Transfers Week

Heyo everyone. Another week just went right by didn`t it. I can`t believe that this transfer is ending as well. Its crazy, because in a week we`ll have a new president as well. I also have changes and will be leaving Aquiles Serdan. Its always a bittersweet experience leaving an area and a companion. It has been sad to say goodbye to all of the members and investigators here and it`ll be sad to have to leave Elder Estrada here in the area but it`s exciting to be able to have new experiences and discover a new area.

Final week before changes
We had a good week this week. We found another ton of new investigators. On Tuesday we had a lot of lessons with contacts and found 7 new investigators. We always have great Tuesdays here! This transfer every Tuesday we've had a lot of work. We had a great lesson with one new investigator, we taught him the restauration and he was really into it. He just had his bible there in front of him, and you could just see the wheels turning in his mind. It was a cool experience.

Reflection of taking a picture
On Wednesday we had the district meetings which went well. In the afternoon not too much, and a few appointments in the evening. We met with the Mejia Solar Family who we`d been teaching. It was a good lesson but they aren't progressing much. It`s pretty sad to see people who have such great potential not realize it, or choose not to do the things to realize it. 

Thursday we our weekly planning which was riveting as always, and we visited a lot of members that day. We've been really trying hard to get the members involved and to visit their neighbors and friends. On Friday we did some mini exchanges with the Elders in Independence to be able to do a baptismal interview with their investigators. I did the interviews and man, those two were super prepared. It`s such a spiritual experience to see the growth and changes of people that have prepared for baptism.

Saturday and Sunday were pretty normal. On Saturday we found out who has changes and there is a fair amount of people leaving the zone which will be exciting, but I won`t be here for it haha. It will be interesting to see where everyone goes. Also this changes meeting will be packed! President invited to whole mission to come if they want to, which means that everyone will be there! It will be exciting.

Yup, that was our week. I really can`t believe that another transfer went by and I`m leaving. Crazy. Well, have a great week everyone!
