Hello all!

Hallelujah! Houston, we have Gmail! The day has finally come when the Church migrated from its Novell system with 100MB of space, a bunch of errors, an ugly interface, slow response, and annoying navigation and no user-friendliness to the revolutionary Gmail-- the top-rated and easiest-to-use email client on the Earth, with a whopping 7419 MB of space (and counting =) )! As people can tell, I'm a missionary for the Church and Google! =)

Well, it's been an interesting week with the latest round of transfers! After Elder Finch left, and Elder Chapman came in, and then Elder Romeril came in (all in six weeks!), I am very glad to be getting everything normalized, and I hopefully will be with my new companion, Elder Baker, for the whole intended 6 weeks. It's kind of funny that I went though 3 companions this past transfer (two of which had to go home early for medical and other reasons). In mission slang, I would say I killed them off. It was really funny when I met my new companion, and he said, "So tell me a bit about yourself Elder Watkins." The look on his face was great when I told him, in the coldest tone I could muster, "I had 3 companions last transfer-- 2 went home and one was ET'd." Somehow I managed to keep a straight face, and he was very much alarmed at such history =) He was relieved later when he found out that none of my history has anything to do with disagreements between companions.

We're making OK progress with our investigators, and they are making sufficient strides to hopefully be baptized in a few weeks. Keep them in your prayers, please. We're hoping to get some more new investigators soon so we don't have 7 hours of tracting per day, but even if not, we'll survive.

Attached are pictures of a cool house (or in spanish, un hogarito we saw while tracting (knocking doors)-- I don't know if a midget lives there, or if it's just a very elaborate playhouse, but it's pretty cool, and we just had to get pictures.

At any rate, keep up the work on the home front, and God bless!
