Week 84 - 5 Transfers Strong!

Wow......crazy time with transfers today and what is happening really. Well, drum roll please.....Im staying here in Huajsapata in Puno! 5 transfers going strong!! haha Elder Stringham is leaving though, going to the jungle part of the mission, Puerto Maldonado, with probably one of my favorite guys as his companion! He is so lucky but Im glad he is going off to another area to learn more now from another person. So now my new companion will be Elder Yepez, dont know him yet but Im excited to get to work and have a blast. So, pretty crazy though, everyone thought it was me going this transfer, but I know the Lord has something else in store for me.

Also this week, our pensionista Gisela and her family, is the last week they will be cooking for us. It is very sad really, they are awesome and so fun to be around. So this next week, we will be eating at the bishop's wife's house, not going to be bad, but we will miss Gisela, Marleny, Helaman, Marcos, Grover, and Hyrum! To end our time with them we bought a bunch of pizzas to celebrate and have a good time, so we did go off with a bang. 

As work goes, we are doing awesome!! The 2 new awesome investigators from last week, Marli and her brother Ivan are great and are progressing super well. We were able to invite and set a baptismal date for Ivan for May 28th, but with Marli we werent able to teach this week. Ivan also came to church, really liked it, and really wants to attend each week and progress toward his baptismal date. We also have another investigator, Yessmeri, who we also put another date for May 28th.....so hoping for some more of God's miracles here in the next transfer to help us with her and all of our investigators we have. 

So, lots of stuff going on and changes to come with new companion, but to just finish off strong here in the mission!! 3 transfers more!! Nothing can explain how fast the time is going and now it is the home stretch, so I need to keep going til the end!! Well, have a great week everyone!!
