I'm a trainer - craziness!

I know we just talked on Mother's day, but I thought I'd at least just reiterate the highlights of this last week.

So we get a call on Friday (which means something big is going down... Friday calls are leadership calls for transfers), and I get a call to be a trainer for a new missionary! That is a fun call, considering it wasn't too long ago that I was a new missionary. Am I nervous? Yes. Am I excited? Yes. Was I expecting this to happen? No, most definitely no.

Elder Croft is not too happy about leaving the area. He was convinced that he would be staying here for some time so he unpacked all of his stuff (which is a lot of stuff, enough to fill 3 suitcases, a bike box (no bike), and a study suitcase, and his backpack).Since he is getting transferred he has to gather it all up again and get ready to go. He has been called as a district leader elsewhere, so I will stay and train.

Not much is happening missionary work wise this week. Transfer weeks are always hard, and we often don't get a lot done because so many things are happening. So I will pick up a brand new missionary tomorrow and train him in the work until he gets his Visa for his ACTUAL place. We have no idea how long he will actually be here. I'm sure he isn't disappointed that he is coming here for a while, because every missionary in the MTC is told nowadays that visa stuff for other countries is actually very hard to get, so they likely will be going to a US mission for a while until they receive all the necessary visa stuff. And government is slow.... So it might be a while, or it might be three weeks. We really don't have a clue.

Well that's all I have for today. Hope Mother's Day was awesome for everyone!
