What's up Guys,
Hey it was a bit of a tough missionary week for us overall this week. Nothing came easily for us. There was still some bright spots and some good people. Our weekly planning was brightened up (and in the spirit of this being the Jazz's year to go all the way (while I'm home for it)), by us organizing our investigators into Power Rankings on our Big Board. It makes it way more fun to plan that way. Also lets us see how legitimate or not people are. We're struggling to have people with pure desire who really want it. It's tough, it's a trial everyday. But we're going to keep going. And keeping the faith!
One of the highlights of my week was looking for a CBR down in one area. We'd looked for this guy for probably 20 minutes going around asking people in the area but no one was helping us. Well a tip off from the last update on the CBR about 2 years ago from my man Elder Myers said that he likes to hang out in his tuk tuk at the gas station across the street. So as a last gasp thing we went over there and he had just pulled up. I recognized his face and some of the other tip-offs from the CBR so was able to go straight up to him and say "Hello, Hen, how are you doing?" It's kind of like when the FBI shows up on your doorstep and you've been trying to dodge them for years, but... they always find you! So we beat him and it felt good to see his face.
Keep hoping and praying for our area. We are and we're hoping there's going to be someone who wants to progress and can see the importance of the gospel. It's a hard work, man, but a good one.
Love you guys
