From Nascena to Canetena (July 28th)

Dear Presidente Mc Ginn, 
Thank you so much for the opportunity that you have given me to serve in Nasca. It has been amazing to teach there, all the converts and rescues that I have been able to see progress. I have seen so many miracles in that area As the leaders took in our change, we spent 2 hours on sunday talking about all the things to improve and change in Nasca. all the ways that the leaders are going to take part in visiting. Now that the elders are in charge of all the houses in their and our old area, the branch set high baptismal and rescue goals for August and Saptember. And now in Canete, my companion and I have the chance to take all our efforts and talents and put them in to action. This area has amazing potential, both with the leaders as well as the less actives and recent converts. I promise to do everything I possibly can to leave this area in a better place than I found it. I have already met amazing people like Annie ,a recent rescue with her recent convert husband preparing ot receive a patriarchal blessing, as well as Eduardo, our ward misison leader. and a great future investigator names Carlos. This transfer will be filled with miracles!

So this week has been  one of the most interesting in my whole misison. Me and Hma. Tuquerres are finishing planning Saturday night, waiting for the call for the changes. I am postivite that Hma. Tuquerres is going to be changed to  Canete, Ica, another area, because she already had 4 months in Nasca. And I was ready to be in charge of the area with my new companion, maybe even be training for my last transfer. And then the call comes. First Elder  Rogers says I have a change to Canete. And then, Hma, Tuquerres is also being changed to Canete, but a part called Mala.I We both just kinda sit there in shock for a second, not knowing what to think or do. we send a message to our converts, giving them the strange news, and then, I just start writing letters to each and every single one  I can remember. I had no idea that I was going to be transferred, and our area was going to be left in charge of the elders. But I went about just sending as many letters and clothes, whatever things I could to each and everyone to express my appreciation and gratitude. The next day is a whirlwind of planning and turning over everything to the elders, who are now going to be working in a super huge area. We have lessons, despididas(goodbyes), everything at once. I finish packing I think around 1 am, and we have to arrive at teh horrible Soyuz at 5:30. I have no idea where all my phyical strength came from, but I can say that I will never forget these past few days. I was thinking about Isiah 58:13, 14, that say that Gods thoughts and actions are much higher and grander than our actions, and Naphi when he says he doesnt understand the meaning of all things. Although I may not understand all the whys, I can trust that  God has a plan for me, Nasca, all our converts, less actives, and investigators that we began to teach and help. Esp. Hmo. Agusto and sister Mirella), and know that his plan for me is much bigger. I have trust he knows exactly what he is doing, and that I need to be in Canete with Hma. Freyre, my new  and last companion. I couldnt be more grateful to have her. She may look gringa, but she is half Cuban, goregous, and we are going to get along very swimmingly. (well, we pretty much already do.) 
I am so grateful to everyone for all their love, support, and letters today! Keep on trustin in Gods plan!
