Hello Everybody!‏

Lohberg & Toledo power team!
Welllllpppp, we had changes yesterday, Elder Toledo got the call Sunday of all the people who were going to have changes, and it turns out that every single area in our district had changes haha. Elder Toledo got sent to be zone leader in Cartago. I have officially declared that I am the trainer of zone leaders, because I have now trained two. Andddddd, I´m still here in San Francisco, Heredia, however, I will be training a new missionary (Don´t know if it will be a latino or a gringo still, but we shall see=) ) and then I got assigned as district leader; in fact today was the first real meeting that I have directed and taught, it was cool. So, Elder Toledo left yesterday to go to Cartago and I will be with Elder Hugie from Idaho who was the district leader in the other district of our zone, which is super cool because he´s always given me advice. He´ll be going home thursday, so we are going to go to the office tonight, and then tomorrow I will receive my new missionary-companion and he will stay in the office to go home. 

I´m very grateful for this opportunity to be able to train a new missionary, and to be a district leader. I know that the Lord doesn´t give us anything we can´t do, the Lord loves us, His path isn´t always easy, but it is clear to see and it can be followed. I am thankful for all the love and support you all show me, I love being a missionary and I´m going to try and love every moment of these two years. Time passes by quickly, but the memories and the friends we will make will be with us for eternity, I know this is true.

 Transfers are held in Central Parque in San Jose

**from emailing back and forth:
Aaron: allo
clearing out of the "danger zone"

Mom: hello!! how are you?!!! oh and since you are the "trainer of zone leaders" - then are you training yourself? lol

Aaron:Good Good, Todo bien, todo bien=) I´m gunna receive my kid tomorrow morning.. and breakfast i think=DDDDDD

Mom: So - giving birth eh? you will have a son - a son old enough to shave! lol.  Yes! You will probably get breakfast! YUM!!  Heard president is in the states - had hip replacement - do you know when they expect him to return?
How many elders are in your district? and are there any sisters there as well?
Elder Henry is in your district right? is he training as well?

view from the front window - old apartment
Aaron: yeah he is in the other companionship of elders in my district, no, he trained a kid for his first transfer in his old area in alajuela, i think i will only stay one transfer of my kids training, both the districts in our zone have 4 elders and 6 sisters, so there are 12 sisters in the zone and 8 elders. We´ve known for a while he was gunna have that, he told us he would be back in 2 weeks, really you are supposed to start walking the day after hip replacement, so should be okay 

Mom: so 2 districts in your zone (if I understand correctly) and you are DL for one of them - and have 2 sets of elders and 3 sets of sisters in your district? 2 wards in Heredia then - both elders? where do the sisters serve then?

last time in this room
Aaron: Yeah, two sets of elders in Heredia, we are in the stake center, with 2 wards, 2 elders for each ward, the sisters are in a branch, Santo Domingo, they have two branches i think? or maybe only one, but their are two sets of sisters in Santo Domingo, and 1 set in the branch of San Rafael. 

Mom: you head out tonight for the mission home or tomorrow I forgot what you said - if it's tonight do you stay with someone out there or where?

Aaron: im with the missionary who isgoing to die right now, he has to go to the office tonight, with all histhings, so im going with him and ima sleep there, which normally trainers dont do, and then i will go in the morning with the secretaries or something to get my kid and eat brreakfasttttttt

**after last weeks email where he told me there had been gunshots right outside his door - I messaged Sister Wilkinson and explained what was going on there - she said "i talked to him today - he has moved - he is safe - he is living in an apartment that the bishop owns. Live is good - and he is happy! he had told me they wanted to move before - but they wanted to move just because it was a "better" place. I just checked my text messages and he never said anything about shootings and Drug Lords.........bless these cute Elders - the Lord truly does watch over them!"

Bishops truck LOADED down with EVERYTHING!

Mom: so tell me - is your new place - I see the picture - the kitchen is crazy!! looks small which you said it would be - but is it the same cost as the other place? it's a better area at least - which is good!  whose truck moved you? the bishops?

Aaron: yeah bishops truck, he wanted to do it all in one move lol.. he was like, you guys didn't believe me.. didn't believe me.. it´s a bit cheaper, 40 mil, 80 bucks

Aaron: ima get fat when i come home lol.. i just want to eat.. a ton.. of american food=P.. year and a half more=P=P
View of apartments - they are in the top flo

Mom: lol! your mac n cheese all gone now? can you buy more there?  What about beef jerky etc? If you could have one thing to eat right now from here what would it be?

Aaron: yeah they have that mac in pricesmart, cosco, its like 5 boxes for like 8 or 10 bucks i think? the jerky gone, i want fetching teriyaki and innout and your fried chicken and your chicken tacos and fetching enchallads and the frozen chimichungas and burritos.
