November 4, 2013

I think I told you that Angela was scheduled to be baptized on the 10th but that isn't going to happen :( Unfortunately, she isn't quite ready and we haven't taught her everything. We still need to teach her about the Law of Chastity and I am praying that she will understand it. We didn't actually get to meet with her this week but we are meeting with her on Wednesday. Because of Halloween, we only had about three hours of proselyting time on Thursday and we were out of townuntil Wednesday night. Did I mention that I have a new companion? Elder Farrer(pronounced Farr) is super awesome. He is from Brigham City Utah and is 22 years old. Basically, he is going to be an amazing missionary as long as I don't mess him up too much ;)
He is a brand new missionary and I met him on Wednesday. Usually our transfer meeting(where we find out where we are going and who our companion is going to be) is on Tuesday. Because I am training a new missionary I didn't get to meet him until Wednesday. President Anderson has to interview each of them and decide whose companion they will be. On Tuesday, since Elder Meline got transfered, I got to stay with another missionary that is training. That missionary just happens to be in my first area, FRANKFORD!!! I got to go back and visit some members and other people. It was really strange being back but I loved it. Philly is pretty much the best place ever.
This last week, we had a bunch of crazy announcements that you probably wouldn't care about. However, one of them is pretty funny because it upset almost everyone. Everyone in the mission is supposed to send home their iPods. People were pretty annoyed for awhile until President explained the reason. Also, Elders and Sisters can't ride in the same car anymore. The age change definitely changed a lot of things. A lot of Sisters coming out are the same age as the new Elders and are pretty attractive. Not surprisingly, it has been an issue for some missionaries.
Melalueca is good for a bunch of stuff. I don't know everything. You would need to borrow the book from someone. I know that one of the things it helps with is acne. Don't have Catherine stop using proactive. Try doing both and it should help. It hasn't been totally cleared up for me but it seems like my skin is actually healthier.
