glad to hear all is well for the most part. thats to bad about mount sac. guess it wasnt the one. at least some good comes out of your bosses surgery though haha. my new comps name is elder flint. hes a pretty cool dude, so everything is going smooth. idk how well our teaching has come together yet but we havent had any problems and have been getting things done. we have a few more investigators now and another baptismal date. we'll see if its solid or not soon. my teaching skills are whatever. haha. idk what great is but i think i do ok. i cant really tell for myself. you'll have to ask someone who knows ha. i keep up with my new comp just fine thanks. haha we are on the same page so its good. we're both trying to be obedient and trying to do work. last week we mapped out all of the inactives on a big map so we can get them all seen inbetween appointments and tracting. there was 165 of them so it took some time to map and number them but it should make visiting them much more productive cause we can see whos close to where were going and visit a bunch at one time. we did have a cold spell for awhile but its picking back up to warm. the weather has been nice on and off. its cold then warm then cold. its pretty spaztic. i got a new jacket at an auction for 15 bucks. so that was nice. haha we go to pec and ward council. ward council im not sure why but we go do rescueing splits after pec. we just visit whoever seems like they could use some extra attention or inactives. its kinda cool. our new bishop is allll about missionary work so its good. as for the new testament. i'm reading it too. its freaking good. i enjoy it a lot. the wisdom in Christ simplicity is way dope. to me anyways. ive been marking everytime the people are astonished by his doctrine too. its a lot. haha. i'm just trying to figure out how to do it too. i dont really know how to motivate myself to be honest. if im feeling lazy. i just have to get up and go. motivation usually comes through more work. once i talk to someone its usually back up. its just sitting around that makes it worse. i havent been motivated for a few weeks till my comp change. not cause my comp before was bad cause he was awesome. we were both just ready for a change. so theres another motivator. change. find some new scenery or a new way to do it. monotamy is a motivation killer in my book. to be honest too. i dont really care when we dont have anyone to teach as long as we work. haha. that might sound bad, but as long as im trying it doesnt bother me at all. i'm cool with planting seeds. theres really no point in getting down about crap like things not working out with people. its there loss. i just feel bad for them. my struggles come from others that i have to work with mostly. not even the missionaries anymore. haha. or the ward members. but i'll deal with those when the time comes. i havent got to eat anything fun lately but tonight we are having crawfish. i havent had that before so it should be good. i hear its a messy dinner, which means fun i guess? and the car is very very nice haha. especially cause we have a lot of miles. so we can go see people we normally wouldnt be able to. so all and all its been a good week, worked pretty well, helped some people. it was cool. work hard people. especially the little ones. john 7:16-17 its kinda my go to now days. its the only way ive gotten a testimony so i hold onto it haha. love you all. have a good week.
