and all, and HOLY COW, he’s already home!
Can’t believe my eye balls!
Congrats to him and boy do I miss him.
OK, now to the other, not so important stuff:
Well we have a new president and I got to meet him last
Wednesday and WOW he’s AMAZING! Talk
about a man of God! And his wife ... she
and I are gonna get along just great. She’s so so so so so so so so
funny!!!!!! Anywho, we had a zone
conference to get to know him and his main message was "be 100%
obedient" ... pretty interesting huh!
I love it! That’s what it’s all
about! Success and happiness are what

Anywho, it was my turn to stand up and introduce myself in
this conference and I mentioned that I was from Fort Collins and they both in

Ok, now the scary news!
I’m getting transferred! I know
not where and with whom ... but tomorrow I’ll be off to a new land with a new
comp and boy my adrenalin just can’t stop pumping! Iztapalapa has been my home for all my mission
and here I have made new friends, found much success, seen miracles, felt true
happiness and grown spiritually in a way my little brain can’t even
comprehend. Leaving is going to be so
hard, but I’m so excited for what lies ahead!
I feel so, so blessed right now in my life and I’m so, so
happy I just can’t put it into words. Serving the Lord really is the best thing
any 19 year-old-boy could do.
Next week get ready for the big news on where I am and who
my comp is.
