It's a Boy!

     Well as you know my P-Day wasn't Saturday because I got transferred to the wonderful land of Naranjal!!! :D It's about two hours out of Guayaquil and it's a little town that has a little bit of everything to offer. My companion is Elder Cordero and he is from Bolivia and we get along great. He's my Step-Son! (Missionaries have a sort of lingo describing missionaries that are brand new or relatively new in the mission field. A "step son" is someone who was trained for one transfer previous by another missionary, then given another companion for their second transfer. A transfer is a period of 6 weeks.) Yep! I'm gonna finish training a new missionary! :D But this kid is super smart and he already knows like everything that there is to know. Like sometimes it feels like he's training me XD
     We're working with a family of 4 right now (Grandma, Daughter, and 2 grandkids.) and they are GOLDEN!!!! Their baptismal date right now is for Aug 15 but we're totally gonna move it up because they already have a few church attendances. :)
We had a baptism on Saturday who was Katty A. and she was SOOOO excited to get baptized! Like it seemed like she lived just for that moment in her life!
