So a lot has happened in one week! Been a really challenging and rewarding week! So to start off Elder Smith got transferred out of Sutherland! He got assigned two new companions from the US that are assigned Mandarin Speaking! They are both from Utah! That left me with Elder Boden and I am his new trainer now instead of
Smith! So I am now a senior companion/trainer and I am running the Sutherland area! I had some trouble adjusting to Smith leaving so fast because he was like one of my best friends honestly! I have been relying on the Lord a whole lot for help to be able to train and be in charge of an area and just to be able to adjust to the new change! The Lord has not left me alone! He has been here with me every step of the way :) The actual transfer doesn't happen untilbut the new Mandarin speakers came in a week and a half early! So is Transfers and we will find out if we are leaving the area, getting a new comp, or training, etc! I hope I stay in Sutherland because I really like it here! So my P day will be just so you all know :) Oh and GREAT NEWS!! Rolf our investigator is getting baptised ! Keep him in your prayers! Here is my weekly run down for you's!
I have learned a lot about submitting myself to the Lord's will this week. I am not great at doing it yet and it is a constant battle but I am trying my best to do so! I know that everything happens for a reason and it will all be for my benefit! I truly know the Lord answers prayers! I have already seen it time and time again on my mission! I love being out here, it honestly is the HARDEST thing I have ever done I can't lie to you. Not every day is the best and it can be a drag! Sometimes I hate it here and want to quit, but then I remember that it is not about me!! It is about doing what the Lord has asked! I am doing my best to forget myself and just do the Lord's will! The mission may be hard and it can suck at times but all the great experiences and good times out weigh the bad times! All the blessings and good experiences make it all worth it!! I love you all have a good week! Don't be afraid to shoot your boy an email or two or even a letter would be sweet, it's only 2.75 to send one.... :) Have a good week!!
