Well this week has been interesting to say the least. Firstly, no transfers so im still in good ol dusty pucallpa haha (was kinda hoping for one but thats alright). This week I learned alot about the missionary purpose and about myself, especially things for me to work on. So far this whole experience has made me completely change my view of myself and i cant wait to start building more christlike characteristics. As far as good news goes, we have a baptism date! The 25th of this month we should have a baptism so my fingers are crossed! And There is only one peice of bad news, no pictures again :( sorry i havent been bringing my camera around and frankly theres not much to take pictures of anyways.
The lessons that we have usually go well, the people are almost always religious and they will usually be open to talking so having people to talk to isnt a problem, the problems come when we start teaching, because as soon as we introduce somethjng that isnt what their pastor has said in the past year they freak out haha. the other hard part is getting them to read. first off theres alot of people here who simnply cant... as sad as that is and the other half frankly dont care. super frustrating when people dont understand that doing something so simple could completely change their lives.
As far as my own teaching goes, sometimes i have the hardest time speaking and i sound like a blabbering idiot but for the most part im able to formulate gramaticaly correct sentences. My favorite part of the lessons is the testifying. Oh i just love opening the taps and leting the spirit hit em hard. by far my favorite parts of the mission so far have been when i can really testify of our Savior. Its in those moments i know im completeing the missionary purpose, all i have to do now is have more of those moments haha.
I hope my letters dont bore you all to death, i try to make them at least alittle bit interesting but i understand if youve all fallen asleep by now. If you havent congrats, and i hope you all have a great week. For scriptures, go read 2 Nephi 4, and remember, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak! Its up to you which wins! love you all, until next monday; Elder Grover
