have very much notice and I was surprised to learn she would be coming so early. Sister Harper wasn't scheduled to leave until March 25. She has moved her date up to March 9.
The new companion is Sister Humphery, a 47-year-old woman from Missouri. She joined the Church just 3 years ago. She is divorced, no children. Her office experience seems to be limited. This will be like having one of my children as my companion--except for the fact that I don't know her, of course. Not sure how excited she will be to have "her mother" as her companion.
Sister Harper and I have developed such a close friendship and I will miss her. She has truly been a blessing in my life these first 3 months in this very foreign land.
