Companionship Changes

Communications from Elder white have been less frequent for a while, he has been hard at work. He loves all the correspondence he received from his friends and family and is doing his best to reply to each person.
Sometimes it is difficult though because of time constraints.
Here is a small update from Elder White!
"So something crazy is happening. I am in a companionship that currently is covering a ysa ward and a family ward, but as of today they are splitting up the trio I am in and sending my companion to cover only the YSA ward and me to go cover the family ward. But I will not be getting a new companion! Instead, for the next week I will have a mini missionary as a companion. this mini missionary is going to be studying with me doing weekly planning and all missionary activities for a full week, its going to be freaking awesome!! I go and get him today at four oclock, I have no idea who it is but i'll make sure to take videos and pictures for all of your enjoyment."

One Year Down and One Year to Go!

So much has happened at home while Elder White has been gone but so much has also happened for the dear elder out on his mission. He has been moved around a little bit, had the holidays with members and investigators as well as had some good times with other missionaries and has seen lots of neat things in his area.
 Here is Elder White with a ton of other missionaries and then with the mission president and wife.
Elder White: "So this past week I have been teaching English. Yeah that's right, I am an English teacher!!! The mission has a program called LA English, where we teach native Spanish speakers English and I teach the advanced class. I'm not going to brag but it's awesome!!!! Basically its used as a finding tool, we advertise through posts on bus stops and in laundromats or all Spanish speaking grocery stores. People come and we teach them English and the gospel at the same time and in other area's that have started it before we did are having great success. Our area just got started so we haven't seen any baptisms yet but hopefully soon."

Elder White and his companion are enjoying teaching some investigators and are hoping to soon look forward to doing some baptisms. 
There is now less than a year until his triumphant return and his family and friends are looking forward to it. Elder White even has some new family members to meet when he returns, there are three nephews/nieces he has never met before! He is looking forward to holding those babies when he gets back since he has never been able to do that. 
Easter is coming up and that is another great time to write to Elder White and even send him some Easter candy love! I know I will!
