This was a very interesting week.
Honestly, Everything will work out in the end. He allows certain things to happen to help us grow. Keep an eternal perspective. I am at the end and the best is yet to come.
First of all we got another companion for the rest of the Transfer, Elder Jaynes. I like him a lot and it has relieved some of the pressure between me and my normal companion. We still don't really get along but we try and work through it. Work here has been very slow because of everything that has gone on, but hopefully it will pick up this week with school starting soon.
This is the first time I have been in a trio and I was honestly very anxious about it, but it seemed to work out great. One night we got a call atto come to the mission office to pick up our new companion. We didn't talk much that first night, but the next day I got to know him really well when Elder Robinson wasn't feeling well. He is from southern Georgia. We have gotten along great.
There was one point this week that was particularly hard. It seems as though this is one of the most challenging parts of my mission, with the crash, areas and companionships. I can't lie, it has been hard to stay strong near the end, However two things come to mind. During the particularly hard day the words to "Be Still My Soul" came to mind.
The second thing is something that a wise ward mission leader taught me near the beginning of my mission. His name is Bro Gustavson. He is one of the greatest men I have ever met. He showed a video of a football player making a winning touchdown. When he gets near the end within a yard he starts to celebrate and drops the ball thinking he has crossed the line. However the ball stays in play without that team knowing. The other team then takes the ball and runs across without opposition and wins the game. DON'T DROP THE BALL! You are not finished until you are finished. Endure to the end
I love you all and miss you greatly. It has been an interesting last two transfers. However I intend not to drop the ball.
Till next time,
Elder Dallin S Pulsipher
P.S. also you may be wondering why there have not been any pictures. Well that is because I want to give you some suspense when I see you in two week.
