It has been great working with you Elder Kasteler!

Week #89
Hey Everyone!

Well this week was alright i guess.. We were both pretty nervous coming into the changes because we didnt really want changes... On Sunday night the zone leaders called us somewhat late at night to tell us who in the zone had changes and it turns out that i do have changes... :´( We were so bummed! Elder Bowyer finished his mission today and goes home and Sister Wood, another member of the district had changes too. So almost half of the district will have changes.. I still dont know where i will be going until tomorrow at the transfres meeting at 11AM! So next week ill have more info about where i am and who my companion is and things like that!It has been great working with you Elder Kasteler!

Well this week was rather normal! One thing that was interesting is that on Tuesday  we had our district meeting but this one had a twist on it! Everyone opted to do this district meeting in English!? There was only one latino in our district but he understands a lot of English and even he was down to do it in English! So we went down a little bit early and decorated the room a little bit with the left over decorations of Elder Kastelers b-day since it was Sister Rasmussens b-day and we surprised her when she walked into the meeting and it was pretty cool! Having the meeting in English was very strange!? I kept having to pause and really think about what i was going to say and how to say it in English since we never really talk about the Gospel in English!? Well that was the first and probably the only time that we will have an meeting in English like that but it was cool! We all took a couple pictures too because it was our last district meeting together before the changes.. It has been a great District and I will miss all of them!

Other than that this week has been pretty hard to contact since we've basically contacted all of Morrope twice!? Now its kind of just like walking around and trying to visit people we've talked to before.. This week wasn't too bad though! We went out with our branch president twice this week to visit and it was pretty cool! We are having trouble finding investigators who will progress but we have been working alot witht he recent converts and less active members of the church and we have had some success with them recenlty which is pretty cool!

I have really enjoyed working here in Morrope!! It has had its difficulties such as when there wasnt water for almost a month and the power shut off more that it should normally but it was awesome! I have really come to have lots of friends here and love the people! Since its such a small town and we know a whole lot of people now from contacting so much it feels cool being in Morrope! I really feel like the branch has become like my family and the members are awesome and it will be pretty sad to leave them but i guess the Lord needs me somewhere else right now! Bye Morrope! You will be loved!

Thats really all for this week.. Nothing too interesting.. More to come next week! I know that the example is a powerful teacher! Everyone is watching us and learning from us and we have to be as light for the rest of the world to see! Matt 5:14-16 and 1 Timothy 4:12! Love you all!
