Transfer Blues

Well we had a great last week together as JLo! finishing strong! haha. quick shout out to my brother Joseph! He had his birthday over this past week, and getting married soon! Cant wait! 
     We had zone conference with president and Sister Salisbury. They had Elder Lopez and i sitting up in front with President and sister Salisbury! usually its the assistants but we were conducting. it was a lot of fun! Sister Salisbury had us take selfies on her ipad haha We learned how to be creative in the way we find teach and baptize; being a full purpose missionary. for example, if we are doing s service project, then we would invite a less active or an investigator to join us to feel the charity you feel as you serve. and have them invite a friend and have them serve to and meet the missionaries! its wonderful and there are SOO many ideas. 
   We were able to meet with Jenny our neighbor! she is so awesome! shes real and doesn't like how the world is moving away from Christ. we agree! thats why were out here! haha We have been trying to contact the crawfords, a part member family and we saw sister Crawford as we were driving to an appointment so we stopped and said hi! they are such cool people!!! i felt so comfortable and loved. 
   Roanoke had their 25th anniversary of the Colors festival and we got to be a part of it! its its one of the largest cultural festivals in Virginia. We had missionaries there all day in shifts. The public affairs rep for our stake was there and said that we could get put in the Roanoke times! Chris took some pictures of us all and it should be in the paper!
    Well transfers are tomorrow. i get to stay in Roanoke for another transfer! but Elder Lopez is getting transferred to Blacksburg. ill sure miss him, we've had a blast serving together! We'll see each other on the plane ride home though! i love it here in Roanoke. Ilove teaching people about the temple! its such a powerful place! i cant wait till i can go when i get back home!! hope yall have a great week! your in my thoughts and prayers!
