"Everything is going great here in California! First, transfer news--I am staying here in Escondido, but Elder Snyder (my trainer) is leaving for another city. So, . . . I will be left as the only missionary who knows the area tonight . . . The two sisters who were also in the Las Posas ward with us are both leaving (one is going home), and we are also getting an extra companionship in our Las Posas ward, so we will be getting 5 new missionaries for our ward tonight! I was really lucky to get Elder Snyder as my companion. He's one of the best missionaries in the mission and I have learned a lot from him."
"We had the baptism of Areceli on Sunday night. It was so great--she called us her "ángeles"."
