This week was kind of a struggle to be honest. Not that it was horrible because we did have some ups. Maybe I just noticed the downs more, I am not sure. There is always something to be learned I suppose. We had a couple good lessons. The lesson with our investigator from Mexico was great. Oh my gosh, I don’t think I have really wanted the gospel so much for someone. I feel like we can relate; maybe that’s why.
It has rained so much. Yesterday I felt like a wet cat all day; just going from place to place all wet. We finally got two students to show up to English class! Except when we were about to start teaching, the lights in the church went out. We ended up teaching outside until it got too dark to see.
We traveled a little bit this week trying to visit and find less actives and some refugees. The only issue with that is when you travel it takes like 2-3 hours to get to them so it takes all day. President Simmons said we can’t go out there anymore unless a member drives us. That will be a trial because we have about 20 people that come to church and only 3 have cars. So it will be a new challenge finding new people to teach around the church area. The lady we are teaching from Sarawak in Bahasa came to church with her whole family. Her little girl just loves me. It is so funny! I walk in and she screams and goes ba!! Her little mumble is so cute. She grabs my hand and we are just best of friends.
This week I had some good studies on humility. The Be Thou Humble talk from this past conference is great! I also learned again how keeping an eternal perspective on things will really help when making decisions. If you just understand there is so much more than just now or just today or just this life, decisions will get better and outcomes will, in the end, be the best. I studied about faith and hope. Those two just go hand in hand. To reach the highest degree of faith you can get, all you have to do is keep the covenants you have made. I remember my baptismal covenants, and I can’t wait to get back to the temple again. I studied on peace today and realized you have to listen, learn and walk. The learning part comes when you go to the temple and feel of the peace that is there. So many things to learn!
We are waiting on transfer news. It will be pretty interesting; there are 7 new English Sisters and 9 new English Elders. We only have 4 English Sisters and 1 English elder right now! It should be fun to see who trains. Sister Crandall’s brother just got home from his mission in Washington DC this past week!
You all are just the best, you know that! I love you long time. Hope you have a good week.
Transfer news came in and we are staying the same.
