Week 21

Wow this week has been a good one! The week started out pretty well, and Tuesday we saw a lot of success contacting some potentials we found the week before. We talked to a lot of people and got some firm-ish return appointments! Yay! Wednesday was a day for humbling and learning. We had a missionary live broadcast, and we got some new and interesting information. Some schedule changes were made so that on P-days we start actual P-day at 8:00 AM from now on! Yay! So not today, but next P-day we start this. We're super excited to have an extra two hours of P-day!

Thursday was fun implementing some of the new ideas and changes we got durning the broadcast on Wednesday, and some more tracting and contacting. Friday we had a branch party later in the evening, and spent part of the day setting up for that. That part went well, and we had a couple investigators come! It was sweet, and music was in fact played. :) Saturday I got super sick and we had to stay inside for the entire day. I slept the entire day, so I'm not sure what happened. :) It's okay though, because now I'm feeling much better.

I've seen this past week that Heavenly Father can help us to know what to say when we trust in Him and look unto Him in every thought, doubting not and fearing not, He will strengthen us and makes us able to do His work. It's been amazing to see the Lord strengthen us even when we ourselves feel inadequate.

I love you all! Have an awesome week!
