Just Came In From A Rainstorm
Hi Party People!
This week we finally had a semi normal week and got to work a lot in our area! We are working with the family members, nieces, nephews, aunts or strange neighbors of the members here because they aren’t super good at integrating anyone else. It was a great week of work but sad when Sunday morning comes and no one comes to church... it teaches you a lot about how your time really isn’t the Lords time, how you can do everything in your power but in the end have to be humble and realize that you’re just a small part of those peoples journey to come to know the truth. And maybe you won’t see the results immediately but one day those people will receive the ultimate gift of eternal life!
Our bishop here was released and a new one called. We went from short and serious Bishop Junior to big chubby and loud and joking Irmao Wilhames. It’s funny that the whole ward needs to trust in the callings of the lord, no matter who the person is or what they have done in the past- trusting enough in your testimony of the church that He wouldn’t call the wrong person.
It’s fun that on a mission you really learn how to adapt- I learned a few fun things this week. Like sometimes your kitchen sink backs up and smells like baby barf and you have to clean out the food chunks while your companion stands in the corner dry heaving. Or sometimes a few chickens will run through the living room during a lesson and the baby on the floor will scare one of them and it’ll poop on the floor and scurry out and you just gotta keep it all together for the sake of the lesson. Or sometimes you’ll share your beef jerky your nice mom sent from the states for your bday with your companion and she´ll spit it on the floor because she’s never tasted something like that hahahah. This week was a lot of good life experiences. You learn that you can’t control everything in life, and you just gotta make the best of every situation and go with the flow. I love my mission! And I love you guys! Don’t forget to pray for someone that you can share the gospel with this week! The lord is counting on you!
