Email November 15, 2016 – Elder Isaac Kenneth Burton
Goodbye Elder Maldonado
First off, don´t worry about the fact that I´m writing on tuesday, our p-day yesterday wasn´t much of a p-day because we were helping the misionaries that were ending the mission get off to the airport and everything. So we didn´t have time to write. And today we were with all the new missionaries, so now we are trying to get off a few emails now that we finished.
But wow, yesterday was weird. I said goodbye to my companion Elder Maldonado and also my trainer Elder Bahena. Two great missionaries who have become very close friends. How time flies. I´m grateful for the things that they both taught me. Now I am with my new companion Elder Tenhoeve! And wow, we are gonna have some awesome transfers together. He is from Logan, and is a ton like me. Likes mountain biking, wants to study medicine (is trying to convince me to do it at Utah State), and loves the gospel. the Lord has even already started to bles us with a few ideas that are really gonna change the mission. I´ll talk more about that in a few weeks. But yeah, it´s gonna be fun, i´m super excited to be with him.
On Sunday we traveled to the furthest área in the mission which was fun. WE had to move a few missionaries, I ended up driving for about ten hours, more than 600 kilometers. But it was fun, super pretty out there. Nothing but fields and open blue skies. I love this country.
Well, sorry I don´t have much time to write, seems like it´s always that way lately. But that´s life :) And it´s the best life :) I hope you all have a great week! I love you all.
Les quiero, Elder Burton
