Week 93

Well this week was crazy. So much moving around and traveling and stuff. Oh and we had transfers yesterday! We had two zone conferences last week that we went to. One was down South. We headed down Monday night and stayed all day Tuesday and came up Tuesday night. We got home a little before 11 on Tuesday night. We had another Zone conference in the north on Thursday. We got to give an hour long training in both of them about how to teach using the pamphlets we have been given. It was super cool and it went pretty well. I enjoy training and teaching people even when it is a room with 100 people in it. We spent a lot of time last week planning for transfers too. We had a lot of moving parts. On Monday we picked up 11 new missionaries from the airport. Wanna hear a funny story? Good. At the airport this guy walked up and started talking to us. He is a member from Iowa. He was on the phone with his wife and asked us about a missionary in our mission who his wife is like 2nd cousins with. Well I am also closely related to that missionary, Elder Turner. So I asked if his wife knew any Carruths and she said her Grandma's maiden name is Carruth! Small world. Crazy stuff. The new group of missionaries are all awesome. Super solid and powerfu. They are going to great things in this mission and in their lives. Yesterday was trasnfer day. It is a really cool feeling watching the trasnfer van leaver with a ton of missionaries on it and to think of all the hours of work and planning that went into that one moment of time. It is cool and it all inspired by the Lord. All glory be to Him. We had a cool experience this week with Alana. She has been doing super well and progresing in the gospel. She feels it and knows it is true. She was going to get baptized today actually. But last week she had an unexpected death in the family. When we got to go teach her and ask her how she was doing she told us that she had been praying a lot and that she was at peace. She said she is excited to came to church and pay tithing. She did come to church this week and participated a lot. She is doing amazing and will get baptized sometime in the next couple weeks. We are really looking for new people to teach. The work is going great! I love the Lord! I love my Father in Heaven! I love all of you!
