Another Great Week in the WKM
Thank you to all that wrote me this week. It was nice to hear how things are going back home.
This week was really good. We taught a bunch of lessons and found a few new investigators. The next couple of weekends we have baptisms planned of some really awesome investigators. The work is going forward and its exciting to see the changes is brings in peoples lives.
My language abilities got a nice test yesterday in the spanish branch. My companion and I were asked to speak about how to share the gospel. Of course I was shaking while I was reading but it was still understandable. I'm hoping it will be another little while before I have to speak in sacrament meeting again but its a small branch and the rotation is rather short because of it. Its getting easier to understand and to speak but I still make lots of mistakes.
So funny story for this week. We went over to a non-member lady's house to do some service. My companion and I think she is a bit of a hoarder and this is why; we were cleaning up her garage because she is older and isnt very strong. She has a 3 port garage and 2 of the ports are taken by cars. The last one was stacked floor to ceiling of furniture and boxes of random STUFF. Towards the end (6 hours later) we were putting some of the stuff back so she could pull her cars back in and there were a couple of EMPTY boxes that could be thrown away but she said "thats a good box, i want to keep it." She is a really nice lady and she is lonely but it was kind of ridiculous. Hopefully she will be more willing to listen to the message of the gospel because of the service.
Hope you all have a great week and remember that when life knocks you down, don't let it win. Get up and keep going. You are sons and daughters of God and you potential is more than you know.
