Greeting from the Campo of the Dominican
Republic!! I´ve been transferred to a place call Fantino. It falls in
the very edge of the Bonao zone. They funny thing is, I´m closer to La
Vega then Bonao....Anyways, I´m in the middle of no where. Fantino is a
tiny town that is seriously in the middle of a ton of rice fields!!
The nearest missionaries are 30 minutes away, and I have to take a bus
for 2 hours to get to any sort of Zone Meetings. So yep, I went from
the big city of Santiago, to one of the most campo areas in the
mission. I´m excited to see how these next few months go!
new companion is Elder Mendoza. He is from Mexico and has about 4
months in the mission. He just finished training, so I´ve got the
opportunity to help him continue learning about the mission and becoming
a veteran missionary. He´s really nice and has a lot
of excitement to work and build up the kingdom. I´m really excited to
work with him and see what we can do here in this little town of
Fantino. Wish me luck, haha!!
This past week has been a very
interesting week. We´ve spent the past few days saying goodbye to
people and the lovely area of Gurabo. I will really miss that area.
After 8 months, it´s kind of become my home and I feel like I´m saying
goodbye to some wonderful people. The hardest person I said good bye to
was David! He has become a life long friend over the last few months.
I´m so very grateful I was able to help that man find the gospel and
change his life! I will sure miss him, he is a good guy! We even had a
little good bye party last night with Dr. Pepper and Nachos. Yep, he´s
a keeper!! I hope that he will continue in the faith and be the strong
member and leader God knows he can be!
grateful for the chance I have to be a missionary! Last night, as I
said goodbye to David, I gained a witness that missionary work changes
peoples lives. I´ve witnessed the gospel changing the life of a son of
god, who has found his Shepard once again. It is a huge opportunity to
be a missionary and I thank Heavenly Father everyday for the things I´m
doing, learning, and the person I´m becoming. I hope everyone who has a
chance to serve a mission will take the opportunity and do it!
Have an excellent week everyone!!
