Our Interview Blew My Mind (Week #70)

I've worked with Elder V a few times this transfer but I'd only met him maybe twice before. He's a really good guy. We worked super hard to find some new people to teach. We found a few. 

We met the new mission president this last week for interviews and had a day long meeting with him yesterday. The guy is amazing. He's a little like Jeffrey R. Holland. He's gonna tell it like it is and he doesn't care. He has some of the highest faith I've ever seen.

We haven't seen either R or his daughter this week....kinda dissappeared. 

So V ended up coming to church this Sunday! She's finally in town! So we're going to work with her this week. I think her brother is just barely starting out on his papers. 

What has been your biggest challenge this week?We've been working super hard to reach our goal and it didn't happen. We pulled our weight so I'm sure we'll see the fruits soon.

What has been your biggest concern?We feel like something is up with the zone but we can't really put our finger on it. They're not up to their potential so we're having a meeting today to see what's up. We'll see how it goes.

What has been your biggest success?The meeting yesterday left me pretty inspired. The new pres is an awesome guy.

Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?President Torres. Our interview blew my mind. He told us as soon as we finish the prayer, he knows exactly who we are and who we'll be. It was pretty awesome.

What has been your most significant tender mercy?We met a guy who really needs our help. His name is Brother B and he's super depressed. His wife died a few months ago and he's having a really hard time. So we're going to snap him out of it.

What are you looking forward to this coming week?We're going to work super hard with V.

Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?I was reading King Benjamin's speech this morning. Talked a lot about service and how we can never fully repay the lord for what he's done for us. He's given us everything and we can't really ever come close
to repaying him.

Love you guys!
Elder Hess

this is what I live with...
