Hello, small group email this week!! Sorry. I got called in to be an office elder. So I'm being trained here. I will be driving a van everywhere! I'm not sure how it's going to be here. It was a really big surprise to be put here. I am in charge of technology here in the office. I work with the President for the transfers as well. He gives me tasks and then I do them. I'm surprised. But President interviewed me and told me he is bringing his best baptizing missionairies into the office on the advice of the area presidency. I've mixed feelings but I will go with it. Wish me luck. I will be in a different ward at transfer time (two weeks). For now I'm still working in my area at night but am here at the office training in the day. John Loyd and Jasper will be baptized next week on the 20th!! I really can't wait. It's been a blessing to teach them and I love them so much. Fred will be in March and so I won't be there for that. Bummer. But I love him and am proud of him too.

Turns out Dexter got baptized!! (one of my favorite teenagers in Coron). I saw that today while I was in the office! Haha I can't believe he finally made it... I'm so happy for him! My new companion will be Elder Monson. Bishops nephew. I really can't believe that. I always knew we would be companions at some point so I'm excited for that.

Also turns out I will be in the office for about 5 transfers... That's a long time. But it will be a good time. It's not what I would have ever guessed but I will love it anyway and do my best! But I'm excited for my calling. President Ostler said he felt really inspired to put me here. So I don't know what this will be like but I will go for it. We still get to teach and have an area and stuff. But we have to finish all the stuff in the office first. So we often get out around 4:30-5. But 4 is the goal. We got to go bowling for district activity which was great!
Love Elder Roberts
