I've had an awesome week! I'm in a new area, and still adjusting to that, but it's been awesome. I have two new companions, Elder Bergquist and Elder Dowuona-Hammond. They are both awesome missionaries, and I'm glad I get the chance to serve with them. Elder Hammond goes home in three weeks (that's why there are three of us). He's from Accra, Ghana. Elder Bergquist is from Las Vegas.
We've had some amazing experiences this week. Elder Arnold of the Quorum of the Seventy came to our mission this week. He taught us a lot. He was so inspiring and confident. Especially when he was telling us we need to shape up and be better. We got to hear him speak twice, because he spoke in a special conference just for members and investigators who speak Spanish. The whole meeting was in Spanish. I learned a lot from him.
We had another incredible experience. On Saturday night, we decided to go tracting at 8:30 (normally not the best time to go tracting...). At about 8:45, we knocked on a door, and someone let us in. We taught the entire Restoration lesson, committed her to read the Book of Mormon, and challenged her to be baptized. And she accepted! It was an incredible experience to be a part of.
Being a missionary is great! :)
Love, Elder Plehn
