these past have been really good ones. I have been really lazy with my
journal writing the past 5 weeks....I am incredibly sad seeing that five
weeks ago was literally the first day that I hadn't written in the
entire mission....But I have been better these past couple of weeks. Its
just when we do splits and things like that I never have time to write.
But I will get it taken care of. I have repented and will be better.
We have a great area. I have already talked about it a little bit
to you guys Its super close to the church which helps out a lot.
are teaching a family. Well we actually have not been teaching them yet
because they are always gone!!! But we will get in there on Tuesday
and teach them. they have came twice by themselves!! Its a mother with
two daughters and a son. Good people. We are looking forward to Tuesday. I have no doubt they will be baptized. The moms sister is a member of the church and lives in Utah. That helps.
We have been teaching great people and working a ton with the
recent converts and with the less actives. In this area it is without a
doubt the best way to work. But we also knock tons of doors. Because I
am in love with knocking doors. I think its really exciting.
The world cup has been pretty crazy. But not too crazy. In my area
anyways. I know in Salvador...its pretty nuts. We have to stay inside
our house when Brazil plays because of the parties and stuff. But we
always catch bits and pieces of other games because EVERYONE we teach is
watching and will not turn off their tv. They pay attention to us but
will not turn it off. They think its cool that we love to cheer with
them and stuff.
We were teaching a married couple who was being kind of slow while
they were progressing. We decided to bring the hammer down and the
Spirit was incredibly strong. We taught the plan of salvation. They
loved it and could feel the spirit and felt that they needed to repent.
came around....and they didn't go to church. that often happens. I think
that's why I am so stressed. I care for these people and want to help
them with conversion and baptism but many times....they deny the spirit.
That makes me really sad for them. really sad....But we cant make their
choices for them.
I literally think my hair is falling out....but I think that is either
a Clyde gene or my stress....Just pray that it stops cause I have
literally cried at night about it. hahaha. Not really but almost. Its a
But I am loving every second I have here. I miss you guys a
ton. But I am not ready to get back yet. haha. I have learned so much
since I have been here on the mission. I have studied and studied and
studied some more. The doctrine of the gospel is addicting. I hope you
all are also studying as well. The scriptures are incredible. Study the
book of Mormon.
I love you all and hope you all have a great week. Pray for my baldness. haha
