It's such a great time to be a Washington Kennewick Missionary! ....It's just great to be any missionary!
Everything this week has been really cool! The start of the week was a lot of saying goodbyes to everyone in Yakima, and the other half was getting going here in Pasco!
So ya...saying goodbye is still probably one of the worst things that you could do on your mission, but it was all good! Love all of the amazing people up there! The highlight of all of that was the time that we spent with the Pimentel family. We had a really fun Family Home Evening and took a lot of pictures! BAA!!! I'll miss them all, but I'm looking forward to destroy them all in an epic game of Manzanas con manzanas!!
Spent a good time packing things up...found a lot of things that I'll be sending home. That's the cool things about having to live in a suitcase, teaches a lot about letting go of things that you really cant be carrying around.
The transfer move was really smooth. Got to meet my new companion, Elder Myers. It's going to be a really fun transfer!! We'll be working in a walking area, which is a little different. But it means that I can eat whatever I want and it wont do anything with all the walking I'll be doing...jaja
No, but It's been great so far!! I love what we're able to do with our time and abilities while walking around.
We've been able to see so many miracles happen each and every day! It's been really amazing! There's been at least one huge thing that happens each day, and it's really driven me to make sure that we are doing the right things so that we can continue to have something amazing every day! There's lots of work and potential here in Pasco, so I'm very excited for the opportunity that I have to be here!! I'll make sure I keep all of you involved with everyone!!
On one note, one of the days this week, we met two really awesome guys, Alex and Jaime. Especially Jaime has had a huge desire to quit drinking, and our knock was an answer to a recent prayer he had. It's really amazing to see that the hand of the Lord can be seen on both sides. Please pray that he may start the process of the Gospel to help him quit, as well the steps that we give him that can help. Really amazing people here in Pasco!!
I really love the new year! Such an amazing opportunity to take the time to set the goals and discover the things that we can do differently this year! Let us look at it with the perspective of Christ in mind. He has given us one of the greatest gifts, and we've had that opportunity to remember that this last Christmas. Let us now return a gift for both the Father and the Son. You know what those gifts can be as you search for them through prayer and scripture study! Discover the gift you want to give, embrace that gift, and share it!
I love you all and hope the best for all this start of the year! May we all go forth and be strong on our desire to change and come closer to Christ through the Gospel of Christ! Love you and wish you the best!
