Hello hello!
   Well transfer call where last night... but before we get to that... I had the opportunity to baptize 4 people on Saturday. The C. family is awesome. The mom is already a member and so is the oldest boy. He was baptized when he was 8 he is 16 now and hasn't really been to church. So I got to Re-Activate 2 people (mom and oldest son) and baptize 4. There are 8 people in the family. Mom (member) Dad (Nonmember) Justin (member) Christopher (Nonmember) Courtney (non member) Breanna (nonmember) then Bailey (Not old enough) and little Justin (Not old enough). I really have connected with the Dad and really helped him. SO we baptized the dad Christopher Courtney and Breanna! Thats right 4 people!!!! The best part was that they are all united together now! Oh! and on Sunday they got the holy ghost and the 3 guys (Dad, Justin, and Chris) all got the priesthood!!!! Is is sooooo awesome. They have grown so much! And they have nothing but smiles!
   ok As for transfers...
    Well... We where pulling in for the night I was totally BEAT and there was a call from a number we didn't know. We thought is was a missionary calling to make a "fake Transfer call" it's a trick where you call and ACT like Pres Perry and tell the other missionaries they are getting transferred Don't know if that makes any sense. But it ends up being pretty funny...
   Any who, So we answer the phone... And the voice on the other line said Hello this is Pres Perry... and it actually was! So he told Elder Swanson that he is staying here and told him to give the phone to me... Long storry short President said I am going to be a Zone Leader in Chesapeake! AHHHHHHH!!!! that's CRAZY! I couldn't believe it. I am Excited and reallly nervous. It;s a lot of work but i am so stoked to do it. So all i know is that i will be moving down there on Thursday so that will be a new address. I don't quite know it yet but i will let you know next week. I will let you know the whole scoop next Monday.
   I am loving it the weather has been rainy but soooo soooo nice, 65-72 degrees all week. But it rained for 3 days straight!. 3 days without stopping! I couldn't believe it. Not one second without it coming down! Oh but the next few days where so good. I loved the whole thing.
   I am Sad to leave the area. But hey, Where i got there it was totally dead and we brought it back to life.Heck, we baptized a family and have 3 more really close too! So I am ok with leaving.
   How are things back home. It was cool to here all the miracles that hapened to mom when she was getting ready to leave... As a district leader Every night i get to talk to all the missionaries in my district and every night I had them tell me the miracle of the day. They are all around us we just have to look for them.
