Transfer Time and a New Companion....

July 14th, 2014  

                                                         Now it's ELDER COBABE!!!! 

We're so least i am! haha he's great!!!!! 

 Elder Marshall, Elder Wardell, Elder Tenney  
Elder Marshall and Elder Tenney are now companions, 
Elder Wardell and Elder Tenney were companions in the CCM.  

Elder Marshall  just made District Leader!! He will be so awesome.
 He has been a great trainer for Elder Wardell. 
He will be a benefit to so many missionaries in his new leadership role!  

weeeeell heres the scoop.
so this past week was transfer week!
im staying in El portal, but sadly, elder marshall was not going to be staying with me :( but all is well!
i am now companions with elder Cobabe. he's totally awesome!
he's been out for six transfers so just about nine months.
this is transfer seven for him, and three for me! its crazy how fast the time has gone by. tomorrow, it will have been three months since i've been in the field, and over four that ive been on the mission.! so crazy!

so, rather interesting experience, so our mission does whats called a transfer meeting, where all the missionaries that transfer, drive to ft laud, and we have a little meeting. and elder cobabe and i were on our way home from transfer meeting, and the a/c suddenly stopped blowing cold. i was like what the?
and then i heard the dash board ding, and i looked down and the warning light for the engine temperature came on and the needle was bouncing at the top. i was like whooooooooa, not cool. so we pulled off to the side, popped the hood took a look, called the vehicle coordinator, and he told us to go to a pep boys. stinking pep boys, but hey, its not my car haha.
so we go over there, and they tell us we will have to wait a while, so while we were waiting, we went to get krispy kreme, and it started sprinkling so i said aah lets get the umbrellas. so we got them and started going along, and then it started coming down a little more. and then a little more. and a bit more after that. haha pretty soon, it was just pouring rain. just out of no where. i looked at elder cobabe and said, good thing we brought the umbrellas. HA (we were soaked. even above the waist)
but we got the car and went home, he got settled in, and we went along had a good day.
so friday, the other elders needed to use the car, and they were gonna be back before we left, well they come home, and tell us the warning light was on again, and that the ac was also acting up. uuuuuuugh! so we went to a chevy dealership, only to find out that we couldnt come in till monday, so we had to park the car till today.
so for the second time in my mission, i had to bike! i was actually a little happy i came to realize how much i dont mind biking. that lasted for about fifteen minutes hahaha. but something good came out of it. i got my awesome tan back! .....almost hahaha.i wore a long sleeve with the sleeves rolled up on saturday, and now i have a really funny lookin farmers tan. good things. luckily the car is getting fixed today so todo esta bien. (all is well)

haha well sadly to say, marlen did not get baptised this last sunday, she was not able to attend church this past week, but she is still awesome as ever, and she will most likely be getting baptised this next sunday. 
well, i love yall, cant wait to talk to you next week!
Elder Wardell
