A good, but cold week

November 17th, 2014

Yeah, so the first northern wind came in this week and it got pretty cold, like down to 40 which here is cold. Especially because no one has heating in their house. But we had a pretty good week that was guided by the spirit. we were able to find some good investigators, including a young couple with a little 4 year old daughter. They were a reference from a member and we went and told us about some problems that they are having in their marraige that stem from the fact that the husband started drinking. So we're here to save the day! The good part is is that they want to come to church and want to change, the both of them. But when we got to their house Sunday morning to take them, they weren't there. They also didn't answer the phone the whole morning. It was kind of frustrating, when you see people that need to change, and even want to change and do the things we ask, and then they don't do them. We actually didn't have that many people in church this week on sunday so we're gonna be teaching a lot of Sabath day this week. 

I feel good though besides that people didn't come to church this week. The other Elders in our ward had 12 investigators in church yesterday so we are trying to figure out what we need to do different/better. And on top of that, we have our zone to worry about. I'm starting to understand a little of how the leaders of the church feel. Also, the mission has helped me understand how important it is that the church is organized, because there's quite a bit of disorganization here and I don't know, I feel good that I've been able to help at least a little organize the church here and edify it. 

Next week is going to be much better. I mean, slowly, we're improving, step by step. But pretty soon, we'll be killin it here. It's my time to shine!

Well, hope you all have a wonderfull week and hope your not freezing up there!
