Getting up to Speed

Dear family and friends, 

One of the families we have been teaching is an interesting story. These people are so genuine and caring, but the situation is just so ironic. We have an investigator that is preparing to be baptized, her name is Isidora, we have seen such a progress in her reading and learning about the gospel. Her father's name is "John the Baptist", how that came about...I really don't know. Her father is a less active member of the church who we have been activating with the help of his daughter Isidora. We have really seen a change in this family and how the gospel has made them closer. Photo of them to come! 

Things that happened this week: 
  • For the first time in almost a year I got to see my companion from the Missionary Training Center in Mexico, Elder Nielson. I missed that big guy. 
  • We got a new companion, Elder Wertner, who is from California - he had even lived in Pleasanton for a time. He's on a basketball scholarship at UC Irvine. 
  • I'm getting transferred to a different sector. 
  • We bought sushi to celebrate, the missionary on the right is Elder Shobe will be my new companion.
Next week we have 20 missionaries coming in and 30 leaving. Which means a lot of running around for us. This next week is going to fly by! 

Love you guys!
Elder Haddad
