So what are your duties as a District leader?
- I just have to plan for and teach district mtg. every week on weds. and at the end of every week I have to record our districts numbers and then report them to the zone leaders.
How is your bike doing?
- Pretty good. A few weeks ago it got a flat tire, so I had brought it inside, but I think it got knocked over at some point in time, because the front derailleur got all wacked out of place. I tried to fix it as best as I could, but it still doesn't shift like it should. I might try to look at it again, but I'm not sure what to do with it, because the closest bike shop is about an hour away.
Since you are a DL do you still ride your bike a lot or do you have to drive around to check on the other missionaries?
- No we still ride in the car/ drive the same amount. Elder Walker was the district leader before, so it's pretty much the same routine, it's just that I'm doing it now. We don't really have to go around and check on the district. Actually I live with our district. it's just us, the English elders, and the zone leaders. well, it was us and the English elders. I'm in a threesome now, I'm still companions with elder Warner, but we've added elder Brewer to our companionship, and we will be doing English and Spanish work for now. So now it's even more interesting, because it's just us and the zone leaders in the district.
So Thanksgiving is coming do you have an invitation to someones home yet?
How do you like the extra study time or is it hard not being out?
- There are good things and bad things. I've been learning a lot from the new study program that they have, but I do get a little bit of cabin fever every once in a while.
How is your teaching pool?
- So this week our teaching pool has been pretty low. In fact there was nobody in it. We really struggled this last week for some reason. We were only able to teach one lesson the entire week. However now that the English area is combined with our area we have a couple of investigators again. There is one that I'm actually pretty excited about, because it was a referral that we gave to the English elders last week. It was a guy that we found that was pretty drunk at the time that we met him. But he told us about how he had recognized that he hadn't been living like he should and he has really just hit rock bottom. he has tried many different churches, but nothings really helped him, so he's decided to give our church a try. The English elders taught him twice this last week, and he has a baptismal date for sometime in December.
We normally shared the car with the English elders, and they would have the car for a week, and then we'd switch. this week was our week on bike, so for elder Warner's first bike ride we went 25 mi. He was pretty worn out by the end of the day.
