Everything here is just fine. The work is still tough and going pretty slow. Probably most of the citas (appoitments) we make fall. Mostly just because the people arent home for some reason. So that can be a bit frustrating. People are still never in the steets so contacting can be difficult too. Lately we have been just knocking doors. Alot of people say either they just arent interested, they are busy right now, or they say ok but when we ask what day would be best for them they say they work all the time and have no free time. And alot of the time when it is a street contact they say they would like to talk more but then when we ask where they live they give somewhere super far away or somewhere super general, so we ask for a street number and house number and they say they dont remember it or they dont have one, so we ask for a phone number but they say they dont have one. And then sometimes we get lucky and they actually give us a time and place when we could teach them. And then out of those good ones very few are actualy home when we come over at the time we set. So yeah that can be a frustrating sometimes. But i guess all that really matters is if we always keep trying. And we have been trying hard lately. So thats good.
Me and Elder Bryce have been getting along well. We both want to do the best we can and always be obedient. Sometimes it can be a bit hard to know what we need to do like when a cita falls because we are both super young in the mission. But we are definitely learning and trying to get better.
Well thanks for being such a great dad and teaching me well!
Well happy birthday mother! 43 isnt super old! Just a little :)
This week was still super hard. Finding new people is really tough but we did have a bit of success with this. We found 3 new people this week. But im not too sure how well they are going to progress. 2 of them are super catholic i think, and we only got to teach them the first half of the Restoration so far because of time. The other guy is pretty good and accepted baptism but still didnt come to church yesterday. So I dont know. Hopefully they will be good. And none of our other investigators came to church yesterday either. So everyones baptismal date fell and will have to be pushed back at least week.
No i didnt get to watch the Christmas Devotional. We were only aloud to if we brought an investigator. And we werent able to do that.
So far i have been too tired and lazy to do any exercising in the mornings. But we just bought this long stick for $1 and we have a bunch of water jugs that we are going to tie to the ends of that. So we are going to start using that to exercise.
So for Christas we are aloud to skype. So be ready for that. Would 3 o'clock for you guys (4 o'clock here i think) be good for you? I think that is what my companion can do.
Well i think that is pretty much all for this week. Sorry i dont have more.
Oh i forgot to tell you that yes i do email my president. But theyre not nearly as long as chelseas. Theyre just short and boring
