Week 38

Well first week with the new comp and changes in the house. Elder Abel didn't get here until Wednesday night at like 1230, so Monday night I walked with Hutch and Tuesday I walked with Hutch and his companion, Elder Richardson. I dig Richardson. He is someone I definitely would have hung out with outside the mission.

So we all know the saying if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. Ya well I am not going to comment really on my new companion then. All I will say is I am learning a lot. Basically the exact type of missionary, person, and leader that I never want to be haha. The good news is we are working hard and should get some families finally baptized this transfer!

This week was kind of boring, sorry. Like I said I didnt start walking in my area until Thursday with Abel. Because we just divided the area we only have half the families that we were teaching, we are looking super hard for new families. That means lots and lots of contacting. Just in 3 days Abel and I racked up 53 contacts. It took Hutch and I (really just me) 2 weeks to get 57 haha. So thats one nice thing about having a new comp that works hard. We will see if he slows down when reality sets in that he is going home in 5 weeks.

I'm moving on in the NT. I made it to Romans this week. I never realized how much of the NT is from Paul or influenced by him. His letter to the Romans is pretty nice. I really like chapter 2 or 3, I forget which one haha, where he essentially calls everyone out for being hypocrites. His whole point is that we need to walk the walk, and do what we would expect others to do if not more. I like it, just got to apply it now.

I was thinking this week, cause of my new comp and all, about the mission so far. This is what I decided. I must have been a really impatient, self righteous, pridefull, and arrogant person before the mission, because my entire mission (other than Elder Ipsen) has been full of comps and housemates that have tested me in one of these areas. It really is just comical at this point. Its like how far and in how many different ways can we tug at Elder Hruby. Have I told you how not fun it is learning these things from experience. They'll pay off one day though right haha.

Well kind of a lame email so sorry about that. Hopefully we will get some good work done this week and Ill have something to write about next week. Glad Spring Break went well. Navy sounds pretty sick. All the Midshipmen I met last year always talked it up, looks like rightly so. Love you guys!

Much Love,
Elder Hruby
