Things are going great in Walsall

Hey guys, hope you are all doing fantastic! 

Things are going great in Walsall! It has been so sunny here lately, It's way nice. The work is still pretty similar, we do a lot of finding in town centre (which is a 15 seconds walk from our flat). So the days feel pretty similar sometimes, but it's great! We teach a lot of people on the street, and the majority of the return appointments we have are done at a bench or table in town centre. So I've gotten used to the town centre pretty quickly.

It has felt so strange, as my companion is going home after this transfer. So that's been a bit hard.
But really, things are a blast out here. My comp. get along really well, and it's super enjoyable.
It's funny how much easier it is to work, when you like the people around you. We do a lot of exchanges here as well, so that keeps things lively. It's so strange to think in a few weeks I will have been out 6 months! I have learned so much, it's unbelievable. This has truly been a wonderful experience so far.

We recently got a new mission president, and we had our first interviews with him this past week. It was awesome, he is such a cool guy. He tried to tackle elder Sioeli when he found out he played
rugby. (Yes this was during the interview). Just a really fun guy. It's amazing how quickly you can learn to love somebody when you pray for it. I am so excited to serve with President Leppard, I know it's going to be amazing.

I want to say more, but I have no idea what to say... We have a few people coming to church, but they're not too solid.. As their lives are kind of in shambles, and they aren't overly dependable
at this time. But hopefully we will continue to find more great people, and eventually find those who are prepared to receive the fullness of the gospel.

Again, I hope you are happy and growing. I wish you well.
Until next time,
Elder Jarvis
