Hello family! Wow, I can't believe it's Monday again, it feels like just yesterday I was writing you! It was a pretty good week here in the ward, we had a baptism yesterday of Susana, 83 years old. She has family who are members, and they said it's been an 18-year-long wait for her to get baptized, as that's the amount of time they've been members of the Church. It was a very special baptismal service, I really felt the Spirit strongly yesterday. I think all of you asked if I have a new companion yet, and the answer is no. Elder Garcia will be leaving next week, completing the month-long extension he had. In terms of what will happen next week, who will be my companion and all, well, I have no clue! It'll be another case of those "emergency transfers" that happen rather often here in the mission. So next week I'll have an update of all that happens with that! This week we're just going to go out and talk to as many people as possible to be able to increase our success here in the sector, and so that my new companion and I will have an abundant number of people to teach.
I'm sure that this week will pass by just like the last few have, a blink of the eye, and I'll be writing again! Well, to Mom and Ky, have fun at Bear Lake! Soon enough I'll be able to go! Ha ha! Ah yes, the treats from Elder Burger's family: DELICIOUS! There's still some left, so I'll be able to enjoy them for a little while longer! I hope RSL can pull it together this week and get back to winning! Glad to hear that Brock is doing good, sounds like his talk was fantastic! Tell tham I say hi! Tell the neighborhood campers I say hi as well!
I love you all, take care, have a fantastic week!
