Transfers! Saying bye to Elder Mata

This week was crazy! I got told that Hermana missionaries were coming in my area and that they are going to take us both of the area! Elder Mata is gonna be a zone leader and I am still gonna be in Cristo Rey. I will be in another area in Cristo Rey. I will still be in the same ward and everything, I think I am still in Cristo Rey because I have to show the hermanas their area. All is good I have a new companion and that I already know him, he is an American! His name is Elder Story and he is from Utah. He has 9 months in the misssion and he will be a district leader with me too. He is so cool!
This week we visited a lot of members that Mata said bye to. It was hard for him to say bye because he had been in the area for 10 months so yeah it was hard for him. It was a great 4 and a half months with him but now its time to move on and learn even more with another companion.
This week we also got to hear from a general authority Elder Zivic! He is in the first qourum of the seventy and it was the best thing for us missionaries to hear! He told us what we could do to improve as missionaries. What we can do is we can schedule more baptismal dates with our investigators so that we have goals with our investigators so they can work up to that goal. There was one moment that Elder Zivic asked all of us more than 100 if someone could demonstrate how you could ask the investigators and so Elder Mata volunteered and then I went with him. I remember how strong the spirit was when we did it with other missionaries. It felt like the real deal but after we were done Elder Zivic was saying how we did such a great job. He told us that they felt the spirit when we asked the other missionaries to commit to baptism. It was so great to finally know how to talk and to really be prepared.
This week was great its crazy that I am not with Mata and that I am not in the same area but I know President needs me close by. I love you all and I am so grateful to be here and I miss you all. I hope you all had a great week!.
