Hey der. I am senior companion this week, it isn't going to seem too different because i already have been carrying the phone around and taking lead a lot. So i think it will be all good. Last week i went on splits with an Elder Palmberg Who i came out here from the mtc with. So we were to greenies going about the business. We did well. It seems weird that my comp will be going home in a couple of weeks, and then i will get a new one and i will be the one that has to know how to get around the area and know all the people. yikes.
I need to wrap it up though my companion wants to leave. I will leave you with a spiritual message.
Me and my companion were walking to a less actives last week and while we were walking we passed this guy who had a couple of sacks. he was obviously homeless and he was picking up cans to go and sell. Well the first time we walked, we walked straight past him and didn't think to much about it. We walked probably another good 1/4 of a mile before my companion stopped and said. You know what, this is gonna bother me. Lets go back and talk to that guy. So we went back and started talking to him. He was really open to us and he told us that he had been out of his job for about 3 years now. We talked to him for about ten minutes and he said that he would take some thought to it but nothing much came about it. but after i just felt pretty bad because I think the first time that we didn't talk to him was because he looked a little iffy and didn't think that he would care to here us. It made me realize that we shouldn't be judging a person by how they look. Even if they are there smoking a cigarette, they still could be prepared to here our message. It made the think that we need to talk to everyone because we dont know who the elect are until we actually talk to them.
Anyways thats all i got. k love you. have a great week.
