June 8, 2015

Hey there everyone,

Well it sounds like a pretty eventful week even though everyone told me that nothing happened haha.  I´m really sorry about your eye mom.  I hope that you recover soon.  It´s good that it didn´t do more damage to your actual eye.  Yeah dad, the Lord of the Rings movies are always worth a watching.  I will definitely watch them with you guys when I get home.

Well to be honest sometimes I feel like I run out of new things to say.  We had a decent week this week.  We were able to find a few new people to teach and put some goals with some of the people that we have been teaching.  Unfortunately nobody came to church for the second week in a row so we have some work to do in that department this week.  We have been able to stay fairly dry this week which has been nice.  It has been raining a lot, but more in the morning and at night.  I did break down and buy a larger umbrella though that isn´t riddled with holes haha.  I was a bit tired of getting wet.  We have actually had quite a bit of heat lately.  The area here is flat and it is probably one of the smallest wards in geographical area that I have had.  It is nice because we don´t use like any money for busses etc. so we can buy a bit more food.  We had interchanges with the zone leaders this week.  It was interesting.  For being good missionaries they are not very clean missionaries.  I was however able to learn some good lessons about how to contact in the street more effectively which was great because it is something that we need to do a lot. 

I read a talk this week that really had an impact on me.  It is called the fourth missionary.  It talks about how there are four types of missionaries, but that only the fourth type really grows on his mission and changes.  The others just kind of go through the motions and don´t really take advantage of the whole experience.  It motivated me to be better and to really just give these last few months my all.  Maybe I haven´t been the perfect missionary, but it is a process and I know that I need to be the best that I can be especially as I am finishing up. 

Thanks for all of your support and love.  It means a lot to me.  I know that you guys are always praying for me and I really appreciate it.
