Another week has flown
by. So we went to transfers on Wednesday. I
think I was like the second to last person to get a companion so the wait was
agonizing. When it finally came I heard, "Elder Cousin's new
companion, fresh from MTC is Elder Franzuela." So I'm training
again. He is from Samar.
This elder is from a part of the country
where the modern world doesn't exist. Tagalog is his second language so
its alright but still kind of mixed. In the past week I have grown to love
this Elder. He is simple and humble and willing to follow without question.
The simplest things I took for granted before, I have now learned to
appreciate. I I taught him how to use the gas stove last night. The
first lesson he said he just wanted to share his testimony and have me teach
but I have learned that he is good at teaching. I am still district leader but I've
gotten used to it so it isn't too much of a stress.
Last thing. I've
learned to love the Liahona (magazine) We get a copy as a companionship
each month. I typically blow through it in a couple days but one article
struck me this month. It is for youth but it applies to us all.
Here is the link. http://www.lds.org/liahona/2013/09/youth/learning-from-living-prophets?lang=eng. Read it and see if you could be doing
more to support and follow these latter day servants of God.
