Staying in Sunnyside and am now a District Leader as well as a trainer. (week 57)

Transfers are coming in fast Wednesdayy. So I'm just going to cut to the chase and tell you all the great changes that are up and coming. So Elder Steadman is going to be moved to Othello 2nd and 4th wards. He is also going to be training over there. I'm going to be staying here in Sunnyside and I will be receiving a greenie. I am also going to be the district leader. It's going to be new having those two assignments. We'll see how this works out for me. Hopefully well. Also Elder Dodson as I may have already told you is going to Florida and will be home for a week before going into the MTC. It is going to be a super exciting few weeks for him. An awesome transfer is ahead and it's is going to be fun. 

I thought I'd send this part as a fore runner to the rest of the email so you don't have to wait too long for the transfer information. 

Love ya'll,
Elder Boren

So now on to the Stuff that happened this past week. The investigator we have been working with named Roberto has decided to be baptized and is preparing to be baptized on the 27th. He is such a great guy and it has been amazing being able to work with him. He has a huge desire to learn more and wants to set himself on the path to the celestial kingdom. He told us that himself after we taught him the full plan of salvation and made sure he understood it all. He also came to sacrament meeting again although he made to leave early to make some food for his step-daughters birthday party. I am looking forward to being able to work with him some more this upcoming transfer. 

I think last week I talked a little about how we are working to plan more like it teaches in Preach my Gospel. If not now you know. So this past Friday we were able to start doing that and It was such a great change. Planning was actually a lot more enjoyable and I feel that I we have great plans. It took a really long time to do the planning ,but it was worth it. It makes a huge difference planning this way because it becomes planing and isn't just scheduling people into our week. 

Yesterday we got to see some of the blessings of planning things well. We had planned to teach one of the referrals we contacted a few days earlier and planned on taking one of the youth with us. The youth we took was Cole Gardner. He is going to serve in Costa Rica. He is leaving for the MTC in 9 days. So back to story. So we didn't actually know that she was going to be there ,but we felt it would be a good use of our time. So we knocked and she was there and was actually just getting home, But she let us in and let us teach. We had a great lesson and we were able to get to know her really well. She is going to read the Book of Mormon and hopefully we will be able to see her again this week. 

Well we are looking forward to a great week with lots going on. I hope all is well back home. From what it sounds everyone is having an awesome time. 

With love,
Elder Boren
