An Elder of Two Cities
The transfer call has come and gone! Elder Ushio has been assigned to serve in Vancouver, and Elder Walker has been called to serve in the promised land of Prince George! I will be here in Burnaby for this final transfer, and my new companion will be Elder Frye! Elder Frye is from Las Vegas, and we served for two transfers in the same ward when I was in Surrey. This certainly going to be a busy and exciting transfer.
This past week, we were blessed with the opportunity to drive to Richmond and meet with President Burt and other phenomenal missionaries for our Council meeting, where we learned a lot about ministering, leadership, and of course missionary work. We then were able to relay that same Spirit and information to the Vancouver and Burnaby zones in a combined zone meeting. We also had a great meeting with the Vancouver Stake President as we align our efforts with his.
We've had some very powerful lessons this week. One that stands out was with a man named Shawn; he is originally from Iran, and he is extremely eager to learn more about the church! He has agreed to baptism in August, and we will be meeting with the rest of his family this week.
