This week was really good. A lot happened and it was fun. First we had P-day. It was mostly spent with Elder Howell packing for transfers. So, I kind of just sat around doing nothing. It was alright. Then on Tuesday he had to do more packing. He had to pack his bike into a box so he could put it on the greyhound. That took him a while. Later in the day we taught a lesson to both Emily and Reagan. It was good. After that Elder Wilde and Elder Howell left for Garden City. They didn’t want to leave super early in the morning so they just stayed with missionaries up there for the night. So Elder Rugama and I were on exchanges.
Wednesday wasn’t a very eventful day. We were on foot the whole day since we didn’t have the car. So we couldn’t get around too much. We had lunch at a Spanish members house. Only Elder Rugama could do any talking, but I sure did enjoy the food. We found out later in the day that our new companions weren’t going to make it to Guymon that day like they were supposed to. There were some transfer difficulties. So, we were on extended exchanges.
On Thursday our companions did make it to Guymon. My new companion is Elder Lott. Served around him in Topeka for a transfer before I came here. So I already knew him a little. He’s a pretty funny guy. This is his fourth transfer. He is from Idaho just like Elder Howell. And that’s about all I have to share about him for right now. After he got here we did a bunch of planning and got him up to speed on the area. We were only able to see a few people the rest of the day.
Friday started with zone training in Liberal. It was a good meeting. We talked all about building faith. Those meetings are long, but they are good and I always learn something. After the meeting we drove back to Guymon. We taught Emily again and finished teaching her everything she needs to know before she gets baptized. She is super excited for her baptism. It’s pretty cool. She has read the Book of Mormon all the way into 3 Nephi already. After we taught Emily we started walking around visiting people. Elder Lott’s bike is still in Topeka so we have walk when we don’t have the car. We mostly spent the day introducing Elder Lott to members and stuff like that.
Saturday we did a lot of walking. That was about all we did. I’m pretty sure there was some kind of event going on because almost nobody was home. We were able to teach a few people though. It was actually a pretty uneventful day. We got some good exercise though!
Sunday was awesome as usual. We had church and that was great. Emily was there and during one of the classes interviewed with President Duffy. I think I forgot to mention before that she texted us about a week ago and asked if she could interview with the branch president because she was applying to BYU. Yeah it was pretty crazy. Anyway, that’s what she interviewed for. After church we had lunch. Sister Duffy was out of town so we didn’t eat with them. We had to deal with our own cooking at the apartment. It wasn’t even close to as good as Sister Duffy’s food. We then proceeded to walk around. We had a few good visits with people. We also worked on trying to meet some of the people on the branch roster that we don’t know. It’s a slow process, but very worth it.
Well, that was my week. It was pretty good overall.
