This week has been better and worse. To start off we lost one of our investigators who was gonna get baptized cuz his mom said to stop meeting with the missionaries. also another girl who just graduated from high school wants to get baptized but her mom back in America doesnt want her to. Parents are a pain haha, but it's hard to understand people's situations cuz I'm going thru my comp who tells me what's going on in broken English.
The boy Mone who was like our third wheel kinda got kicked out of our house from the bishop cuz he got in this fight with a man on the street, haha The man's brother heard he was staying with the missionaries in our house and came with a freakin Machette to our door pounding on it asking where is Mone?! Some pretty freaky stuffy, so bishop said for him to leave and just live at home hahah. Nothing happened to us and my comp took care of talking to the man, he saw I was a palangi and was like "ooohh sorry, dont mean to scare, just want Mone"
But yeah to answer some of your questions, we live in like a 25ft by 25ft house that is actually on the church property. There is a small shower and toilet and two beds and then a little table and that's it haha. I'll put pictures up and try to upload a video if I can. On Pdays we just go to a church with a couple of the elders from around, I dont know exactly if they are in our district, area or what? all I know is I just show up, email, and play some volleyball hahah so its all good.
Sundays are very chill, the whole mission is chill, but yesterday we went to church came back and had lunch brought to us around 12:30 and then stayed there til 6. I took that time and studied a lot out of this language book I have. I just hope it sticks. My companion Hefa slept, so i just studied.
As I have stuggled through the week, I have always gone to my Heavenly Father in prayer and then to the scriptures, and EVERYTIME I do, I receive some new insight or thoughts or scriptures that pop out at me and comfort me and give me an answer! I can truly testify about this quote, "when we want to talk to God, we pray, when we want God to talk to us, read the scriptures!" without fail this has worked! I hope all of you are feel the love that Heavenly Father has for each and everyone of you. I rely so heavily upon Him everyday to give me strength to stand and go to work...to the best of my ablity. and thats all He wants from us, He wants our best and to give everything we can, and in turn He will make up for the rest of it! I LOVE you all and pray for you all everyday and night! please continue with your support with your prayers and fasting! I rely so heavily on them and need them a lot. Thank you and I hope to hear from you all soon! Love Taylor
