And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!
- D&C 18:15

I am getting transferred. Wow. I honestly never thought it was going to happen, and I was going to be okay with that. I have grown to love this Ward and the people of Round Rock, Texas so much. It is kind of weird to think that I just got to this area before Christmas, and now it is almost Halloween. Who would have thought that this would be my home base, 2.0. 10 and a half a months in one area almost makes you feel at home.
So where am I going to? Cibolo, Texas. Sound familiar? It should! That is one of the three area that I was trained in. I was there for five weeks, and I loved it. Now I am hoping to enjoy it once again, with my new companion, Elder V. He is from Tonga and was on their national volleyball team there. It will be fun to work with him. He has been out for a very long time and he is known as one of the hardest working Elders in the field. There's many great things to look forward to in the upcoming weeks.
This week has been wonderful. We found a lot of new people to teach, and it's a nice way to send off the area to the new missionary coming in. We have also made a lot of progress with those who we are teaching. The highlight of the week though was the Old Settlers Ward primary program, which featured almost 100 children betweeen the ages of 3-11 singing about Jesus Christ and teaching us great truths about the restored gospel. It was very well done for consistently mainly of a group of kids who can hardly get a frame of tag going for twenty minutes yet alone be a part of a fifty minute program. It really was beautiful though. All of the songs sounded great and some of the older kids even wrote talks about Jesus Christ, Joseph, Smith, temples, and other things. You can truly feel the spirit come from these little children. It reminds me of one of my favorite scriptures
"And their little children need no repentance... But little children are alive in Christ, even from the foundation of the world; if not so, God is a partial God, and also a changeable God, and a respecter to persons" - Moroni 8:11-12
Today I don't have much time to write. I've been spending much of it packing, since I'm going down to Cibolo tomorrow. Have a great week, enjoy the blessings of the atonement, and enjoy the weather wherever you are. It is still nice and hot down in Texas.
