23 July 2012

good week this week! im pretty worn out, and we taught more lessons than we did the week before, and we started teaching a few new people! all signs that we had a good week! also good: no trips to the ER in the last week or so! pdays not over yet but we're gonna do our best to stay away :)

we started teaching a family of 5. the husband is a coworker of one of the members of our ward. i think that the lesson went well. we taught them all about the book of mormon and they promised to read before we came back next time. im a little worried that they are just taking lessons as a polite gesture to their friend, but we'll see. they are a pretty cool family. their ten year old son is a nut. he was belly dancing for us and we were trading knock knock jokes pretty funny!

the ward is getting more and more excited about missionary work i think. we're getting to know everybody pretty quickly, and i think for the most part people like us lol. people are really excited for the monthly ward social we are starting, so hopefully that goes off without a hitch. im a little worried we're going to have too many people and it'll turn into chaos. we'll see.

as i near in on my bday/year mark ive been reflecting a lot on my mission. lots has happened! but there are still lots of things i want to happen. lots of goals i have yet to accomplish. if my mission were to end today i would be far from satisfied. luckily it doesnt end today. i feel like im just hitting my groove!

that said, i miss all of you and being home and being at school! but soon enough i will be back :) keep sending your encouragement! its much appreciated. as is giving me an update so i know what youve been up to :) be safe. and nice!
