You asked how we find investigators, the work is great here. We get like a million new investigators every week. We just talk to them in the street, then we get their directions, which are super bad like from the sport court by the catholic church turn 2 blocks east and one and a half blocks south in a pink house. Sometimes we never find the house, or they give us just one wrong part like we will ask the neighbors who have a pink house and they will be like ohh they live right there in that green house. We just let the spirit lead and when we have time and we see people just sitting in their house we contact it. We don’t do bus contacting a lot that is more like a dare, kinda like ohh you didn’t get all of your contacts yesterday so today you have to contact a bus on the way to St Thomas, that kind of thing. Because for the most part it is feckless.
This week I was able to write a ton of my buddies so that was dope Clark, Jake, Brad and Jackson so I was stoked about that. I was stoked to write you guys too and receive your letters. It’s always good to hear what’s going on in b town and to hear there was snow. I am a little bit jonesy but the mission is sweet. I love it. It is crazy though I’ve never in my life had time go by this fast not even when I got to go ski every day. It’s literally insane. I cannot believe that it is p day again. I’m not going to lie; all the days are just like one jumbled mush in my head that feels like a few hours of time.
I honestly don’t know what to write about except maybe faith. Faith is incredible without faith we have nothing. I don’t know if I already wrote this, but when I was sick I was thinking a lot about what God is trying to teach me here. Why am I sick? All trials are to help us. How is this helping? But then I realized where is my faith? God is teaching me to have faith. My comp always walks super fast and I was super sick with a way high fever and was just like in the tunnel mode kinda where I was just following and trying not to pass out honestly. But then I was like, if I have faith I can keep up with my comp. I started to walk faster but then my comp started to walk even faster and I started to fall behind again. I was like where is my faith? and so I started to walk faster and was able to keep up. We then had to wait for the zl’s for a baptismal interview so we decided to contact a house. We are talking to the lady and my comp passes it to me and I don’t want to do anything but lay down, roll over and die but I was like, ohh I’ll just share a quick testimony and then it will pass it back to him and at least I won’t be talking cause I feel like crap. But then I was like I’ll talk about prayer and receiving answers through prayer. I started talking and after the first sentence the rest wasn’t my words. They came to me as they left my mouth and I taught about prayer. I was just feeling the spirit super strong and it was cool, super cool.
Everything is possible if we just have faith and through the day I just worked on having faith. I thought if I have faith I’ll make it through the day. It was a super cool spiritual day. I felt terrible but it was super cool. Then in like the last hour of the day I lost my faith. My comp was being dumb and we started arguing. I was like, dude you’re being stupid. We were then contacting in the street and I straight up almost pass out. Everything went black and I somehow stayed on my feet looking like a drunk stumbling and running to catch my balance. I was like, bro we have to go home or I’m going to pass out in the street. So we had to go home an hour early. I thought about it and felt like it was all because me and my comp where arguing. It wasn’t big but the spirit is super sensitive and we can lose it super fast. When we lose it we don’t have the help of God to keep pushing on. If we have faith and strive to keep the spirit we can endure all things. That is my little spiritual thought presented in a super long probably super confusing story that made no sense. But that’s chill I tried my best haha. Maybe one day I’ll be good at this letter thing but today is not the day. Mom wanted longer letters and I’ve got time so I’ll just keep a writing.
Peace and love,
Thanks a ton for your letters and emails love ya all
