P-day is Tuesday this week because of transfers, thus, every six weeks p-day will be on Tuesday. That is why the letter today instead of yesterday.
|Fellow Wyoming man Elder Sorensen and I! He is from Evanston!|
Bad news. Some of our investigators got kicked out of their home and so we won't be able to teach them anymore. It was very out of the blue so it was surprising. We had a lesson with the Stuckis tonight and Sister Stuckis baptism got pushed back a little bit. But it should be here in a couple of weeks!
Big changes!! We had the World Wide Broadcast today and we have quite a few changes! Along with the daily schedule changing and the key indicators we are no longer allowed to have dinner with people more than once a week. Some missionaries were super upset about it because they now have to cook every night! We had five lessons today so we were pretty booked!
Today we met with President and he asked to me be a trainer this upcoming transfer. I am pretty excited about it but am a little worried because I want to make sure I do a super good job with my greenie! We told our bishop that one of us was leaving and he is super mad about it because he personally asked President to keep us together in this area.
Today was the Train the Trainers meeting, which is a meeting that all the missionaries that are going to train meet and talk about skills and things that will help as we train new missionaries. There are 6 English elders coming out. Elder Couch (MTC comp) is training as well. I was excited for him!
A part member family moved into the ward today and so we were able to help them move their stuff. I love doing service so it was fun to help them out. Tonight was transfer calls...so Elder McClure and I decided we better tell President that our bishop is upset about the transfer deal and it didn't go well. We got chewed out by President twice for even telling our bishop when we found out and so it was discussed between President Walker and the stake president that it would be best to go against the original inspiration and to keep Elder McClure and I together so we could continue to try to help Bishop not be so mad. We found out as well that we would be in a trio with a missionary from Brazil, named Elder Beccari. He will come to the area on Tuesday. He came out with me but I don't know much about him. It was an eventful night and was very frustrating.
Today was pretty rough, we didn't have anyone at church. Elder McClure is kinda bummed out about transfers. He got released as the district leader and he was not happy about that. We had two lessons tonight which went well.
Church attendance this week was a little pathetic but we do have baptisms scheduled we have five people with a date so there will be some coming up. It has been cool to see things pick up in the area since I got here none of these five had dates.
Love, Elder Call
