This change was one week shorter than all the rest due to the change in MTC rules for missionaries speaking their own language so changes are taking place. We got the call last night and I will be receiving a new companion tomorrow. Should be interesting. I am also taking this opportunity as well to deep clean the house and try and always have it be clean (hopefully my next comp will be a cleaner person, that should help a ton too).
Other than that this week was fairly frustrating in terms of the missionary work. We lost a lot of investigators and 2 of our fetches (baptismal dates) for the month of March- more or less fell. I know they will be baptized, but one I am no longer sure. We lost a lot of our investigators and had a really hard time getting into houses this week. I am not sure why but this week was a harder week for the missionary work. Nevertheless do not think I am not happy, nor high in spirits because I am, I am having the best day of my life and am optimistic for this next week, if we do not ever fail or have a rough week we will never fully understand or appreciate when things are going well. We fail at times to have more joy later and understand better the blessings we have had.
Other things that stood out this week include:
- Burger King for dinner (yum!)
- Bed bugs (UGH) trying to get rid of them and I think after today I should be bug free. Sprayed (drenched) the bed in protox (bug killer) and put everything in the wash.
- Had the best breakfast of the mission. On divisions with Elder Wright in Boulevard, we were invited to breakfast at the house of the first counselor to the bishop. He is a chef so we were pretty excited. He worked for Ihop and currently works for Macaroni Grill. We had eggs with onion and tomato (omelet style) but with REAL (American) mozzarella cheese melted on top. We also had fried potatoes seasoned to perfection, and pancakes. The pancakes were heavenly, light, fluffy, and airy. We were also given syrup (real American -maybe Canadian- syrup it was so good) along with peanut butter! I went into a food comma afterwards and my stomach felt like it was back in the states. DELICIOUS!
- Ate lunch twice on Sunday. Got invited to eat lunch with the bishop on Sunday and after church another less active family that we reactivated invited us to lunch too and instead of saying no, because we already had lunch plans, we just decided to double up our lunch. Can never have too much food.
Having the best day of his life,
