Every good thing is usually accompanied by a bad thing

This week has been one that has really tested me. There have been some really good things happen and then some less than good things happen. For starters Ammaron, our ward mission leader really connected with Leeza and offered to swing by and help with what ever she needed help with. Funny thing though, after the visit I was about to jump in to Ammaron's car and I realized that I forgot my bag so I rushed in and got it. little did I realize that as I was walking back out Ammaron hid behind the mail box and scared the living daylights out of me. 😂

We set up a lot of appointments but the majority of them fell through or just didn't go the best. Because of it I was thinking alot and started pondering on why I am really out on a mission. This lasted several days and I eventually came to the conclusion that initally I came out for several reasons, 1) thats what was expected of me 2) I wanted to fix myself. The one thing that gives me solace is that, that's not why I am currently out. I'm out to help other come to Christ as I have. I love this gospel and I love teaching it! There is nothing that I would trade it for.

Leeza actually ended up dropping us for now. I just hope she decides to get back into it soon.

Sorry for the short email today but please pray for Leeza. I love you and cant wait to see what this next week brings!
