This week's companionship adjective was “dripping.” Dripping with confidence, sarcasm, and sweat.
Honestly, it was a good week. Starting up a new companionship means you gotta start from ground 0. We worked hard finding and saw some small successes. I expect it will multiply in the next couple weeks. But we found a cool new investigator named GV. The guy is a Greek stud who is very knowledgeable about the Bible.
Sadly, we also had quite of few frustrating experiences - when we taught people that understood the truth, but then they didn't want to act. That was kind of sad, but on the other hand, when we are out teaching and finding, we always meet some interesting people.
That led us to meet HL. HL is quite interesting. When we met her, she told us it was the birthday of Texas. She further told us that she was born in the back of a car, in Washington, D.C., but it was a political thing. She also likes John the Baptist, conspiracy theories, and has "Welcome to London" as her catchphrase. We saw this same lady 3 times over the next 2 days.
Anyways, I guess meeting unique people is kind of common for me now. Training is great. I love Anziano McConkie. The whole house here in Pescara is full of great guys, and I'm sure they will all be leaders in the missions and church someday. It's amazing to see how awesome and prepared the missionaries are who are coming out to the field.
Also, this week was hot. We dripped sweat a lot while teaching the gospel to men walking around Pescara in Speedos. Oh, the joys of missionary work!
