Monday June 24
Alright so this week has been a little cray cray!
This week flew by so fast and every week is getting faster and faster!!!! I've been working so so hard! the people here are absolutly amazing and my spanish is slowly coming! the Lord has blessed me so much this week!
On Sunday some drunk guy came into the church and his hands where dripping with blood and he started screaming some spanish stuff im probably glad I couldnt understand! so me and me companion had to escort him out.... pretty crazy.
Then the other night I was cutting potatoes and they wouldnt freaking cut so I tried to slam the butcher knife on the potato and missed and nailed my middle finger.....
I was so scared I cut off my finger that I couldnt even look down... and I was thinking im never gonna be able to play the piano again!!!! my finger hurt from hitting it so hard but when I looked at it I only had a small cut! personaly I believe I was protected.... no say.
This week was a little hard because I've been working as hard as I can to fix this sector and we got a whole bunch of appointments and we haven't even had any since I've been here. Then 6 of them fell through!!!! so hard!
Some people just don't understand the importance of getting baptized and taking upon the name of Christ and then those that have done so don't recongnize that they have to continue to live the commandments of god!
The people here really struggle with the law of chastity and getting married.
But today is gonna be awesome cause I get to play basketball! im gonna ball so hard! I haven't played in like 3 weeks!
Despite all the hardships and trails I never get discoraged. I absolutly love this gospel and I know that the Lord wants his missionaries to be successful! To all my Bros and Girls out serving or getting ready to serve, NEVER GET DISCORAGED!!!!!! it is satan!
Ive never missed my family so much but yet I've never been happier!
Thank you everyone for your emails of support and about your missions!
I love to here from you all! you are all AMAZING people and children of a God who has complete love for every person on this earth!!!!
I LOVE YOU ALLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
