Anyone know how stressful transfers are?

So this transfer was the first one that I have been part of where I actually had to worry about me going somewhere. It was a doozy too, with about 2/3 of the companionships being affected. When it came down to it, however, Conway Spanish and Little Rock north were the only spanish elders not affected. So I am staying where I am for at least six more weeks. That makes me and sister Mecham the most experienced missionaries in Conway. Sister Martell, who has been here a LONG time, is going home tomorrow. That was kinda sad, seeing as I have known here longer than any of the other missionaries here in Conway.

Now that transfers are out of the way, how about the rest of the week? Actually quite good. We got in with Lerin after ages of him going to work right when we get there. He is reading his scriptures on his own, and he has really good questions. We had a good talk, and he says that he wants to be baptized, but he will need some more time to learn. Oh, he'll learn, all right. :)
Brother McKinney is back in town, which makes ward correlation turn into the "war room." SO much stuff gets done there, even when he isn't there, it's crazy. I can firmly say that we have some of the most mission-centered wards here in Conway. They don't have a lot of Spanish speakers, but they show support as much as they can. 

Not sure if I brought this up last week, but we have a new investigator that I am really excited about. His name is Afarat (odd, right?) and he is the cousin of a member here. He has come to church twice now, read a bit of the Book of Mormon, and seems to be interested. He used to sell automated robots in Mexico (for car factories and stuff) and he is really cool! We want to start teaching him soon. Because all this is happening without us really having to talk to him. 

Well, not much else is happening here! I hope none of you are cooking out there! We're supposed to get a cold front this week, so hoping for the best! It's bike week!
