Last week before transfer

This is the last week of the transfer and I don’t know what is going to happen. I might be going to Suriname, but I also might stay here for a transfer. Who knows what’s going to happen. Most of the missionaries in the area say that I will be going to Suriname. I guess I will need to wait until Thursday to find out. Transfers are always exciting.

We had District Conference in the Georgetown Guyana District yesterday. The District President and some other people spoke on some things including the fact that everyone is working on getting a stake in Guyana. There were a lot of people there. I even saw some people from my last area that I baptized. That is the most amazing thing. It brings up a great joy knowing that people that I’ve baptized are still active and are taking the church seriously. On top of that, we had 8 people at Church. They all liked the district conference and so 6 of them can get baptized on Saturday. I really love this work.

The people here are going crazy about the elections in the US. The all think that I am an American and so when we pass them on the street they start talking to us about politics and things like that. The funny thing is that most people do not know what they are talking about. They are just happy about the fact that there is a black President in the US. A lot of the missionaries here are not happy with Obama being the president. They are all republican. There are some funny discussions that come from that.
