My New Companion! A Sign From the Lord!
We had the cambio today! I will be staying in San Felipe again for this next month and a half! My new companion is Elder Kelson! He was the assistant to the president this last month and a half and its such an amazing blessing to have him as a companion. Our president knew about everything that was going on with my companion and that I was progressing, but he was hindering my progress... and that I was extremely frustrated! So, I called him on Saturday to talk about problem with a member and he told me that he had really amazing news for me and that I was going to LOVE my new companion. I didn't push and ask for who it was in that moment because I didn't want to be nosy.. but he didn't waste any time and asked, do you want to know who it is? Obviously I said yes and he said Elder Kelson, my assistant :) It was so awesome! There's so much that I will have the opportunity to learn! While I was talking and joking around with president I told him about the dream I had the night before about being told that Elder Kelson would be my new companion! A sign from the Lord he told me! Pretty cool. It's the last exchange for Elder Kelson. He will be going home after our companionship! Here in this mission we call it "dying". When you go home you die. And you "kill" someone when you are their companion for their final exchange. So far I have "killed" Elder Chung and now Elder Kelson. Hahah! All the elders keep joking about it with me.
