We will be the Price-Manti Bilingual Zone Leaders

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to make an audio for you but I will before P-day is over today. There is a ton of news here but first let me say a few things. I want to congratulate Ben on his call to Italy! That is soooo cool! he is going to love it! I loved learning a new language in the MTC. Knowing Portuguese, he should pick up Italian just fine just like Elder Glowa and Spanish. I am so happy for Ben! When he comes home, it will be like almost 4 years since I will have seen him. That's crazy! I can't wait to find out where Kameron and Tyler Keith are going. These are exciting times! Serving a mission has got to be one of the greatest decisions I have made in my life. I love it. There is nothing to compare it to. I am so glad I'm a missionary! It truly is the best 2 years. Please thank the Kaufman's for sending me those e-mails and pictures. President Kaufman is right, he did teach me the bank shot and that shot is the only reason I ever made any basketball team! Thank them for me please. Well, my right foot is getting better very slowly I guess you could say. It doesn't seem to hurt as much as it used to. But guess what? I woke up this morning and my left foot was numb! Yes! It is still numb right now. I can't believe it. I don't remember doing anything out of the ordinary to it to cause this but it is. I am going to have to call Sister Pitts again. My left foot doesn't hurt or anything like my right foot but this is exactly how it all started with my right foot! I wonder what I am doing wrong. Anyway, I'm not too worried. I'll call Sister Pitts and we'll figure something out. I might have to go see a foot specialist or something. This past week was pretty rough actually. Elder Nascimento and I haven't been feeling very well. We've both been battling colds. We are going to get plenty of rest today though, which should help. We had many appointments cancel on us as well last week. Like 2 or 3 every day. I guess it was a busy day for everyone but this week should be a lot better. Elder Nascimento and I are really working on finding more people to teach and we had a lot of time to do that last week with all the cancellations. We are working on building the area up a little bit. It will be a fun transfer. The biggest news is that Elder Nascimento and I will stay together this transfer. We got our calls yesterday. There is a little twist though. We will become a bilingual area. The Spanish speaking sisters in our district will be removed and our area and Castledale's area will become bilingual. Elder Nascimento and I will get to teach in Spanish as well. That means we teach EVERYONE in our area's boundaries, English or Spanish. This is the first time on my mission that I will be bilingual! I think it's great and I am so excited. Best of both worlds. Our address will stay the same.
Anyway, this will be an interesting transfer. We will be the Price-Manti Zone leaders. Our zone boundaries will change. We will no longer be the eastern Utah zone. We will take over half of the old Manti Temple zone, which means Mount Pleasant, Ephraim, and Gunnison will now be in our zone. Moab will stay in our zone along with Castledale and Wellington. Blanding and Monticello will become part of the Farmington, New Mexico mission. A lot of changes all around. A lot of great friends I have made here will go to the Provo mission and I will stay in St. George. These are excting times. Mike Berron is getting baptized on Saturday. He is 11 and such a cool kid. He was going to be baptized with his step-dad Tony but Tony needs to quit smoking first. We'll continue to work with Tony and he'll do it! I must be going now but I'll make an audio later! LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
