So guess what! I got transferred again! My companion, Elder M, has finished his mission and goes home this week to Santiago, Chile. As for me, I guess that President K. decided that I do more damage in the field than out of it, so he´s decided to bring me back to the office! This time though, I´ve got one week to get up to speed and refresh my memory on how to run the mission´s finances, and then the old Secretary´s heading out and I take the chair. I´m a bit nervous going into this, but the Lord doesn´t call the qualified but qualifies the called! I´m just praying that he qualifies me! I´m going to be in a trio with my old companion, Elder S, and the other Secretary Elder C. It´s going to be great!
I´ve had a few wierd transfers like that in my mission, for example my companion in Rio Verde, Elder H. had been my companion for half a transfer in Itumbiara as well, and now I´m going for the second time to the Goiânia ward with the same companion that I had last time I was there! The mission´s great!
General Conference was incredible as well! Man, what talks! Elder Holland´s talk about Mothers was incredible, and it made me think a lot about my Mom! There is no one, save the savior himself, who is more deserving of the love of a child than that´s child´s mother. The mission has helped me to see just how much you´ve done for me, Mom! I love you!
Elder Costa´s talk was incredible too,
he talked about gaining a testimony of the atonement of Christ.
I was almost crying in Elder Bednar´s talk when
he spoke of how blessed we are to be guided by wise men inspired by God!
Elder Christofferson´s talk about the role of the church was perfect for two of our investigators who came to the session and had expressed the same question just a few days earlier. We´ve got a lot to study and learn from the conference!
I loved this talk about "Ponderizing" as
|Just to wrap up here, a Family was Baptized!|
Let me send some photos! I haven´t done such a great job about taking and sending photos this transfer, sorry! I´ll do better this next!
Here another picture of this Family's baptism!
