Flabbergastingly Inspired Changes!

Firstly, how the area is doing: We had planned to find 5 new investigators this week but all of the appointments one by one fell through. But we set quite a few more for next week so the work goes on! Also, Lupita and her whole family of 4 came to church this week, yay! We are going to set them with a baptismal date very soon!  Our members are great, though! The Calderon family, who already introduced us to Lupita and her family, introduced us to Juan, their neighbor. He was in a very rough spot but just a week or two ago he decided to stop drinking. He is so ready for the gospel and has already accepted a baptismal date! Member missionary work is the best! 

Our trip to the Temple.

Now, the good stuff! We got our transfer calls last night! I am staying! But Elder Gonzalez is leaving the area, but staying in the Branch! We are opening up a new area here in the Rama Vista, so there will be three companionships here now. He will be getting double transferred, meaning neither him nor his companion have been in the area previously, so they have to start from almost nothing! But I am confident in him! Also, his companion is going to be Elder Maiava, one of my old district mates from the MTC! 

Elders Gurr, Gonzalez Torres and myself.

This is going to be a crazy transfer. Especially because I have also been called to train a new missionary! And.... be a District Leader here in Sparks Zone! In my District will be me, my new companion, then Elder Gurr and HIS new companion (because he's training!), and then Sister Nielson and Sister Hull (new STL). It's gonna be a super lit transfer this next transfer, and this Branch is going to blow up! 

A home-made shrine we ran across.

Also, I almost forgot, we went to the temple on Tuesday, it was awesome!

Hope everyone has a great week! BYE!
