This was officially my first week as Zone Leader here in Juárez, and it was really exciting.
Monday and Tuesday were 2 of the craziest days I´ve had this whole cycle. On Monday, 16 new missionaries arrived to our mission. So we had to do all of the normal training and welcome meetings throughout the day. Tuesday was the day we did changes. We changed about 30 companionships this cycle, and we were in charge of coordinating all aspects of the changes. We were working and running around the Mission Office from, almost non-stop.
Elder Webster and I had our first taste of the Zone Leader life on Wednesday, when we started to get our Zone´s dats (data?). All the district leaders in our Zone report to us every night, and then we do a quick feedback on how that leader can help his district improve. Shortly after that, we report to the Assistants, and then call it a day and go to bed. The Assistants, Elder Robbins and Elder Rabell, are in our area as well now (and they live right below us). It has been a pretty crazy change, and now that we have 6 missionaries working here in Pradera Dorada, we are all really focusing on making this ward grow.
We have been working hard to really be an example to our zone, so we have really been trying to bust out more lessons, and find even more investigators. President Derbez has taught us that as leaders, we have to be an example to the rest of the mission in every way. He said that if our numbers and data is low, it can often be a reflection of how the rest of the Zone is doing. I really want to set an example, and I know that I can't do it without the Lord's help.
I am happy to hear from all of you! I am so happy that you too are hastening the Work Of Salvation.
