Move is Done! 5-18-15

Elder George and his companion Elder R

Hello again and may I say that this move coming to an end is a HUGE stress relief for me. I know now how stressful parents feel about moving. It really isn’t all that fun. But the new house is much better! So that’s a plus. Really the only one. So we'll work with that from now on! Today we are Emailing Pres. Doing the numbers, and after we are gonna get groceries and I'm gonna make pancakes tomorrow! I can buy pancake mix, but its kinda expensive. So I think I'll make the recipe from scratch :) I am also going to make syrup from the maple flavoring mom sent.
My favorite food! Pizza! Half savory and half sweet-Nutella and candy bar with caramel.
No mom, I haven’t received the package with my razor cord in it. I won’t get it until next Zone Meeting which is in June. Zone meetings are once a month. Transfers are every 6 weeks usually, except twice a year a transfer is 5 weeks to help with the visa waiters. District meetings are every week.
As for a lesson this week.... We taught a new woman called J. She is really nice and she has been searching for something more in her life for a little while and she is excited to learn about the church. The lesson went well. We talked about the Restoration and it went well. We left her the BoM and she was interested to read it. We have another appointment on Tuesday. Should go well!
Oh my goodness... In the center of the city there is a tin man that walks around doing funny stuff! Yesterday I did an interview with him in English and it was funny. My companion couldn’t stop laughing! It was awesome. Sometimes we pass him and he's perfectly still! It’s awesome!

During church this Sunday I was listening to the hymns and thought to myself why we really sing hymns... God has to be listening, yeah, but then I remembered that music invites the Spirit much stronger than anything else and so that’s why we sing them. We were singing “There Is A Green Hill Far Away” and I was truly touched by that song. Everything about it is amazing.
Well, mom asked me about a scripture that impacted me, and I was reading in 2 Nephi 9:34.... No Just Kidding.
I was reading in D&C 121: 7-9 again and I'm ALWAYS touched by his words in Liberty Jail. "My son, peace be unto thy soul. Thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a moment. And if thou would endure it will, God will exalt the on high." Every time I read those words when I'm having a bad day it makes all the difference. Thinking about how much He loves us helps more than people imagine.
I love you all and wish you the best! Have a great week! I look forward to seeing you words soon!
Sinceramente e com amor,

Elder George
