This week has been HOT!!! Like REALLY HOT! It’s been over 90 degrees for like 4 days and the humidity is awful! I thought I was in the Midwest, but now it feels like I’m in the south! I feel bad for my brother who will go to Louisiana on his mission, every day will be like this!
So this week has actually been kinda hard. Maybe not hard the whole week, but definitely slow for some reason. It might’ve just been slow because we had lots of meetings to do this week, but those are all over with and so hopefully we can get going this week :)
This week we were only able to meet with Estefani and Jesus two times :( they canceled the other appointments. But the two lessons we did have were really good, even with crazy kids running all around. We went to their house yesterday morning to get them up for church, and they didn’t come because Jesus left his wallet sitting on a bench at work. That was a bummer. We were really hoping that they would come. But Satan is really working hard on them. He is putting lots of trials in their paths, we are just hoping that we can help them overcome it. The members we have been taking to the lessons have really been good support.
We were able to have a great lesson about the sacrament with Rosa Hernandez and her nonmember husband, Juan, about the sacrament and coming to church, and we know they felt the spirit and wanted to change. But then they didn’t come to church.
That’s what made the week hard, is we had good lessons that had the spirit in them, and then nobody acted according to the revelation they had received. Man that is frustrating!
Saturday we were able to help a member cut down a tree. It was so hot and humid, that sweating didn’t do anything, so it just dripped off our bodies. It was kinda gross, but it feels good to get out and do some manual labor :)
Sunday we were able to meet with a part member family that moved into our area. The husband who isn’t a member really wants to get baptized, it’s just the fact that they can’t get married right now, which is a bummer. It’s so weird how many people are out there who want to get baptized, but they can’t!
The work is true, and if it wasn’t, then it wouldn’t be this hard. :)
