Well, this week here in California was a pretty standard week in missionary work. We visited several people, and there were others we were unable to meet with.
The thing that sticks out a bit is that we went on exchanges with our
district leader and his companion. I went to their area with the district
leader. and the junior companion came here. We left each other on Wednesday
night, spent all Thursday together and then met up again at district meeting on
While on exchanges with the district leader, we went out to do a blitz
with the Spanish missionaries in the area (a blitz is where a bunch of
missionaries gather together to knock in a certain area). While on this blitz,
they, the missionaries who organized it, decided to split up companionships. So
I went with a Spanish missionary from this group to go knocking. It kind of
helped that he spoke Spanish, so that when we encounter someone who only speaks
Spanish, or uses that as an excuse, he can talk.
All in all, it was rather
interesting being on an exchange within an exchange. Other than that, this week
was fairly normal, for missionaries.
