Man, this last week was absolutely insanely crazy! But it was great. I'm getting transferred this week. I am being released as a zone leader and I get to train!! I am so pumped! I am going to be serving in Escondido in the Palomar YSA ward. (Yes... Another YSA ward. 5th one in a row). I've always wanted to serve there. President told me this is where I will probably finish my mission. I also get to go back and teach at Edson Range, boot camp on Camp Pendleton! I'm super excited for that. I am actually moving into the same apartment I started my mission in!
On Tuesday we spent a lot of time preparing our training for zone conference and stopping by people in both of our wards. Stephanie came back home the day before, so we met with her and got her ready for the baptism
Wednesday we went down to Carlsbad and did car inspections for zone conference. We finished up our training.
Thursday we were at Zone Conference. Our training went super well. They split everyone into 5 groups and the ZL's and STL's each trained on a commandment. We had the Sabbath day. We had to give the training 5 times, so by the last one we almost had it down! It was a really awesome meeting and I learned a lot.
Friday we picked up mail in Vista, did some weekly planning, Stephanie had her baptism interview, and we finished planning the baptism.
Saturday we went to the Demke's. It was sad to be at the ranch for the last time and to say goodbye, but it was good.
Sunday we had meetings almost every hour from 6:30AM til 3:30PM. But most importantly.... STEPHANIE GOT BAPTIZED! It was a beautiful service. She had a ton of support. Her parents and her boyfriend were able to come as well!
I'm very sad to be leaving Murrieta. It's such a blessed place. I love the people here so much, but I can't wait to go to Escondido. I have prayed about it and I know that there are a few more people Heavenly Father has prepared for me in Palomar and I have a lot more to learn. I love my mission and I can't wait for the next chapter!
