Sorry about the late email; yesterday was super busy. This week has been super busy as well with the transfers that happened last week.
Let me tell you how excited I am for this new transfer. I am really excited! My new companion is awesome. Elder Tau is from Hawaii, has been serving for 20 months, and really loves to work. We've met and talked to so many more people than I have talked to in my first two transfers.
One day, we decided to just walk our area. It was an eye-opening experience because we ended up talking to a lot more homeless people than I have been used to. One was a lady whose husband died in '07, and whose second husband "stole everything" from her. It was sad to see, but it was important that we were there to talk to her. We taught her about the Plan of Salvation, and really seemed to feel the Spirit in what we were saying. We got her phone number, so hopefully we can help her get a job and get on her feet again.
We also finished teaching the lessons to the little girl that we have set for baptism, so now she's good to go! I think that she is pretty excited for it too. It'll be exciting to be a part of someone's baptism! There's really nothing like bearing testimony of the Gospel to someone. I can honestly feel the power in what we teach.
Those were just a couple of the experiences that I've had this past week, but I would hope that all of you are having missionary moments of your own. If any of you get some spare time, write me and tell me about them. The reason we have each other is to build each other up with the opportunities and experiences that Heavenly Father helps us to have.
Anyway, I love all of you. Thank you for being who you are, and for the lives that each of you live. Your examples alone have helped want to become better.
Take care and keep in touch!
