Training Take 2

Hey, I'm alive! I didn't get to write yesterday because transfer day can be crazy sometimes. My companion, Elder Ospina, got transferred. I had to pickup my new companion at the offices. His name is Elder Schupp, from Spokane Washington, and he's fresh out of the MTC. On Saturday I was told that I was going to train again, but they didn't tell me who. I thought for sure it was going to be a Latino, because there are very few Americans in the mission right now. I was so pumped when I went to the offices and met my new comp. This guy is a football player and he´s built like one. It's going to be a fun few months with him. He's super awesome. We're planning on talking a lot of Spanish together so he learns faster but it will be fun to speak a little more English and to be able to relate more with my companion. 

I was kind of relieved to hear that my companion got changed and that I was going to train because now I can do the things the way I want to, the correct way. Hahaha. I'm kind of joking, but really not...we are going to work our butts off in our area and we are going to turn our area around. 

Because I was sick all week, I read all of the Fullmer ancestor book and "I'd Rather Be Fishing"!!! (This is a memoir of Vern G. Morse, Nate's maternal grandfather.)  It made me really want to meet Grandpa Morse. I read all his baseball memories from high school. It's incredible how detailed they were and he was able to remember so many of his baseball games in such detail. I really enjoyed reading it and it made me miss baseball a lot too haha.

I went to a Doctor who is a member of the ward. She put me on a strict diet and bought me some meds to take. I finally can eat normal now! Last week my stomach just rejected everything. But after 4 days of eating strictly toast, fruit and this electrolyte drink I'm back to normal. 

Thank you for the prayers and support! Love you all!
