So. Last night they informed us about the transfers. I was really worried they were going to transfer me. I'm usually not so worried, but I have a lot of good friends here in the ward (especially converts) and this next transfer is my birthday, and you know. Spending your birthday with a new companion and a new ward would be lamesauce. So. I'm glad they didn't transfer me. :)
We're still in the process of getting Isabel married. Her husband has been working a lot (he drives a taxi...all day every day), so it's been tough to get ahold of him. But we're hopefully going to get things all ready to have the wedding this week or next week.
Our converts are doing well. Any extra prayers for Santiago would be appreciated. He has some friends that are a pretty bad influence on him, and hasn't been very "anxiously engaged" in reading or praying, etc. We've been reading a chapter or two from the Book of Mormon every day, so that's been good. And I know he'll come around, but only with lots of prayer and hard work.
Oh, and happy Semana Santa! The craziest week in the whole year. Gotta love all those Catholic traditions. Speaking of which, have y'all heard anything about the new pope? Everybody is talking about him here. Apparently he's a good guy. Haha.
Anyway...that's basically my week. Oh. I forgot to tell you about the transfers. We're staying, but we'll be in trio with another gringo until Elder Coronel goes home (3 weeks...). Elder Sanford is his name. He's from Arizona.
Anyway. Love y'all. Take care.
P.S. I can't wait for General Conference!!!
