it has been an interesting few days to say the least. elder smith arrived on Wednesday, and i sent elder Mcfarlane away. the two of them are completely different people. completely opposite personalities. elder smith has been out for 21 months and has this transfer and one more before he is done. he is by far the most obedient missionary in the mission, by a long shot.
some of the scriptures that have helped me are 3 Nephi 12:10-12, Alma 42:31, 1 Corinthians 10:13, Isaiah 41:10, Alma 7:11-13, Mosiah 14:3-6. i will stop there. i can keep going for a while.
we don't have anything too exciting going on. we did find a family up near the top of the area that came to church on Sunday. we have also been receiving quite a few more referrals to go see people. we are still looking for some solid people to teach since we still don't have many at all. we have also been going out on bikes around town a bit more too, trying to keep our car mileage under control so we don't run out like we have come very close to doing every month. so far so good.
i was hoping that with transfers that i would not have our district leader for a companion. i did not get that wish. and we have 2 more missionaries that we have do exchanges with in Brunswick. so now instead of doing 4 exchanges we have to do 6 exchanges. oh well.
i think you are all very busy back at home. i am doing good out here. i did get the new shirts, thank you so very much. i pretty well have everything that i need for now.
i hope ya'll have a good week back home.
