Annandale is wack. There're so many Koreans here. A member took us out
to lunch and told us this area has the 2nd largest Korean population.
California is 1st. I really like it here, because our eastern boundary
touches the Alexandria 2nd ward (one other area I've served in).
Transfers were awesome. I was shocked and stoked when I heard
President call Elder Johnson and I to be companions. We were in the
same MTC district together, so it's cool to see how much we've both
changed. Our teaching has gotten a LOT better.
The first few days right after transfers were so busy! Nobody else in
the zone has a bike rack except for us, so we were driving to and from
apartments late into the night dropping off bikes, suit cases and
luggage. We were also staying up late planning for what our Vision for
the zone is going to be his transfer. I'll give you more info on what
our vision is going to be later, but lemme tell you... It's gonna be
Church was really good, the ward members are kind, and we've been fed
every night since I've been here. There's a strong support of member
missionary work. We've already taught 1 lesson this week with an
investigator in a member's home (we call those Ideal Lessons, and we
are tracking those as a "mission wide key indicator"). We have two
more Ideal Lessons set up for tonight. So cool!
This ward just had 2 baptisms a couple of weeks ago, and Elder Johnson
and I are excited to work together to pump out 3 - 4 more in the next
couple of transfers!
Have an awesome week, everybody!!
