It's not so much "whatever that means." It's whoever...

It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months...You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Spanish language... "

Hey all. How's life? Mine is pretty beawesome I guess. 

This week we had a lot of investigators in church. It was great. Then afterward, that same day, we had a Ward Family night, where everyone invited their friends and family that aren't members. We watched a piece of 17 miracles, which is AMAZING...I actually haven't ever seen the whole thing. But people always comment on how incredibly amazing it is. I really need to see it one of these days. 

Anyway, today are the cambios. Dun Dun DUN... I'm staying here. With my same companion. Because I'm training, so I have to finish teaching him stuff, and then they'll probably change us. Hehe. They did however, change the Elders in Fontana. The other companionship that lives with us. Elder Jaime is going to Bucaramanga, and Elder Acuña is going to Peru (he finished the mish). mision, la mision...

The other piece of news is that a week from today, we're going to move apartments. That'll be fun. Apparently the new apartment where we're going is much nicer than the one we've got now. It's on the th floor...but it has an elevator. So we won't have to do so much exercise. Haha. Being on the 5th floor is fun sometimes...but it gets a little tiring after a while... Especially when we get home super tired...and then still have 4 flights of stairs to climb. :P Anyway, it'll be nice to move. :)

Our investigators are progressing well. We've been working with the Alvarez family, a family where the mom is inactive, the son comes to church, and the dad isn't a member (and there's the little 2 year old sister. She's a future member of the church too). Yesterday, they all came to church! :D Yay. :) Jorge is the dad't name. He's cool. And he likes to practice his English with me. He just needs a little more testimony, I think. Although, they've been reading and praying as a family, so we're just trying to him to pray on his own. Church attendance was a big step, though. It made me really happy to see them all there. 

Anyway, life's good. I'm hangin in there. :) 

Take luck and care when you have it,

Elder Cannon
