Hello! I’ve been in a trio a couple times — the first time was with Elder McFarlane. He was an awesome missionary and Elder Morgan and I learned a ton from him in the week that he was here. He also had a violin that he let me play a few times, and I was absolutely thrilled. We were very sad when Elder McFarlane got transferred back to Phoenix. Last week I was in a trio for a short while again, because one of the other missionary companions went home. Since we were serving two areas, we were very busy!
I actually enjoyed being in a trio. We had a bit longer time we took to do companion study because of the fact that there were three of us. Also it’s easier to plan lessons because it’s three people working together.
Transfers happened on Wednesday though, and we’re back to normal now — but Elder Morgan (my trainer) was transferred! My new companion is Elder Garner. He’s cool and has a really good sense of humour.
Two of our investigators that we’ve been working with forever have committed to a date for baptism finally! They’re a husband and wife and have a three year old daughter, but they have to leave for Mexico shortly afterwards because the husband got denied citizenship again! It’s all good though, they’re really cool people and their testimonies are super strong and they have a lot of faith!
My Spanish is getting better! Today for PDay we watched the 1 hour Joseph Smith movie in Spanish and I actually understood pretty much everything that was being said! I was also able to give a blessing to a lady in the hospital, in Spanish! I had absolutely no idea what I said, but I felt the spirit and she got the blessing that she needed! My companions and I have taught seminary a couple of times in Spanish also! It was fun and we enjoyed it! So yay, my Spanish is being improved, slowly but surely.
As for things that happened this week, well, not a lot actually happened, on the surface. It’s a lot like planting a garden, it takes a lot of time and effort, and at times, it seems like nothing is actually being done. However, eventually, something good will come out of it.
Anyways, that’s pretty much it. I love you all and miss you!
