This week has been really boring and I don't know why. We really spent almost the whole week in the streets because all of our appointments fell through. That really tested my patience. It is something I really need to work on, but I hate having appointments fall through. On Thursday we only taught one lesson the whole day because everywhere we went either no one was home or they were busy. That never would have happened in my last area. We have a good amount of baptism dates right now and they should all come through soon. I hope that we will have 6 within this next month. I love being a missionary in this work. I'm learning things that I would never learn at home. And I'm getting so many life experiences everyday. I can testify with all of my heart that Christ lives and he loves us all very much and he is here to help us when we feel afflicted.

This week was a very good week for teaching and it was interesting. Our mission had some emergency changes this week and as a result my comp became DL. I'm still worried whats going to happen to this district. He was freaking out when we found out. Teaching wise we got a lot done. By tonight we should have 6 baptism dates for the month of February. One of the guys is a minister from another church whose wife is a member. He believes in the Book of Mormon and preaches with it, but he doesn't want to give up being a minister in his church. I think it would be really exciting if we can get him to commit to baptism tonight!

heard a story from another Elder who said that he once poured alcohol on his name tag and lit it on fire to take some cool fotos and he said it made it look super cool. I thought that I should try that too. I realized that I only have hand sanitizer, so I used that to make the fire, but then it just began to melt my name tag. Now the letters on "ELDER" are all messed up. I definitely let the dumb 19 year old come out of me.

Well I know with all my heart that this church is true. It is the only church we can receive salvation and that has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love bringing people to the light of the truth.
