week One in waterloo

So i dont think this Waterloo is the same as napoleons, so that is good! But i did get sick on the weekend again! But im getting better, not sure what set it off- guess i just dont run as much as a used too! But my new companion is elder smith, he is awesome- he is from Hawaii! And get this- he has only been out one transfer, so i am follow up training him! The area/ward is called the Kitchener Waterloo ward, so yeah.  its awesome- everyone there in the ward is super nice, im glad we have  a supportive ward. Spanish branch is at the same time ina  different part of the building. i have a nice apartmen, havent cleaned it up yet but i will.  we got some changes to the misssionary schedule, so that is good- LDS.org will have the exact details, but they are giving us more freedom and agency to choose what to do with our time.  Just like i think moving from like the law of Moses idea to the Higher law Jesus taught, so many blessings are in store im sure. slow on teaching this week since im new to the are and i need to train elder smith and i got sick.  but this week we are teaching an investigator that wants to get baptized! So we are excited, more on that next week! let me see… Zone Council was good.  had that on Saturday.  we are now driving a Toyota rave, we are so blessed to have a car.  Too many blessings from the Lords. well, thats the week.  Oh and shout out to the patriots! You all know the details (Note- my mom is actually from new England so i am an actaul fan, but i love the Falcons too so i would have been happy either way soooo yeah).

loves,

elder Hanks
