Here goes transfer 2!

So here we are on the last P-day of the transfer! It's been a hectic, crazy week, especially since we got a heads up that Elder Vaca Guzman would be getting out of here. We got the transfer call this morning; Elder Vaca Guzman is going to Buena Vista South Bakersfield to be with Elder Burgos, and I'm staying here in Taft. That's great, because there's a lot of unfinished business I have to see through. My follow-up trainer is going to be Elder Johnson; who interestingly enough, was Elder Jenkins' trainer. It's gonna be interesting to meet him and see how Elder Jenkins has been. Another crazy thing about this next transfer is that poor Elder Johnson is going to be the District Leader too! Training and being the District Leader sounds like a lot of responsibility. I'll definitely do my best to help him out and make his burden a bit lighter.

I'm not sure what to talk about today... Elder V had a scary time last Monday. We went to a doctor about his back, and found out his Fillet Mignon isn't working well. He told him that he'd have to go to physical therapy three times a week. Then, President Castro called us and it seemed like he'd have to go home!   Fortunately, on Tuesday the Physical Therapist himself told us that he'd only have to go once a week. So, we'll see what happens. He's feeling a lot better already, because of the stretches and stuff the therapist taught him, and by next week he should be good. That is if he doesn't push himself and get hurt again.

I didn't get the mail, because when transfers come up, the mission office holds all the letters and gives them to us at Transfers meeting, but since we're both staying in this side of the mission, we're not actually going to Transfers meeting.  So I'll get the letters (Or whatever there is) in a little while.

So, that's pretty much all I can think of to talk about... We're doing great out here, and we'll see what the next month and a half has in store!

Con amor,

Elder Matthew David Clough
