But before all the transfers, me and Elder Rivera had a pretty action-packed week. Everyone knew it was our last week together and so everyone wanted to give us really delicious food and cake, we definitely didn't mind. Before the transfers came in last night, a member who recently got baptized organized a little fiesta for yesterday on our last day. Not like the dancing and music kinda fiesta, but a very chill cake-eating kind of fiesta. I really enjoyed it. A few of our recent converts were there as well as a few other members know really well. It was a pretty awesome experience to see these people I didn't know 3 months ago, but now I feel so close to. It was weird, a lot we're crying and everything! Once we got the news that I would stay here and Elder Rivera would go, people were bummed to see Elder Rivera go, but happy to see me stay. I felt the same way, man was I nervous before those tranfers came in. I really do love with area and want to make the best with my last transfer here, I'm lucky to be here.
What else happened? Not too much I guess, a pretty normal Missionary kinda week. But expect more details in my next email home, this week is my first week as senior companion, so should be "pretty....educational." Name that movie...Back to the Future! Correct! Those movies are easily on my top 10 of all time, probably in the top 5 actually. So good. Thanks for all the awesome emails this week, Randy gets the award this week, quality large email from Randy. Good size. So Daniel Dekker got his Mission Call! No way! My good buddy is headed down to Ft. Something, Texas. There are tons of forts down there, and I don't remember what they are called. That is really, really cool that he is headed down there. Tons of the people I teach down here in Torreon either lived in Texas, or have plans to later live in Texas. Could be that me and Daniel teach the same people in the future? Anything can happen. Tell him congratulations for me and to pack extra insulin. He'll just be a year behind me, and it'll be great to see him Thanksgiving of 2013.
Anyways, think thats all I got for you guys this week family. I did have some cool pictures, but another niño erased all of them again. I gotta stop letting kids play with my camera, always delete my picutres. But sounds like everything is good on the home front and everyone is happy, which is great news. I really do feel energized to start this new transfer as senior comp, just hope I can live up to what Presidente thinks of me. Congrats to Kev for finishing the Symphony Bar exam finally, and finishing his 27 year career of schoolin'. That is just way too much school. Okay better get going, have a good family, the church is true, take it easy, and....love you guys!
