Catching the Wave in Cardiff

We have been super busy this last week. We have been getting everything ready for the new set of missionaries in our ward. We have had to find a place for them to stay, make a new area book, map book, find people for them to teach, etc... Finally they will be here tomorrow. When we have not been working on all the new stuff for the new missionaries, we have been teaching.
We finally got Savannah to commit to a baptismal date. Savannah has been wanting to be baptized for a long time, but her mom would not let her. So it is really exciting. She is going to be baptized on Friday, August 23. Right before she and all of her friends leave for college. She has still not told her parents yet about the date. However Savannah said that her mom told her that she could do what ever she wanted. So it is not exactly set in stone yet, but Savannah has a lot of faith that her mom will let her be baptized. She has put her trust in the lord that it will work out. Sometimes that is all we can do. Turn our problems over to the lord and let him do some of the heavy lifting.
I went on Emergency ( last minute) exchange on Friday. Elder Moon was called be be the new district leader. So instead of weekly planning, Elder Moon had a meeting from 8 to 2 that he had to go to at the mission office. So I went with the Vista Zone Leaders during that time. It was interesting being in temporary threesome companionship. We had the usual morning personal and companionship study. Then since it was Friday I helped them plan for the week ahead. I had a great time. Elder Moon said that in the meeting they said that they were going to create a new district in our area as well. So once again we have more work to do to set up a new district. Right after setting up a new area. Whats next? Are we going to have to set up a new zone soon. Who knows? The work is progressing so fast that they are just creating and changing things left and right. It is cool that I get to experience all of it.
Anyway overall it was a great week with a lot of progress. I look forward for even more.
