I'm doing great. My new comp is Elder P who was born in Clackamas but right now lives in Utah. It's way different being in a big city (traffic for one) but I like it. It's a little more like home than George West was.
I had to open my Christmas package because I got it transfer night and it wouldn't fit otherwise...Thank you so much!! The sweaters and shirts are perfect!
It's been a little stressful. Getting used to an area is always weird. It's good to experience new stuff. Sister B gave me her last Dr Peppers as a Christmas present though! It was so nice of her. Made my day.
My companion is a great guy and he knows all the area pretty well. I miss Elder E a lot. He
was a great dude. But I'll see him on Tuesday. We're having a mission-wide Christmas conference thing in McAllen.
What has been your biggest challenge this week?
Getting used to the area. Things here are way different than George West. There, if I made a wrong turn I could flip a u-ie pretty much wherever I wanted. Here, we'd die. So I gotta figure my crap out haha!
What has been your biggest concern?
We cover 3 branches and all Laredo is trying to become a stake.
What has been your biggest success?
We have an awesome district. 2 of my favorite missionaries, Elders A and G are here and this district is really close. We're the only ones with a car so we drive them all around.
Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?
President L. He's one of the branch presidents here, and he is a major go-getter. Like he's awesome. He's really driven to make this branch a ward. And we're going caroling with him and his family tonight!
What has been your most significant tender mercy?
Our district leader is awesome. His name is Elder Y and he's the kindest dude ever. He helps out with everything. Having a kind district leader makes the work a lot simpler.
What are you looking forward to this coming week?
Skyping and Christmas conference and all that good crap.
Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.
Meet at least 5 less actives.
Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?
Alma 37:6. By the small stuff we're doing now, Laredo can be a stake.
Love you guys! Have a great Christmas!!
