getting around Quincy (week 82)

 I got a picture with Elder Palacios at the transfersite in Quincy. He is Ender Endertons new companion.

                                                 Elder Bown is my translating partner
So here in Quincy I get to translate sacrament meeting every week. This is our station. It was fun

My new Companion Elder Wright

Now I'm down in Quincy. It has been a great change and even a little bit of a change in weather. When I got down here on Wednesday most of the the snow and ice was starting to be pretty much done. But to my disappointment we got a lot of snow dumped on us. It snowed Thursday night, a good chunk of Friday, a little Saturday and all of Sunday. Now there is somewhere from 4 to 12 inches. (I think 12 might be exaggerated) So We cover the west half of Quincy and our area includes just about all the boonies around the town. I hope to find some work out there since it reminds me so much of Royal. We share a car with the Elders covering the East half, Elder Bown and Elder Davis. We usually get the car since we cover a lot more ground. We also cover a little town called George. (George Washington!) My Companion is Elder Wright from North Carolina. He has been out just two transfers. (Three if you include the MTC) He is great fun and we are going to have a blast together. He loves learning languages and hopes to be a translator some day. 

I haven't gotten to meet everyone yet but, that is still a work in progress. It might end up being a little difficult since Elder Bown and I sit in a translating room during sacrament meeting on Sundays. That is always fun and we get to practice our Spanish. Since this past Sunday was fast and testimony Sunday the two of us just switched off every other testimony. It was fun and I enjoy getting to use my Spanish. I also got to translate all of Elders Quorum. That was a little more crazy since it was just me translating the whole hour or so. We get to translate so much since there isn't a Spanish unit here and the Spanish speaking members just got to all the meetings with the English speaking members.

 So far I'm loving Quincy. I love the member and I look forward to getting to know them a little better. I know that I am going to have a great time serving in this area. It may not be a very big city but, I sure there is plenty to do especially if we were able to find so much success in Royal Camp. What is cool to have found out is that Royal isn't actually all that far. We had dinner with a member that lives about ten minutes from the church in Royal. Turns out that some of the members aren't really sure where the ward boundaries are. 

One family that we are teaching here is the Williamson Family. They are great and have a desire to be baptized. We just taught them the importance of tithing and fasting and they understood it rather well. This upcoming week we are planning on talking about temples and eternal marriage. Soon we will be finding out a good time for a baptismal goal with them. We are hoping for late February or Early March. I'm thankful I get to work with such a great family. I look forward to the many more people we are going to be able to meet and teach and all the blessings we will be able to see.

I hope everyone has a great upcoming week. 

Con Amor,
Elder Boren
