Usually, at the training meeting, where the trainer meets and is assigned to his trainee, it works like this; Trainers on one side of the chapel, and trainees on the other side. The President reads the name of the trainee, and then that of the trainer, and they meet, hug, and sit down together. When they called my name after Elder Charles's, I went up to receive my companion. As I went in for a big hug, my six foot something companion picked me up and lifted me four feet off the ground. Everyone was laughing, but I was just afraid he was going to eat me!
Things couldn't be better with Elder Charles! He's learned a lot already and will learn plenty more. He's bold and has no fear, which are qualities that will make him an outstanding missionary. He's lived a humble life. His study is a slow process, but he's consistent. The simple things, like planning and writing things in the agenda, take much more time, because he's learning something new, words, pronunciation, or spelling, all the time. I've put up a chalk board in the house where we practice daily, and it seems to help connect visuals with what he hears. Its a pleasure and a joy every day to work with him, and I couldn't ask the Lord for a greater learning opportunity. Love you all,
