October 12, 2016 Let it begin!

Hey family! It's weird to hear that you're branching out and taking trips to different places. I hope San Fran was great. We had a great week this last week. It was super busy tying up loose ends from transfers but it was fantastic. We said goodbye to our short term amazing companion Elder Glick on Monday, it was really touching watching him reunite with his family. One of our investigators is really progressing. It's amazing seeing the difference between all the hundreds (maybe thousands) of people we talk to that "want" to change their lives and those elect few who are willing to actually do it. We should all strive to be like those people. It comes from having an eternal perspective and priorities. When you have those it becomes possible to develop the faith necessary to do things like quit a job on Sunday's, overcome an addiction or get married. 

This week is the start of what is bound to be one of the busiest 2 week stretches of my life. We have a member of the first quorum of the seventy attending the New Missionary Meeting and Departing missionary meeting on Friday then on Monday we have the first of 6 zone conferences  in 8 days. This is going to be fun. Love you! I pray for you all the time.

Con Amor,
Elder Sam McBride

We went on a split in Middletown New York on Tuesday, which is way up North. While up there the missionary that I was with and I contacted an Investigator Referral on a street named McBride Road. What a coinky dink. Also the missionary I was with was Elder Wilson, who just so happened to be trained by my trainer during his last 2 transfers. It was fun reminiscing.

I'm gonna miss Elder Glick. He was such a fun missionary to be companions with. Here's a picture of him sitting at President's desk. He then went on to write President a note that said "I sat in your chair President. - Elder Glick".
