"The Most Inexperienced But Most Excited"

Hola mi familia y mis amigos,
Greetings from Millcreek once again.  I get to stay here at least another transfer.  One of the most exciting parts about this transfer is how solid my district is. 
brief explanation of how our missions are divided.  There are 300ish missions around the world, each with 100-300 missionaries.  Missions are divided into zones.  In our mission, we have 10 zones that are spread throughout our mission boundaries.  In each zone in our mission there are 2-4 districts.  Each district has 3-5 companionships of missionaries. 
We probably have the most inexperienced but most excited district in the world right now.  We only have one person who has been out on his mission for more than 10 months.  Only three people have ever been transferred (meaning changing the area they are serving in).  Most of the missionaries have been out six months or less. 
For anyone who has served a mission, they know that that is not normal.  But, we're super excited. 
Update on Cristina and Bernardino:
They were in Wyoming nearly all this past week so we couldn't talk with them too much, but tonight we're meeting with them and they have already said they want to go to church on Sunday.  I'll let you know about them next week because there isn't too much to work with this week. 
Love you all,
-Elder Colton
