Hola Familia!!

So this week we found out that this transfer is only going to be 5 weeks long instead of 6! They are doing that because on July 1st, (which is when transfers were going to happen) the new mission presidents are coming in and President Cook is leaving. President Cook wants everyone in their positions where he thinks they should be before the mission splits so the new mission presidents don't have to worry about all of that when the mission splits. This is a problem though because Tabby's baptism is set for June 30th, the last day of what we thought transfers were going to be, but now there is a pretty good chance one of us could be moved before her baptism! She can't switch it either because she has already told a ton of people and her family is coming up from Utah so they can't really move the date. Hermana Garner is freaking out. She'll probably be the one that moves and she has taught Tabby from the very beginning so she is going to be suuuuuuuuuuuuper sad, mad, and everything if she can't go. Plus we are giving a talk at the baptism as well so that would just really stink. Usually it would be fine because if you get moved to an adjacent stake in the mission you can go back and see the baptism, but there is a chance she will get moved into the Carlsbad mission to Escondido, which is not only like the furthest point away from us, but it will be in a different mission. Sooo we'll see what happens. She is actually really sad about it and we might call President to tell him the situation and just see if we can get permission for her to come back even if she does get moved out of the mission.

Oh and the other thing that is going to change is if I stay here in the Irvine mission they are going to do a 3 week transfer shift. So after we have this 5 week transfer we are going to have another transfer in 3 weeks after that. Yeah, so it's all going to be super crazy. I think they are doing that becuase we will be combining with 2 stakes of the Anaheim mission (i think) and I am guessing that is when their transfers are so we are going to get on track with them. Anyways, just a bunch of changes are going to happen and we have no idea what will happen. Ah!

But for the rest of the week...this week was a little bit slower than the past weeks. For some reason we had a ton of people cancel their lessons with us. Giovani didn't come to church this week though :( We had a couple really good lessons with some less actives where we were able to see their faith growing and we were able to see that we had made an impact on their life so that was super cool!

Yesterday was a super good day, we had lesson after lesson. For dinner we went to the Garcias becuase it was baby's birthday (yeah that's what they called him) It was sooo fun! I love the hispanic culture! Even though I didn't understand like 95% of what was going on because that family talks sooooooooo fast, it was still a blast! I have some pictures that maybe I'll send. Hermana Garcia and 2 of her sisters were there with all of their kids, and man do hispanics know how to party :)

Well I don't have much time, but I love you guys and I am super excited to see what happens with all the changes here in the mission!

Les Quiero,
Hermana Johnson
