Week 15: October 10, 2016

This week, I got my new trainee! His name is Elder Cobabe and he is from Malad, Idaho. He's a super awesome Elder, ready and willing to serve! On our first morning together as a companionship, we were having out studies, we got a knock at the door. We opened it to find a firefighter in full gear, gas mask and all, standing there. He told us, "There's been a gas leak at the nearby construction site. We need to evacuate these buildings!" So we took our things and had our studies outside that morning. Later that day, we heard from one of the members that the news said it had been a radiation leak, not a gas leak. Soooooooo if I start to grow an extra eyeball, please try not to stare. What a way to kick off his first full day out in the field! When he was in the MTC, Elder Cobabe had an Elder in his district that went to highschool with me, Elder Braden Chun! In MY MTC district, Elder Cobabe knew a certain Elder Christenson! Small world.

Second bit of announcement: WE GOT A CAR! We are now a hybrid area, working both the car AND the bike! Super thankful that we are now able to get places faster and see more people! (We still use the bikes a lot #bikelife)

I am super excited that the work here is going so well! We have almost 20 investigators and 10 of them are progressing! It is such an exciting time to be here in this area! I am excited that this is gonna be Elder Cobabe's introduction to the mission field! There is a lot of potential here and we have a few baptisms coming up and we have a few people we feel are ready for baptism! I have learned more and more to rely on and turn to my Heavenly Father in ALL things. I have been working on turning to Him more and more in prayer to ask for His guidance. He does hear us and will answer us. Seek his guidance and counsel in ALL you do. Give thanks frequently. You will see as I have seen, His hand and His influence in your life.

I love you all! Thank you for your emails, prayers, and support! Until next week!
-Elder Kaitoku
