This past week in our district there were a bunchh going on visa trips and it turned out that we were in a threesome with elder roberts. in order to work our area more effectively, we called up vitaly donosov and asked him to come on a split for the day. in short, i got to spend the whole day doing missionary work with Vitaly!! it was one of the greatest days of my mission. we met with a member and an investigator and also went contacting. Vitaly got way stoked when we were contacting. it was really fun and i really wish i could serve with a russian. He is going to be a great missionary.
Elder Palmer and i are really trying to pump up the work in our area and get others stoked about it too. i realize statistics are not the most important things, but they track progress and success, and right now we are really focusing on picking up the stats and when other missionaries see that it is possible, they will hopefully strive for higher statistics and work harder. the mission could really do with a good charge up right about now.
we are today having a get together at the packards cuz its their last week. and there are a few transfers in our district too.
lots of other good stuff hapening with the work but im out of time. talk to you soon. capture the Christmas spirit in your hearts and in your lives always.
Love Elder Paul
