This week has turned out really good. Our numbers are larger this week and picked up a couple more people to teach. We have a baptism coming up this Saturday, a 12 year old girl who's mom is a member but not active. So we have been working with them and the mom wants her daughter to be baptized as well as her 8 year old son. We are pretty much teaching the whole family because we are also teaching the step dad who's really interested in the Gospel. He was at church on Sunday and brought the kids too! But the mom didn't come. I feel the step father will be leading the way for the family with his willingness and humbleness, I mean c'mon he brought the kids to church and it was his first time going and the first invite we extended and is in full support of the kids being baptized.
So finally get one this transfer. Not much to tell this week just a lot more lessons and appointments. It's going to snow on Thursday up here. So be prepared. We might actually get a car, the ZL put in a word for us to get one now that the AP's are deciding who gets one. So tomorrow we are actually going on splits with the AP's in our area, I feel like they are doing that to snoop around our area to see if they think we need one. But oh well. Friday was kind of a rough day for us. We had interviews with the President. After we did ours with him one on one, he called my companion in and spoke to both of us. It wasn't fun. For some reason he pretty much broke us down to build us back up again saying that we weren't working as hard as we should of. And told us he doesn't really know why we are together just that he knew it had to be from inspiration. When breaking us down it did not feel good at all. But we walked out of that meeting more humble...and our numbers have improved! I know that I am out here for a reason, why I am here I haven't figured that out yet maybe I just need to meet that one specific person to teach but who knows. I know for a fact that this gospel is true. I know for a fact that Christ lives today by how many times I needed to be picked up. believe it or not missionaries still need to be picked up to. I know that being able to walk in Christ's footsteps is one of the best experiences I will have. I never knew it was possible to love people that you never met in your life and could only see them for a couple of months. I know the book of Mormon is the word of God and I know it was recorded by ancient prophets. I have grown to love it dearly and learn something new from it every time I read it. This mission is not easy. no one ever said it would be easy, but when I come home I know that I could do anything with Christ on my side and by also setting goals and plans. I love my mission, I love the missionaries here and the leaders. I love teaching and serving people. I love my family. I have let go of the past from school back at home. Not only is the Atonement for washing away sins but can also help you forgive. I miss home, and you guys, and the animals. But I know it will be the hardest thing to do when the time comes to leave this mission in 20 months. I love Jesus the Christ, my Savior, my Redeemer, and my Brother!
