Elder Redd's favorite scripture

Elder Redd's favorite missionary scripture

Alma 26:11-12
But Ammon said unto him: I do not boast in my own strength,
nor in my own wisdom; but behold, my joy is full, yea, my heart is brim with
joy, and I will rejoice in my God.
Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak;
therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his
strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought
in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Captain Canada Belt!

Las Venturas de elder Rojo: Capitulo 57

Aye Cabere! Ya es dia de Canada!?! Que Loco! Pues a mi me siento que es el primer dia de Canada en mi mision todovia. Pues tengo noticias muy animas de Canada! en mi mision hay un cinturon, que se llama el "Captain Canada Belt" Y el missionero que tiene el mas tiempo en la mision quien es de Canada tiene este cinturon. Hoy recibi un texto de un Elder Wilde quien se va a morir el Miercoles, el dijo "Elder Redd, the belt's yours. you're staying in Rifle Second correct?" Siiiii!!!! Que Animo voy a recibir el cinturon! Estoy muy animado por este entonces creo que lo voy a obtener este semana y les mandare una foto cuando lo tengo. 

(surely someone could do a better job of translating this than Google and me, but here's what we came up with) Cabere Aye! It's Canada day!?! That's Crazy! Well I feel it's the first day of Canada on my mission Todavia. Well I have exciting Canadian news! In my mission there is a belt, called the "Captain Canada Belt" And the missionary that has been in the mission longest from Canada has this belt. Today I received a text from Elder Wilde who is going to die on Wednesday, he said "Elder Redd, the belt's yours.You're Staying in Rifle Second correct?" Siiiii!! I'm excited that I get the belt! I am very encouraged by this and I think I'm going to get it this week and take a photo when I have it.

Well Happy Canada day! Sadly practically no one here knows about it, so I'll have to text all the other Canadians to celebrate it. Oh quick funny story, on the Calendar that Elder Gibson and I have in our apartment on July 1st it says, "Canada Day - Canada" ... ... Isn't the name Canada day a little self explanatory? 

So President Maynes went home on Friday =( very very sad. He will be missed by all of us, but I know that President Murdoch will be a great Mission President who will do the Lords work! Today I got to hear from him for the first time, we had our conference call this morning and President Murdoch sounded very excited to be here! He'll be doing his Mission tour in the next few weeks, and then I'll actually get to meet him! So very excited for that day! 

Also Transfer news! So Elder Gibson and I will be staying together for another transfer! We're both excited to keep working together. This will be an interesting transfer, we have two areas that are splitting one, where both Elders will separate and each one will cover one of the wards that were previously covered by both of them. And one of our Spanglish areas will get English Sisters to teach English and the Elders will only cover Spanish! I'm very excited because I think that Elder Rollins will be coming up here to serve there and be in the Zone! We also have an area getting whitewashed by Sisters! Hermana Bennett will be up there, so our whole MTC District will be in the same zone! 

So It'll be a very fun transfer! I'm looking forward to working hard and doing lots of great stuff out here in the mountains! 

It was super weird to be thinking about the missionaries who are going home this transfer. I was thinking about Elder Ence, he was my first Zone Leader back in Denver, and he's been serving as an Assistant for 5 transfers. Great Missionary and I really love that guy. I'm glad he's been serving as an Assistant, because that means I get to see him and talk with him more. But he's going home! I was thinking about that, and I realized that Tyler Gedlaman also goes home at the same time! That's crazy, I can still so vividly remember the day he left to the MTC when I said goodbye to him. 

Well, I don't have a ton of time today, I still have to e-mail President Murdoch, and then go play basketball. Yes, I actually have to today. Yesterday we oym'ed this guy while he was shooting hoops on his driveway, long story short we're playing one on one today, if I win he comes to church, if he wins I buy him lunch. So pray for me that I haven't committed some heresy so I can win and then we'll start teaching him! 

Con Mucho amor!

Elder Rojo
