This morning we drove to Moses Lake from Royal to start another round of interviews. The new schedule has us interviewing and holding zone conferences Every transfer now, instead of alternating them every other transfer. This is going to be a wild ride. We’ll be hanging on to our hats!
We started off with our Moses Lake Zone Leaders, Elder Poloncic and Elder Moser. Being February, I decided to share a message about Loving as Christ Loves. And I’m asking each 3 things they love best about their companion. Elders Poloncic and Moser have been together 8 weeks now in ML 11th and the YSA Ward.Elder Poloncic: Elder Moser always takes time to listen to you. He has a big heart. He is an amazing singer.
Elder Moser: Elder Poloncic is super obedient. I love his sense of humor and ability to have fun. He cares about everyone.
Elder Olivas and Elder Nunez (together 8 weeks) in ML 9th Spanish NorthElder Olivas: I love Elder Nunez’s sense of humor, his spirituality and I love that he understands where I come from (both are from Mexico).
