Staying in the Office...

Transfers are tomorrow!  I´m not going anywhere, haha.  Neither are Elder Rivadeneira or Elder Bingham.  Only Elder Olmedo, but that is because he is finishing his mission and returning home.  My ´´son´´ Elder Gomez is going to train this transfer and also be a district leader! My boy is growing up! haha.  On Wednesday we are supposed to have a worldwide missionary meeting with Elder Oaks.  It is going to be some kind of international broadcast to ALL missionaries.  We´ll see what that is all about.  

Last Thursday I had another trip to immigration.  But we only had to register three missionaries for residency.  We also had a mini missionary with us there.  He is from Zambrano (one of my old areas) and he was taking out his passport so he can send in his mission papers! Exiting!  While we were there, there was another elder waiting for his companion. While he was waiting, he took out one of those plastic recorder flutes and started playing church hymns...just in the middle of the waiting area in immigration haha.  I thought that one of the workers was going to get annoyed and tell him to stop, but they didn´t.  That was fun, and he wasn´t bad at all.  

On Saturday night, we get a text message at 10:30 from the 1st counselor in the bishopric asking if i could give a talk the next day! Talk about late notice, but it was fine. haha  It was open topic too.  I decided to talk about Charity because I like to talk about how we all need to serve and love each other and be happy.  Yay!  If you want to learn more about charity you should go study Moroni 7 and 1 Corinthians 13.  

Have a great week!
