Well I sure hope that you get lots done, but I will be there to help if you need it when I get home.
Well this week was really hard but filled with miracles. We just were not having a good time finding people and we had to let a few people go because they were not progressing. It was pretty tough on the soul. However, we fasted and that was awesome because on Sunday we had 3 people get to church that we were not expecting. They are now progressing really, really well to be baptized in September! It really brought up my spirits and we were able to bring those miracles also to the zone!
This is the first week in that we are really happy because almost all of the zone had more than 3 people in church. I have not seen those types of dats here in Tetzu in a long, long time. At least as long I have been here... I finally feel like I am getting the swing of things as a Zone Leader and actually feel that I am helping people. So yay!
Other than that it was a pretty basic week with just the weather getting really, really cold.... jajaja I am so not used to this and it is super weird to be walking around in a heavy sweater in August so yeah... It is way better than other parts of the mission that are sitting above 100 right now jajaja.
The assistants are going to be in divisions with us tonight and tomorrow so I am really excited to learn something special from them and help out my own area so I can have more time to help out the area of my missionaries. We are going to do plenty of divisions ourselves to keep helping the zone and I am excited because I will be with Elder Winters. He is a new gringo in the zone. I will help him get used to contacting and then doing super awesome things as a missionary in the future.
That is pretty much it though so pretty basic really hahaha.
