Enjoying Lots of Service

So this week has been a good week and it has been a long one, too. We have been doing lots of service, which kinda gets me all confused about which day it is. This next week we have a really cool service project we are doing. We are helping one of the members fall his big tree in his yard. That should be fun.

We found this guy about two weeks ago named Oscar. He is a way cool guy and he was semi interested the first time he talked to us, but the next time we came over he was way interested. He even stopped watching the Olympics to come and talk to us. It was great to see how the Spirit works. He told us he wanted to know how to have eternal life and he would do anything for it. That was kinda his big question "how do I get eternal life with my family?" It’s cool that we found him on the street as we were just talking to everyone.   I have found that is the key to finding people; it is just doing what you can by talking to everyone you see.

Simple Things Change Lives

It has been a super good week this week, lots of meetings and training. The good news was I was able to spend a couple of the really hot days inside. The bad news is my head is about to explode with information. There is so much you have to do as a missionary and all the stuff that comes with it is crazy and its 100% of the time, so there is no breaks. But it is great and so much fun. It is awesome to be able to see the change in people’s lives because of the simple things that we teach them.

So there is this one guy that we are teaching and he is one of those guys who wants to know everything. We tried to set a baptismal date for him for August or September and he wanted it instead in January or February of next year. So now, we keep visiting him and telling him he is ready whenever. So that has been fun. If you have any ideas let me know.
