District Leader and Hard Work Pays Off

Dear family,

Elders Bartlett and Sirrine Loving the Snow
Thanks for the emails and the updates about the family. I´m happy to hear that you are all doing well now and that Zander got his wisdom teeth out without a problem. Also that Mom, Naiah and Isabel had a great time at the women´s conference.

District Meeting and Lunch
This week the biggest update is that on Wednesday they made me the district leader, after transfers and they told us through a text. I was not happy to get the news. Not happy at all. But, now despite a stressful week and a lot of meetings and calls with the zone leaders I am mostly capacitated as to my new job and I don´t like it. But, if I was called then it must have been for something. Now I just need to find out why and what to do about it. Also, we have a new Elder in our district named Elder Smith. He´s from Utah and I think it´s nice to have so many new gringos in the mission. We have received 36 new gringos in the last two transfers. Nearly all of the missionaries that have a lot of time in the mission are training. It´s crazy.

The other big thing from this week is that we have had miracles on stormy days. This last week has had a ton of storms and lots of rain, hail, sleet and snow. My comp got sick, I did too for a bit but we still got out and hiked the mountain (literally) and as a result we were able to find people that were receptive and want us to go back and visit them. Spring in Ushuaia is more like winter than winter was. BUt, I´m happy. Hope you all have a wonderful week and I love you guys tons!

Love, Michael
