transfers are in!

Hey everybody! I got my transfer call on Saturday from President Mehr and I will be serving in Paramaribo munder and south combined!! We were supposed to get sisters to take over Munder this transfer but they're having visa problems so they're coming in the next one. I'll be serving with Elder Van Den Herik, as elder Orton is going to Wanica in the south zone! In addition to taking over both areas this transfer, I will also be serving as the district leader! That means I will be in charge of teaching district meetings every week, planning exchanges, and doing baptismal interviews. President Mehr thanked me for doing well in this area and thought I would be the best fit for this district and so I'm very excited to serve in this position and do my best to help all the missionaries in my area. We have a lot of cool people we're teaching who I think might start to make some real progress soon so it's an exciting time to be here! I'll be taking the place of my trainer, elder Dom, who was the district leader before me. He did a great job so with any luck I can ask him for some advice before he leaves this Wednesday to go home!! Tonight we're going to a couple places so Elder Orton can say goodbye to people and I'll probably begin packing since we decided it would be easier for the work if I come to move into south's apartment. Elder Van Den Herik and I get along great and I'm super excited to serve with the Dutchman, by the end of this transfer hopefully I'll be speaking dutch circles around all of the surinamese people I meet. I'm super stoked for this new assignment and for the chance to help both of the areas I'm in charge of grow! I love and miss you guys and I'll let you know how everything goes and who progresses next week!
Elder Carpenter
