(the one where I began the final transfer)
Its official, as of today! I begin my final transfer. I'm staying right here in San Fernando area to end my mission with my awesome trainee Elder Linford! The mission is changing a ton since there's a big mission split in a few weeks, and all the changes in the transfer tomorrow determine which mission each missionary stays in. super crazy!
Things are great, just trying to work hard and not get trunky! But its not too hard, good area good ward good district, and good new companion all make it easier.
This Sunday we are hoping to have a baptism for Tania the daughter of Jose our recent convert. If all things go according to plan anyways! But we are excited for her, and she is sooo excited to be baptized. In the last month she has become a completely changed person. The gospel has taken her and totally changed everything for her and for her family, and she is very happy. She loves to share her testimony of the book of Mormon and the church, and was able to overcome some more very challenging obstacles and is now very ready for baptism! She came to church again yesterday and loved it. and We gave a blessing the other day to her 2 year old daughter so that she would behave in church (it was a miracle in and of itself that she let us give her the blessing) and Sunday rolled around and she was quiet and well behaved all 3 hours! crazy right?! It was way cool. She loves it, she even cam to the fathers day ward activity Saturday too. So yeah things are going great here!
Just lovin life and trying to go out in a blaze of glory (but in a good way!)
Love you all have a good day!
