I Don´t Know Enough About Colombia to Make A Joke

Email written: 1/12/16

Transfer time and my new companion is Elder Troya from Colombia and it´s fun/scary because we arrived in the mission together so neither of us has a great idea of what we are doing haha. More good news is that one of the new elders in the ward is ELDER HOLTRY!!! That´s right my MTC companion is with me in the ward so it´s going to be fun. 

I am going to miss Tex-Mex a lot because of all the miracles that we saw and all the lessons we learned. We got to end the transfer good with the baptism of Kiara. She is the cousin of Axel and slowly we are completing the Mercado Family. It was really special to see the change in Kiara when 4 weeks ago she didn´t even want to listen but thanks to her Grandma, Axel, and the Ward she was really happy Sunday.

The thing that struck me the most is she still was a little worried but when she came out of the water she looked up and said "Gracias. Gracias. Gracias" with a really big smile. That´s the power of change baptism helps bring.  I am really excited for this transfer.   -Elder Steele
