It's Been A Week!

Well this week was really slow. We were going to get our car on Thursday but because of other damage that was on the car from previous missionaries, the vehicle coordinator had them keep the car for an undetermined amount of time. So pretty much right now we are stuck on our bikes and within 4 miles of our apartment. It is getting really annoying because we are running out of people to go see. We also need to be in our apartment by like 7-7:30 because it gets dark and the streets here are not lit and it can be dangerous for us to be out vary long or far away on our bikes. I hope that we get our car sometime this week.

Lukas is doing great but his mom is having some concerns about Lukas' older brother who is already a member going on a mission. We weren't able to meet with them last week.

Leah is also doing well, she attends seminary every morning at 6 am and she also brought a friend!

We haven't seen the Phillip family as they have been out of town.

The amount of time that we have spent inside the apartment has allowed me to once more on my purpose as a missionary and how I can become better. Now I know that because y'all love me you are gonna say that I am a really great missionary but I am here to tell you that I have many shortcomings. I strive to work through them and I know that I will. This week I have felt all sort of emotions and I am not really sure why. Ups and downs, frustrations and excitements. But that is how life is sometimes. We don't know why we are going through the things that we are going through. I can't even tell you what will happen or why or any of it. However, we are to walk by faith and not by sight. Sometimes you need to trust in Him even if you cannot feel His presence; He is there. I know it is difficult, I think I am in the midst of on of those times, but I have faith that all things will turn out for my good and for your good. I can promise you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that everything that happens in this life refines us to become the person that our Heavenly Father wants us to become. Now I also know that there are things that happen to us that other people do to us. Maybe you were in an accident or maybe there was a financial fraud of some sort etc.; it will turn out for your good. I can promise that. If there is one things I can promise it is that.

I am sorry but honestly this last week didn't really have anything to really write home about. I am alive and well. I have mixed feelings about transfers. I kinda want to leave and go to another area but at the same time I feel like this area is so close to being very fruitful.

I love you all, Keep the Faith and Hurrah for Israel!

Love, your missionary son and brother, Elder Jefferies
