Transfer Week! Week 80

 So this week was pretty crazy and lots has happened!

On Tuesday I taught district Meeting about Conversion and how conversion happens, It went really well! Then we had to run some errands with Elder Bevins to figure out some things with the electrical bill, so that was kind of a bummer for sure, but that took up most of our day,but we had a  sweet lesson with Ricky's step sisters about our purpose and little bit about the Restoration!

On Wednesday we had a completely overly long coordination meeting, but had a sweet lesson with a missionary's mother, Sister James, about the Restoration! It was way cool! She committed to praying about baptism which she was very excited about! We also had a great lesson with a member family talking about adversity and the blessings that come from facing our challenges with faith and hope! We watched the mormon message called "The Refiners Fire" It was cool to see how this woman's experience impacted this member family in Trinidad!

On Thursday we had a pretty rough day,lots of rejection and fall through's, but we had an alright lesson with a young woman named Jamie who is the girlfriend of a less-active member! She's pretty cool and likes the idea of a prophet on the earth, so she is open  to our message and that for sure makes it easier!

On Friday I got to go on a trade-off with Elder Haderlie here in our area and we had another sweet lesson with Sister James as well with the Joseph family who just barely hit a year from being baptized We got them excited for going to the temple which is a huge sacrifice for people in the Caribbean. They are planning to go in September if everything works out! It's way cool to see what people will do to go to the temple and be sealed for time and all eternity as a family! 

On Saturday it was a pretty stressful day as we waited to find out transfers from the Assistants and President. But in the evening while we were biking from an appointment we got called by President telling me that I would be going down South to serve with Elder Little in San Fernando as a zone leader and Elder Peterson will be training an Elder from my high school! Elder Hanks! pretty small world! 

Sunday was good, I had to give a farewell testimony in the ward and had my last lunch at the Suepaul's, but had a great day visiting some members that I wouldn't get to see before I left! It was a sad day of Goodbye's, but it definately wasn't as hard as any other transfer because I wasn't leaving the country, just moving around in the country!

Crazy week, crazy day! Sorry this  letter kind of sucks!

Hope you all have an awesome week!

Much Love!

Elder Dorrance

P-day fun:
