This past week was a long, but fast week. We live with members, which is really interesting. It's kind of stressful because you have to follow their rules when in their home and it's hard remembering all of them. But, it's gone good so far.
Our week didn't really go like we wanted it to. Tuesday ended up getting ruined (not really) by us having to go to the mission office to pick up a companionship. One of the Elders in our Zone is training a new missionary and he got his missionary on Tuesday. So, that actually was fun seeing all the new missionaries because we got a group of 30 missionaries which is the largest group we've ever gotten. But it was awesome! Other than that the week was pretty normal. We don't have a ton of work so it's pretty slow right now. Currently, we are in the stage of finding new people to teach. It's gone alright, we found a new investigator , he was potential investigator that Elder Lee and his last companion contacted and he told them we could come back and that's how it got started. The lesson we had with him was awesome! The spirit was super strong in the room and we could tell that he felt it. Coming out of the lesson we were both super excited and pumped that we got a new investigator.
The Zone that I'm over is a pretty awesome Zone and I love them a ton. They are all really hard working missionaries that have already taught me a ton. This last week was pretty humbling for me. I learned a lot, things were pretty tough. It was just hard adjusting to the new area and new companion. Elder Lee is awesome, just new and different in how he does things. But it was really good for me because I've grown a ton. I now have to make a bigger effort to make sure that things get done. It's been really good for me. I'm glad that the Lord has placed me here.
Four of the people in my Zone I've already served around. Two of them have been my Ward mates when I was in Apple Valley (Sister Cornett & Sister Wihongi). And two people in my Zone came out at the same time as me. So, needless to say, I'm super excited to be in the Zone that I am in!
Thanks for all that you do. I keep all of you in my prayers.
