Elder Austin Rushton with squash

Elder Austin Rushton testing the tonality of a squash.

I am getting a new companion. Elder Scott. He is…an intriguing young man. But I’m sure we’ll do marvelously. I’ve gotten a slew of interesting companions lately. Ones with reputations. Not necessarily bad ones, but just unique ones. And each one more unique than the last! But here’s the really weird thing… I’m fine with it. The oddballs have always been the ones I belonged with! So, in a way, all that’s really happened is that I got placed back within my niche! Glad I could find my way into it again!

I am still the district leader here. Our entire zone got filled out with nerds, too, so this transfer should be at least a little different from any of my past ones. Probably a few Nerf wars will be coming.

We had a few people tell us, again, that they wanted to be baptized. We have probably three or four people that will definitely be baptized; it’s just a matter of when with all of them. But they’ve all already made the decision to become Mormons, so once they buckle down and just do it; they’ll be there in no time at all.

I am glad to be taking over an area again. I enjoy being able to be the one in charge of making plans and things because it lets me lock in my schedule, rather than praying the guy I’m with knows what he’s doing. However, it also means my workload gets increased, so I don’t like that part of it. I like being able to just follow my companion around sometimes and not think of much besides the next lesson,   hahaha…

Not much else to talk about this week. I did have one investigator ask me to string a guitar for her, so that’ll be coming up soon. Glad I had a dad to teach me how to do that! Good day to you, friends!
