December 4th Transfers

Eric wrote that as much as he loves the area he has been in, he is ready for a change. December 4, 2013 is transfers, and he is hoping to get moved to a Chuukese island.

Teaching in Zone Meeting

With his Mission Mamma, Sister Norton

A few days before transfers, Eric was told to pack all his stuff. So he knows he will be moving out of the Dededo Guam Zone area. He has had the opportunity to be a part of 30 baptisms by his count, and he has loved the work. He measures true success, however, by the feelings of those he serves. He has tried to keep that focus.

He werote that the weekend he baptized two people, Roeely Ranten and Jackson Aritos, the whole ceremony was in Chuukese. He then was able to translate the Ward welcomes in Sacrament at the pulpit. Elder Ringwood of the First Quorum of the Seventy was there. He was a little nervous, but his Chuukese has gotten really good and it went well.
