(Yes Idaho friends..Elder Anderson is the kid from Madison High School that was on the winning State basketball team in 2016 so Connor knows him well)
This week was fun! Being in a tripanionship is wayyy better than i thought it would be! We have had so much fun! Literally its always a party! Elder Anderson reminds me exactly of Kyle Jones! Same jokes, same body language, talks the same, and is just a funny goof ball! We have become homies! Only the first week together and we want to start setting up plans to see each other in Rexburg and Boise! Looking for better places to hangout around Idaho!
Having the car has made going out and proselyting so much easier. We get away from the heat and tired legs from biking all over. It has been kinda hard adjusting to teaching with three missionaries. Sometimes we contact people and they feel like we are swarming them. We have a District Goal for this whole transfer. By the end of the transfer (July 15) we are trying to invite 300 people to be baptized! At the end of week one we have reached 32! We are behind the mark but we can catch back up! There was a Ward Swim Party this week that we went to. Obviously we didn't swim but it was good to have the ward meet the new missionary around here. Everyone greeted him well. He was trained in the Carmichael ward which shares the same San Juan Building with us so he knows a lot of people when we go to the church building. 6 months in one area is a long time but the Lord needs me here so I'm trying my best to stay determined to find new people.
I feel like i have talked to everyone in this area! Its kinda ridiculous but i like knowing everything about everyone. I know just about every house that would answer and wouldn't, which house we have stopped at before and had good conversations or bad. Its crazy i feel like Google maps out here.
Highlights of the week!
We were having lunch one day in the apartment and Elder Kahle was cooking corn dog. I stole the corn dog from out of the microwave and threw it to Elder Anderson. It was a game of keep away! Elder Anderson tried to throw it back but it hit the roof and fell on the ground! It made the best thud noise and left a moist spot on the ground. I haven't laughed that hard in forever!
Elder Anderson and I had a great late night discussion about our lives Wednesday night. Elder Kahle fell asleep around 10:45 but Elder Anderson and i stayed up talking until about 1:30am! It was sick! We super bonded and our relationship has been amazing since. We definitely have each others backs and that's what matters!
