Well my new area is definitely a lot different than anywhere else I've ever served. It's all neighborhoods. Even when I was in Pullman I didn't have to do a lot with normal, modern neighborhoods since I was always on campus. Our area is pretty small so we only get a car a couple days a week, we have to share it with some other elders. When we don't have the car, we are on our bikes. Which I really am not a big fan of. That's definitely one stereotype I've been able to avoid so far and would have been ok with avoiding for the rest of my mission.
Another big difference between this area and past ones, is that there is a lot of wealth here. It's noticeable and I'm not use to it. We live in the basement of a member's home. Sort of. We pretty much just have a bedroom and a bathroom. But for the next week we're living with the elders we share a car with, because our members are having family over. The mission office is deciding if the should make that permanent.
We're hoping to try and get the area going somehow. There aren't any investigator's and the ward hasn't had a baptism in over a year and a half. Elder R. and I are hoping to change that.
Well, that's all for the week!
