Elder Martin Trains a New Missionary

We spoke with Justin on Christmas Day and he reported that on Christmas Eve he received his new companion, Elder Warner from Orem Utah.

He is excited to be training a new Elder and says that Elder Warner speaks better Lithuanian than he did when he first arrived in Lithuania.  He thinks the new MTC teachers (American's) may be better able to help new missionaries learn the language than the natives he learned from.

He will stay in Klaipeda and train for the last three months of his mission.  He and another Elder in his group are both training as their last assignment.  They would have usually trained earlier in their missions, but the Baltic Mission has not received new missionaries for more than 9 months.  He is excited for his new assignment.

He sounded great and we were excited to hear is enjoying his experience as much as he is.
