My dearest family,
Another week come and gone, and some big news. We heard about the transfer on saturday night. I don't know everything, but here is what i know. Elder Rakats and Ndaye are leaving wednesday, all the new missionaries come in the next wednesday, the 16th. Elder Hales [Elder Rybin's MTC companion] is going to Benin. Elder Potter and Elder Garza are both training (two the other two elders from my generation in togo). Elder Hales is not training. Elder Kognani [he is another missionary in Elder Rybin's apartment] is training a new american, and I'm training a new congolais. I think his name is Elder Kongolo. So like i said big changes. After the mutation [transfer], I will be the oldest (or first to go home) elder in the apartment, and also the elder who has spent the most time in the zone (I was tied with elder hales). I'm most likely going to stay here until january or february. its a pretty huge mutation so we'll see how it goes.
Also before i forget, Curtis HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! your going to be 6! i don't believe it! i can't, i won't. sheesh your getting so old! castle with the dragon, good choice, can't go wrong with dragons.
Prince the son of Mathias and Engonam, is so funny. he reminds me of curtis. when we go over there he loves to look through a gospel art book, that i have. the other day, he finishes to look through it and then stands up and walks into the house with my book and comes out without it just like nothing had happened and starts doing something else. Engonam asks him, "Prince where's the book?" and he says something like oh, i'm going to keep it so i put it in the house. haha. he asks me every time for it.

he said that right after he woke up he prayed and thanked god for his answer, and in the morning when he woke up he prayed again thanking Him for the answer. and he said he's just been so happy all day.
is that awesome or what! he's going to be such a strong member. i think he'll probably go on a mission some day too. wow. it doesnt get better than that. so awesome. i was on top of the world walking home that night. everyone else that wasn't progressing or wasn't getting answers, or even listening, didn't matter, because one by one (like always) God is calling and choosing his elect. What a huge blessing to be a part of it!
