Last night we found out about transfers again! (Normally, every transfer is 6 weeks long, but this last transfer was only 5 weeks because President didn't want to have to worry about making changes the week of Christmas. The next transfer will be 7 weeks long to make up for it.) And the transfers area a big surprise! I'm staying in Ajusco for a fourth transfer! And my companion will continue to be Elder Mayoral. And Elder Tapia, who just arrived in our area 5 weeks ago, is leaving! I really felt that I would be leaving the area (and began to pack and get ready for it. Haha. :) ) and I was super surprised with what happened, but I'm excited too. It will be fun to spend Christmas with the many friends I have made here and I know that if I'm staying in this area, it's for a reason. And I'm excited to keep working with the members here and find out what still awaits me to learn and do here.
I have seen progress in this area in my time here. And one visible indicator of this progress is that this Sunday, the branch is switching to a new House of Prayer. There was a need for the branch to move to a bigger building for our Sunday meetings. And after this bigger building could follow a chapel here in Ajusco! :D And we get to use it for the first time for our branch Christmas party this Saturday!
Yesterday, we got to see the Temple Dedication of the Tijuana temple! I LOVE temple dedications! Two weeks ago, we had stake Conference and a member of the fourth quorum of the seventy, Elder Moroni Gaona, spoke! In one week, we have a mission party for Christmas! What a great time of year! Last week, we found out that we will be receiving a visit from Elder Paul B. Peiper to our mission in January! Wooohh!! So much goodness!!! :)
I love you all! Have a great week!
