Week #25

Family and Friend,

Really not a bad week, but slow. We had another baptism of a super good kid named Mathias. He's really smart too.
We lost a lot of our investigators this week. They just all of a sudden up and moved. A lot of them we had set baptism dates with, so that kinda sucks. So now, we are out trying to find some new investigators to teach the gospel too.

The good news this week is that we finally have two families that we have been working with. I am super excited about them. I am crossing my fingers that they will accept a baptism date soon.

We were also able to go out and search for more Inca bones. We found so many more pieces and laid them all out. Baby skulls, clothing pieces, facial bones, crazy crazy, but I love to spend time searching through these ancient ruins.

With the slow week, my mind has wondered way too much this week and I have struggled with questions as to why God lets us struggle. I feel like I've struggled enough here on my mission, especially with the language, and I get super frustrated. I'm tired of struggling all the time. I can't keep my mind focused sometimes and it's hard. Hopefully things will get better. I opened my scriptures and came upon Alma 7 23:24. A great scripture to read at this time.

Oh and I also found out I'm allergic to Mangos. I ate one and I felt like my airways were closing off! lol

That's it for the week!
