Another wonderful week in the Acworth Ward

This past week was a bit stressful mainly due to all the events that we had going on, zone conference, broadcast, two exchanges, and transfers. Wow! That was a lot going on in one week! But we successfully were able to remain calm during the excitements of last week. 

The exchanges that we participated in were absolutely wonderful. I had the opportunity to learn from Elder Argyle and Elder Richardson. These elders are amazing examples of devoted missionary service. I was very happy to have had the opportunity to serve and to learn form both of them! 

Zone training went much better than I thought it would.  We spent a long time preparing for it so it ran very smoothly and we were able to cover all the information that we planned on covering.

I am excited for the opportunity that I have to serve for at least 6 more weeks in the GAM.  It has truly been a privilege. One thing that built my testimony this week is that our Heavenly Father wants to forgive!!

1st Update 2016

Great week!!!!!!! It was a wonderful week here in Acworth. It is starting to cool off, there is frost on the car every morning when we head out.   We found a bunch of new people to teach this week, so that was cool.  New Year's was fun, we went and watched a firework show at one of the parks near by.   Transfers will be coming up In 3 weeks, I will more that likely be staying in Acworth for the last 6 weeks of my mission, and elder Zavoral will more than likely be heading to a new area :(    We went on exchanges this week like always, it was good!   The mission department is having us do exchanges differently than we have ever done them before.   Instead of one swapping companions and working both companionship areas we will now be working in our area with the other companionship for 24 hours. It's an interesting concept to say the least, but we will see how it all plays out.   Other than that I am doing great!!!! just trying to stay as warm as I can:)
Love Elder Gebauer
