How is everyone doing?! This week has been really interesting. I got my new companion, Elder Parry, last week and it's been really interesting getting used to a new companion. Luckily he is awesome so far. Everyone that we have been by has really seemed to like him and I'm starting to get the feeling that I was only here for the last few months just to get it ready for him :P. But otherwise this week hasn't been that exciting, just a lot of driving to places and getting Elder Parry situated. But it's been good nonetheless. With him we've been able to set up 2 different appointments with some LA members that we have been wanting to see for the last few weeks. It's been really cool.
One of the weirdest things that I am having to learn is how to teach with someone who has completely different teaching styles. With Elder Guerrette there was a lot of me just sitting and letting him do the talking and there was a lot more back and forth with the people we taught. Elder Parry is just a little different, but those differences are teaching me new things that I didn't think about. It's the differences in life that make us grow and learn. It's not the funnest process because there are some things that he does that annoy me, but I know it will work out.
Elder Parry and I started a exercise thing called T25. I don't know if you have heard about it but it's kind of like P90x but in 25 minutes. I'm already hurting. But it's good for me, the interesting part is how I'm going to do the 'eating healthy' part when I don't control what I eat half the time, but it'll be good.
We didn't get to meet with any of the people that we have been working with this week because of cancellations and transfers, but this week is starting to look much more promising. Every day is a new adventure.
BTW, I've uploaded new pictures over the last week, but I didn't get all of them. Also I have seemed to have lost the memory stick and need to find it to take more and upload the rest. :( Sorry, I'll find it soon. I love you guys and miss you but I love being here. Hope you guys have a great week and I'll talk to you next week!
