Hey Mom & Dad!
How is the new job Dad?
I hope you are enjoying it.

How’s Seminary going mom?
Coats, sweaters? I hope not. I really truly hope it doesn’t get that cold down here, but I haven’t seen it drop below 72 yet, so I think I’ll be ok.

This week has been kinda nuts, a lot of appointment fell through or cancelled or just didn’t show. So that is always fun.  But the high point of the week by far was Joe's baptism.

The picture is of Joe and my Comp and me and the Spanish Sisters that passed him off to us.  Hermana Calloway, Hermana Pipkin, Joe, Sister Thompson, Me
El Paso Zone Conference

Well, we got transfer calls last night and this next transfer should be interesting,
Both Sister Thompson and I are staying but we are going to be in a trio. Again.

My comp is really upset and worried, but i feel completely fine.
Both of us have had bad experiences with a trio before and it doesn’t help when all the other missionaries are like "ouch a trio, that hurts"

But, it will be good. I really do feel like it will be fine. I have a sneaking suspicion that i may be playing peace keeper between my two comps for the entire 6 weeks, but that will be fun....
We have had some fun experiences this week. Last night we ate dinner with a lady who didn’t speak any English at all. Luckily my comp speaks a bit of Spanish and her kids spoke a bit of English, so it was ok.
We got another amazing investigator this week. His name is brad he is really smart and ready for baptism, but he doesn’t think he is. He has a baptism date for the first week of December, hopefully he will be ready and excited by then :)

This picture is of my district. We were all wearing vampire teeth (provided by Elder Guymon) and it’s so so so funny, But the person who took all of the pictures lacked the ability to focus the cameras. She took probably about 10, all different cameras and all of them where blurry.
I know you know a bit about Photoshop. Is there any possible way to clear it up at least a little?

 Thanks for the money. I didn’t get as much as I needed or hoped for. My comp was done shopping. I’m going to try and make what I have last for the last couple of months.

Love you!
