Hello everyone! This week in Richland Center has been pretty crazy!! As fast and as unexpectedly as he came, Elder Tatum left even quicker! We got a call Tuesday morning, and I totally thought he was just messing with me. But after I realized he was serious about being emergency transferred, I was a little upset, which if you know me doesn't happen a lot. But I prayed for help in accepting and feeling better about the whole thing, and my prayer was answered immediately. I felt so much better about it. God does answer our prayers, sometimes immediately, sometimes not.
Other than that, Elder Welch, my new companion, and I have been seeing miracles still happen in Richland Center! When we went to visit Brad on this Thursday, we invited him to baptism and he accepted! Then we offered to put him on baptismal date, and he accepted again! He is an amazingly prepared man who I cannot wait to help bring closer to Christ!
Other than that, we have had a lot of people that we have been able to teach, so we haven't been able to do as much finding, but Elder Welch and I are going to try to help member missionary work in the branch as well.
We got smartphones!! They're awesome!! so nice to have a phone and a camera all in one device again!! Stay tuned for Facebook once we get the other systems up and running!
Hope you all have a great week and enjoy the summer break!!Elder Paul
