6 August 2012
after just 6 weeks in this area they are moving me! just as i was starting to like this place :/
heres what happened. last transfer there were 6 zones. this transfer 3 of the zones split making 9 total! thats crazy, and doesnt ever happen. also crazy is asking me to be a zone leader in one of these new zones. me and elder weaver and opening the new highland hills zone. its just east of where i am at now. we'll live right across the street from the mission office. so here i was all worried about trying to be a district leader over a bunch of newbs, and now i have to be a ZONE leader to a bunch of newbs (note to people who dont know what im talking about: districts have 4-6 missionaries in them and one "district leader", zones have 2-3 districts in them and 2 "zone leaders").
i dont know how i feel about this. elder parker and i were just starting to have fun! elder weaver is fun too! i know him a little bit and he seems like a cool guy. and i dont have to worry about them taking my car away! (actually we are getting a mini van!)
it is definitely a bummer that its happening 2 days before my b-day. i had to cancel a couple parties :( oh well. we'll find something fun to do for my birthday. and im sure there is a plan in all of it.
we've go a lot of stuff to do this week! like moving in to a new apartment, going to meetings, and meeting two new wards full of people! we are covering the Gold Crest family ward and the Tropical Breeze Samoan ward. im not very excited about the Samoan ward. i know elders that have put on 35lbs in the samoan ward! luckily our apartment complex has a gym. elder weaver and i have a goal to not put on any weight, even if it means the samoans dont like us lol.
aaaanyways, i'll have lots more to tell you next week, once we get settled in to our new place. its kinda exciting! there a good chance i'll be in this area until after christmas, so hopefully its turns out fruitful!
i hope everyone is enjoying the last bits of summer! be good!
