Sorry for writing late. we had a conference yesterday and i didnt get time to write! wow tan is looking pretty tan. haha didnt mean to do a play on words like that, but thats just how it worked! haha it is weird to hear all the people that are getting home from thier missions, and the ones that are getting ready to leave.
This week was a pretty good week. we had 5 people come to church and they all loved it! I also had a conference with president parreño yesterday. it was kind of like his good-bye one for all the zone leaders in the mission and it was really great! we talked alot about the importance of being a missionary and how short our time really is! He asked us what "coming to Christ" really means, because it is the purpose of a missionary. anyways "coming to Christ" is a 3 word phrase to explain the plan of salvation! i really enjoyed it and got some good pictures with hna. and pres. Parreño! Our investigators are doing well so thank you so much for praying for them.
So to answer some questions, they took our 2 elders because the wave of the age change is coming to an end! 15 missionaries left this transfer, but only 5 came, and next transfer 20 leave and only 5 come again so i guess there will be some more areas closing as well! so pres. parreño is still the pres. until about the end of june. i guess that is when we will meet the new pres. and my comp. is a pretty good guy, but i dont get much time with him becuase we do divisons a lot so i guess i have to get to know him a little better, but with time im sure ill get to know him better.
Anyways speaking about time, i guess i have some news. well I talked to the secretary of the mission yesterday and he informed me that it is starting to get complicated with missionaries extending now and there were some missionaries that had problems with thier paper work that extended but then had to get sent home because the country wouldnt allow it, so to get rid of the problem they just kind of stopped letting missionaries extend unless you have enough days on your visa... guess who doesnt have enough days! well its me, and i have to come home on my original date so that is kind of sad, well actually really sad, but its give me more of an urgency to know that my time is even more limited! oh and im not sure why, but my package already arrived so thanx for all the birhtday wishes you sent and all the stuff! i love you guys soo much!! haha well my time is kind of up, but i love you all and thanks for everything you do and have done for me! i love you all!!
Love Elder Taysom
