So, this week had it's ups and downs. Unfortunately, it appears that there will be no baptism within the next three weeks (which is the end of the transfer); however, the good news is our investigators are slowly progressing. A few have stated that they do not want any more lessons but they do still want to be friends. That is sad, but acceptable. I am certain in the future there will be missionaries who will come in to reap from the harvest here. That is what President Uchtdorf stated, that we missionaries are constantly planting seeds.
Anyway, we have one family that we are working with that is a part member family. We will actually visit them tonight and teach them about the restoration. The father left the church many years ago but now wants to come back and the wife is interested in becoming a member. I have high hopes for them as I do with all of my investigators.
We found another family that is from The Church of God. This church follows many of the Mosaic laws yet they have invited us to come over and hear our message. This will be a difficult lesson since they have asked us to not use the book of mormon in our message. This is extremely different than what we are used to and I pray that it does not just become a "Bible bashing" meeting as that only leads to contention. We will find out what happens on Friday.
Time is flying by really fast, though I am trying to keep my mind focused on the mission. The closer I get to coming home the more anxious I get. I am constantly wondering what it will be like when I get back. I am trying not to think about it though.
When it comes to shaving, no matter what I put on my face it still itches and burns and I get a bunch of zits all over my face. I am even using some stuff to get rid of the zits and it is not working. I really think that I am "allergic" to shaving. It is really getting on my nerves how annoying shaving is.
Anyway that was my week.
I love you guys have a great week.
