#49: New Area, New Companion, New Responsibilities

How's things going?  I've got some crazy news for you, to say the least :)  I had "changes" today and I left Guerrero and now I'm in Cuahutemoc AGAIN!!! Elder Herrera stayed in Guerrero.   I'm in a different part of the zone though.  Also, my new companion is straight out of the CCM, meaning that I'm going to be training him!!!  His name is Elder Merlo!  He's from Honduras! haha Pretty sweet, huh?  And, to make things even more crazy, I was made a District Leader here as well!!!!  You're talking to the most freaked out, nervous District Leader and trainer there is right now in all of Chihuahua!!! hahahaha  We are going to be super obedient and work our butts off! :)  I think there are 8 missionaries in my district and I believe 16 in the zone.  I don't know any of the other elders in my district.  There is a ward here with a church building! :)  We are in the Barrio Reforma (Barrio means-Ward)  I'm a bit overwhelmed and nervous for the new changes, but I know that it will be good.  The house we are in isn't too big, it's decent to say the least.

I wasn't able to view the video of Brecken opening the package because the internet cafe here sucks! haha but the pictures were good too!  I'm glad that he liked what I sent him.

Love your son,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture is:
Alma 26:8

Blessed be the name of our God; let us sing to his praise, yea, let us give thanks to his holy name, for he doth work righteousness forever.

Elder Merlo, Elder Nicoll and his new companion
(The two new Elders are known as "Greenie's and "son"
to the Elder that is there trainer.  So, Elder Merlo would be
Elder Fowler's "son"-mission lingo)
Outside the mission offices in Chihuahua

Bring in Tamosachic

These are cockroaches-We killed like 30 of them in my
house in Guerrero!
(I had to send this to Elder Fowler, since he will be training
his first "greenie" in the mission.)
