December 10th

Haha man my mission has just been to crazy to say the least. But my
> prayers came true!! Saturday President called and decided he was going
> to leave me in Okolona because he feels that Elder Baker and I are
> going to be doing great things. So thats super exciting. That means
> Elder Ferguson will be going back to Versailles with a Visa Waiter and
> he doesnt really know the area. He was only there for 1 week and so
> hes really nervous. Its pretty much like they are white washing the
> area. Ya our apartment is 508. My bad. But ill be going back onto a
> bike tomorrow so im not really excited about that in all honesty. Its
> going to be a really cold winter haha. We have had a car this week
> just because there were no missionaries in Versailles, but now that
> Ferguson is going back we have to go back to bikes. This week has
> rained every day and so its going to be really cold if it keeps
> raining. Like raining all day. But I am really excited to be back here
> serving with Baker and around Warner and Duran. I guess in the Zone
> Leader conference with President, Warner and Duran talked to President
> about me staying so that makes me feel good that they wanted me to
> stay!!
> This week was a really hard week though. Just all of our plans fell
> through like every day and it was really frustrating. We were planning
> on having at least 6 to church for sure, and then we only ended up
> having 2. I guess thats better that nothing. 2 is what President
> expects from us so at least we met the standard. Something that really
> scared me that happened this week, we were going to Versailles with
> the AP's to pack up the rest of my stuff and they were talking to
> Baker about how he has felt being a District Leader and then when we
> were leaving they said they want us to be "Co District Leaders" And so
> I think Elder Baker will be going Zone Leader after this transfer and
> then I will be going District Leader.... SCARY!!! I feel like im not
> really ready for it. Like I am excited, but nervous for sure. Like
> there are a lot of Elders that areant District Leaders until theyve
> been out like 16 months. Ive only been out 8. And they also said Ill
> be training soon and If Elder Baker goes to Zone Leader we will be
> short missionaries and I think ill have to train a Visa Waiter. Its
> kinda nerve racking to say the least. Like im willing to do it, but I
> just didnt think it would be happening soooo fast.
> Before I forget, please send me a Westbrook 7th ward roster cause I
> think im going to put together kinda a Christmas letter and so I
> wanted to send some to people there.
> So my watch.... no offense... I probably wont wear it so Im going to
> send it in the Christmas package home. You can just take it back. I
> would just rather not have a watch to be honest. Like we carry a phone
> but ya. Maybe ill look at TJ Maxx and see If I can find anything. But
> thanks for the package. It was really nice. The OREOS are great and
> Elder Baker is loving the TimTams haha. He had never had them before.
> Im not really sure where we will be skyping..... honestly I dont know
> who has skyping capability in my area. Like Frankfot I could have
> found anyone, but there areant a lot of members in my area, and most
> of them dont have a lot of fancy stuff. Pablo and Fabiola might. And
> we might be able to go where the zone leaders go. But Im not positive
> if I will be able to skype just so you know. Ill try all that I can to
> be able to find a way to do it, but ya.
> So i have wrote a lot about Pablo and Fabiola through out my emails.
> They were inactive when I first came into this area ya know?? This
> week, Pablo gave the lesson in Elders Quorum and it was sooo amazing!!
> Like he has come such a long way. I feel like it was just as rewarding
> as baptizing someone. It was so great to sit there and just see him
> teach and share his experience about being inactive for so many years
> and how the gospel has just changed his life.
> Ill be honest Im kinda sad to not be able to go back to Frankfort and
> say goodbye to everyone. Cause President told me I was going back so I
> didnt really tell bye to anyone, and then he told me I was staying to
> I just had to call them and a lot of them were really sad. But I am
> happy to be back. Its going to be an adventure in the rain to say the
> least. Its been raining every day this week!!!! Like I really hope it
> stops raining now that were going back to bikes.
> I dont really have too much else to add this week. There wasnt really
> anything that just was ridiculous or anything. Just kinda a same old
> same old. i feel like i repeat myself every week but thats ok.
> Love
> Elder Knudsen
