Transfer Calls

So this is the moment you have all been waiting for, Yes transfer calls! Alright I am going to Barbados to be a District Leader with Elder Bechan! I am so pumped! Elder Bechan was the ZL here in St. Lucia for my first transfer back so I know him really well! He is going home in 6 weeks and is a dang good missionary! I am going to learn so much from him! He is from Holland and is just a boss! I couldn't be happier about it! am way excited! I will get to see Elder Beck also so that is going to be sweet! So yup I fly out on Wednesday afternoon! I am excited!
So I don't really know what else to say here other than I am going to miss St. Lucia a lot. This has become my home. I am going to miss so many people! Elder Glade and I are now referred to as the Primary Elders so we got pretty dang tight with those lickle kids. I am going to miss them. I am going to miss Granny an awful lot. It was funny when we told her about how I was leaving and she said, "Is it President Mehr who is sending you away? I hate him!" Ha so I am going to miss her! I am going to miss O'Brian and his family a lot too. They were a little crazy at times but they are amazing! I am going to miss them. I am going to miss so many people it is going to be tough. St. Lucia has really changed my life.
I was also asked to talk on sunday since I was leaving. I decided to just tell about my journey to St. Lucia and how I got there. I almost teared up so many times because I was there because Heavenly Father put me there. All of the things that happened were not just coincidences! I know that this is where I was supposed to be and that I am supposed to be in Barbados for some reason! I know that we are put in places for a reason and that people are put in our life for a reason! I know it! I have seen that so much in my life. It has been a real blessing. I also know that Heavenly Father loves and is always mindful of us! I have loved seeing that in St. Lucia! I am going to miss St. Lucia but Barbados is going to be great. I love you all! Keep smilin'!
