July 6, 2015Cortez, Colorado
This was a great week in Cortez. I am getting much more used to white people once again and I really am loving it. As it was President Adams' first week in the mission he is still getting settled in but he has a very crazy schedule. He has a couple of "Get to Know You" Zone Conferences a week and later in July will be have more regular Zone Conferences. He is a wonderful man and has taken upon himself the mantle of the President of the New Mexico, Farmington Mission. Many missionaries mentioned this and I experienced it as well, as President A. spoke he reminded all of us of President Batt. He sounded and even looked a little like him. The Lord has truly set him apart to watch over the missionaries in this mission, it was cool to have an experience similar to the one that the Saints had with Brigham Young.
Well the other people from this week was the 4th of July. While fun for many other people it was not so fun for us, at least not at first. While everyone was out and about having fun we were trying to find people who weren't at the lake or somewhere else. Well it was slow at first but it ended up being a good day. Once we had our first scheduled lesson the day began to flow. We had 3 lessons and while we weren't having lessons we went to the park, where everyone was parked early to see the fireworks. We talked to quite a few people and I also got to see 2 people from Bluff that I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to, so that was great. We also threw knives this week at the same place we threw tomahawks last week.
All is well. Thanks for everything.
Love, Elder Warnick
P.S.- My Mission President suggested that I ask this. What blessings have you seen in your lives since I have gone on a mission?
