Changes Are Coming

Hey All
We are still working hard out here. We had a great week both in numbers and in other things. We had zone interview training, where we had the APs and the mission president speak to us as a zone. We all got super pumped. We have a great little branch in galway, but they don't really work towards growing it to be big enough to be a ward. They are all nice but kind of laid back. We have anywhere between 30 and 35 people come each week. We set a branch goal of 50 for the end of the year. That would be great. The hardest thing is getting people to church. The building is in an inconvenient location, so we got permission from our district president (like a stake president) to look for a new building. We still had this cool girl from south korea come to church. We currently have 2 people scheduled for baptism however it is going to take a lot of work to get them to church. Getting them to commit to baptism is the easy part. 
   We have moves call this sunday and it is going to be a massive moves. The crazy part is that next transfer is only going to be 4 weeks long. The Mtc is going to be extended to 3 weeks and we are shifting our transfer schedule to line back up with it. I still haven't had a normal 6 week transfer. This is going to be a great week because we will be using the excuse that Elder williams will be leaving next week, so we will get to meet with a lot of our former investigators and potentials.
   We had a young girl from south korea come to church with us. She was funny and super nice. But it was a little awkward because we had President Roy, our district leader, come speak to the branch about missionary work and why it is important to grow the branch. But we taught gospel principles and had a great lesson with her. We then had a munch and mingle after church which she stayed for. She loved it how everyone was nice to her and were very friendly.
 I hope everyone has a great week.
