Transfers (Cazador Week 18)

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well.

So transfers was today. Some weird things happened. Elder Southern is starting his last transfer, and since he just got here we assumed he would stay and finish in El Cazador. The question was whether I would stay or go. But we got the call last night and they told us that Elder Southern is leaving. He is going to the Boca (back to the capital city in the zone where I started) as the companion to two zone leaders. And I got a new companion. His name is Elder Clarke. If that name sounds familiar to you give yourself ten points. He was in my apartment when I was in Parque Chacabuco. He is the third missionary in a row to come here to El Cazador from Parque Chacabuco. It´s really weird because I already know him and lived with him before. He is from Utah and has about a year in the mission. He loves to make jokes and enjoy life. It should be an enjoyable transfer.

Exciting events this week: There aren't a whole lot. Silvia and Tatiana are still doing really well. We talked to them about marriage this week. Silvia has to wait for her husband to get divorced and that is going to take awhile (it´s expensive to get divorced here). Tatiana wants to get married but her husband is a little less enthusiastic, but he said they will talk and think about it.

We found a praying mantis the other day. We were walking and I saw it walking on the street. So we picked it up and brought it home and put it in a jar with some leaves. It is pretty cool, I had never seen a praying mantis before. I have pictures of it I would send but the computer won´t let me.

That´s about all I can think of to say for this week. Sorry, a little bit boring. This transfer went by so fast! I feel like Elder Southern just barely got here and now he is gone. Time really needs to slow down. There is still too much left to do.

Well, I hope everyone has a great week this week. Stay tuned for some more updates next Monday.

les amo,
Elder Gardner
