Hello my amazing family! It was so good to hear you all and see everyone last night. I really loved
seeing how everyone is doing! Thank you for waiting for two hours to talk to me (you were ready at 5:20 right?!)! Oh wait, there is the time change, I forgot. But still, I am so glad you are all my family. Thank you for everything, and I am glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day present. Tell Megan, "muchas gracias por su ayuda en esta regalo!"

Karla's family
So, we went back home after talking to you all, walked Karla home, and then planned for the night. We gave our numbers to our District Leader, Elder Beardsley, and then started writing in our journals and getting ready for bed. We were just about to turn the light off because it was after 10:30, and our phone rang. Weird right? It was our District Leader! He had been given the transfer list. I am headed to Vista Hermosa Tapachula! They called last night so that we could pack and clean the house because I leave at 2 p.m. today and have to be in the OCC (bus station) at 1 p.m.

Mother's Day call to my family!

So we washed my dirty clothes and hung them up all over the house and the clothes line, and Hermana Rodriguez and I packed up my things with tears streaming down my face. I really felt all day Saturday and Sunday that I would be leaving, but I didn't want it to be true. I have really loved working in this area with my companion, the members, the Elders, and our investigators. I am sad to be leaving, and a little nervous for my new companion and because Tapachula is SOOOOO hot and rains SOOOO much. But I will go where the Lord wants me to go. We listened to that song so much this morning ("I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go"). I felt like the words were speaking what is on my mind!

So that's the big news! We said goodbye to our investigator, his mother, and his brother. I really hope they soon accept this gospel into their lives! It's already changing them. He only needs to go to church a few more times and then he can be baptized!

I love you all. So much. Keep smiling and keep praying as a family and personally!
