It was really good to talk to all of you yesterday and hear how things are going. I love you all so much and loved those 40 minutes of talking although it did go by pretty fast. I can't wait to see you all and I know that these extra 30 days will be tough to wait out for you but I know that they will make a huge impact on myself, these missionaries which also leads to helping God's children out here in Fresno and generations to come. In short I know these extra days will be beneficial for God's Kingdom here on earth, not because of what I can do but what He can do with me in 30 days. I promise you I will be working my very hardest so that it won't be a waste of time and that the extra time away from you will be worth it.
We have 3 baptisms coming up this weekend on Sunday. We have that 9 year old girl who is very excited and the 2 teenagers who didn't come to church so we had to push their baptism back to Sunday. We also have transfer boards this week (when we figure out where the Lord wants everyone to go for the next transfer) so a lot of our time will be spent doing that. Then next week we have all the farewell stuff and I stop being an assistant to the president one week from today! Crazy! I really do love doing it and would do it my whole mission but it will be nice to have a change of pace and get out and work all day every day.
Don't forget about the temple day to be set up please! I love you all and continue to pray for you everyday. Keep being a missionary everyday!
