Wow, What a Wowzer Week - Deja Vu
November 16, 2015
Good-bye to a friend in Ajusco!
Wow, what a wowzer
it has been. Changes were the weirdest thing everrrr. Let me explain:
With both my comp and I leaving we had to put all our
luggage in our branch president’s car so he could drive us down the mountain
and then we took the bus to where our mission offices are. Weird, but it was
ok. Just one more scary ride down the mountain ... and like I’ve said ... these
rides are WAY better that Six Flags or Disneyland. So we get to the offices/chapel and get
seated and all and just get ready for the opening song and prayer before Prez
talks to us and then we all find out where we are going. Then as all that happens he reads out, "And
in Jardines, Iztapalapa, we have Elder McClure as District leader and his comp
will be Elder Miller." It was like
a WHA HUHQUE?!¡?! I’m going back to
where I started my mission and already spent 6 months of my mission?????? But yep, that’s how it is folks. I thought it was a joke, but it ain’t.
So I’m STILL with my comp Elder Miller, I’m BACK in my old
area, I’m REOPENING an area (which means we came to nothing) and there are
SISTERS in my District!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s been quite the stressor. So
we took 2 trips in a taxi getting all our stuff to Iztapalapa and our house was
ransacked/trashed so we had fun cleaning all that up. Iztapalapa is the most dangerous city in our
mission, and they put sisters in the test run to see if they’ll be OK there
because we are receiving tons of sisters and they don’t have anywhere to put
them. So they are trying it out here in
my ward and I’m supposed to look out for them and show them around cuz
supposedly I know the area--super crazy.
It’s been a real stressor, but it’s been fun to see all my
old converts! Everyone at church saw me and just started laughing ... cuz I’m
back. So really I don’t know. It’s just been super, super crazy and I’m not
sure how it’s all going to work out.
That's been my week -- crazyyyyyy.
The good news is that I was able to contact 2 old investigadors of mine and they both went to church yesterday! Soooo, pretty awesome! I love investigadors
Also, yesterday at church was the Primary program for our
ward! Oh man, just have to throw in here
how it made me miss my Primary class soooo much! It was just about a year ago when I was
able to be up on the stand with my class singing them great songs and just
feeling like a kid again! Primary programs
are the BEST!
But yeah, that’s about it.
Jardines again baby. Here I go!
