01-06-15 On the move

Welp happy new year... it´s 2015.... that is super wierdismo. I´m going to turn 20 years old this year.... geez I feel ancient. Where or where did the time go?

This week is the changes.. or transfers as they say in other parts. I am no longer going to be in Otoro which is a huge bumber because we finally got 9 of our investigators to come to church. And the District started to be the Bomb, we have 15 people scheduled to be baptized this month... and I get called to leave. The good thing is that I already know where I´m going. Just an hour more away from the capital to a place called La Esperanza..... That means I will be a Zone leader of the same zone that I am in right now so... kinda weird. haha at this rate I will have half my mission in Zone Esperanza. haha pretty neat. Also something funny, I will be staying in my same district as before, but instead of being the District Leader I´ll be the Zone Leader. Also I will no longer be the branch president of Otoro, they´re sending me to Esperanza because the Branch president is super depressed, so president told him he´d be sending me to  help him out. I´m not sure how much of a comfort that was for The Branch president but I guess we´ll see tomorrow. 

Basically I feel like, once again I'm leaving home. I know this little village and almost everyone in it sooo well.... haha it's gonna be crazy to leave after 8 months in one spot.

Other than that, not much big news. We got up at three to take some of our youth to SOY (They didn't let me drive the buggers) and honestly it was kinda super stressful to see you´re youth leave and worry about them. I can't imagine having kids, that´s gonna be terrible and I guess partly wonderful as well.

Also I just want to give some advice to those who are going out to the mission. It´s a simple piece of advice, and it applies to life as well. Whatever you do, or whatever happens, ENJOY IT. If we are being obedient and doing our part you can be sure that whatever happens is for our happiness. Whether it is a happiness right now or a happiness only in that "mañana" depends solely on our attitude. So I guess the other part of that advice would just be like the scripture Trust in the Lord in all of your doings. (I believe that is the translation, don´t judge) The More Trust we have in God the More Faith we develop, the more miracles we see, and the better we become.

Love you guys happy 2015

Enjoy it. :)
paz y amor
