A Wedding, A Baptism and Transfers!!

August 19, 2014 

Robin and Hugo getting married !!

Robin and Hugo getting Baptised!!! 

Weeeeeell heres the scoop.
Robin and hugo were married and baptized this last week. We truly saw a miracle this last week with those two. they are such a Huge example of enduring hard trials. looking back there was a lot of things that really kind of stood in the way of their baptism: 1st robin has leukemia, and she physically feels really bad a lot, so lessons were sometimes difficult for her, but she pulled through. The marriage license for them was a challenge to get, but because they had faith that it would pull through right from the get go, it wasn't as much of a challenge as it definitely could have been. Then came the wedding/baptism day, and Robin wasn't feeling so good at all the whole day, and when we asked her what she wanted to do, wait or proceed, without even hesitating she said that we should do it. so we did! it was truly amazing!
  well this past week we also had zone conference! I got to see elder marshall again! I was soo happy, he's doing amazing. and also me and elder simper and elder tenney all got to chat with each other at different times. it was so cool to be there with two other guys from las vegas, one who I was good friends with for a while.
   and then came the news. weeeell tomorrow, after 4 months and five days in El Portal, I'm going to be transferring for the first time. It's bittersweet cuz I love El Portal but at the same time I'm super excited for the new experience! :) soo exciting.
Well guess that will be all love yall!

Note from Mom:  Transfers are  name of the time period in which Missionaries  serve together with their companions. Transfers are every 6 weeks. You can be with a companion for one transfer or more than one transfer. For example Elder Wardell was companions with Elder Marshall for 2 transfers and he has been with Elder Cobabe for 1 transfer.  On Sunday night the week of Transfers the missionaries are notified if they will be "transferring" or not.   Elder Wardell received a call this last Sunday night, and was told he will be transferring to a new area. He will go to "Transfer Meeting" tomorrow. There he will meet his new companion and then he will be given his new area. He has been serving in NW Miami in an area called El Portal North.  He will now move from that area to his new area and begin serving there with his new companion.
