Oct 21 2010 Transfers are coming

Hi Everyone,
It has been awhile since I wrote a blog for you. Sorry!! It's the end of my 3rd transfer right now. I don't even think I told you all who my companion is! His name is Elder Taylor. He is from Louisiana! Pretty alright guy. he has been out just 3 weeks longer than me. Spanish has been pretty rough this transfer because we are both still learning. We have three baptismal dates now, but they are all set for after the next transfer and I won't be here):. And all three of them are really solid.
But I am getting transferred!! I find out where this Thursday. Pretty crazy. they did tell me I am going to be senior companion again! That is also very crazy, I went from being trained to senior. I will be put with someone who is fluent in Spanish. So that will be very sweet! The hardest thing out here has been teaching people and finding there needs and of course Spanish. And both of those together are way hard! This last District meeting they had my companion and I give training on finding needs by asking questions and listening. It all really comes down to the Spirit. If we have the Spirit with us when we teach we will be in great shape! Speaking of great shape... I am getting a pretty ugly stomach! Ha Ha. I get fed so good out here! I used to eat what ever I wanted back home, but I guess I was playing tennis a whole bunch. I do still have a year and a half left out here, it shouldn't be too hard getting back to where I was. (: We exercise every morning but only for 1/2 hour and I don't thin it adds up to all the food I eat.!
Anyway I love it out here. I know this is where I am suppose to be right now and there is no place I would rather be. The Church is true and I love finding people to share it with. the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real and if you allow him to help you, he will. The Book of Mormon can truly change your life and has all the answers. i know that when we pray we are speaking to our Heavenly Father and if we do it sincerely with faith, believing that he will answer us, I promise that he will.
I love you all and I hope all is well! I miss everyone and I will see you in 18 months.
