New Companion from Chicago (week 58)

Well transfers came and now I am with Elder Bergman. He is straight out of the MTC and ready to get to work. He is from Chicago (Not actually Chicago, in-fact a a city called St. Charles which is close to Chicago, kinda like how I say I'm from Dallas). He doesn't know a bunch of Spanish yet ,but he is super ready to learn some more. He is just a stellar missionary and he is going to be a whole lot better once he has some more confidence in his Spanish skills. Elder Flamm's new companion is Elder Hanna. He was in Moses lake before coming here to Sunnyside. 

We were able to find an opportunity to help out our investigator ,that is getting baptized this week, by helping him install a new air conditioner. I had decided to give him a call to set up an appointment for the next day and while on the phone with him he told us how he was trying to call someone to help him install the new air conditioner so we offered to help him with it. It was a great service opportunity and it allowed us to talk more to his wife who in the past has been pretty cut off from us. She has been very grateful for the service we offered and now they both feel a little more confident is asking us to help out when they need things. Roberto is progressing a ton and is ready for his baptism this upcoming Saturday. He is excited to be following the example of Christ and to be leaving behind things like alcohol. He is hoping that soon his wife will gain that same desire and attend church with him and eventually decide to get baptized like he is. 

We have a super week ahead of us with Roberto's baptism and a bunch of great meetings. I get to go to trainer/trainee again tomorrow and then we have district council and district language study Wednesday and Thursday. All our time fills up fast and it fills up even faster having four hours of studies. It is going to be a great week. 

I hope everyone is having a great time and enjoying school getting back into session. Sorry I don't have a ton to write about this week. 

With Love,
Elder Boren
