Final Transfer

Tuesday, August 1-District Meeting was good! It was Sister Parra’s birthday today and Hermana Martinez’s last District Meeting before she dies, so we had a birthday party for lunch and then we had a funeral. Pretty fun! The Kelly's have been doing great with not smoking! Brother Kelly is getting baptized Saturday if all goes well! We have been teaching Peter on and off and we are doing a church tour with him next Tuesday!

Friday, August 4-We talked to a lot of people, and not only that, Art in the Park was getting set up so we were able to talk to quite a few of the people there! We went to dinner with Brother Carson who made Posole and that was delicious! First day in the field memories! We then went to the Kelly’s house for a lesson, we watched some videos and went over the baptismal interview questions with him! He passed in my book, he answered the questions like an active member! That was a miracle! We then tried some more people and came in! Great day!

Saturday, August 5-Today has been awesome! It was Arts in the Park which was fantastic! We were there all morning and we stayed there until lunch, just talking and getting to know people from all over! Fun stuff! There was also a lot of members who were selling stuff and they gave us free stuff! Double fun stuff! We then ate lunch at Evah’s. Triple fun stuff! Then we studied and then we went back to Arts in the Park to talk to more people and talk with our new friends! Quadruple fun stuff! Then Elder Norton and Elder Turner picked us up for a dinner with their members! Quintuple fun stuff! Then we contacted potentials! 6x fun stuff! Now we are home! Super fun stuff great day!

Transfer Calls: I am staying here (shocking) and Elder Yost is going to Fernley 1st and Silver Springs!
My old District! I am getting Elder Roundy! I served around him in Carson, he was the other set of Spanish missionaries there! This will be a great last transfer!

Transferred to Ely

Mon Jun 19 2017

Wed Jun 21 2017
Today was good. I started the day with service with Elder Anderson because Elder Landrin was down for the count and that was fun. I changed and we went to their house for lunch.
We talked to RJ and Olivia…… I am old….. Olivia has been back from her mission for like 3 months now… I asked her when she left… September 2015… Thoughts in my head: “oh, ok, she left like a month before me so it’s not that bad.” Me to her: “What day?” “September 30th” “.......wat…….” Yeah, that super happened.

Today was good. (BTW, We got calls from President. Elder Abbott is training again and I am leaving and am not District Leader yet in my new area.) So it was my last day in church. Today I felt some strong revelation in Sacrament for some things I should do to better prepare myself for the future and that was awesome!

So now we got transfer calls. I am going to Ely 1st Ward, Biking. It will be a big change, it is all English as far as I know, maybe some hidden Spanish people? But yeah, it will be interesting. Ely is a little mining town the size of Yerington with it’s own Stake. It seems out of my comfort zone and that means I will keep growing!

Obedience is the key to blessings. It is how we show our love for our Father and for our Savior. I think that we have inspired leaders and I know that we will be led right when we follow them. I think when we have a prompting to something contrary to what a leader says, really ponder your course of action. As always, we have loyalty to our leaders but our most important loyalty is to the Lord and he will never lead us astray
