So many crazy things happened this week, I'm not even sure where to begin...
Thursday morning (transfer meeting), Elder Davis and I walk outside with his luggage to load up Edna (Edna is the name of our 2013 Dodge Caravan). We couldn't find her. We looked everywhere, but she was gone. She was towed in the middle of the night! We spent all day trying to get our car back so we could make it tothe transfer meeting on time. We didn't make it on time, we actually made it for the last 10 -20 minutes of the meeting. It was pretty hectic.
My new companion is Elder Grow, from Gransville, Utah. He is a hardworking, obedient missionary, who's excited to dig deep and get some work done! It'll be exciting to see how everything goes.
We taught David this week about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The discussion kind of got out of hand; David had a lot of interesting questions that required a lot of explaination. At the end, he said he was impressed with how often we shared scriptures from the Bible. I was so glad to hear that! I've been working a lot on memorizing scriptures for the lessons. It was cool to feel the Holy Ghost bring things to my rememberance in the moment.
It's pretty sad to see David go, he's leaving for Panama for 2 months. I hope I'm still here to teach him when he gets back. I'm not worried about him, though. He said he knows where the church is in Panama, so he'll contact them so he can get the lessons!
We weren't able to get a hold of Sammy this week. I was really hoping to teach him a lot so he can be prepared for his baptism on the 18th of January.
Christmas is so soon! I can feel the Spirit of Christmas, but it's not complete without snow. It's been soggy and wet, at 60 degrees for the past few days. I'm wearing a short sleeved shirt in the middle of December!
Elder Grow and I were fortunate enough to teach the Gospel Essentials class last Sunday. The usual teacher wasn't able to attend, so he called us beforehand and told us to "freestyle" it. It was pretty fun - we read through parts of Luke 2, and shared our feelings about the birth of Christ and the atonement.
Thank you all for your love, prayers, packages, and support!!
