15 October 2012
the weather is now beautiful. i dont know how long it will last but its been great for the last week. two days were super rainy and a little chilly so i wore a sweater :) nothing is better than a sweater day! it actually felt like Fall!!!!!! right now its about 82, but compared to 106 thats awesome!
we finally found some Samoans to teach! we went and visited them on saturday. they are a younger couple with 3 kids and they basically have realized that they want to raise their kids in a church. we told them about ours and they were excited! but they told us they wanted to go to the white ward, not the samoan ward! we were/are very upset. we havent told the elders over the white ward yet. we're hoping if we go back and teach one more time we can convince them to come out to the samoan ward.
we have a couple other leads, but nothing too outstanding.
elder weaver and i are getting along well. im hoping i get transferred in a couple weeks though. i miss teaching people!!! and if i dont get transferred in a couple weeks then that means i'll have to stay here for 3 more months and i really dont want that. we'll see what happens. maybe there is a reason im supposed to stay here 3 more months.
i found this quote this week, and enjoyed it all week because it went along with our weather :)
"some people feel the rain, others just get wet"
i've been thinking if i have been just "getting wet" or if i've been "feeling" what God is giving me. my situation, missionary work wise, stinks. we have no one to teach. but ive realized i have at least 2 weeks here, in my current situation to to get better. i might have 3 months here to get better (i hope not lol) but i've recommitted myself to being optimistic about the "rain" of my current situation and to learning whatever it is im supposed to be learning.
idk if that helps any of you, but it's helped me.
