Elder Magnusson's sisters were born on the same day, 3 years apart.
On their birthday this week they will 27 and 30 years old.
hey so this week was a slower one but we were able to get a lot of good things done.
so our 9 yr. old investigator was baptized and it was soo good to see. i was able to do the baptism and it was really special cause i was able to see the whole progress of the family and i was there to complete it as well. the testimony of the mom was so good.i wish i could have recorded it because she talked a lot about the blessings that the gospel has brought into their lives in the past 4 months. the only bad part was the water wasn’t super warm. so when she got into the water her face went from calm to fear so i had to talk her into doing it. for a second i thought she wasn’t going to do it but it was a special moment when she came out of the water.
so we got changes and i’m going to a sector called Paine and it is in the northern most zone called Buin. i’m going to be district leader and i’m going to be finishing a missionaries training. i’m pretty excited. my comp is named elder newell and he is from idaho. i talked to him on the phone for about 5 min yesterday and he seems like a pretty cool kid. so my district is kinda different that usual because there are only hermanas in it. because there are only sisters that means i cant do interchanges with them and that is the best part about being district leader. but its all good. i’m still going to enjoy it. plus in my zone i have a ton of friends so it should be a good last change.
so i started saying goodbye to a bunch of people yesterday. it was sooooo hard. i have been working with them for 6 months and then just like that i had to say goodbye. it is honestly the worst part of the mission. there are days that are hard because all of the lessons fall through and no one wants to talk to us but you don’t remember those days. but the days that you have to say goodbye are hard and you remember them. i’m going to finish the goodbyes today and then tomorrow i head up north early in the morning...
hey thanks for all of the love and ill see you guys in 6 short weeks. the church is true.
