Hey familia that I love so much!
I am back in the valley! This was a good move by the president. I have a testimony that President Hall is an inspired man. The work is so much harder in Santa Clarita that I have this theory that they send missionaries up there so they can become excellent and then come back and destroy it in the valley.
I am in a tripan now. My new companions are named: Hermana Clifton and Hermana Blankinship. I feel like I have learned a lot about loving people and being patient and about what is important. Before I left Santa Clarita on the morning of transfers, my zone leader Elder Guevara (from south/west jordan) came to my apartment to pick up my bike and offered me a blessing because he knew that I'd never ask for one even if I needed one. As time has played on and experiences have unfolded, I have found the words he told me to be more and more inspired.
To say we have been experiencing a lot of rain here would be an understatement. It has been dumping. (Hopefully pictures to follow)
Edilberto got baptized on Saturday. Yay!
Enio got baptized on Sunday. Such a tender man!
The ward here wants to be very involved. Maybe to a point that it is almost detrimental, but I'm going to have it work for our advantage.
I said goodbye to Santa Clarita this last week. This is the sweet little Mendez daughter.
She cried when I left and gave me these flowers.
Two of my absolute favorite comps
