Transfers, .. But Staying...

So after we got home Friday we sat down to plan and received a call from the APs... the dreaded transfers had arrived... but what they told us we never thought was going to happen.. since in our mission there are only 37 missionaries, and 4 of them are going home today.. some areas are going to close.. so thats the news that we got... we are staying in the area.. elder delano and i, but we are also white washing the area next to us.. so the viana branch that  just 3 transfers ago had 6 missionaries... now will only have 2.. just me and my companion.. We just more than doubled our work load.. yesterday at church was one of the most stressful days I've had in my whole life.. trying to take care of our investigators while getting to know the new ones and making appointments with them all. But the good news is that we have confirmed baptisms every week of April. So we are very excited for that, to release some of the stress we had yesterday we had a huge lunch at a members house and later that night had another huge dinner... we will probably 2 meals a day this whole transfer because the members here love feeding the missionaries and since there's only 2 they will be even more willing to help us out.. but after the dinner we went home a little early to do some heavy planning and arrangement of our investigators and recent converts.. after that we started the construction of MEGA DESK!!!!! we have 7 tables in our apartment so we did some rearrangement and boy does it look good.. we have mega desk, a dinning table, a couch/bed in the front room, a walk in closet with a couch/bed, we have separate bathrooms... we are all alone and it feels super weird.. but its been great so far so we are excited!

Also fun little fact.. here in africa the dogs have gangs.. they run around in pakcs of 6 or so and rule the neighborhood. if a rival dog gang come in they have some seriously battles.. you can hear them barking and yelping from pretty far.. but one time my comp and i witnesses a dog fight and it was crazy.. there was a guy stuck in the middle and he sprinted off so fast.. it was pretty scary.. they rule africa here hahah

 also my comp has the same birthday as mariah so that was fun to find out.. cool stuff
