Dearest everyone,Ah, so much to say, so little time! But first, THANK YOU to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and sent kind words! I love you lots and can`t wait to give you all hugs!
OKAY, now to the real news... I got transferred! Oh, it was terribly sad to leave Hermana McArthur and all of the super positive investigators we just found. Saying goodbye to Hna. Karla was also gut-wrenching. I`m not a crier, but I couldn`t hold back the tears as we talked and hugged.
I`m also slightly distracted and distraught because the memory card in my camera suddenly became corrupted and I lost the last ten or twenty photos I`ve taken, including final photos with Hna. Karla, Hna. Doris, and Hna. Sandra that I was planning to print and send to them. Now I`m trying to copy over all the photos I can to my USB while writing.
ANYWAY, here I am in Diriamba! My companion is Hermana Garfield, another gringa! We did divisions once in Masaya, you can search for the photo. Here are a few quick things about the area: 1) It`s huge! And there are hills, which I love! 2) Mototaxis are everywhere, which is surely the best form of transportation ever invented. 3) Our house is super nice. We have a walk in closet, full size fridge and access to a stove, woohoo! 4) The branch is the most supportive group of members I have ever seen! More details on that next week, I`m running out of time! 5) The sky here is gorgeous and reminds me of Loma Linda. The climate is cooler. There´s some cool graffitti in the city part of our area and lots of places to eat.
We`ve had some cool teaching experiences and a Sunday miracle and surprise baptismal candidate, but I`m out of time!
