April 4 in ORIZABA

Well this week was full of surprises! First off it was General Conference week. That's always super cool. Second off we had a baptism of a kid named Saul that I wrote about last week. He has a super strong testimony of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, but he's only 9! He reads his Book of Mormon and the Bible every day, and most important, he knows that Jesus Christ is his Savior. Honored to be able to be his missionary. 

Now onto the super suprising news of the week: Changes. Our mission has been sent lots of sister missionaries.There are almost as many of them as there are elders now, and so changes came. Now there will be sisters in Independencia (Tierra Blanca). Which means I'm not there anymore! My time there was brief, but it was a blast. I'm now in a place that I never thought I'd get to go: Orizaba. I'm in the Reforma ward (don't get that confused with the Reforma stake where I was in Aeroport and in La Laguna while in Veracruz City.) Orizaba is a small-big city built near the 3rd highest peak in North America. It's up in the mountains. Ive only been here for about 4 hours, but it's awesome. I wish  had more than 3 months left so that I could be here more. The best part about Orizaba is that it's not hot. It's cold. And there's lots of rain. We'll see how I do. My companion is Elder Howard. He's from Bountiful, Utah, and he's a stud. We're going to have a blast teaching and working here! Hopefully he is my last companion. 

Anyways that's all for now cause I have NO time, but talk to you all next week!
