Life is super weird now. I only found out my greenie wasn't coming on transfer day until the night before. He comes on Wednesday apparently and the only thing I know about him is that his first name is Randazzle. My comp right now is Elder B. He's a good dude from Far West, Utah. He likes to have a good time. I like him a lot.
President Maluenda is one of the most inspired individuals I've ever met. We have interviews with him like every couple months or so. He's just a goofy guy who loves to joke around but is really down to business when he needs to be. He always says exactly what you need to hear in interviews and stuff.
Y, J's mom, is actually looking really good to be baptized. Most of the members are doing really good at supporting us. We get along with them really well.
We didn't really get a lot of missionary opportunities from the funeral cause they all lived in like Arkansas and places far away, but the member felt loved and came to church so that was a plus.
The bike is good and the miles are doing ok. We spend a fair amount of time in the car just driving to the places where we'll bike. It takes at least 20 minutes to get to anywhere we can work.
Elder P ended up going to the Laredo North zone to be a zone leader.
What has been your biggest challenge this week?Leading the area now. I'm the only one that knows where stuff is and how to get there and everything. So making sure we're being effective and visiting the right people.
What has been your biggest concern?Miles. We've had to go all over the place so we have to be really careful with them...
What has been your biggest success?We got Y to come to church!! We had a regional conference a ways away and she wants to come to church but stuff comes up. So this week we finally got them to come!
Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?The M family and the Fs. They're pretty much one of the few young families around here and they're awesome. They love to joke around and they're going to help prank the greenie when he comes!
What has been your most significant tender mercy?Having a week to prep for the greenie. Getting used to leading an area and everything like that. I'm sure it'll come in handy.
What are you looking forward to this coming week?Getting Randazzle!!! and seeing if we can get Y to come to church again with the rest of her family.
Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.I'm working on showing love for people still. So I'm going to look for service a lot.
Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?
I heard a talk by Tad R. Callihan or something like that that talks about the "blueprint" and why Christ's church has been restored to what it is. It was pretty amazing and gave me some good ideas of what to teach to people.
Hope y'all have a great week!
Love you guys!
