July 5, 2011

Dear Family,
Well we have had yet again another really good and interesting week! We have had a lot of success in the past few days with the members giving us people to teach! Both with the hispanics and with the english members. We went on an exchange with some missionaries in a town called columbiana. Baurer served there once upon a time. It was really good and fun. We also had a zone leader council meeting the day before the exchange on tuesday and that was really good. We learned a lot of things that would help us and we also thought of new things that we could improve on it was a good meeting.
President came down on Friday to talk with us about the area to see how the spanish and english work was going to know where he needed to put the missionaries that he has since transfer is this week. He took us out to this place to eat called Archilbalds BBQ. It was pretty good. It is just a hole in the wall restaurant that I would never go unless someone took me to show me what it was like. It was good though! I was surprised.
We had a good lesson over at the Bakers house on saturday. We had Luis Fernando and German over there. Luis is a new member and german is his friend. We had dinner of hambergers and hotdogs, with potato salad, chips, watermelon, kool-aid and million dollar dessert! It was really good. Then after we ate we had a lesson and we invited german to be baptized and he said yes! So now he has a date for the 30th of July! I am really excited! Then the next day he came to church. He had already been a few time but it is just good to see people changing thier lives to become better.
We got transfer calls yesterday and we found out that both Elder Chow and I are getting Transfered. It was quite a surprise because of all the good work that we have been having lately especially with the spanish people. It has been rough but I am sure that the Lord knows what he is doing. Something I have realized on my mission is that the Lord wants everyone to go to heaven and he wants to do what is best for them. So us getting transfered isn't cuz the president has something up his sleeve or doesn't like us or doesn't know what was going on in the area. It is becuase that is what the lord knows needs to happen to grow the kingdom of God. So I am excited to see what happens. I will let you know next week!
Everything is going reall good though! I love you all and hope that you are all safe! Hope to hear from you soon.
Congratulations Buddy and Sara on the blessing of Beau! He looks like a great kid!
Love ya!
Love Elder Haws.
