A Week in the Life of a Missionary . . .

September 28, 2014

Hello Everyone!!!

Well, this week was CRAZY!!!

Monday- PDay consisting of a barbecue and zone activity at Yigo. Had to wake up super early to go pick up trainers as this week is transfer week.

Tuesday- More meetings!! Took the trainers around with us and we did splits to cover as much of our area as possible. Met with tons of Philipinos and knocked on probably 100 different doors, and only got maybe 5 potential investigators. Such is the life!!

Wednesday- Dropped trainers off to meet with President and then ran missionaries around to the doctors and all that. Did more tracting again and hopefully find some more potential as a result.

Thursday- TRANSFERS!!! Found out that I'm still in Harmon and serving as Zone Leader with Elder Afualo, and after that, went and met the new trainees. Saw Sister Baum, who is going to be serving here in Guam. Took them around after and let them teach. Tried to go see Ethan and Demitrah but there wasn't enough time.

Friday- Well, after a long week, finially able to get some real teaching in. Afualo and I have been doing splits so as to cover our whole area, and it's been paying off. We found tons of new investigators and taught tons of lessons. We also went and met with Jimmy and his family (Ethan and Demitrah) and had one of the most humbling experiences of my mission. We had a family home evening set up with them, but because of the trainers and transfers, we were not able to follow through with it and had no number to call and reschedule. When we met with them, they straight up told us that they thought that we had abandoned them. Darn right broke my heart, because I absolutely love this family, so we had a really good meeting about repentance and the spirit was so strong. We have another FHE set up for tonight.

Saturday- No baptisms for us, just went out teaching. Had some pretty good lessons, also came and attended the Family History Fair that the Church put on for the whole island of GUam, that was cool to come and learn about Family History.

Sunday-- Church, Afualo wasn't feeling too well, found out the schedule and agenda for Zone Conference this Tuesday, and tried to go find some "investigators" that say they want to meet, but are never weher they say they'll be when they say they'll be there. Zone did super good, taught a lot of lessons and had quite a few less actives reactivated.

That's my week!! Hopefully this finds everyone doing well and loving life!!

Ai tong ngenikemi meinisin!!
