WEEK 82 - LOTS OF SWITCH UPS
This is a photo intensive post! The Elders were in mid cycle week 81 and Bryce emailed home saying there were changes in his District. Shaw went home so there was need for an Elder in Parral. That meant Templeton was taken from the Delicias district and moved to Parral. This meant Templeton's comp was now solo so they took the comp from another Elder that returned home and paired him with Templeton's comp in Delicias. (Still with me?) Bryce was kinda bummed Temps was changed to a new area. He liked having him in the district.
Week 82 rolls around and 5 days after Temps leaves, Bryce had emergency changes also. Bryce was moved from Delicias to Chihuahua and is serving in the Chuviscar Zone. The Zone Leader in Chuviscar was ill and they needed a replacement. (Thanks to Juve for the quick text to me telling me my son had moved). So I have no idea who will move in to be comps with Elder Lopez. The end of the cycle and real changes are in two weeks. I'm sure it will all be sorted out then.
This makes comp 14 for Bryce. That's a lot of moving around! Also on a sweet note. We mailed Christmas gifts to Bryce and to his comp Elder Lopez (He is from the Dominican Republic). Bryce also purchased a few things for him in Mexico. It was heartbreaking and endearing at the same time to hear this was the first time ever Elder Lopez had received a gift on Christmas! I'm so glad we had the inspiration to postpone mailing the package until we knew which comp Bryce had. We were able to send items of the correct size. Bryce said Elder Lopez had tears in his eyes and wore his new jacket all Christmas day. In the photo below I see he's even wearing it out while they are having ice cream. We meant it for a pday/casual jacket but we are just happy he loves it so much!
