Transfers and Muscle Cars

A souped up Mustang in Columbus
Hey, Everybody!

I'm now on the Alief Ward Elders' Quorum email list so I heard all about the Houston flood, and about the efforts that Church members made to help those who'd been affected by it.  That's pretty neat.  

The penultimate district meeting from last transfer (left to right): Elder McBride, me, Elder Holman, Elder Garrett, Elder Infante, and Elder Sharp

With our Zone Leaders, Elder Larsen (glasses) and Elder Lloyd

We had transfers this week.  I'm still in Columbus as a district leader and our district is now two elders less; Elder Holman from Columbus Spanish finished up his mission, Schuyler Spanish was closed and Elder McBride was transferred to Lincoln.  Elder Infante, the other Schuyler missionary, was transferred to Columbus Spanish with Elder Sharp.  So it's the same people minus two.  

Me with Elder Shipley from Lincoln Spanish.  He's one of the departing missionaries from last transfer

Me with Elder Holman before his departure

This past week was a struggle, but it finished on a high note.  We had a great lesson with a recent convert and a new investigator and one of our investigators, who had been avoiding us for awhile, is visiting us again and wants to get back on track.  I was reminded that when we're hopeful and striving to acquire Christlike attributes, our area responds accordingly.  

A hunk of steel and rock molded together by friction.  We found it along the railroad tracks.

I hope y'all in Houston get a chance to dry out! I will pray for all those who are affected by the floods.
