#67: 15 Months Out; Changes.....Drum Roll Please!

Soooooo....... I have big news! Drum Roll Please...... I have changes (transfers)!!! I'm pretty excited!! The changes from now on are, if you are training a new person from the CCM, you have changes on Monday, but all of the others are tomorrow, but we found out last night at about 11:10PM!!!hahaha  I'm going to be going to Chihuahua in the zone called Tecnológico 1. Can't wait!  Tonight I'm going to pack my stuff.  I started this morning but I'm struggling finding room for everything!! I will still be a district leader. I'll be going on the Omnibuses!  They're like big travel buses with nice comfortable seats!  The mission has a contract or something like that with them so we don't have to pay anything, the mission will pay for it all. I do know that my companions name is Elder Johnson!  I guess he just finished his training and with that last name, I believe he's American!!  My first gringo comp!!

(When Preston told us the name of his upcoming companion, I laughed out loud because I knew exactly who his companion is.  Elder Johnson's mom is on the mission FB page that I follow and we have corresponded back and forth for a few months now.  I sent Preston a picture of Elder Johnson to show his what his new companion would look like.  I have a feeling it's going to be a great companionship)

I believe Elder Arnold goes  home this Wednesday, so he's in the office now so I think I will see him tomorrow! :)  I will be sure to take one last pic with him before he goes! :)

Elder Merlo (who he recently trained as his last companion) will actually be finishing up training Elder Hernandez (who he's been with for this last 6 weeks.  This means my "first son" will be the "father" of my "second son"!!!  How weird is that!!??

This week's scripture is:
Doctrine & Covenants 124:45

And if my people will hearken unto my voice, and unto the voice of my servants whom I have appointed to lead my people, behold, verily I say unto you, they shall not be moved out of their place.
