Kearns Week 8: The Best Two Years


Good Morning Everyone!

This week has been great! We taught a ton of people this week and it was great! Our new Zone Leaders Elder Peniar and Vizzini are great and we went on exchanges Tuesday. They cover the YSA (young single adult) Ward in West Jordan and it was fun to go out with them. They are both from South Africa and they have some rad accents. Both of them are white and they are epic.

We had our quarterly interviews with President Palmer, our mission president, on Wednesday at 11:30. One of our Elders in the District, Elder Hernandez,  was sick this week and his companion Elder Leavitt had an interview as well so me and him went together to the interview. It's was cool and I really like President Palmer, we talked about how me and Elder Dunham was doing. He said that since Elder Dunham is leaving and that we are getting a lot of new missionaries next transfer that I might be training next transfer! That caught me off guard. He said that he felt like I was mature enough to do it, but it's crazy to think about it!

But ya, besides the interview, we did a lot of work this week. We mainly just contacted a bunch of people in the new stake we picked up. We got a few new people to work with and that has been really good. We are meeting with this couple that live near to our apartments and they are doing good. They are less actives and they want to come back out to church and get sealed in the temple.

It's hard to believe that's been 2 1/2 months but I'm learning a ton out here! I'm glad that I'm out here in Utah! There are so many people out here that just don't have a fullness of joy in their lives. It's been a great experience to be able to help these people have happiness with their families and to help them draw nearer to God. I've been loving every second out here so far and it's gonna be the best two years!
