Elder X is a tall Elder that had little time in leadership when we got here. He goes home in 4 months so therefore we will have had him for 12 months.
We moved him to a Senior companion, and then to a District Leader. He is loved by all.
Today’s conversation following Zone Conference:
Elder X to me: I love you guys. Is there anything I can do for you?
Me to Elder X: Matter of fact there is. Come over here and talk to the President (we had already decided we were going to call him to be a Zone Leader in 2 weeks)
Me to President: Elder X wants to know if there is anything we need from him. I told him there was.
President to X: Elder X, I want you to be a zone leader on the next transfer.
Elder X laughs, hugs the President, tells him he loves him and walks away.
10 minutes later
Elder X. to me: You have to quit scaring me like that! I almost took President serious!
Me to Elder X: He was serious!
I walked away with Elder X’s eyes wide and mouth open.
