Letter #28 12/05/11 Transfer to San Jose!!

Hanging out in Cabo!!


Landon the Alien!!

A little tower building time!

Hey everyone! A lot happened this last week. First of all, i'm not writing you from Cabo San Lucas, i'm in San Jose! It's 20 minutes from Cabo. Haha but from what i've seen from the 2 hours i've been here it's going to be a little bit different. For example, write now im writing in a trailer of some old man who has 4 computers that he rents. My area is a little more isolated from the all the stores and everything, but i'm super excited. I was pretty shocked when i heard i was leaving my area. With Elder Carrillo going home i thought for sure that i was going to stay. I won't lie, it was incredibly hard to say goodbye to everyone. I didn't think it would be so hard because i know that i'm going to meet great people in all my areas, but i felt really comfortable with the ward, and all the people in my area. I'm hoping that i'll be able to see some of them again before i leave the baja.
Probably the most exciting news of the week is that B got baptised! He's the friend of V and he was able to stay away from all the temptations of satan and his baptism was amazing! He wanted to do it at 7 in the morning because he wanted to have a clean mind walking in to the water. Him and V are both awesome. I was able to see them progress a ton in the 4 months that i was in Cabo. Saying goodbye to them was probably the hardest out of everyone, but i know i'm going to meet plenty more people and see a lot more lives change in the same ways that theirs did. After B got confirmed the first thing he did was pay his tithing. He's a Stud.
So my new companion is Elder Garcia, another Elder Garcia. He's extremely nice and i'm hoping that we have a lotof success this cambio. We're going to work incredibly hard. This ward has a few problems. The Bishop is inactive, that's probably the biggest one, but i know we're going to be able to have a ton of success if we just work hard and are obedient.
That's awesome that lexi got accepted into the study abroad program!! She's going to be speaking fluent spanish. And I hope everything is good at home. It's weird that it's December right now. It definately doesn't feel like December here, but i'm excited for Christmas! Thanks for all the Christmas music, that has made me very happy. Love you all, and Happy birthday DAD!!!
