#85: Week of Transfers

Hey! How are things going?  Well, today were changes (February 13th) and I am still the Zone Leader in Chuviscar; but I have a new companion!!!  His name is Elder Canché!  He's from Yucatan, over where Landon (his cousin) is!  He's funny and short.  I think it will be a great 6 weeks with him.  He has been out almost 13 months I believe.  Elder Rojas goes home in August. He was transferred to Cuauhtemoc as a Zone Leader and I'm now training my new comp as a Zone Leader.  That makes me Zone Leader #1 which kinda freaks me out but it's all good.  Deep down, I thought I had a 30% chance of leaving this area.  I had no idea that Elder Rojas would be.  I actually had an interview with President two weeks ago about setting goals that I want to accomplish during the remainder of my mission.  I wanna be a missionary that others still talk about years later after I leave. 

(His dad asked him if there are any other missionaries that he knows well, that are still in his zone) Ummm, there's only one that we call Niño, meaning "kid". haha Just a nickname that stuck since his training days, I believe his mom passed away while he has been on his mission.  I think it would be nice if he got a package from mom.  His name is Elder Hernandez, he likes American candy and love from the USA. haha  He has been out about 8 months, maybe a little more.  He's from the star of Acapucco Guerrero, it's near the city of Mexico DF.

Elder Johnson had changes to Parral.  He told me to have you tell his mom, he will most likely write tomorrow.  He is taking the bus to Parral right now.  I've never been to Parral, but everyone says it's full of steep Johnson's legs are gonna get huge!!!  Also, it's hotter than Chihuahua.  hahaha   

Sorry to hear about the fridge going out again.  In my world, I don't have a washer right now because it broke, but the owner of the house will have someone come over on Wednesday to fix it.  We don't really have to wait until P-day to wash our clothes, everyone just washes clothes when they need to. haha

Next Monday all the Zone Leaders in Chihuahua City will play b-ball together, or we will play lacrosse.  I think President Chavez will come too!! 

Love you long time!
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture to "Ponderize" is:
Alma 17:10-11
 10 And it came to pass that the Lord did visit them with his Spirit, and said unto them: Be comforted. And they were comforted.
 11 And the Lord said unto them also: Go forth among the Lamanites, thy brethren, and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me, and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls.
Saying goodbye to some of those from my zone:
Me with Elder Bautista and Elder Johnson

Elder Mamani is leaving the zone too.

Elder Bautista
