First Week in the Offices...

Hey Everyone...hope everyone is doing alright...
We have had a crazy week greeting and training new missionaries, and also saying goodbye to the Elders and Sisters that went home this last week...I feel like I have spent 2 complete days in the Airport haha. This whole week we have been doing companion exchanges with companionships all around Hermosillo.  My companions and I have had a week full of miracles.  

One companion exchange I had with an Elder Maldonado...We were in a pretty difficult area here in Hermosillo...We walked, contacted and walked and contacted some more...all day long.  We are trying to teach all of the missionaries that walking is the same thing as working....So with this Elder we walked from house to house, knocking doors all of the way to our destinations. We ended up contacting more than 40 people and set appointments to return with more than 20...Elder Maldonado...was really excited to keep going...We had a very good day....At the end of a very long day knocking doors, at 8:15 a man at last answered the door and was super excited to hear our message...He let us in quick and offered food and water and sat down with us...We discussed the Restoration of the Gospel. Later he took the Book of Mormon, from our hands as a Celestial Gift from God, as he accepted the invitation to read and pray... after recieving the Book he was so excited to read it he started reading the introduction before we could leave...At the end of the day I was able to teach about the Diligence...and what blessings are in store for us if we are Diligent...I returned to the house walking a little funny (like a young cowboy after his first day back on the horse) and extremely tired...

It was a wonderful experience, I really noticed how much the other Elders and Sisters look up to us as Mission Leaders...We hope to have this type of experiences with all of the elders in the mission...that is the goal any way ...
Well sure love you guys lots...Hope you have a good week...
Love Elder Child
