Hello family!
I've gone back Spanish-speaking.  Which we all thought was going to happen.  I'm now in Kemah South.  It's in the same zone as Galveston, so I've been moved back to the bay.  Actually, where the Galveston off-island area stops is theoretically where ours should begin.  But I think that change happens in the middle of nowhere, where no one actually lives, so we're still not sure on that.  The area is quite the change from my last one.  I've gone from fancy chemical engineers to migrant Hispanics.  But I'm loving it so far. 

Our little branch is really good, and there are some really good members here.  We also work in the local singles branch.  We don't get to do a whole lot of work with them, because the YSA boundries are a whole lot bigger than our Spanish ones.  But it's kinda fun so far. 

We don't have a whole lot of investigators right now, or even a whole lot of less actives, so we've been going through our list of former investigators.  We've had some good success so far, a couple of return appointments and whatnot. 

My new companion is Hna. Cardoza.  She's from Seattle, and is in her third transfer. 

We are having special zone conferences this weekend.  Elder Ellis (2nd quorum of the 70) is coming to speak with us and do a mission tour.  It should be a really good meeting.  The ward is in our building, so our branch and the two English wards, will be having a "special meeting" on Sunday.  It seems like they are going to make a new English ward.  Everyone is full of speculation.  So that'll be really fun.  It might mean that we have to change our meeting time.  We'll probably go to 4 wards in the building after that. 

We have a couple of brand new converts here, and they are really solid.  A young couple with a daughter.  I've really enjoyed getting to know them.  (I've noticed this trend where I come into an area with brand new converts, not just converts, but super solid members in almost every area I've gone too...have y'all noticed it too?  I guess I'm here to strengthen brand new member, which I love!)

We've been having some chillier days, which is good.  I'm done with the hot.  Although I've heard it gets pretty chilly on the gulf.
Well, I can't think of much else!
Love you lots!
