The Mission President from the Alabama Birmingham mission took this picture. The area is becoming part of the Alabama Birmingham mission and Barry met with the mission President and the two new elders that will be taking over the Fort Payne area.

He decided to spoil the surprise...

Hola familia!

Well, we just finished meeting with the Birmingham President and the new missionaries. We found out just how close we were to changing missions. I guess that when an area is switched to a different mission like this the missionaries in that area should technically be switched to the new mission as well. The Birmingham mission President said that President I. really loves us and he didn't want to lose us. Oh, they asked for your number, so I gave them dad's. I think it was the right one. It's been a while since I've had to use it haha. So, they might be calling y'all, but I don't really know. They took some pics of us for their blog haha

Ok, as far as the work goes things are going ok. As I said above we met the new missionaries today. They were serving in the area right next to us, so they don't have too far to go. We will be showing them around tomorrow. Yesterday we didn't have church here in Fort Payne. It was pretty weird haha. So, the only way that Mitch could've been baptized tomorrow is if he went to stake conference in Huntsville yesterday. We found out Saturday that he wasn't going. So, he'll be baptized with the new missionaries. Well, we didn't have any baptisms this transfer, but we've set up those new missionaries pretty well. They should have quite a bit of success here.

Well, we've got some exciting news! This past Saturday was the conference call where the new leaders are announced as well as the missionaries who are leaving. It was announced of course that Elder P. and I are both leaving. It was also announced that we are both training! We talked with President I. a bit more later that day. He decided to spoil the surprise... Elder P. and I are whitewashing and training together! He even told us our "new" area... Pleasant Ridge! Haha my goodness my mission has just been full of repeats. The original Spanish Elders are still there and we are whitewashing an area right next to them. So, pleasant ridge will now have two sets of Spanish Elders. President I. said that the reason for it is that the Spanish branch up there is really struggling. So, they hope that two Spanish companionships will help it out. Oh, and Elder P. are training a Brazil visa waiter. So, we could be training him for a little bit, or for the full 12 weeks. President said that some visa waiters end up spending their entire mission not in their mission because of the whole visa waiting thing. So, we could train him for a bit, or train him the full training period and he could stay for a good while-possibly his whole mission. So, Elder P. and I are pretty excited.

Well, that's the big news. I hope y'all enjoy the pictures. Take care and I love y'all!!!
