(I had asked him if he knew the man named Hermano Hipolito that Elder Fardos baptized a couple weeks ago since he is now serving in Preston's last zone. This man is 87 years old and walks to church every Sunday!)
How are things going? I DO know who Hermano Hipolito is. I talked to him a couple times at the church! He's cool!!! :)
(I told him we have a new missionary in our ward, Elder Latham, and that I hope he is still in our ward when he gets home because I really think they will enjoy each other.)
Do you know when the new elder there goes home? I have a feeling that he might be there when I come home!! Speaking of home....that's only 9 weeks; holy smokes!!! hahaha I'm trying everyday to give everything I've got!
(His dad asked him if things seem bittersweet)
That's how I feel. A small part of me wants to go home, but the majority is like, I belong here, there's a lot of people that I don't want to leave, I love them all so much. We've found some new people we are teaching and are coming to church as well. We are trying to end the month with a baptism. We just need the permission of the mom and that's it. We've been praying that her heart will be touched and that she let's her son get baptized.
Also, there were special changes yesterday and now Elder Larsen is the Assistant to the President, with Elder Sanchez. Elder Anton and Elder Beeson are together again on a special assignment. They are with another elder in a trio and their assignment is to train all the missionaries so they can be leaders in the mission because most of the leaders in the mission right now leave this summer, so they will prepare them to take leadership positions. It should be good!! :)
Elder Sanchez, the one that I was companions with and we got along so great, will be going home in three weeks!!! hahaha How sad :( I get along so well with all of these guys. Somos Hermanos para siempre----which means: WE ARE BROTHERS FOREVER!!!
This Week's Scripture to "Ponderize" is:
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou God.
