          WEEK 35 ..... First week in COALINGA 

Hola From my new area COALINGA!
Ok so this area is really cool, its an older ward so there's not to many middle age people, just kids and parents and 5 younger couples. It's really awsome the members are so nice. It's another small town, it kinda reminds me a little of Vulcan, Alberta. It's out in farm country. It's awsome to get here you just go past the middle of nowhere and then keep going and you find the sweet little town of Coalinga. We also cover 3 outlining towns called Avenel, Huron, and Kellington city. We don't really have to much time to get to the out to thoughs towns to much because we have alot of work here in Coalinga.
We have a bunch of investigators here and its really amazing. There is one family, the Ramirez family, they are coming to church and we are going to commit them to baptism tonight for the 26th of June! I'm really excited because this area is amazing. I can't wait to see what blessings unfold from Heavenly Father this week.
My new companion is of course a district leader that's the 5th companion in a row. It's funny because Elder Larsen, my old companion was released as district leader to become a trainer so of course I had to get moved. My new companion's name is Elder Eagar. He is a really good missionary, he is really humble and has alot of love for the area, people and for the work. We get along very well and all is going great, this is going to be a great transfer I can feel it.
So fun fact about Coalinga is that it's the hottest place in the mission. So hooray, its going to be like biking into an oven pretty soon. Good thing though because I'll just sweat out all of the fat and as long as I eat well I'll shed some major pounds.
This last Saturday I was able to go to the Temple and better yet we went with a recently reactivated family and got to see them get sealed for time and all eternity.
It was one of the greatest things I have ever seen and I am so grateful for the chance that I have to be able to do that someday, as we live the commandments and do all the things we need to, that is when we can enjoy true and everlasting happiness.
So if that wasn't cool enough it turns out that Madera 3rd ward had there temple trip that day! So I got to see the first ward I served in at the Temple! It was awesome and even better one of my recent converts was there! It was great to see the Gospel bless the lives of the people I knew and worked with, and they even remembered me :D so it was great they all said they missed me a ton and that they wanted me to come back to Madera.
That would be way cool and I know that the Lord will send me back one day. But right now I found out my MTC companion, Elder Kirk is now serving in Madera! Its awesome, man I'm so glad that I am here on a mission, there is nothing better that I could be doing right now. There are so many blessings that I have seen and I know that I will never be able to deny the truthfulness of this church. I know I have said it before but I declare with Job " I know that my Redeemer liveth". I'm so grateful for the great opportunity I have to serve, and I can't wait for the miracles this week.
Thank you for all that you do and for all the prayers and love. That's going to do it for me this week, till next time you stay classy Montreal.
Love Elder Jason Glowa
