Before I left Brenham, my companion and I were able to get Kaylyn baptized, finally! I was even able to confirm her as a member, give her the Holy Ghost, and bless her, which was amazing.
Now I have a new companion, and I’m serving in enemy territory: Temptation Station. (College Station) I was really hoping to never serve here, but at least I’m in a family ward instead of being on campus!
My new companion is fresh out of the MTC. I’m training again! His name is Elder Pinster. He grew up about 45 minutes South of me, in Portland OR. But since he’s in a different state, stake, and 5 years younger than me, we never met. He’s great! President knew we would have a pretty challenging area, so he gave me the most solid trainee, I’m convinced.
In addition to my original responsibilities, and aside from the challenges of all the pretty girls and partying, we’re whitewashing two wards together (we’re replacing both missionaries in those wards)
However, we inherited a baptismal date and set another one last week. We plan on setting four more this week or next. It should be a successful and busy transfer!
Hope y’all are having a great week back home. Thank you for your prayers and support. Here are some pics and a video of our war on the roaches in Brenham.
