Another fantastic week here in the Watac! The week started off really well and we did some good things Monday and Tuesday. A lot of our thoughts were geared toward Wed because we had two major events happening. The first was the opportunity to go to the Temple and to feel of the spirit there. I love to see the Temple and going inside is even better. It's amazing. Then on Wed night we had a ward activity that we were in charge of. It was a success. We had quite a few members there and it could have even been bigger and hopefully next time it will.
Then the rest of the week was back to hard work. Going out and knocking on doors and finding new people to teach because our teaching pool seems to have been getting smaller. We have lots of potential teaching pool but not a lot of solid investigators. The Colvins are doing pretty well. Might not be teaching them as much anymore because commitments haven't been kept but that's alright. Jodie also dropped us so we won't be teaching her again for awhile either which means we have to get out and find new people to teach.
I have really learned the virtue of patience. That when we are patient good things happen. It isn't our timing that matters but it is the Lords and his will in our lives. I know that things don't always happen the way that we thought that they would but they do happen and it brings many blessings to our lives.
Last night we got to go the Jacksons and cut their sons hair. I have never done it before but it's pretty safe to say that I am the best stylist around. (; I will attach pictures for the proof. Just kidding. It was a struggle but it was a lot of fun. One of many things that I have started to learn how to do in the "real world".
I love you all so much and hope that you have a great week!
