Keeping busy and working hard!
This week was nuts! We had changes and I'm in the same area with my new companion Elder Lowry from Utah. He is known as the happiest guy in El Salvador haha. But since he just got out of working in the office for the past year and doesn't know the area at all, I'm pretty much the trainer right now doing all the planning and stuff.But it's been great because I've been able to work a ton harder! I'm exhausted every night from working super hard! I feel great right now!!!!
This week we had a zone conference. I guess everyone thinks I'm the strongest in the zone so they had me do the push ups for the atonement activity...if you don't know what that is let's just say I had to do about 50 plus more push ups after doing 100 that morning. It may not seem that much but I don't have tons of time to work out and I'm a bit out of shape so it was a lot for me! HAHA. Then we talked to this drunk guy on the street and he said that the world is his home and that he wants the wisdom of the mayans....I love the drunk guys.
My presents got here! I'm so happy! Only moms and dads though. I'm so grateful for it! I love it. and for Christmas it looks like 24th afternoon is when we will be skyping. I don't have tons of time but I love you all!
Love Elder Markham
