Transfer Week, Sprained Ankle (not mine), and Meet the Mormons!

At Buffalo Wild Wings
Monday and Tuesday of this week consisted of Elder Miller and I going to everybody that he knew to say goodbye because he is getting transferred!  He went to the Madison 1st Ward, which is the same ward that I started my mission in.  He should love it there!!!  But basically this week has been a very long week and it seems like a month ago that I was last with Elder Miller, even though it was just a few days.

Flash forward to Wednesday, where we got picked up by the Escanaba Elders in the morning and then taken over to the church building.  We loaded all of everybody's stuff into the trailer, and then I got to take a few photos with those people who are getting trasferred.  Eventually, they had to board the bus and leave.  After that happened, Elder Harding and I turned to each other and our glorious companionship began!  We loaded all of his stuff into the Zone Leaders' van and took it to the new apartment and we let him unload everything, including us going to his old apartment on the other side of Green Bay to grab the last of his stuff.  Later that day, we went to an area and contacted people we knew, but also got to contact lots of new people!  We then walked over to where Alexis lived and had a really good lesson discussing the SPirit and how it changes lives.

The next day, we went to the YMCA to help Dale work out, but had to leave early because he didn't show up and we could have been doing better things with our time.  So, what did we do?  We weekly planned!  It was great!  Later, we were going to go and have 2 lessons, but they cancelled on us which is zero fun, but that is not the first time that happened to me.  Later in the night, we were playing Basketball and Elder Harding sprained his ankle pretty bad, which ended our fun abruptly. 
Friday was spent by getting ready for the day, and then getting picked up by the Zone Leaders for a zone event, but right before that started I got to go with one of them, Elder Eyring, to teach a lesson that we had, and it was so powerful!  The woman that we were teaching started crying super hard during the lesson and the Spirit was so strong!  Later, during our zone meeting, we got to see the new movie Meet the Mormons, and I really loved it.  I recommend it highly to anybody that is considering watching it!  :D  Our day ended with Volleyball at the church.
Saturday morning we had a little Correlation meeting with the other elders which went well, and then we went and contacted in an area the pepole that we had previously planned to meet up with.  However, after a few hours of that, it became our new mission to locate some crutches or something for Elder Harding because he was in tons of pain.  So, we found some after a few hours of looking at a 24-hour Walgreens, and then we went home and prepared for a cultural night that was coming up!  The cultural night was just a night to come and listen to talent and music of different styles and see different kinds of things, and I was asked to sing for the event, so I did that.  It went really well!!!  :D
Sunday we were able to teach a few lessons after church with Monkey (his real name is Gustavo, but he goes by Monkey for whatever reason), and I especially loved Sunday because Luis got interviewed to receive the Aaronic Priesthood and he passed the interview!  He'll be getting that next week!  :)

I love you all TONS!  Keep on keeping on, keep the faith, keep the commandments, and STAND UP for being who you are!  :D
"Fear not, I am with thee, o be not dismayed, 
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid!"
Love you!  Adios!
