Ice Ice Baby

Yeah, it's that time again. Six weeks has come and gone. WAY too fast.
So I got a call from el presidente...he gave me some news. Do you guys want to know? Are you sure? I've give you a hint. It's somewhere cold...really cold.

I'm going to Fairbanks.

So for most of you who are saying " idea where that is or what the significance is in that area..." Well let me educate you..... Fairbanks is consistently around negative 40 to 50 in the basically inhuman temperatures. YEAH, FUNNY JOKE RIGHT?! President Beesley must have forgot I'm from Texas and I'm chronically freezing. Although I'm terrified to experience such unfathomable temperatures and to leave the southeast, I have prayed a ton and I have been able to receive a sweet peace about Fairbanks. I will be serving in a YSA branch. It will be fun to see how the holidays are there. AND we are close to the North Pole and they have an actual Santa's shop and everything!!! It's like the real life north pole and I'll be there for christmas! I really have a great love for YSA so I know it will be good. I know I was called there for a reason. It has been really really hard saying bye to all the people I've grown to love so much here in Juneau, I didn't think I would be such an emotional mess! But Juneau and Sitka will always have a special place in my heart. :)

So if anyone looking at sending an early Christmas would be the time. :) Anything warm, please. I am desperate. Gloves, hats, scarves, anything. I have a good pair of boots and a coat.

I don't have a lot of time but I just want you all to know I am doing well and that I love you!!! Fairbanks, here I come!!
The church is true!!!

Love Sister Hallmark


  1. I'm so happy to hear you're doing well! I will be sure to check back and keep up with how youre doing.

  2. The day I got to Fairbanks it was -60 degrees. 5 months later when I transferred out it was 102 degrees. Fairbanks sees both ends of the weather.
