Well I got zero time again this week. I was caught up doing some other stuff with a member today, like all day. I am feeling back to normal pretty much, thanks to your love and prayers!
This week was a little rough/tiring! My companion went back into the hospital again. Looks like he is still sick. L Dangit.
But this week we did have a few lessons. One of which we invited one of our investigators to be baptized. He didn’t quite accept it yet! The only opposition was to how fast the date was. He promised us he would go home and personally pray about it. Pray he accepts! I love this man to death. He is so humble and ready to join the church.
I started working out again though. First time in over an entire month! I got freaking skinny so figured it was time to put some meat back on after being sick. Leggooo!!
Tuesday was my companion’s birthday. The big 21! He felt REALLY sick that day. It was bad. Being the greatest missionary companion ever I decided to make him breakfast in bed on his big day. Made some toast and brought him yogurt. His favorites! (considering it’s the only thing he can really eat at the moment haha).
But One special thing that happened that day was amazing. He said" It’s my birthday, lets at least go out for a little bit" So we stocked up with our good ole stack of book of Mormons and headed out for a space of two hours. We prayed earnestly and fervently for strength to endure the time we were out considering my companion was basically dying. Poor guy!
And never in my life have I have ever hurt so badly in the face! Straight smile from ear to ear during that whole two hours sharing the feeling of my heart about the Book of Mormon and what I know to be true. In fact, we stopped a young girl and she about fell over seeing our smiles when we handed her a book of Mormon. We trekked a long stopping EVERYONE we saw. And by the end of the two hours, we placed 11 book of Mormons into the hands of the people on the streets. Heavenly Father truly helped us out during that time. I can say from the heart that I left everything and gave it my all in those two hours & especially my companion! Definitely a memorable experience for the both of us, especially since it was on his birthday!
Pray for my companion. I love him so much. He is a brother to me and seeing him the way he is, is the last thing I want for him. We do feel your prayers and appreciate it so much!
I’d love to hear from all of you people too! Hearing about how y’all are doing! Please email me!
Much love to you all. Know that the lord loves you and that you are never alone in anything you go through, he is ALWAYS there.
Till next week and hopefully when I have more time! And sorry no pics...
