Well, today is the preparation day right before transfers, and the news of who-is-going-where is causing the typical excitement. Before all that business started though, President Torgan called me into his office and let me know in advance that I will be training an Elder Brown from Farmington Utah (he didn´t say the hometown, but I checked on the board) while opening up a new area in Lagos (down in the Algarve - that´s as beach bottom south of Portugal as you can get) and serving once again as a district leader. Needless to say, I am very very happy and excited for the new area, new companion, and new challenges - not saying anything bad about being a financial secretary with Elder Dias in Amadora. But I´m looking forward to be in the full missionary swing of things!
So, that´s the biggest news. Otherwise, things are looking good for the future of Amadora/Queluz. There is a man from Mozambique in his 30s named Manuel who has come to church the past two Sundays and has really liked everything. He came to the baptismal service of another man who was baptized last Saturday and really liked that too, and everything looks great for him to be baptized in a few weeks.
Should anyone desire to send further mail, please keep sending stuff to the mission office. If anyone needs a reminder, here´s the address:

So how is everybody? John and Laura and kids are all comfy cozy in Provo now, right? What´s new with everyone else? I hope you all have a great week, and I hope to hear from you all soon. Tchau!
