Transfers usually come out on Friday so I was kind of caught off guard when President Parrela called on Thursday morning. He made a conference call with some other elders and myself to call us as new District Leaders. But he wouldn't tell us where we were transferred to haha, but later in the afternoon we got the other call and I will be headed to Livramento! Fronteira (border) with Uruguay which is super cool because on P-day we can even go into Uruguay a bit because the border is literally one side of the street to another. The only downside is that its a 6 hour bus ride from Santa Maria, that will be tiring.
My companion will be Elder Lailson Silva, who I've never heard of, so probably he started his mission there in Livramento. This will be my first time going to the fronteira half of the mission (Santa Maria, Cruz Alta, and São Pedro are in the other half). Like I said last week its a bit sad to have to say goodbye to everyone here but I'm excited for the new adventure and the new opportunity to serve my fellow missionaries.
Saturday was Baptism Day!
