Hello everyone! This is Elder Weaver, back with another accounting of the life and times. It has been a week that is for sure. To make a long story short, we have come to the conclusion that many of those in our teaching pool will be dropped in the next 2 weeks, and nobody seemed to be home this week! Oh well, sometimes that's just how the cookie crumbles. This was my companion's, Elder Kelly's, last week as a missionary serving our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ full time! We had a funeral service for him at his last district council, leaving the mission field is considered "dying" in missionary lingo. But it was easy to tell he was leaving, we had many dinners and he was given many gifts! It is sad to see him go, but he is onto the next chapter of his life, and his next covenant. Transfer news was this last Saturday, and luckily I will be staying! Not only that, but I got exactly what I was hoping for... I get to train again! Another son will bear my name as his mission father. I am so excited, I have a lot more experience under my belt and I feel much better equipped to train a new missionary. More to come on the lucky young man next week. My district is changing up a little bit, we are losing a solid elder, Elder Hunt, and another fantastic elder, Elder Sorenson. But the Lord needed them elsewhere, they will be missed. But the work rolls on! We are excited for new missionaries and new opportunities. There is this quote that I really like, it applies to missionaries and to everyone, "Pray as if everything depended on God, then work as if everything depended on you." Well, happy birthday to me this week, I would love to hear from everyone! Here is my joke for the week. Why does a moon rock taste better than an earth rock? Because it's a little meteor.
