Week 9: Splits and the Zoo...Amazing!


This week was a lot of fun. I was on splits for almost the entire week! For those of you who don't know what splits are, it's when you temporarily go with a new companion for about 24 hours. So this week I went on splits with one of the Assistants to the President. His name is Elder Rockwood. And just so you know, he's about 2 meters tall [about 6'5"]. I don't feel like doing the math, so you're all on your own for that one. He is such an amazing missionary. I learned so much from him. Just on the trains back to our area, we were able to get 4 potential investigators. It was amazing! After that we taught a lesson to an 18 year old boy, and it went really well, and then we went and taught English class, then went home.  It was amazing. I learned so much from him. Nothing really specific, but just how to be a better servant for the Lord.

After that, I got back with Elder Livingston, then the day after that I was on splits with the Zone Leaders! I was with an Elder named Elder Etchu. He is Japanese, and he is so amazing. He has a smile that could cheer anybody up. It was very good practice for my Japanese, too. I learned so much from him! He taught me what it really means to love people. It's not like I didn't love them before, but he showed me how to really love them. It was amazing.

After splits it was Fast Sunday, and the ward had a ward Fast/Testimony meeting/prayer for missionary work. Let me tell you something. I have never seen so many miracles in one day. We were both so ready to work, and we had the chance to talk to so many people that day, and we also set up a lesson with someone we found on the street. It was [wait for it...] amazing.

So today, we went to the zoo! That's why I'm emailing so late. Sorry! But it was a lot of fun! We took our Canadian with us, and he loved it! We didn't get to see all of the zoo because it closed really early, but I still had a great time. I'll be sure to include lots of pictures. I hope you all had a great week! I love you all!
