So currently I am in Monroe, LA for Pday, specialized training tomorrow and then I'll be in El Dorado for exchanges on Wednesday!I don't know what made me start with that but I'm too lazy to change it so there it is haha. This last week I have realized a few things. One of which is that even on Elder Hainsworth and my slowest weeks we still keep up to par with what we are supposed to be doing. He really is a great trainer even if he didn't have to teach me doctrine or other such book information but he is helping me become a better missionary! He has often said that he doesn't feel like he is training someone but that's probably just because I learn by watching and can immediately repeat. His last companion was an elder who didn't say much of anything anywhere so Elder Hainsworth became kinda a robotic missionary but the past couple weeks I've seen us grow together.
Also something that I've heard most of my life but never really registered is that faith is the beginning of everything. I've seen discussions go from historically interested to spiritually interested just because they tried to have a little faith. It's really increased my testimony that the holy spirit is really here and influencing our everyday lives. Even when it's hard to see among such hardhearted people.
