Well, first off, I have to say that this new area has so far been very good for me.
My new companion, Elder King, is from Tennessee, like my last companion, but he is a much more normal person. Anyway, he’s also very much into being clean (especially keeping the apartment clean) and whatnot, so that’s really good. He’s also been out for about the same amount of time as me, so that’s good, too.
The area itself is a lot slower here than the last one. We cover two branches, Tierra Rica and Ensenada Park. They’re both decent-sized, and there were about 45 people there for each of the Sacrament meetings. Oh, yeah…. Covering two branches also means now that we’re in a lot of meetings on Sundays. For example, yesterday we were in meetings for a total of 8 1/2 hours. So, yeah… That was kind of tiring.
Oh, and as far as being tired all the time, the doctor told me some pretty interesting stuff, and we’re going to be trying a few things in the coming weeks to see if we can’t make it work out. Part of that was also being transferred.
Anyway, the branches here are pretty neat, and the members are great people. We cover a much larger area than my last area, and the average income here is quite a bit higher. I’m actually in houses most of the time. As a matter of fact, we only have a few investigators that live in apartments.
But yeah, it’s good stuff.
That’s about all that I can think of for right now, so just suffice it to say that I’m pretty excited to have a normal companion and a clean apartment. Plus, we have a washer and dryer in the apartment now. That’s a huge bonus.
