Short email today! I have been on the transfer van for most of the day because now I am in DEMING, NEW MEXICO!

I am now a Zone Leader and my companion is my trainer Elder Tyler! He trained me in the beginning! This is his last transfer so I get to "kill him" after he trains me how to be Zone Leader.

I am super excited! Still in a Spanish Branch out here!  Have a great week!

Carne Asada and Crazy Driving!

Monday: We had pday! We did sand volleyball at a volleyball pit in the Sister's apartment complex. It was so much fun! 2 Elders in my district stopped by and left their phone... Also, one of the sets of Elders in the zone are on bikes and needed a ride to the dinner appointment we were all going to. We gave them a ride to our apartment to change then to dinner. We then gave them a ride to their apartment, which was way west!

Sushi X2

Pretty cool week here on the Mish!

Wednesday: District meeting about the Book of Mormon. After, we all went out to a restaurant to take part in their Sushi lunch buffet. It was my first time having sushi! It was really good!

Thursday: We had an exchange! I was with Elder Acosta, he is from Ecuador. He is super cool and funny! That night, we taught Lupita and Juaquina! It was so much fun because we talked about the 10 Commandments and did the hand method to remember them. It was tough when we got to #5, Honor your father and mother. Lupita said that her neighbor said this to Juaquina, "You are breaking the 5th commandment because your father is not there and he is not part of your life so how can you honor him. You are breaking the commandments!" So Juaquina was in tears. It was really tough. I want to say that we are not punished for the actions of others! What about an orphan? It was her fathers choice to leave. She is doing well honoring her mother! We moved their date for baptism to the 2nd of May.

Ok pretty awesome week!

Monday: Andres! So he is a friend of Ovaldo and Alex. He is from Cuba. We met with him and opened with a prayer. He then went to bear his testimony on his escape from Cuba and how faith has played a major role in his life! It was so awesome! We would share scriptures with him as he spoke and he loved all the scriptures! Elder Chinas then asked him if he wanted to be baptized. He immediately said yes! I asked him why, he said that he has faith in God and Jesus Christ and wants to follow Christ's example! For some reason, May 25th sounded right in my mind. I asked if he wanted to be baptized on May 25th, he said that sounds like the perfect day to be baptized. Basically we were all on Spiritual Cloud 9 after that! He is so awesome and should be baptized very soon! Except, upon further inspection, May 25th is a Monday... We will set a new date for May 9th.
