Well, this week has been fun. Starting off, we went around with Elder Socop so that he could say goodbye to everyone. Then Tuesday night we stayed the night at another companionship's house so that I could go with another trainer to the trainers meeting. And we had to be there in San Salvador at 8 in the morning. So we woke up at 4 in the morning and grabbed the first bus out of town. Literally, the first bus that left in the morning. And then we got lost in San Salvador. We took the wrong bus and ended up on the wrong side of town. Thankfully, we saw another bus that went back to the right side of town, and got on that bus. We got to the trainers meeting a bit late, but at least we got there!
At the trainers meeting we met our new companions and received a bit of training from the assistants and from President. My companion is called Elder McDaniel. He's from Hurricane, Utah. He's a really great guy, and we're getting along well.
We've been working a lot the last few days. So far we've been able to put a baptism date with a family of four. We're planning on getting them married and baptized on September 17th.
Well, time's up for today. Have an awesome week!
