Sept 25, 2012

Hola everyone,
Guess what? Transfers are tomorrow! We found out today if we're getting transferred or staying. I'm getting transferred to Logan to train Hermana Peña. I'm sad I'm leaving Brigham after we got a baptism date. It's ok, I'll come back for Maria's baptism. :) I'm going to miss serving with Hermana Faasavalu. We had a great time and laughed all the time. She's awesome and hopefully in the future I'll get to serve with her again. There's a lot of changes this transfer. The younger missionaries, meaning the missionaries that have been out less time are zone leaders and district leaders. I think that's cool. haha Anyways, today we are playing volleyball and just hanging out with a bunch of missionaries because I won't be able to come to Ogden as much anymore. Sad day. It's okay, I hope fun people will be in Logan. haha Anyone going to General Conference? I'm going! I hope to see a lot of you there and come up to me to say hi! I'll be going to a saturday and sunday session. I'm not sure what session on Saturday but on Sunday the afternoon session right in front of the pulpit. I'm super excited to hear from our prophet. :)
On Saturday was the cultural celebration for the brigham city temple. I was there all day! It was great! Russell M. Nielsen and L. Tom Perry were there. I saw them from up close. I felt the Spirit at the celebration even though there was a bunch of dancing, The youth did an amazing job dancing and putting everything together. I hope I can see the Boise temple's celebration on TV or something. My advice for the youth is that you should all be in it or participate in it somehow. Your testimony will grow and you'll just see. :) I also got to got to the dedication. It was great! We went to 2 out of 3 sessions. It was a great opportunity to see the temple get dedicated. Boyd K. Packer dedicated it and all I have to say is that he is a funny man. He made us laugh. Well I hope you're all doing great and send me more letters people or feel free to send me packages. ;) Love you guys!
