Transfers are on Thursday so we got transfer calls on Friday. It turns out Elder Tall and I are both leaving the area and 2 new elders will be coming in to replace us. Luckily Elder Tall and I didn't do anything wrong. There is just a lot of stuff happening in the branch that we know about that missionaries should not know. We are leaving to help the branch cool down a little. Luckily we have members working with all our current investigators so we know they will be well taken care of. Now these next 2 transfers are going to go even faster with a new zone and new companion. I'm excited to see more of the mission and meet more missionaries. On Saturday we had the privilege to go to Nauvoo with a recent convert and her non-member son. We didn't go to the temple but we went through the visitors center and went to a few of the old Nauvoo houses. It was a lot of fun! Then at the end we watch Joseph Smith Prophet of the Restoration. It was great and the spirit was strong! One of the temple sisters talked to the non-member son for a while after and gave him a BoM to read and told him to read Enos. He read it as soon as he got home and decided that he was going to read the entire BoM!!! He said to his mom after they dropped us off that he felt like it was all true!!! So excited to see the progress of others in the gospel! This recent convert is the only member in her family and it would be SO great for her to have her son baptized! I'm bummed that I won't be here for Quashawn and Krystal but I know they will be baptized in the future. I love this work and am so thankful for the comfort the spirit brings!
Love Elder Jach-Goates
