You learn a lot of patience in the mission!

Week #60
Hey Everyone!

So this week went alright i guess! We had some good days and some other days that weren't very effective.. Sometimes we have days that just no matter how many people we try to visit or how many people we try to talk to they just don't have time to hear us and we end up just walking around a ton looking for people to teach.. Gotta love the mission!

Anyways this week we started out really well. The transfers meeting was on Tuesday and we didn't have transfers so well be together at least until the 16th of December unless we have an emergency change,, Doubt it though! So instead of going to the meeting we went out working and it went well!

On Friday we had the District meetings and we had a good class on how to get along with our companions! Now that I think about it i haven't really had any trouble with any of my companions and that's one of my goals to get along with all of my comps! I always like the district meetings because all of the missionaries get to see each other!

Anyways on Saturday we were stoked to have a full day of work to try to catch up on some of our goals and it ended up being one of those unproductive days.. We were really pretty bummed but i guess there are a lot of things that we cant control as missionaries! We just have to keep going and to try to do the best we can!! I think i have said it before but you learn a lot of patience in the mission! Its good though! 

On Sunday my companion and i gave talk in sacrament meeting!! I was really pretty nervous because it was my first talk in Spanish that i was going to give to a big group of people other than the talk i gave in the CCM! It went really well though! I recorded it too! I gave a talk about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and what that does for us and a tiny bit on how it applies to keeping the commandments!! It wen well though! It was a huge relief when i was done though! Oh and on top of that the Stake President was there on Sunday too!

All in all this week went pretty well! Not too much interesting that happened this week.. In preparing for that talk i strengthened my testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and i learned a lot about why Jesus Christ requires a lot more than faith for us to be saved! If Jesus Christ didn't require that we keep the commandments we would never become like him! I'm grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and i know that He lives today and guides His church!
