May 2 (sorry for the gap -- we'll catch up)

Elder Kakau is back in my ward and had a baptism on Saturday. In the time when he was changing into dry clothing after the baptism itself and before we finished the meeting, Elder Corvalan and I taught the restoration with several non-members there. The spirit came super strong when we testified of the authority to baptize. It went really well. The air conditioning even cut out exactly when my comp started quoting the first vision. It was pretty incredible.

F. is doing doing well. He came to the baptism this weekend and got his interview with bishop and then was at church. We hear the interview went well and he LOVED the YSA (young single adult) Sunday School class we sent him to in church this week. We have one of the YSAs in the ward coming to a lesson with us for him tomorrow night! Bishop basically told him he has to make his decision between the gospel and playing the drums. I think he really liked it.

Transfers are coming up.  People are getting anxious.  President Black announced in the temple this morning that this transfer is goin to be it. Whichever mission you’re in, you'll stay in. So one week and a couple days till everyone finds out what mission they’ll be in when the mission boundary changes come July 1. We’re getting 27 new missionaries in the mission this transfer and 23 the next – a lot!. 

One day this week I was on splits with one of the district leaders (where one of them goes with me and the other goes with my companion), and we were tracting when a 17ish yr old black high school kid opened the door. The DL gave his little intro and asked if that’d be something he'd be interested in and I quote the reply......."Heeeeeaaall yeah it is!" ‘
