The Busy Life...

Hey Everyone...
 
Hope everything is going well in the States...This week has been really crazy...Lots of things have happened...I will try to relate a few of experiences...

The First happened when I was in some companion exchanges with one of our Missionary Secretaries in the Mission Offices....In this mission the Missionary Secretaries work half of the day in the offices then leave and the work the other half in their own area...They have so much work...So I went with Elder Zerkle who is the Financial Secretary...It was actually very interesting...I helped him Balance accounts and organize receipts of the mission (the job for newbies like me) Never in my life would i have thought that one missionary has so many responsibilities to keep the mission on track it is literally insane...Elder Zerkle was very patient with me guiding me along like an actual job...What really impressed me was that right when we left the offices he completely changed he left all of the office stuff in the offices and he started talking about his investigators and everything about his area...It was really cool to see a missionary that has a bunch of work on his plate but is very efficient and effective and does everything that he has to do...We had an excellent companion exchange...

An Update on Daniel...This week he has improved a ton..he has accompanied us many times this week and all of the members are getting to know him and are helping him out...Our Recent Convert Eduardo has taught Daniel and Us how to control ourselves through anxiety...and how to calm the strong pulse of strong addictions...I have learned more about pshychology in this week then i have in my whole life... We went Saturday to go visit Daniel and his parents were there and they told us that he had left...and they didnt know where he was at...that usually means he isnt doing very good things or he gets tempted to do those things...We were really scared...In that moment we offered a prayer with the family to ask specifically that he would come back safe and sound...literally 2 minutes later he walked in the door with a soda to share (apparently he went to buy a soda to share)...It was absolutely a miracle...

Another experience that has been kind of funny these past couple of weeks is that I am giving everyone hair cuts..haha I gave one to Daniel, My Companion and 3 or 4 other missionaries in these past weeks haha it is super funny and nice because I am getting more practice and I am getting pretty dang good..It is actually a surprise...It might just be in my blood...I see now why my Mom loves cutting hair...It is very relaxing...haha I am getting better on covering the mistakes I make too Heehee...

Thats all for this week
Thanks so much for your love and support...
