I Feel a Change Coming - Ames 9/27/11

So i really dont konw how i feel about transfers coming up, its mixed emotions. They are still two weeks away, but it still seems so close!
I love it here in the Gila Valley so much, and i dont really want to leave at all, but at the same time it would be fun to change it up a bit. and see other parts of the mission.
This week has been a turn for the better =). We started teaching that highshool kid. I extended my very first baptismal commitment! and he accepted! he then accepted october 22
for his date! i was so freaking stoked! we have met with him four times now, all with his friends who are members, and he came to church yesterday as well. You can really tell that this kid knows that what we are teaching him is true, He even told us how he came to know that the book of mormon was true and how he recived answers to his prayer. Amazing! Unfortunatly transfers are before that... he is just one of the many reasons that i want to stay here in the valley. We also have a less active family, well they are pretty much active again, but they just started taking the temple prep class, and they are super excited about getting sealed in the temple. The work has just gotten so awesome this last week. The lord really does have his hand in all things. Regardless of what it is.
Mom: Yes we recive the Ensign. And we have been told that we are going to be getting a ton of extra copies this next month so we can hand them out to people. (I have only seen this issue, i havent gotten my copy yet)
Dad: isnt missionary work just so much fun? did that experience remind you of being back in england?
Maren: You better cheer loud at the marathon this weekend, the cheer section will be two members less this year. Make me proud. haha, remember at the ironman, when we would yell the peoples names, and they had no idea who we were or why we would know their names haha. good times :D
Love you all so so much!
