Yes, this week was transfers, I will be leaving the College Park Ward, and going to the Glenn Dale YSA Ward... not really sure what to think about that yet, President must have a sense of humor I guess haha. It should be good though, from what I have heard there are a lot of good things going on with the ward, and we are teaching some cool people.
This last week was a good week for us though. It is funny sometimes how things work, we have been doing our best to get in with the ward members and leadership, because we feel like there is a separation with our efforts and theirs, so we were trying combine our efforts. We have been trying to do that for this whole transfer, and then out of no where this week, they reorganized our bishopric, and that decision wasn't even final until the Saturday afternoon before church. So it will be a good opportunity for the elders that are there now to have a fresh start and hopefully build good relationships with the newly called leadership of the ward.
Other than that, we had a cool experience this last Wednesday with a lady that I think I told you about her before, but she has 5 kids, and she is on the go all the time, so it is really hard to find a time to meet with her. While we were there on Wednesday though, we were able to talk with her, and show her how the gospel is not something that is going to further complicate her life, but it is going to help with all the stresses and troubles that she is currently facing. Hopefully they will be able to continue teaching her! But that is about all for me this week! I can't believe that Jordan is home... crazy! Love you guys! Have a great week!
