Wow what a week! I feel like I had transfers to another area now that we are covering two areas. We basically work in one of the two areas every other day, switching off so we don't end up walking a ton! This week we were able to find all the positive investigators the elders left in their area. We are getting to know the people and the area little by little. It has been really fun.
My companion is super awesome as well. We actually have really similar personalities. He is from Quito, Ecuador. It has been really awesome to teach with him because he has a really strong testimony of the Atonement and shares it with everyone. Even if the lesson is about a different topic, he will always relate it back to the atonement. It's so true because any gospel topic can be and should be related back to the atonement of Jesus Christ.
It has also been really fun to be district leader of our tiny little district. Just another companionship. The elder in the other companionship is training a new elder from Utah. It has been really interesting to reflect back when I was in that position- I have come a long way since then and I hope that I can make a positive impact on the new elder as he is transitioning into being in the mission field.
We had stake conference this weekend, and it was really good (Even though we couldn't hear very well) haha Elder Maravilla, an area 70 and also President and Sister Ferman spoke. I really liked Sister Ferman´s talk. She talked about Charlie and the chocolate factory explaining that the gospel is like the golden ticket. We need to do everything we can to find the gospel and put it into practice in our lives.
Have a great week!
