Crazy! (January 30, 2017)

Hey! It's been a crazy past week here. I don't even know where to begin! Tuesday we had transfers. Elder Perez and I didn't have to go down to Santa Rosa because we were both staying. We worked hard Tuesday and Wednesday but not too many people accepted us both days. We're trying to rebuild our teaching pool back up right now. We don't have to many people that we are teaching regularly. This transfer will be a lot of that for sure! Wednesday was a big day. We had a missionary broadcast! We talked and reviewed a lot about what was talked about last year. It was really good and interesting to see the apostles and leaders at work. They also made changes to our schedule. (I'll attach a picture of it) The reasoning behind it is to help us be more productive with our work. They've also given us more of a choice of how we use our time.  Some people have complained, I love it and can already see a difference in it! Good fun!

Thursday was MLC down in Rosa. We talked a lot about the broadcast and how we could best implement it into our mission. We also talked about joy in our service and how to better our companionships! As always, it was a super time. We stayed for a second after to do some prep for Zone Meeting. Then after that we went to see a missionary who was in the hospital because he broke his leg. He was in our zone. He was playing basketball with a less active outside trying to get him to come to church and twisted one way and broke his femur. They're scared there might be cancer in there because your femur shouldn't break that easy. They ran some tests and didn't find anything. He had to get transferred to another hospital to get the surgery so we waited there with him until he got loaded up in the ambulance. We waited with his companion and had to pair him up with some other missionaries. We got a call from president the next night saying we needed to pack up all his stuff because he was getting transferred to a hospital in Utah. Saturday, after zone Meeting, we traveled down to Clearlake and packed up all his stuff then brought it back to Ukiah for the AP's  to grab it and take it to him. It's crazy how your mission (or life) can change so very quickly. Don't take anything for granted. Live in every moment!

Saturday we had a good zone Meeting, relaying the stuff talked about at MLC. The zone has really changed and it's crazy the difference people's attitudes make in bringing the spirit. I'm grateful for that. This transfer we got a lot going on, which is good and will keep us busy! 

Thanks for your love and support. I love hearing from you and your weekly experiences. Love y'all!

Con Amor, 

Elder Joyner
