Well the 6 week transfer is officially over! Definitely the fastest transfer of my mission. I am so grateful for the time I had to be with Elder Tarr, he is a great missionary and now a really close friend. We both got transferred out of Carolina, A HUGE surprise. We will both miss this are soooo much. Pa'lante Carolina.

This week was full with miracles, and trials of our faith. A member that has been coming out to help us introduced us to his nephew, Christopher. He is 20 and just got here from the states. He only speaks English, but he came to church and was able to understand a lot of was said. He loved the baptism service of Norman and is excited to learn more. It is so cool to see and find these people with a sincere heart. He has a baptisimal date.
Norman's baptism went well and the spirit was so strong. I was privileged to baptize him. He was one of the most prepared people I have ever met. He said the other day, " Why didn't you guys come over along time ago?! I could have been a member my whole life!” It is so good to see how the Lord really does prepare His children. We are on His errand to go find them.
He is happy with His decision and told me He felt "lighter". So good to hear. When we had his interview he had a friend over at his house. Her name is Frances, they have been friends their whole life, and Norman has been sharing the gospel with her! Turns out 3 years ago she almost got baptized, so we visited her that night and came to church and loved the service. She has a son that is 16, that lives with her and we would have been teaching him this week too. We are so blessed to see and participate in so many miracles!!
I will be going to be working in the zone of Toa Baja, I am not exactly sure what exact city but we will see tomorrow! I love you all so much.
Helaman 5:12 in the Book of Mormon
12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
