Alright so really I don’t have any idea what happened last week and if it was my fault I would like to apologize. I promise you that I did send a letter last week but I don’t think it sent and it didn’t save as well so I don’t know but the important thing is that I’m writing now.
Much has happened in these last few weeks, as you can see we had a baptism last week and another one again this week! It has been amazing see these people grow closer to Christ and make these important decisions in their lives to follow him. I’m so happy for them that they are doing the right thing. We baptized this boy named "A" this week too and he is soo cool he’s 10 years old and the rest of his family will be baptized as well but they are just going to take a little bit longer. There are some things we need to work with them on, like word of wisdom and law of chastity but it’s a challenge I’m ready to handle. Anyway I’m grateful for the example he will be to his family.
But anyway I should tell you about the crazy weekend after the baptism we had, so transfers were this well today but we got the calls on Sat. So what has happened is that my old area Renacimiento has been closed and there will no longer be missionaries working in that area officially. I have been transferred to the area San Vicente, and guess what they are neighbours. My new comp is Elder N. It’s really funny too cause after the baptisms on Saturday and we both baptized, we were talking and I was like ¨hey were gunna be comps next transfer” just jokingly cause he has 6 months in this area already so this next will make it seven and a half but ya then we did end up being comps. He’s way cool and we have been in the same pension now for 3 months and so now we are comps and both our comps left to other areas. So we went from a 4 man pension to 2 so this could get a little interesting. But hey I’m excited and its really sad cause there are more people that can be baptized in that area but I will talk to President and see if we can keep on visiting them. Anyway I better move on cause I don’t have too much time left and were kind of in a rush and I can tell you a lot more detail on Christmas.
Speaking of that. I will buy a phone card here and will be calling from our chapel and so I will be calling the house around 6pm my time and I think that’s about 3pm your time so if you could all be there that would be awesome. I’ll just call and then we will talk and ladida it will be done but I’m pumped to hear you guys this next week. Its gunna be a real Christmas treat and also I got your package. It was one that said Navidad Especial on it so I hope that’s the one you sent a long time ago, if not its probably lost and now I have this one but hey it’s all good I’m looking forward to opening it.
I don’t really know what else to say right now my mind is going pretty fast and I want to say so much, I have so little time. I hope all is well with you guys it sounds like you are all staying busy with basketball both Sara and Dad coaching (way to go by the way!!!!) and ya sounds like your all keeping busy and Mom with Christmas all lined up. Man I miss the holidays but hey I got time to enjoy later. I’m loving it here, its definitely hard at times and we will see how this next transfer goes but hey I’m loving the work and I know it’s what I need to be doing and I know that it is true. I know that God can help us with whatever we are going through and he’s there to help us out. Anyway I’m sorry not too much said today and I didn’t really have any stories to share but hey until next week. I love you all soo much and I’ll talk to you soon.
