Interviews in Moses Lake

IMG_5301This morning we went to Moses Lake after spending the night in Royal.  These great Zone Leaders welcomed us at the ML Stake Center where we spent the day meeting with the English-speaking part of the zone.  We had a great day with these fine missionaries.

This round of interviews, I’m talking with the missionaries about ways to be more likeable.  I’ve got some great handouts and suggestions from different experts that I’ll be sharing with all of you in the future  The question I’m asking this time is, “What would people say is the NICEST/most LIKEABLE thing about you?”  And then I ask each what they think the most likeable thing about their companion is.  Below you will hear their responses.

Elder Bawden and Elder Christensen are the Zone Leaders here, serving in the Moses Lake 4th and YSA Wards.

Elder Bawden:  People would say I have happy energy.   I would say that Elder Christensen has a lot of love and energy–he goes a million miles an hour!

Elder Christensen:  People would say I treat people equally, knowing everyone is better and different things.  I don’t look down at people who aren’t good at the things I am.         I would say Elder Bawden is straight up.  He always lets people talk and he listens.  He’s got a good ear.IMG_5304IMG_5306The treat of the month:  Scotcheroos!  You’ll find the recipe on the Mission Recipe link.IMG_5308
