May 25th 2014

Wow, what a long week. I can testify that I would rather sit and teach all week than walk around and look for people, a trail of the patient and the faith. 

We had the bapitism two weeks okay with the couple that goit married and then the husband was baptized, and the wife will be baptized this neek week. So that was good, but now there isnt anyone to teach, having more than 4 months in a small sector has showed that just about everyone knows me by name haha and I now tha majority of them by name.. That being said that task came up to find new people this past week, through refreeals and knocking the doors. 45 doors knowcked, and not much. 8 Referrals, not much. We still are strugglin to find people. So it looks like we will be switching sectors this week withthe sister missionaries to try out thier sector and they will be wroking in our sector. We will see how that goes! As far as the district goes, we had people in the other sector but for a lack of teaching a few things none of these people are going to progress because they arent going to church, so we are back to square one with that as well. The life of a missionary :) 

The family that got married is now super strong and preparing for the temple next year. The husband recieved the preisthood and will soon be getting a call in the ward. Super great family and are intruducing us to all their friends and family memebers to teach, so hopefully we can see some progress in some of their friends! Seeing families together is amazing. The hope and light in their eyes bring the changes in their lives! :) 

Enduring to the end. The challenges of life. The things we all go through. Thats the real trick. How we deal with the winds of life. Just like Presidente Monson said, we cant control the wind, but we can adjust the sails. Could that be anymore true? We cant control the way is. Its life, thats the way it is. But the way that we control oursleves and our attitude to the cicumstances, well that makes all the difference, and with the help our daily prayer, scripute study and weekly church attendance, makes the whirlwinds of life mangable as we adjust the sails. I wish you all a great week and hope you can adjust the sails to the circumstances of life.
