New area, new comp, new mindset

New area, new comp, new mindset

Hey everybody,

It has been a super long week. It has been very stressful and probably one of the first weeks in a long time honestly. I think it was the first week in super long time that I was actually waiting a little bit for p-day to come around again.

We got to our house, cleaned that whole thing up, and got to work on the first day. My companion is also ZL and we are opening a new area right now… What a stressful transfer. We started with no lunches or dinners, no investigators, and without even knowing where the active members lived. At the end of the first week, we now know about half of the members, have a few lunches and dinners, have someone who lends us their washing machine, and have a good handful of investigators. We have yet to go contacting, and it has been something good for us, because it is going to help us stay motivated and only work with the members, which is the only way to work. (I convinced my companion)

I feel like I am going to learn a lot from new guy here. He is pretty cool, and one of the most truly christian people I have ever met. I am going to learn everything I can from him so that I don’t stay like old me. I always try to take the best from my companions and apply it to my own life in the way that I am. this is one of the most peaceable companions that I have ever had, and I hope to find a true zen with him *image of man floating, while meditating*

I hope that this week goes well for everyone, I am going to do my very best to have a good week out here. I love you all!!!
