April 28, 2014

     Well this week we have walked SO much, I am working with my companion trying to teach organization and planning but the thing is... he isn't quite there and I dont know if he listens to me at all... So we just kind of wander and teach. We are playing scratch golf right now, without any real vision or plan, we just are talking to the world. haha      I am trying to get some pictures in on this email so I dont know if there will be a lot of... content but a picture is worth a thousand words sooo, we will go with that haha
     This week we have found a few people but this is really I think a trial of my faith, because I went from my last area that has had like a billion baptisms, all of which were people I found and taught :( and I missed the fruits of my labor because I got put in another dead area and I am trying to bring it back to life... Its frustrating. But I still am super happy to see the people I love take the step into baptism. Im just sad I didnt get to take those famous baptism pics with them... UGH I have been super sad about that but on a happier note, we are planting seeds a ton here and helping all that we know.
     Our president is about to leave in a few more months and well the mission is in full force preparing for the new president. I hope we get some baptisms in that time before he leaves. I am positive we can do it, My comp is the hardest comp I have had yet, but such a great guy. I dont want to say we fight but there are some intense moments here. This time in the mission is super tough, but I have noticed that throughout my mission every transfer is harder... so That is great I have good learning experiences in the future :) Im almost to my year mark, weird to think... I remember leaving the car like it was yesterday... time is flying and I have changed a ton in this year, Im thankful that I have another to do even more.
     Also in two weeks is MOTHERS DAY! So be prepared, we are going to do it!!! So maybe it wont feel like I'm in the bottom of the world.  Just know that I love you and that the church is true. I cant wait to see you all!!! But for now... The lord needs me to walk and be patient. How great is my calling! :) I am thankful for the blisters because they make my feet tougher haha Asi es la vida!

      All these stories, haha and one day I will tell you - that one with the dog... it followed us for two days straight. I named it Francis. We saved him from another dog and well he followed us EVERYWHERE! He got on buses with us, crossed busy roads, and well slept outside of the apartment all night. We went into lessons and he waited for us. One day someone took him off our porch and got rid of him. We didn't see him for three days, then Sunday we were out looking for a family in our suits and I heard a bark and it jumped on me and then followed us to church and well now Francis is always going with us... I love that Dog haha :)
