This week was a good week. We have been focusing alot on becoming better in the small things so that we can have success. We are still working with a family and they are doing well. We invited them to be baptized but they said that they aren’t quite prepared yet. But we are still working with them to help them be prepared and to have more of a desire. it was also hard because the didn’t come to church this week, but we do not lose hopé.
We talked with H (the girlfriend of B) about why she didn’t want to get married. And we figured out that the only thing that is stopping them is money for the lawyer. Well we know a lawyer thats a member that will do it for free. So we just have to talk to all of them this week and choose a date and start planning. Its really exciting. they are going to go to all sessions of conference this weekend. WOO
We ended up loosing alot of investigators this week because they stopped progressing and stopped wanting to repent and change their lives. This has been hard and a challenge of faith. I want so badly to finish with success but it is in the Lord’s hands. I just have to work diligently, have faith, and trust in the lord.
I did exchanges with Hna Taylor this week and she has grown so much as a missionary. I loved being able to work with her again.
in the womens conference there was a talk that really impacted me. it was about a woman with cancer that got back from her first session of Chemo and was feeling terrible and complaining to her husband and her husband just looked at her and said. well it looks like we have to find someone to serve. And i loved that. Sometimes there are things going on in our lives that are hard but the BEST way to find happiness is to serve someone else. I have learned that time and time again as a missionary. I love serving people.
