Nuevo compa y es latino!
Well i am finally with a mexican comp. He is super cool and finally i am going to be able to only talk spanish... WOOOOOOO!!!!
This week was finally just pure work becuase my comp is done with his training. THis one.i dont have to sit in the house for another hour going through the training matereal with him. We were able to complete and pass our goals because i am not the only one teaching the lesson anymore. SWEEEEED. Anyway. It has been raining more this week and soibasically just gaveup on trying to stay dry. Its rare that we arent walking through rivers. My shoes are real soggy. Poor things. Oh well.
Anyway. We had a really powerful lesson this week, and it sota made me mad. its weird. Let me explain.
So we have had this investigator for maybe 3 weeks now and we havebeen teaching him constantly becuase we are lacking new people to teach. Anyway so we went to teach him and he started saying he agrees to everything. He knows its all true but he hasnt prayed yet. Thats the frustrating part... This area is so dry and we were about to drop himbutall of a sudden hebelieves it all and loves going to church but hasnt prayed and doesnt want to get baptized... #thestruggleisreal
I am stoked to be able to teach full time again and it is making my life.
Stay sane so your work isnt in vain. Thats the lesson being learned right now. Our ways of staing sane are making paper airplanes (thanks anderson fam) and seeing whose will fly further in the torrential rain. Also the city drainage systemgot plugged up and so we had a small lake in our lower story of our house. A good 5 inches and with that went the power just barely coming back on yesterday again #thestruggleisreal
