How transfers work - March 1, 2010

Alright, so you and Dad want to know about changes/transfers. So what you do is pack every thing up, put it in a taxi and go to a chapel that the Mission President tells you to go to. We have a little devotional and then he tells who is going where and that's when you meet your new companion. Then you get in a taxi and go to your new area. That's basically how it is done. Usually you are always with a Latin American companion, but there is a rare chance of getting a gringo for a comp.. From what I have heard you have one gringo comp. usually during your mission.

My comp. is from Guatemala and is pretty cool. We have one investigator that was praying until like 2 in the morning asking God what church is true and when she finally laid down to go to sleep she heard a voice saying this is the true church. The funny part of the story is she thinks it was her 19 year old cousin messing with her and thinks that he said it. But as we know, it was the spirit- cool little story. We just need to get her Moms permission to baptize her. We have a couple other investigators but we need to work hard this week and find new investigators.

Leaving my first area was a little sad, but what people do here is give note books to others kinda like year books and people sign it and write memories and put pictures and stuff so I have one of those that people write in.

I don't know what mission I am in yet and I probably won't know until July (They are splitting Kyle's mission in July).

I haven't felt any crazy earth quakes.
I haven't played many sports lately, its kinda sad.

This week we had stake conference and so we watch a live satellite broadcast from Utah with President Eyring and 2 members of the quorum of the seventy and they all talked about the 3 most important things we can do as a family and by our self. They are: family home evening, scripture study and family and personal prayers. All 3 of them talked about that because in all seriousness the families here need to be strengthened a lot. They all live together but they are not families they are just a bunch of people in a house.

It's weird to think that every one is coming home from their missions (we have had 3 missionaries come home in the last 3 weeks and we have 2 more coming soon). It doesn't seem like they were that much older than me, but then again I am on a mission also.

It's about time Travis do some thing manly like play with an injury (the doctor cleared Travis to play soccer as long as he wears his brace and tapes his fingers together). That eagle project should have been done a year ago lazy kid (We have Travis's Eagle Project scheduled for March 27th).

Well I think that is about it.

Love you and Miss you.
Elder Bloomfield
