This week is my birthday!
We had a great week this last week and saw a lot of big miracles with our zone. We have had to do a few baptismal interviews and have more coming up this next week and then we have some baptisms coming up which is super exciting!
It is a wonderful time to be serving in the South Zone. It is weird that the transfer is ending so fast! It feels like it just started and I don't appreciate that feeling. I feel like we never have enough time in a day but also that if we had more time I would probably pass out.
We have two baptisms in our ward this week and we are stoked about that. Both investigators were mostly taught by my companion and I. So it is fun for us to see them both make it to the starting line safely. My companion is a great guy. He loves to give me hugs and stuff which is nice to keep up a loving relationship.
I love this area! We are seeing miracles everyday. It is hard to keep up the energy all the time but I find that even though we are doing some tired finding it is still smart finding and is producing some great results.
Recently we have found a lot of super cool people, and we are super excited to keep it up in this wonderful area.
Seeing that this will probably be my last area, it is sort of interesting to see myself in a different light. I always looked up to the older missionaries and now since I am undeniably the older missionary, I feel like my every effort is looked at as the right thing, so I have to always be trying my hardest.
I have learned a lot about just being positive on exchanges and I have found through just listening and being happy I can help a lot more than trying to be more aggressive in recommending ways to improve.
I love this gospel and I love you!
