LETTER FROM JORDAN - WEEK 93 (3/14/16)
Well surprise!! It looks like we got some emergency transfers!!!
Well Elder Gubler and I were doing amazing here in San Pedro, but Wednesday night we get a random call from our mission President. He talked to my companion and called him to be a zone leader back in Trujillo and that he would leave San Pedro the next day. We did not see that coming!! Apparently a zone leader in Trujillo had a medical emergency and had to go home for a quick operation and my companion was called to take his place. Need I remind you that we had transfers only 2 weeks ago and this is definitely not a normal thing. We were both super shocked and really sad to have to change, but willing to adjust to what the Lord has for us now.
So over here, I am now with Elder Connelly, a missionary that only has 3 months less than me from Arizona. In fact, he started his mission in my same first zone, so we had already met. They had to close his last area to have enough missionaries to go around so we were both pretty unprepared for this emergency transfer. That also makes it my fourth companion in the same area, with Elder Alles, Elder Chacon, Elder Gubler, and now Elder Connelly. That's not too common.
We took some pictures today in San Pedro's plaza:
Well that's pretty much it. But we are also planning on having at least one baptism this week, so we are looking forward to that! More information to come.
Also there is a restaurant here that's called "Mi Terry" which is pretty legit.
