Week 8

One transfer over, 1 million to go. Elder Freitas has left me and Elder Weigel has entered my presence. Elder Weigel is pretty cool, he is hard-working and a good Missionary. I'm still figuring out how his gears grind and how we can work effectively together. He's been nice so far though. He also happens to be district leader. So my MTC companion, Elder Freitas and Elder Weigel have all been District leaders...I Don't know what it means but it's really weird. They all also started their missions after they were 20, weird stuff.
The new missionaries came in last week and I got to talk to a lot of them and it feels weird not being the greeny, I was able to give them some tips though and that felt good.

Anyways, this week was pretty good. The same as usual, we taught quite a few people. One person who was really interested and really wanted us to stop by ended up being in the Sisters area. It doesn't really matter though, as long as he gets the chance to learn I don't care who does it. One of our investigators was really excited to come to church and we found her a ride and everything, she didn't answer her door though. So we're not sure what's going on with her but we're going to find out. We gave talks on Sunday...they went fairly well. We were asked to speak on fasting and we had one day to prepare, so that was fun. My talk was supposed to be 7 minutes long but went on for 15....oops. It worked out for the better in the end though. On Saturday we helped clean up the Kankakee river for an hour and then went to help a member move. The river was beautiful but there was a looooot of trash. We even found a hobos "house" with a bunch of random junk, it was pretty cool. After that I tricked Elder Weigel into eating a cow tongue taco, he liked it until he found out what it was...he says he felt sick the whole night since he knew what he ate but I know he was just being a baby. Those are all the cool things that happened this week. I'm still learning and growing as the days pass by but I know that as I do so I'll be able to help bring more of my brothers and sister into the knowledge of truth.

Love you all!
-Elder Eddenfield
