Im doing great and im loving my mission. I love the fact that no matter how much success i have or how much i fail in getting people to church i still have a positive attitude and an even greater outlook on life. Its really quite strange how happy i am even though our area is not progressing at all. i guess the fact of me just giving my service to the lord is blessing me enough to not let me get down on how little im having success here. This past week was really boring actually and nothing really spectacular happened haha. we had a great time finding our teaching group because we were primarily talking to men only and trying to only find the ones that would go to church this week and wanted to get baptized. so on saturday we confirmed with 11 people mostly men to go to church the following day and sunday rolled around and 1 person went. And to put the icing on the cake it was the woman friend that the investigator couple that we had to turn over to the sisters's who lives in our area and she went to the other wards sacrament! aaaarrrggghhh. i cant even write how messed up that is ill just have to explain it in a year and a half in person. Well, moral of the story and of the week is to never give up and to keep being happy because in the end God will judge up according to our works and if he sees that we continually tried to get people baptized he will let us rest accordingly. love you to the moon and back. have a great week!
