Ok Family and Friends,
So i am here in the office right now and it is going great here. But I am extremely tired in every second of every day. But ok, so I will walk you through the last week. So I got a call from President Prince on Saturday night at about 9 oclock when we had finished the baptisms. He called and told me that Elder Avalos(old AP) was going to leave and was going to BV. So he called me asking me if I thought that I was ready to join the new team in the office as the new assistant. Which I told him I am, and I would be honored. So that was intense! Went home and packed my bags, because I
had to leave the next night at about 3 in the afternoon. So...that was nuts. went to church and took pictures with the whole world. And then basically didn't have any time to say goodbye to anybody, which really was sad.
But then got on a bus by myself......that was weird cuz as a missionary we are always in pairs of two, for a total of about 14 hours......not a fun bus ride. And finally got to Cali at about 430 in the morning. Got in a taxi and then went to the apartment of the office and went to bed for an hour.

Then the next morning woke up and went immediately went to work in the office. And then at midday we had an office meeting that went well overall. And then we had to go and drop off Elder Jara at the airport. but before we ate at a place called Crepes and Waffles. It was delicious and ya, amazing! So then, we went back to the office and went to sleep for a couple more hours till the morning. Woke up and on Tuesday we had to go and take Elder Jara to the Airport and then pick up the new elders at the same time. That was cool, it was a group of 5 elders and they all seemed pretty cool and excited to work. We did all of the normal things. Got them all ready to serve and everything. And then went to Cristo Rey and did all of the cool things.
