Monday: TRANSFERS I got transferred to Munhava which is like a 10 min drive from my old area!!! and my comps name is Elder Shumway! So my area reminds me of my first area but way poorer these houses are barley houses but the people are very humble!!
Tues :Tuesday we spent exploring my new area so I could get to know it then I met our investigators and had a few lessons went home and slept!
WED: I just explored my new area and taught some people!!! It was a solid day.
Thurs: We woke up and EMERGENCY TRANSFER I found out that I was moving areas to the other side of the road and training!!!! So I am white washing an area and training!!! My new comps name is Elder Victor from Mocambique!!! So I don't have to do a lot of language training but he has a lot of training to do!!! He has to teach me the language so I can speak perfect!! So we spent that day cleaning the house because we got one more couple of missionaries in our house because my ex comp got a new comp as well but he is from Brazil and already out 12 months on the mission
Friday: Received my new comp, president came to our house and told me that I had to buy him a bunch of stuff because he had like nothing and that I will get reimbursed so as my comp was unpacking I saw that he didn't have any underwear so I asked him and he said he only had one pair and had been wearing them for 3 days!! (He hasn't been through the temple yet) so we went to the local market where you can find almost anything you want used clothes shoes and all the stuff that gets donated to here from america you can find!!! So we went shopping and I had to use my personal money because I didn't have any on my mission card because it was the end of the month! So we spent all day buying things for him.
Saturday: the other two pairs of elders had marriages and baptisms so we went to help clean and set up stuff. We got to the chapel at 8 in the morning and left at 8 at night so we didn't get to go into our area!
Sun: went to church and went home and studied and finally got into our area!!!!!!! so we explored it a little and did contacts and ended the day with 2 lessons and 7 contacts but our area we have one member family and that's it no one has worked their so we are hopping we will have lots of success!! It's going to be a fun transfer!!!!
