What an emotions filled week!! Well.. I am leaving Celje. I am feeling absolutely heart broken, a lot of love, but so excited to start somewhere new. A LOT OF FEELINGS! President Grant came to Celje this week and had an interview with me and told me I would be leaving. It felt right when he told me, and I know that was the Spirit telling me that I have finished my work in Celje - for now at least :)
Well.. I am being transferred to the big city - Ljubljana! The capital of Slovenia. I will be serving this next transfer with Sister Dutton. As sad as I am to leave a place that I have loved so much for the last 7 months, I am excited to grow and now serve the people in Ljubljana.
Yesterday they invited me in sacrament meeting to bear my testimony. I was very emotional as I looked around at these people I love so much. I watched many of the members also weep which was hard to see, but I mostly felt so grateful for the relationships I have gained. And also for the growth that we all have had together these past 7 months. We closed the meeting with singing "God be with you till we meet again." What a beautiful moment and song. I feel so happy knowing that God loves us enough to give us such a wonderful gift, where we can live with those we love for eternity!!

And more importantly, I cannot wait to love the people in Ljubljana!!! Change is a wonderful thing and it stretches us to grow and I am excited to see what this next adventure has to offer.
Se slišamo! Imam vas rada!
Lp, Sestra Nydegger
