New Companion ... Surprise :)

This week was so crazy! Fist to find out that Elder K.... would be transferred and that he would be district leader in his new area, what a stud. I now have a new companion, his name Elder J..... He is from Portland, and the only member from his family. He joined when he was 17. He said it was hard on his family, but he is an extordainary missionary. He has left for how much I have been out. He isn't new to Surprise, he served in the North Surprise Stake for almost a year!! That is so long. He taught a couple that ended up moving into our ward .  So nice and I love them to death. Hopefully we can get them progressing more and members by the time that Elder J.... home in January. Miricales can happen.
Taking over the area was hard at first, but it is actually really easy now. We have been working with a lot of Part member families, because we want to focus them on the happy eternal family that both parents want. And the great thing is, is that there is an instant fellowshipper. That is something that we really need to pick up, member present lessons. If you have a friend that they can really connect to they will progress so much faster.  M.... is doing great, a lot of people stuggled having Elder K.... leave because he was here for so long. He was having such a hard time. But with what I have heard the first transfer is the hardest.
Halloween was exciting only got to work a couple of hours, we had to be in by six. There are some pretty crazy people/ Churches here. One called CCV. Very interesting church, pretty much a rock concert every sunday. We just found out that it was started by an ex-member. Some really weird things...
Jayson you stud! Wrestling like a champ.  I am proud of you. But Dancing??? You leave that in ballroom class. You should shoot at least 30 times within the first minute. You can't wait for them you have to be persistent. But now that you have had an excellent weekend stay humble. Humility is one of the greatest Chrstlike attributtes, but one of the hardest to gain. Build of the wins that you have had a remember the one who has blessed you with your talents.
I love you all so much you are all such a blessing to me. I feel your love and prayers. Keep up all what you do.
Love, Elder Jake Wade
