This week has been incredible/interesting/overwhelming/exhausting. So many things have changed and I'm just trying to adjust. Luckily, I'm in a great area with an amazing new companion. His name is Elder Choc and he's from the Yucatan. We will only have 6 weeks together because he is going home at the end of this cycle (like most of the mission it seems). I've got a lot to learn in these 6 weeks! Elder Choc is awesome though and is definitely helping me out a lot.
The impact of being a zone leader still didn't really hit me until Friday when we had Mission Leadership Council. All leadership of the mission there with the Stutz's and Nebeker's made for an incredibly inspiring and spiritual experience. I learned so much and truly felt the weight of my new responsibility in a very healthy and motivating way. Hopefully I'll be able to apply all that I learned and truly help the elders in the zone. It truly was an incredible experience and I look forward to the next one.
Well, I'm pretty exhausted right now from playing basketball with the zone and I can't think of much else to say. OH, I KNOW! My new apartment has a washing machine!!!! It's amazing. Just that we have to hand fill it with water and pay a lot of attention as it changes cycles so that we can drain the water properly and not flood our apartment. Still miraculous though.
