Goodbye Benavidez!!!

Hello Everybody,
     Look everybody, my head is just fine ok haha! Just a slight concussion and was in the mission home for a few days haha. Jess, i cant believe you are already going home! It feels just like yesterday where we saw eachother for the first time in the MTC and got in trouble for giving a big hug! But welcome home and its not the end, just the beginning of your next chapter! Dad, is it possible to have a normal outing in our family haha? Mama, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I love you so much and am so grateful for everything little thing you do. You seem to always help me when i need it most, even when thousands of miles seperate us! Jordy, Naes, and Tan, you be looking good for that first day of school. Too good haha! I loved all of the pictures, thank you so much. Paul and Kaylenes wedding looked so great and they both looked so happy. I love it!
    So yes, we received those transfer calls last night and even though i only have 1 transfer here in Benavidez i have been called to leave my area and to go to the providence of San Luis, in the area of Pringles (not pronounced like the chips), and i will be a Zone Leader there. So lots of change and suprises. I wasnt expecting to leave at all, but hey, the Lord needs me somewhere else. So my new companion will be Elder Olaya from Colombia. I already know him really well and he is a great missionary. So i am way excited for this new transfer. A little nervous about going up as ZL, but it will all be good!
    This week we had to make the 3 hour bus ride to Mendoza for a meeting with President Goates which kind of took us out of our area for a whole 2 days, but we were still able to have a pretty good week full of miracles. First of all, Belén got baptised on Saturday which was so awesome. There was a lot of support from the ward and she was so happy. I dont think i will ever be able to get the picture out of mind of Belén crying after coming up out of the water. Truly a special experience for me. Unfortunatly we didnt get in to teach Bruno this week because  he was pretty sick, but he asked us to come by this coming week. Hopefully we can teach him a bit before i leave for San Luis on thursday. Probably the biggest miracle we had this past week was finding Verónica. We saw her two kids (Francisco and Lara) playing in front of the house so i just thought to myself ´´perfect, she has kids´´. So we asked Francisco to get his mom. Verónica came out and we talked to her for a few minutes. She let us in right then, we taught her the Restauration, and after she accepted a baptismal date for the 30 of August. We taught her again a few days later when we passed by with our bishops wife and she loved it. She couldnt come to church yesterday but really wants to next week. We are super excited about her. There are ALOT of problems that we have to fix before baptism, but she has the most important thing right now, a true desire. Its a little sad having to leave right after finding so many good and solid investigators, but it will be leaft in good hands!
   Oh Dad, i was talking to a guy in my ward yesterday who got home from his mission about 3 years ago. But he served in Chihuahua Mexico, so of course we started talking about Colonia Juarez and we found out that he ate dinner once with the Johnsons. Small world!! Well thank you all so much for everything. Happy Birthday Mom and Welcome home Jess! I love you all so much!!
