Year 2 begins


So I hit the year mark and I'm super pumped for year 2.  That day we had a great zone conference about 2 hours away from my sector with a couple other zones and President Bluth.  It was really great and they made some fairly significant changes for 2015.  As missionaries we report several numbers to our leaders to help them know what we are doing well and what we need help on.  We also do it help ourselves focus on the most important aspects of the work.  Before we would report more than 10 "Key Indicators" weekly and 5 daily.  Now we report 5 weekly and 2 daily.  Now we only report the number of people baptized and confirmed, the number of investigators who have a baptismal date and those who came to church, and the total attendance at sacrament meeting.  Its a different focus that the Area is doing, but I'm looking forward to using it.

Also big news.  We had a sweet mission activity this week! I got to see everyone in the mission, including all my past comps and lots of elders and sisters from my past zones and districts.  It was basically a big EFY.  We went to a summer campish place and played kickball, frisbee, volleyball, dodge-ball and other games, zones against zones. We had a big barbecue and we got to watch the movie Meet the Mormons! It was way cool.  They have it in Spanish now.  I also saw Hermana Treanor from my stake in McKinney, who is now serving in this mission which was way cool.  We traveled a ton that day and got home super late, but it was a great experience overall.

Other than this week this week has been pretty normal.  The gypsies tried to rob us, heard some crazy gospel dreams from people we contacted, and we went fishing (last Pday).

Trust is Christ, He will never fail us!

Thanks and have a great week!
