Feliz Dia de Independencia! Viva Mexico!

Transfer news is out and my time in El Paso, TX has officially come to a close (for now at least). Tomorrow morning I’m headed back up north to the Los Lunas zone in Albuquerque. My new companion is Hermana Thompson and I am pumped! She’s one incredible missionary and this is her last transfer before she goes home. We’re going to make these next 6 weeks count!

Saying goodbye to everyone here was so hard. The Montwood ward was genuinely like family to me and we were working with some really cool people. The last little while that I’ve gotten to spend with Hermana Johnson has been so good. She’s also being transferred out and elders are replacing us (those lucky dogs). Even though we only got a transfer together, I learned a ton from her and I know the two of us are going to be friends long after the mission.

Missions are cool like that- you meet all of these awesome people and in very short spans of time you’re able to form these super tight bonds. It never fails to amaze me just how many good friendships there are to be made. I’m so thankful for my time in Montwood, for all of the people I’ve been able to associate with and for all of the memories that have been made here. The Gospel is true and mission life is the good life.

The pictures attached are from all of the Mexican Independence Day celebrations that happened this past week (viva Mexico!), from Zone Conference (I had a sweet reunion with the Valle del Norte missionary crew) and from a handful of goodbyes with good friends.

Albuquerque, here I come! Hasta luego! Les quiero mucho y que tengan una bonita semana!
