Two Week update- New Area! and Organizing

Monday, May 9- New Area!

This week was super cool!  It was fun/sad saying goodbye to everyone in Stead, but I know they are in good hands!  We had a fun day after transfers with Elder Bido.  It was a little different, because Elder Pusey and I didn't have much time to talk and get to know each other.  We have had that time now and we are working great together! I think we still need to work on how much each of us is saying during lessons, but we are working on it!  Being in a new area again, after my first transfer, has been kind of uncomfortable.  I don't know the area or the people yet and that is kind of hard to deal with. Something President Johnson said on Saturday about the split really struck me. He said that the Lord isn't so concerned with our comfort but our growth and the growth of others.  It has been great to reflect on that- that although I am not comfortable here, I will grow and I will work hard to learn the area and get to know the area!  I am so excited for what the next weeks have in store!

Monday, May 16- Organizing

We had a good week this week.  We have been working with one of the recent converts here a lot this week, to help her get in a habit of reading and that has been great.  We have had a lot of opportunities to give service to different less active members and others and it has been a great experience to participate in that!  
We had a fireside on Sunday where recent converts go and give their testimonies. We had no one going on Sunday, but we decided to ask everyone last minute and they said yes!  We got to the fireside and only those who we had asked were still able to speak.  Huge miracle!
One thing that stuck out about this week was the length of weekly planning.  We have been working hard to organize our records and the area so we can be more effective.  As we have been working at it, I have been able to know the area more and know who people are and that has been so great!  Elder Pusey and I are working on teaching in unity, to not let either of us dominate the teaching, but to work together!  We are doing great!
