Sunday, we did accounting, and our Zone Leader was talking to our
District Leader, Elder Abonitalla on the phone, but then the zone
leader wanted to talk to Elder Camero. So the zone leader whined to us
about how our KI's were so low, despite the fact that we just
in and we are opening the area and we couldn't work on Tuesday,
Saturday and Sunday because of transfers and district conference. So
then Elder Camero told the zone leader to watch and wait cause we were
gonna get 50 lessons the coming week and that's when I knew this week
was gonna suck.
So then we started working. All my comp could think about was teaching lessons. He was always trying to
teach the lessons really fast and he always spoke really fast and I am
positive that no one understood our message. We pretty much just found
lots of people and then talked at them. It was the worst. I taught more
lessons in a week this week than any other week on the mission, and it
sucked, because we didn't help anyone. I just knew
something was missing. Finally yesterday at church, the fruits of our
labors showed when not one of our investigators came to church.
So that's the update on
the work this week.
on the apartment situation, We just have to endure one more week. It
didn't flood this week surprisingly so that was nice. President and
Sister Andrada came to Lasam on Tuesday for quarterly interviews. The
interview went well and I love President. I learned that I need to
direct my studies towards PMG, so I can become a master teacher like the
Savior. President Andrada said we cant be perfect people but we can
become perfect teachers. Sister Andrada went with the other Elders to
the apartment and they said she was speechless (because of how bad it
was). So then to our satisfaction, the APs showed up on Friday with
mattresses and other stuff we needed so that was awesome.
the bummer with the work this week, I am really excited about this
branch. The leaders are awesome and super dedicated and the branch is
super focused on growing so we can get a chapel here (Because our church
here is just a tiny little meeting house.)
here in Lasam is trying to stay motivated and happy. All 4 us are having
trouble waking up on time and focusing during study hour because our
home environment is crap and we are all mad and homesick and
unmotivated and tired. I know that's no excuse. It's all about
perspective and making the best with what you got. And I could probably
cheer up and be happy and motivated if I willed it, but it's just hard
man. Hopefully I will figure it out this coming week. We all keep
telling ourselves it will get better when we get the new apartment, but
Hmmmmmmm. I think that's it for this week.
I love you all. Pray for us, and I will keep praying for all you guys.
