This week was the first week that I have cried in for quite a long minute. They told me that I am leaving my first area here, and I think I denied thinking about it for too long and it hit me all at once. I was definitely not ready to leave here, but I know that it is all for a purpose. I am going to an area that is called Olanchito, which is known to be one of the hardest areas to be in. It is even more humble than it is here, and everyone always complains about going there, even the people who have never been there. I know I am going to love it for reals. I am leaving as District leader over 6 missionaries, 2 of which are sisters. It will be a new experience for me and it will be good to face new challenges and get a fresh start at everything again. I feel good and bad and it feels like leaving home again honestly.

Aside from that, we had three baptisms this week in my area, and we baptized all three in a river. It went really well and will be a great way to leave my area. I hope to have left it well, and I know that I will have.
I have learned a lot here, and I am glad to have been here for so much time truthfully. I love the people and the culture and everything that there is down here, and it is going to be hard to leave it all one day. It is important to learn everything you can, and to try to be as Christlike as possible. Just getting 1 percent better every day is sufficient.

I have been saying my goodbyes throughout the week, and I am going to be spending the rest of the day today finishing up with that, but most of my pictures are of families and people that I have been with, and the baptisms that we had. I hope you all had a good week and that everything went well for you, I am doing well and the next time I write you I will be in my new area.

I love you all and hope you have all had a good week!
Elder Searle
