Hey Everyone. Last Week was changes which meant the week was mostly a blur, with tons of running around and very little sleep. After 6 weeks as financial secretary I cam into these transfers much more prepared and things went really smoothly which was way nice. Also I now know the route to the airport well enough to do it with my eyes closed, which is a skill that comes in handy after two or three mornings of getting up at ! The worst part of changes week is not actually the early mornings, but rather the fact that we have barely any time to work in our area. The week went really well though overall and we are really excited for this new group of missionaries because the seemed like a group full of future leaders.
This week has been great up to this point. We have been able to get out of the office early almost everyday and have seen many of the blessings that come from diligent missionary work! Including several new awesome families. One of the highlights for me this week was getting our house all organized and cleaning out the old stuff that we no longer had use of and taking it all to a poor neighborhood in our area and giving it all away. It is way nice to have all that stuff out of the house, but it was even nicer to see all that stuff in the hands of people who really needed it. We just parked the giant truck and had a member spread the word and in a matter of minutes the truck was emptied. It always feels good to give away and see brighten someone elses life. It is often so easy to take for granted what we have and the ability we have to improve the lives of others. Now of course that was a good reminder of how we have something else to share that doesn't just provide happiness in the moment, but can really help people have a happiness that stays with them. The Gospel really is the gift that can do the most for people in their lives if they chose to accept it.
Alright that's all for this week. Take care.
