Transfers can be a little crazy. We wonder who our new companion is going to be or what area we will be in. We wonder what Heavenly Father has in store for us. President McCune said "ok Pleasant Grove Spanish area, Sister Garces you will be serving with.....he paused for a couple of seconds and said Sister Montanares! Sister Montanares and I both screamed a little bit and ran and gave each other a big hug. I know Sister Montanares really well, we were in the same zone when I served in Provo. She was companions with one of my former companion's, Sister Smith when she was sister training leader. I have gone on exchanges with her a few times and we saw each other a lot when we served in Provo. Every time we would see each other we would say "I could totally see us being companions one day, it is going to happen" and guess what we are companions now! We are so excited to be serving with each other, we already know so much about each other. The end of our first day together we could tell that this was going to be a good transfer and that we would get a long very well!
We also got some referrals this week for new investigators and that is exactly what we need. We just baptized 2 people and now we need to find more people. We are so excited for what this transfer has in store.
We have another baptism coming up the 26th of this month for a 9 year old girl. We got special permission to teach her and her family because there are English speaking and felt more comfortable having sisters. The family has been less active for awhile and want their daughter to be baptized. The whole family has progressed so much since we have taught them. Their daughter, Faith is so cute. We are really excited for her to be baptized.
Family- So I heard that Germany won the world cup! That is awesome! Mom, I bet you were so happy! Charles and family, that's so great that you will be here for the summer...you all have fun together!
I love you all, thanks for everything.
