A transfer into a different area of Phoenix provided new opportunities. Now in a car (that doesn't have chains...haha), Elder Blanky and his companion, Elder Carter, find new investigators to teach, have another baptism and find that study chairs are not as sturdy as they look. Ok... it's Elder Blanky. Do we need to say more???
Here is Elder Blanky at the Mama C's house for dinner... "She has like 7 dogs, some birds, a few chickens and a turkey at her house! She is amazing! I'm glad that there are people out here that love me so much." Mama C. is the missionary's "ward mom" and has hammocks in her house... something that Elder Blanky has never tried before. Yeah, looks like he is getting how to stay in it, huh?
Ha... The turkey.
P-Day (the missionaries prep day) provides some time after grocery shopping and laundry, to put in a hike over the city.
Then, it's time to head back to the hacienda.
An excerpt from Elder Blanky:
"We are just continuing to work hard! Elder Carter and I are seeing some very good improvements all across the board! So I am really happy for that. Our area covers a couple of hospitals and there are some nearby, so whenever someone contacts the mission home and asks for a blessing, our president always sends us to go since we have a car. I hate to see people in pain and agony, but I know our presence puts them to ease and they really benefit from us being there to give them a blessing."
"Yesterday a man named J. just showed up to church and no one knew who he was. So, we introduced ourselves and it turns out that he has been investigating for awhile and he wants to be baptized! I am always in awe of how prepared people are! So, we will be teaching him for the first time tonight and we'll go from there!"
The first baptism after arriving in the new area of Phoenix...
A short stay for Elder Blanky... another transfer awaits.
"The Rez" is up next. Stay tuned.
