January 12, 2015: Anticipation

It's tangible. We always know who's leaving and who's staying for transfers by Sunday morning, but it is now 11:00 a.m. on Monday and we haven't heard diddley squat, nor any other kind of squat for that matter. I'm sitting on nails, figuratively of course.
It's been a fun last week of the transfer, with lots of meetings and exchanges and bonding time. We had entrevistas con Presidente también, and those were fantastic. We're really just shooting for maximum excitement and ánimo for these last 3 transfers. As Elder Lindsay oft would say, "Let's GO."
Other highlights; Elder Hancock and I were basically the guests of honor at Cassandra's 12th birthday party. They put together and entire carnival out of random stuff in their back yard.
Being a missionary is the best!
Also, I've become a professional at climbing into a filthy brown, plugged up baptismal font using garbage bags to shield my legs from the bacteria-infested sewer backwash. Once again the plunger did nothing and we had to move the other Elders' baptism to another chapel. But lots of people came and it was fantastic.
Confirmed: Elder Oaks is coming the end of January, along with Elder Lynn G Robbins and maybe someone else. We'll be having a mission-wide meeting, the first since I've been here. Yipee!!!
Scripture: Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, andsaid: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictionsand will give unto you success.
The Lord will comfort us, always, if we just keep our chin up and press onward. There is literally nothing that can keep us down. How cool is that???

This is what a Bodega looks like. This is where we get all of our ties.
Love ya!

-Elder Dylan Young


What'd y'all think???
