|I am going to miss my companion, Elder Allred!|
My first week as a senior companion was a looooonnngg one for sure. Ha-ha. My new companion is Elder B** He is a really cool kid from Rexburg, Idaho. He served about 4 months in Peru at the start of his mission, but then got sick and was sent here to finish his mission. He is a really quiet guy and doesn’t say a whole lot, but he is a good obedient hard worker. This week was a crazy one having to drop off the Elders to the airport, and then realizing that I was now in charge of the area. This means all the planning, teaching, contacting etc. The area isn’t thriving like I would hope it would and we don’t have a whole lot of people to teach. We are still in this "finding mode" for like the past month.

Another positive note, we did find one new investigator named M** while we were out knocking by some formers and potentials. She was very receptive and was willing to have us come in and teach her right then and there. We started to teach a lesson, but the lesson soon turned into the world’s biggest Novela of all time. It is very difficult to teach in another language when they start talking about their own personal affairs and are giving detailed explanations of their lives etc. We did get another appointment set up so hopefully that one is a little more organized.
