We had Zone Leader Council that morning in Eugene the drive to Eugene is about 2 hr and 30 min. They said it would be done at 3 but it went over time and the baptism started at 6. So we ended up we got there right as the first talk started. It was kinda Crazy but the service was very nice and Rebecca was very happy. She has such a strong testimony, she has already gotten a bit of flack from her friends for going the church, but she does not care. Being a Member has and will continue to bless her life so much.
companion is Elder Burg, I know him a little bit, he seems like a good kid and i am exited to be his companion. I have had some really exiting ideas lately for ward mission plans and correlation between members and missionaries. I will talk about it more on a different email, i dont have time for it today. What prompted these ideas is that President Tricinie asked Elder Reed and i to ponder and pray about ideas that can help the stake out and help it so the missionaries can have more things to do when we get all the new ones. We are meeting with President Tricinie this Sunday and we are going to talk about it. I am exited.
In mission slang you call your trainer your dad and the person you train your son, and it sticks with you for the rest of your mission. I say this because this week I am a very proud father. Elder Jorgensen just got assigned to be a Zone Leader, and Elder Kwok is training this transfer! They are both very good sons, and i am glad i did not mess them up too much. I really hope i get to be in one of their zones again. Other good news that i keep forgetting to put in my email is that Justin Pattersen was baptized two days after thanksgiving! He is such an amazing guy and he is going to be a great member, and now i need to convince him to go on a mission Ha Ha. I got t0T call him the day of his baptism, It was great!
I Love you all
