Well. I've sat through a lot of
these in my mission, but now it's my chance to run them.
This is such a turn
around. I love this assignment but there are no breaks. Every week until the
end of the transfer we have big things going on. This week two zone conferences
and a temple trip with the new missionaries. Next week two zone conferences and
an MLC plus all the ZTMS. Then two zone confernces the week after and the next
week another training. It's going to be AWESOME!
We were hoping/planning
on two baptisms this past week but they got postponed till this week. Now our
goal is three and there is a good chance we will make it.
I've got to tell y’all
about my new favorite investigator, Craig. He's so funny. He is 56 and has
studied with the jdubs for 20 years but he started reading the Book of Mormon
and now he wants to get baptized. He came to church, he's halfway done with the
book and we just met him last Sunday night. It's awesome. He knows the bible so
well but he loves the Book of Mormon because it testifies so much of the Savior.
It's been awesome to see him read with an open heart and receive a witness. I
love teaching those with real intent.
Last Friday we got to do
an hour-long Q&A session at a sisters conference. That was cool. Elder
Sharp and I had mics and we just took questions from the audience. It was
probably one of the scariest moments of my whole mission - so many women.

I went on an exchange
with Elder Puga. He's awesome. It's cool to see how much he's grown. He was a
junior companion when I was first his zone leader in Central. Now he's a zone
leader! The 'rank' is not the growth, but it's indicative. He is still just as
humble but he is now confident which has given him a lot of spiritual power.
I hope rugby is going
well. I wish I could get on the pitch. Go Blackhawks!
I got my 'trunky' packet
today. All my going home information. I haven't read it yet. We found a lot of new
investigators this week. Life is so good.
