Stranded on an Island for Christmas 12/7/15

Dear Family and Friends,

 I know I often tell you that the mission is amazing, and that it's the best thing ever, but at times, to tell you the truth, it's not—it's actually, at times, the worst.
Transfers are today and I have left the hood. This part of the mission is not so fun. I am going to miss my ward so much. Leonard's baptism is this Saturday, and I won't be there to see it, but I guess I don't need to be. Saying goodbye was really hard, and I was trying not to show it, but when Isabel our 9 year old investigator started crying...I lost it. I love the people here so much. I don't even know how to explain it. The thought of not going and doing FHE at Antonia's house this Thursday makes me want to jump out this airplane. I wish you all could meet the people I have met, they are amazing and have changed my life. If you ever visit Spain, yes Segovia and Toledo are cool, but I suggest visiting the ward here in Torrejon. There's no where else like it.

I don't want to leave. Hermana Graff is the best and so is the hood. 😕
Leaving areas is the worst. 

I am now sitting on an airplane. Our new president has discovered that I am a big crazy Junie B Jones—and he is done with me, and has kicked me out of Madrid—

—and in about three hours, I will arrive at the Canary Islands. I will be serving in a little land called Telde; isolated from the rest of the mission. So, no more cold nights, or gloves, or scarves—which is a plus—but I'll have a tempting beach, and ocean that I can't swim in. 

This week was crazy and really hard...because of the goodbyes. But it was so great. 
On Tuesday we went to court—because another Hermana got her wallet stolen and then they found they guy, so she had to go and testify. (Maybe he's that same guy that stole my bag). Hermana Graff and I thought it would be really cool, but it really was a let down, because it was just a bunch of old Spaniards in a big lame room that looked like an office. 😑 

We also had Kenneth's baptism this week which was really good! He is so amazing. 

I don't know—so much happened this week. I don't really know how to explain it all. 
I love you so much. 

Love, Hermana Kelemen
