Sorry but this is going to be a short one. Transfer calls came and I'm outa here. I was really praying and fasting that Elder Finnerty and I would stay for a third transfer together and we even talked it up with the assistants, but it didn't happen. I guess that I need another place to learn. I'm going to the bottom of the mission, in Manteca zone to serve with Elder Grow. I'm excited because he's a spanish missionary so I will be able to practice my spanish with him. But I'm afraid that it won't get any better than this -- this has been the greatest time of my mission. Elder Finnerty is my best friend.
General Conference was this week! I loved it. It was just so great. My favorite talk was Elder Holland's about faith. Elder Holland's brother lives in our ward and we had dinner with him and his wife last week. We asked if they knew what Elder Holland was going to speak about, but they just told us that the only thing they could know was that he was speaking in the Sunday afternoon session. But anyways, I LOVED Elder Holland's address! "Fan the flame of faith!" He told us a similar message when he came to our mission over a year ago. "Keep the flame of faith alive!"
I'm exceedingly sorrowful to be leaving El Dorado. This feels like home! But that's just the way life goes. Love you all!
