June 8th

Hey yall!

What a week its been! Holy smokes! Its been hot all week. I've heard that its been hot back home too but this humidity stuff kills! It feels like I walk into an oven everytime I walk outside! Lets just say that I've been workin on my missionary tan all week :) On Wednesday it got up to 103 I think. The rest of the week it was in the mid to high 90's. I've probably shed a few pounds this week which is good. I can definetly afford that,haha.
Its been crazy covering two areas and trying to switch off every other day. But fortunately we've had success as a trio. This week has been good and bad. We had a lot of our appointments fall through, but theres nothing new there. We did find some really cool new people to teach though. Tracting in the hot sun works (sometimes)! We found this really cool dude named Cross and he took a BOM and accepted a return appointment for this Wednesday. Hopefully he's there and willing to learn!
This week I have been studying in Alma 29 about missionary work. I think that vs. 9 is my favorite! It talks about how we need not glory in ourselves but in what the Lord has commanded us to do. Then Alma says this. "Yea and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be and instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul unto repentance, and this is my joy." We should receive our joy from helping others build their faith and helping them come closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Our Father in Heaven gets his joy from seeing us happy! So we must always be on the lookout for missionary opportunities! Love yall and have a great week!!
