Well, I guess I better start with the big news.
Elder Ettmuller and I are staying together for at least one more transfer! That means I will be in this area for at least 6 months... Wow. But the biggest news of all is that Elder Ettmuller and I have been called to be the Branch Presidents here. Yep, that is right, I am a freaking branch president. So, on top of all the missionary work we get to do, we also have the responsibilities of a branch president. All interviews and callings will be done by us. Isn't that crazy? It hasnt been announced yet to the members but the District president already knows and I bet he isnt too happy about this. It was really a humbling experience and I am excited to serve even more here.

My Birthday was pretty normal. Though, it was announced in Sacrament Meeting that it was my birthday (i wasnt expecting that one) but the best was with a recently reactivated member named Cristina. She gave me a tie and thanked me for all that I have done for her. Her change and progress has been amazing and it was a humbling moment for me. Hearing the gratitude of someone who has returned to the fold is a celestial experience on the mission. The elders made me pancakes and even bought frosted flakes ( they cost like 8 american dollars here). Staying with Elder Ettmuller made it even better though.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! I had a great one and I'll be back in the states for the next one! :D
