Fastest week of the mission

this had to be the fastest week of the mission. it flew by.

so the biggest news is latest investigator. we were able to teach him 3 times this week. one of those times we taught law of chastity and word of wisdom. it was a really good lesson. out of everything the only thing that is going to be hard for him is tea. but he said that he is willing to do it. so we went to the store and bought him herbal tea and gave it to him. he said that he is going to start the switch over soon. we will see what happens with that. he also came to church this week but only for 2 hours  because he had something to do. we will see what happens with him this week.

my comp and i were called to be counselors in the elders quorum this week. basically we are going to have to work a lot more with less actives. we are pretty excited but there is a lot of work to be done. we have 115 people come to church every week but we only have 5 elders in 3rd hour so we are going to have to work hard to get that number to go up.

this week we also did divisions with the assistants. i went with the assistant that was brand new and had only been in his sector for a week. i felt really bad because we kept getting lost but it was still a really good day. i learned a lot. plus a drunk guy tried to fight us. we exchanged words with him and he tried grabbing the assistant but we were too fast. we took off running. he tried chasing us but ended up running into an electric fence. definitely one of the funniest moment of my mission.

my comp is sweet. he is a guy that is always positive and happy. he loves to laugh and work hard at the same time. i’m going to miss him after this change. i have a feeling that his is going to be made zone leader in 3 weeks. he is a special guy.

today for p-day the sisters were in charge of the activity. we went to some zoo type thing and went in a car ride in a caged truck in a lion field. the tour guides threw meat up on the top of the truck and the lions would climb up on top of truck so the lions were literally 2 inches away from us. we were able to pet it and let it lick us. it was pretty sweet. it was definitely a good activity.

the mission is going really well. i am learning so much and i think i can feel my self changing. i can tell my priorities and the way that i think has definitely changed. i wouldn’t trade anything for the mission. i know this church is true.
