January 25, 2015...."I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people"

Fam bam what is good it's ya boy Elder Armijo here in Kissimmee where miracles are happening daily. Haha I hope you have all had a good week and a good Sabbath. This week was super "cold" here haha for once. And we were on bikes. It rained on us while we were biking and it was like 45 degrees too so it was kinda sucky but we stuck it out. I was pretty grumpy not gonna lie. Biking in church clothes whilst wet and sweaty cuz humidity is not the biz. But it was worth it because we were able to see "D" and "M" and their mom and brother and sister. "D" is getting baptized this Saturday!! We are pumped. And "M" is getting baptized the weekend after. We had interviews with President Berry and they were sweet! He challenged Elder Hansen and me to help "B" the mom of "D" and "M" feel the spirit at their baptisms and help her realize the importance of uniting the whole family. So we are working hard on that the whole family came to church this Sunday which was a first. Also, we got to watch a worldwide broadcast for missionaries all over the world it was cool. We also met with "E" who will be baptized on the 6th and he has been receiving answers to his prayers left and right it's been so awesome to see him grow and how much more happy he is. We have the car this week and we also have about 60 names that the ward gave us to go see ( less-actives, recent move-ins, randoms ). So we will be super busy this week with seeing people haha which is good.  (Names abbreviated for privacy)

Time is flying by super fast. And also some bad news.....we will no longer have transfer meetings. I guess the church missionary department is doing away with them everywhere and we as a mission don't understand why honestly. They help so much and are so organized and spiritual for us and the members that bring us. It's really disappointing and they haven't even told us how transfers are going to work now and transfers are 2 weeks away. Elder Hansen and I have been trying to understand why they would stop transfer meetings and we can't think of any reason why haha so I hope they tell us more on why this was decided. Kinda stinks. I'm loving my mission and the people I have met. Can't believe I only have 10 months left it sucks haha I'm trying to make the best of the time I have left. It's going by too fast, love you all. Have a sick week and remember why we are here Alma 18:34 ( fav scrip ) "Ammon said unto him:  I am a man; and man, in the beginning, was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people,that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true;"
