Week 4 Guys and Gals

Hey all! Or maybe I should say y’all since im in southern Missouri. 

I’m in the field now! I’m in Cape Girardeau. I stayed at the mission home on Tuesday night, and then Wednesday I got assigned to this area with two Elders! So I’m in a trio. But it wasn’t till I had already unpacked that I realized that they were the Zone Leaders. I’m being trained by the ZLs in the biggest zone in the mission. So I’m learning lots about mission politics and the inner workings on how a mission functions. (Isnt that crazy that people try to gun for leadership positions in the mission? Absolutely crazy) I’m very grateful to have such great trainers. 

We have a bunch of people we are talking to. Dennis is a man who read through the entire BoM, D and C, and the Pearl of Great Price in 5 days. He’s crazy and he’s on date for the 5th of December! Also Don and Jeannette. They’re hilarious. They pray like my family does at dinner time. “Hallelujah” “Amen amen 24/7” stuff like that. It’s funny. My comps weren’t used to it, but it didn’t even faze me.  

It’s been a week of ups and downs. I miss my family and friends. But I’m doing the Lords work! And I’m excited for what’s in store for me. 

I love you all!
