I got to go on exchanges this Friday with the zone Leaders and it was super great! I guess I should also say that Elder Nixon who I trained in Boston has become my Zone Leader here in the Springfield Zone. He and I are super close and we were so excited when we figured it out. Naturally when exchanges came around we went together. I went to his area and it was great to almost have flipped roles. We had such a great time catching up and talking about people that we used to teach but our best moments were when we were teaching together. we'd already been companions so we knew how to work together but in 6 months the two of us have both changed a lot. It was almost like being on exchanges with someone else. We were both super happy to see the changes in ourselves and overall it was really good for both of us.
Although I should also add that meanwhile in Oxford Elder Whittle and Elder Cagle were able to commit one of our new investigators to baptism! It was the first time we taught him and I guess it went well enough that he accepted an invitation to be baptized. His name is Belmiro and he committed to be baptized on January 2. So we had a good week.
This week my ponderizing verse is Omni 1: 26 And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved.
So yeah that should be good
