Transfers (Jan 18, 2011)

Well this was transfers week! It is crazy to think that I have been serving with Elder Klabacka now for 3 months. It was a really fast 2 transfers. As far as transfers go. I am going to be staying here and receiving a new companion. Elder Klabacka will be going somewhere else. They do transfers a little different now and we don't get to find out who our new companions are or if we are getting transfered where we are going until the day of...so I will let you know who my new companion is on Monday! The reason that we weren't able to E-mail yesterday was because of Martin Luther King day, Which was really cool to be able to celebrate while living in the actual town where all of that started. It is so wierd for me to think that Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King all lived in this town of Montgomery. It was really neat.
We had a pretty good week as far as the work is concerned. I was supposed to sing in our sacremant meeting but they ended up skipping it which was alright with me. I'll just have to do it another time. Our Bishop gave a really good thought on his mission for the last 15 minutes or so on the joy of sharing the gospel. So what we did for our sunday school class (because we are the teacher) is we talked about how we can share the joy of the gospel because half of our members are recent converts and just don't feel like they know enough to help out. It was really good right after we had two members come and tell us of two people that we have been trying to work with but haven't been able to because they don't have rides and the members haven't been helping us drive them to church and stuff like that, Now though they peomised us they would be there every week with our investigatores. It was a really good lesson.
We are working with this really good guy named Octavio. He is super humble and is way nice. We gave him a calender with a bunch of little scriptures that he can read every day and he has been reading them! It is great! He is gaining a testimony we feel of the Book of Mormon and knows that it isn't another form of the Bible. Not many people catch that. However he left town for 9 days so we are a little nervous. We are hoping he will still read and do what is right.
Things are going really good! I'm healthy, I'm happy, and I am getting into shape. The other day we rode our bikes 30 miles. BOY it felt good.
I love you all and hope you are all doing good and are staying safe and loving the time that you get to spend with one another! Enjoy what you have while you have it and make it a great day!
Love Elder Haws!
