Letter #98 08/20/12 New Companion!

Hey family,

great to be writing again this week.  good to get your emails today!

its been a pretty busy week,  they called us wednesday and told us
that elder muñoz had transfers!  which is wierd,  aparrently there
were some problems in another zone in the mission and the president
had to move some elders around so elder muñoz went to Coatzacualcoz.
  and now my new companion is elder Rodriguez.   He`s a great guy.
lots of experience in the mission.  in fact, he´s going home in two
weeks.   ha.  he has 23 and a half months in the mission!  crazy eh?
i´m going to be his last companion.    He´s from northern mexico, i
can remember what the state is called, its not very well known.   but
we´ve been getting along super super well.   but he actually didnt
arrive till friday afternoon, so i spent two days alone in my area!
it was interesting.  i had a ward member work with me so i wouldnt
have to go work in a trio with the zone leaders, but for two days i was
without a real companion.

We´ve been working super hard. and we found an awesome investigator
named k, who´s husband is an inactive member,  but she told us
from the contact that she wants to be baptized!  that was so
awesome.  ha.  she should be baptized the 8th of september.

As for other investigadores, we had a ton in church this sunday, but
we´re struggling so that they can progress.  a lot of them are working
on getting married, (birth certificates/drivers license problems),
and others have super dificult schedules to work around.  but i´m
confident that in the next few weeks we´re going to see a lot of
results.     our goal is to be able to baptize someone before elder
rodriguez goes home!

yesterday was nice because we got to go see the special program for
pres. monsons birthday!   we brought some investigators and some
recent converts, and it was a little weird because all the music was in
english, but i think they liked it.  i really enjoyed it haha.

today we played basketball and watched a movie with the zone leaders
in the morning and have been enjoying our preparation day.  the
members here are super nice.  theres a lady in our ward that offers to
wash our clothes for us!  i feel super spoiled to be ending the
mission here.  its a great area.  the foods great, the members are
helpful, and there are many people to teach!

 -- to answer your question, -- even though i had thought that they
were going to transfer me one more time before i finish my mission,
i´m almost 100% now that they arent going to transfer me, and i´ll be
finishing my mish here.

also-- glad to hear that bens getting everything ready for when i get back.
 i´m super pumped for winter semester and to be back in school.  to go
to institute and everything.  we´re going to have a lot of fun!

well fam.  i gtg.
love ya´ll and hope ya have a great week
-elder lloyd
