I've been transferred

Hola Hola Hola

Como estan todos? Anoche presidente nos llamo y nos dijo
adonde vamos. Voy a ir a Oakley, el otro lado de la mision.
Es un area de Spanglish, y voy a estar con Elder Riqulme
(es de Chile, cerca de Santiago y ahorita el es uno de mis
lideres de zona) y tambien un otro misionero. Estara
interesante, un gran cambio de caldwell. Estoy
emocionado(sp?) por eso pero estoy un poco triste por
que una de mis investigadoras, no va a bautizarse este
transferencia, pero siento que ella va a bautizarse la
proxima transferencia. Pero yo se que Dios quire que
me vaya a Oakley. Buena Suerte a todos quien no hablan

Translation for those that don't read or speak Spanish:
(Thanks Trevor!)

How is everyone? Last night President called us and told
us where we are going. I'm going to Oakley, the other
side of the mission. It's a "Spanglish" area, and I'm

going to stay with Elder Riqulme (he's from Chile, near
Santiago and right now he is one of my zone leaders).
It will be interesting. It is a big change from Caldwell.
I'm excited for this, but I'm a little sad because one of
my investigators aren't going to be baptized this transfer,
but I feel that they will be baptized the next transfer.
But I know God wants me to go to Oakley. Good luck
to everybody who doesn't speak Spanish.

This last Saturday we got to see two of our investigators
get baptized and married. It was really awesome and
I just wish that we could have had more of our
investigators there. It was still very awesome though.
They are going to be some wonderful members, the
hermana already has a calling as a counselor in the
presidencia de la sociedad de socorro(rs), after being
a confirmed member for about ten minutes. They are
some really wonderful people. You all should be
more like them hahaha.

I am pretty sure that Satan is extremely mad at us
because since our baptism we have hardly taught
anyone and have had very bad luck with our tracting.
But we have found one investigator who lives in the
house of an old investigator of mine, and he seems
to be very interested, we left him a copy of El Libro
de Mormon and we are going to go back in a
few days and see how everything is going.

Today is going pretty slow, as many of you may
know a lot of new Toyotas have been recalled for
sticky gas pedals, and seeing as we have a 2010
Toyota Corolla we had to take it in. We haven't had
any problems with ours but it is getting fixed.
They said it would take about 2 1/2 hours. We went
at ten and they gave us a loaner and said they
would call when it is done, it is now just after 2,
I think they are running slow today. Maybe we
will be able to get it before I leave to Oakley,
I have a lot of stuff in it that I need to get.

Well I am tired of writing and also can't really
think of what else I should share so I shall say
good bye for now.

Que dios les bendiga (May God bless you)

Elder Paxton

P.S. Mom I know you are counting down the
days until mother's day, how many is it?
