the past couple of days have been some major emotional rollercoasters for us over here in departemental!! longhurst and i had the opportunity to have an interview with our president in our house the other day, and he sat me down first and we started talking.
"so elder wattles i want your companion to go to the office in three days and i want you to finish your mission greenie breaking here in departemental. how does that sound?
i cried almost! it was so sad to know that my comp was going to be in the literal same position that i served in the office! and i was sad to know that elder oldham, the guy that im greenie breaking, is going to be my last comp here on the mission. on top of that, this is literally my last sector in my whole mission!! yikes!! we did some despedidas with some of our friends here in departemental and then the office came by to snatch my comp away. him and i hugged for a good 2 minutes straight and i was seriously holding back tears cause i loved him as a comp and one of my best friends so much! then i got to meet elder oldham, my greenie!!!! he has about 5 months on the mission and loves hunting and fishing and working out. he is probably the complete opposite of my personality , but we get along super good! literally no complaining about him killing me! here in departemental, a lot of our friends have fallen off the grid and we have lost a lot of people to be teaching here in the past couple of days, but we are trying our hardest to find some more people to teach. as of right now it has been a lot of member visits and trying to help out our less active friends. its been going good, but just pray for us over here! we need some miracles!
love you guys literally so much. hope you guys have a good week! i have 8 more weeks until i can hug all of you guys!
