transfer day has come and gone and i am with a new companion

Well transfer day has come and gone and i am with a new companion. I am sure going to miss Elder Gomez, it was a good three months together. Time sure flies. But my new companion seems super cool his name is Elder Richardson from Las Vegas..but it isn't las vegas it is a town close by that starts with an H...i am horrible at this. Anyway he has just left his first area in the mission so this will be his second area. he has 5 months in the mission so 1 in the mtc and 3 in his first area. Still nuevito. We were going to see how this goes huh. Second of all i need to explain a story that has been going on the last couple transfers. So three transfers ago the other elders that live with us baptized a 16 year old girl. the family was interested but for one reason or another she was the first to be baptized. Well now this girl her aunt her cousin and her younger brother are all baptized members of the church. Right now her mom and her two other brothers are preparing for baptism. Well, throughout all the exchanges that we have had i have passed by on many occasions. I learned yesterday that after general conference the two brothers accepted a date to be baptized. the 22nd of April. and not only that they asked the elders if i would be willing to be the one to baptize them both. I am super excited and super humbled to have this experience. I love this family and they have been part of my time here in Jardin as well as experiencing my own branch here. Well Other than all this exciting experiences that are going on right now i just don't know what to say. We will be having a change of Branch Presidentes this next sunday so it will be interesting to see who it ends up being. i am pretty sure i know who it is, but other than that i am really not 100% sure. I'm pretty sure that with all these changes happening means new beginnings in our branch and in the work of the lord here in Jardin. i am super excited and i just cant express how much i love serving the lord. I share the gospel in a way that i can't help but say that i know this church is true. i know that joseph smith restored the gospel here on earth. i pray every night to feel the power of that testimony. i pray that somehow the gospel can reach to the hearts of those i talk to , and helps those that i love the most. This conference i thought a lot about the power of love, and how to show it. In all reality, God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, and he so loved the world that he gave his life for it. I testify of the power of the atonement and how in all reality this is a gospel and church of Gods Love. For God so loved the world that he restored his church once again on the earth for us, to enjoy all priesthood blessings on this earth. Including eternal families and salvation. I love you all Elder Cook
