Elder Joseph Budge

The weeks are flying by and staying focused

Hey people this week was great. This week we got to help this navy guy translate. He thought we were great. He was so thankful for our service.

We had a bunch of lessons again and got to watch General Conference, and I watched half of it in Japanese. I didn’t get a whole lot out of the Japanese section, but it was good. We got to have a less active member come to Conference and a new member that just moved in. He (the new member) lives very close to us, and we are trying to get him to go on a mission. We are also trying to get a couple of other YSA (young single adults) people to go on missions. I dont know if it will work, but we will try.

The lessons we have had this week were good. They were with the same people we've been meeting with and a less active. We had good lessons with them and got to understand them. I dont know if they will get baptized right away, but we will see what happens. Their hearts are going in the right way, but their parents and desire aren’t there yet. I’m trying my best and so is my companion.

These weeks are getting faster and faster. I’m still tired and all, but I cant give up. If I do, I know things will go bad for me. I have interviews this week with my president. Anyways, I’m trying to go on a diet, and when I say that I mean like no more pop and cut down on some snacks. It's not working out quite how I want it to. But I will keep trying.

That is about it for the week. Thanks for the emails, and I hope you enjoy my emails.
