Well this week has been awesome. I love Madison so much. We’ve been meeting a lot of members and knocking doors this week. Our branch president is the brother of my first ward mission leader. So while we were over for thanksgiving dinner, his brother came and it helped build some trust. It was great to see them again.
We helped set up and throw a farewell party for our branch mission leader. He’s heading out to Alabama in a week, so we will be getting a new mission leader here soon.
We’ve been able to meet with Javier, the father of our branch mission leader. It’s hard to communicate with him because he’s not super fluent in Spanish, but he said he was ready to come to church starting next week. So hopefully we can set him on date here tomorrow.
Most of the rest of the time was spent heading to different areas and knocking for awhile. We were able to find a few new good prospects, now just trying to make the second contact. But there is a lot of great areas to work with, a lot more than bowling green.
Anyways, I’m really excited to work with Elder Murdock this transfer and help him continue growing in his Spanish skills. He’s a great missionary! He’s from salt lake, and went to Olympus high. He’s been out for about 4 months now and he’s super funny.
