I hope you all had a wonderful Ano Nuevo! So much happened this last week it's kinda hard to believe that it was only one week. This week our District Leader finished his mission, after 26 months he finally went home. And it was interesting having to deal with all of the craziness that happens when someone goes home before transfer day. For New Years we had dinner with some of the Elders recent converts and we had the BEST TAMALES EVER!!!!!!!! So good!!!!! We had left over tamales for dayz!!! So good! We also had a bunch of really awesome lessons through out the week and I am so excited to see the area progressing!!! :)
We also had some "crazy" weather here. You would've thought that Kansans had never seen snow before with the way they drive! So we've been bundling up pretty tightly this week to try and stay warm. It definitely doesn't snow as much as Utah but it sure does get cold here in Kansas! So Saturday night we probably got 3-4 inches of Snow and they canceled Church!!! We were like "okay, makes since with the Spanish branch because they never leave their houses when it snows. But everyone else?" Out of the 4 wards that meet here in
Wichita only one of them wasn't canceled. So you can imagine how packed that sacrament meeting was. It was fun to go to Church with all of the other missionaries in this area but it was so weird because it was a ward full of old white people. I felt way out of place! Hna Wilks and I were like "We need our Spanish Branch!"
So this week is transfer week. Hna Wilks was pretty sure that she would be leaving but I guessed right and she will be staying here with me another Transfer. We're both pumped to be here another transfer and we are determined to see miracles and become the best missionaries that we can be this transfer! I hope you all have a wonderful week and are always able to recognize the tender mercies of the Lord everyday!
Con Mucho Amor,
Issac (the dog) hitched a ride with us. He had followed us for 4 blocks until we got to our car so we figured that we should probably bring him back to his owner! :)
