This ipad thing is so cool haha, my president has one and his wife let me take a look at it, pretty jealous haha. Anyways, HELLO FAMILIA!! This week has been super hard, yet passed by super fast, i didnt even recognize what day was which this week so much stuff had happened. Haha yet it feels like a long time ago that i wrote you guys, yet its only been a week. I had a few meetings this week, which i loved alot, i learned a whole lot of stuff. I also had my last zone conference before i come home, that was quite sad to see all of the elders that have become such good friends over the two years, it finally set in that i wont see many again and it was quite sad, yet it feels like i still have forever until i get home, so its been a weird week full of feelings haha. Investigator wise, we have no one progressing, noone has come to church... Its super frustrating because i have focused as hard as i could, as hard as i can, yet no one either wants to listen to us or wants to complete, so thats super difficult, its alot easier to focus on the mission when you have alot of people to visit and you have to think alot about how to help them, yet i feel like very few people are listening to us. I dont feel like i have the confidence of the members because i havent brought a single new person to church since ive gotten here. Im very frustrated, at this point im not sure if ill baptise anyone til the end of my mission but at least im determined to fight it until the end, i want two more baptisms to reach my goal that i put when i got to the mish, so i really want to reach that. I love teaching but there are not much to teach, and many more difficulties but hey, im used to that haha.
Its been rediculously hot this week, supposedly we are in the middle of winter, but ive suffered so much this week from the heat haha, but im used to that, im sure god just wants me to get my fair share of heat before i come back to the paradise of UTAH!! So i can put up with it.
Maria got baptised, it was a very awesome baptism, so many people from many branches came and supported her in her decision, it was definitely a baptism that got the whole branch excited for the help she will give us. And her family came to watch so there is my hint of hope in baptising others, i sure want the whole family to get baptised, but its a huge job haha, but ill get it done. My camera broke, wont turn on so im camera hopping between Elders, its going to be quite the job getting all of those pictures back into the same memory by the end haha, but ill see what i can do to fix my camera, it broke so close to the end! FREAK!
I feel like my attention has been the same since ive started the mission, ive given the same focus to the mission as i do now so ive always been trunky, and always will be trunky, but i will always work and try to do the best that i can, this has been the ¨thorn in my side¨ as Paul states in the new testament, the weakness that god wont take away from me haha.
Ive learned some new ways to work so im going to do the best i can to put that into practice in the little time i have left.
Dad and Collin, i finally got the leather cases and man they are the coolest things ive ever seen!! Now i just want to read all of the time because i love holding them, so i feel like thats the greatest sovenir that i can bring back for you guys, your gonna love it! All crocadile and rattlesnake and iguana, its like im coming back from the jungle haha. Anyways, i think thats all. Send some more pictures, i need to see pictures, or im gonna die.
LOVE YA ALL!!
p.s. i cant wait to play the piano and eat crazy italian food with gramps again!
