As you can see by the subject line, yesterday I was officially released from my calling as branch president! Brother Esdras Ramirez is now the branch president of Tejutla. I`m so happy for him, and I know he has been called by God and will do a fantastic job. We spent two or three hours in the church yesterday going over all of his responsibilities and changes we are going to make in the branch. I will miss being branch president, but I`m so happy to see this sign of grand progress in the branch!
Now that I`m not branch president, we`re excited to be full-time missionaries again! We will be doing a ton of finding and teaching investigators this week, and I know that God will bless us with miracles as we work diligently to find those He has prepared.
We also had the opportunity to go to the temple! Miriam, a future missionary in the branch, received her endowment. It was a great time, and a great way to finish off my time as branch president!
Transfers were last week, and President Goodman informed me that my companion and I will be staying one more transfer here in Tejutla to help President Ramirez get adjusted to his new calling.
I`m beyond grateful for the opportunity that God gave me to serve here as branch president. I`ve learned an innumerable amount of things, and I`ve had several unforgettable experiences. I`ve watched the healing power of the Atonement work right before my eyes. Jesus Christ is REAL and HE LIVES!
I love you all! Have a great week!
