Summary of email:
* He found out about being District Leader on Saturday
* Everything is okay, no need to fret over why he was stressed last week, it was about a dreadful
trip to the airport (isn't allowed to explain)
*He leaves this Wednesday and hasn't started packing yet, will do so all day today and tomorrow he
and Yasli Nahle will be split up. He's going to miss him--refers to him as a brother!
* He has a lot of stuff to pack, so we will be getting a lot of it in the mail in a package!
* His new companion will be Yasli Earl
* He still loves us!
So, Saturday we got transfer calls and I'm getting shipped to Ankara, which is wayyy different than Istanbul. It's in the middle of the country, only 6 million people and a lot less volunteers. I'm sad to leave Istanbul, but excited to see what Ankara's like. I've been with Yasli Nahle ever since we got back from Germany in October. Today is my last day with him. I've learned so much from him and we've become like brothers. It'll be weird having a new companion, but I'm so excited for what's ahead! Not much to report for this week. Although, we went back to that Syrian refugee place and helped them with their boy scout program. They have a Turkish guy who is a volunteer and we were helping him with those crazy Arabic boys haha. I wish I could stay for that. Arabic kids are so cool! They fight all of the time, but it isn't because they're mad, but like they're baby cubs playing around. We gave our Nigerian friend a baptism date--so sweet! Also our friend who had his pool party two months ago gave his first talk in sacrament meeting and he killed it! It was super sad saying good-bye to him. Well, I love you all!
