"I got changes! On Tuesday I basically just said goodbye to people and the last family that I said goodbye to was the familia Herrera. When I told them I was leaving, Maria, the mom, just started crying. She was saying how it was such little time, but that she had gotten so attached already. I promised that I would come back to visit after I finished my mission and through her tears she said Pero De Verdad! which means 'but seriously'. So I told them all to keep going to church and that I would visit them. Maria gave me a cool table cloth that her mom made out of tipica fabric. It is way awesome. When I was saying goodbye Lucha and Isabell were crying a lot and so was Patricia. Then Allison, the 4 year old, was really upset that I was leaving and started to cry. So I was REALLY sad to leave that place. I pray every day that my companion and the new missionary there are doing a good job with them.
I was very sad to leave Utatlan. At changes, when they went through all the zones and my name wasn't called, I knew I was going to Zona Zacapa, the hottest zone in the mission because I have already been in Zona Portagua. I am in the area Linda Vista 1 in Chiquimula. My new companion is Elder Egan."
