Andy's Mission Scripture

Andy's Mission Scripture:

"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

~Alma 29:9

New Area!

We received this email last week on Thursday after a long transfer day.

Ola todo mundo! 

Hey everybody! I finally arrived in my new area called ``Patos`` or ``Ducks``. Yes i was 
transefered from Canguaretama sadly...It never hurt so much to leave an area...I 
had a great birthday and i thank all you guys for the birthday wishes and i epecially 
thank the youth of Canguaretama for making it extra special...I have pictures but unfortunatly i will only be able to show them this coming monday...its going to be a real 
short one to ya guys today becuase we arrived a little late here in get this...
Wednesday morning  i left from Canguaretama at 700 in the morning for Natal to grab my bus to Caicó (the closest biggest city to grab another bus to arrive in Patos) When i arrived in Natal around 830 i found out that i had to wait for my travel buddy Elder Christianson that was transfered from Joao ´pessoa until around 1000ish...When he arrived we bought our tickets for ciacó for the 1200 bus ride....I spent the whole morning at the bus station...Luckily I saw my ´´son´´ elder G. Oliveira! It was so good to see him and remember the good times we had in Campina Grande...He was transfered to Mossoro from Joao Pessoa...Unfortunalty i did not see Elder Pereira or Jefferson my good ol buddy from Mossoro that will leave for his mission Oct. 21 i believe!!! I still dont know where he is going??? He had called me the other week it was so great to talk to him a little and tell him how happy i am for him...from Natal to Caicó its a 5 hour drive...You guys can check out the distante on Google if you want...When we arrived in Caicó around 500 nobody was waiting for us so we kind of freaked out becuase neither of us had a cell phone...we ended up trying to call the assintants of the president by a payphone to get in touch with our zone leaders but nothing went through...luckily after waiting for like 20 min our LZ´s showed up out of nowhere....Then they told me i would spend the night with them becuase all the busses to Patos had already gone...So i had a great night with the zone leaders and i had a great little district meeting with my new district of patos. Im in charge of just one other companionship...We are in charge of just one ward here Patos Ward....We arrived here this afternoon around 100ish...and that about how it went in summary...My new companion is Elder Anre who has 5 months in the mission! My second Amercan companion! He is from Oregon!!! More on everything this coming monday!!! Love you Guys! Have a great end of the weeek!!! Love Elder M. Howell
