New Comp

Hello my familia! This week has been different. We have started a new transfer and lots of changes have been made. My new companion is Elder Leisek from Mesa, Arizona. I don't know if you remember Elder Beecroft my companion back in Wallace before Elder Young, but they were MTC companions. They also came out with Elder Sosa so I have now served with their small group. They all have just hit their year mark and are doing great. Elder Leisek is a great missionary that I seem to get along with just fine. He is an athlete and isn't too shy around new things. I am excited for this new transfer. As you can see in the picture he is not brown, unfortunately and he is a little taller than me, but we have a good time. The other picture is of my last district. We were all very much spiritual giants you could say. :) The only other big change to the district is we did get sisters. I had my first accounting call with them last night and even though it went for longer than I planned it wasn't too bad. They are opening up the area they are in and they seem to be excited. I guess I'll keep you updated on how things go there.
Well this week has been full of miracles. Elder Leisek and I had a rough start, but the Lord took over quick and things started to get rolling. We have been finding lots of people and then Sunday lots of people brought friends that are just looking for the truth. We also had a random 15 year old girl show up just because she lives down the street and wanted to come to church. She had never even heard of the church. Miracles were seen all over the mission. The other awesome thing was that in sacrament meeting a returned missionary from the other ward that meets in the same building spoke to us. He just returned from South Africa. Well I got to talk to him afterwards and come to find out he trained Elder Richard Wilson. It really is a small world out there. Sunday was a great day for everyone. The work is progressing and even though I am working with some changes we have a lot going on to keep us busy. This is the best part of the work. I'm excited to update you on things next week.
So about the plaque thing. I decided I want both the NC and Virginia plaques or I may go less active when I get home. ;) I also like the scripture in   3 Nephi 5:13. Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life. 
 It's short and straight to the point and explains exactly what I am doing. Well I love you all and I am extremely grateful for everything you have done for me. I guess we are all praying to have the two Elders Burnham serve together. Keep me posted and I hope y'all have a great week.
Con Amor,
Elder Burnham
