I had a really good study today at lunch time. I finished reading Jesus the Christ and it was really good. It was talking about the second coming and how we need to be ready for it. I felt the spirit really strong and also felt a new sense of urgency to do this work. I was on a spiritual high after lunch. We also had a really spiritual lesson today with Bro. Hart. He is an inactive but with the new way of doing things we decided that we’d just teach him a first lesson plan. The spirit was really strong and I know that he felt it. He really has a testimony of the gospel and its truthfulness. He was really saddened by the fact that others don’t have the truth.
I’ve been feeling not the best toward my companion. I don’t know exactly what it is but I just clash with him. I know that I shouldn’t but I’m having a bit of a hard time with it. I guess he just feels kind of shallow to me. I don’t know if that’s just my perception, or if he really is like that.
Another problem we have is finding people. I know that it’s hard to find but every time we OYM, Elder seems a little bit shy. I’m, again, not sure why I feel that, just that I do.
For the record. Elder Cox was an awesome companion. I think that this entry is more indicative of the difficulty with any transition to a new companion and not anything “wrong” at all.
