this week felt really long but in the end, looking back it was a p dope week.
so the branch that im serving in is kinda getting moved, like the epicenter of the church used to be in a village called tanavoli(really far from downtown luganville) to the new epicenter berol! (only kinda far from town) and because of that we've been doing a lot of establish-a-branch work. it's cool though. all the members are really excited that they don't have to wait for a truck that will maybe come to take them to sacrament! they can just walk to berol!
all our progressing investigators are really busy and hard to get a hold of so we're doing a lot of finding and contacting. which is met with lukewarm success. some people are like. *whispering to their family member but i can still hear them* just say yes so they'll go away... while others are like. yeah i've seen you around a time or two! yeah! i wanna know more! it's super great. on sunday we contacted a family of 7 and it was a really great lesson and the mom is good friends with a member mama so. hoping and praying that they follow through on their commitments to read and pray.
something i've learned this week is... don't refuse food. so. guess whos gonna be nice and plump. in 18 more months. this guy. it's ok. we've been doing a lot of service lately. helping people carry fire wood from the bush. helping cut firewood at their house. help get water from the spring(20 mins from the village) to their house. as a result, i've been sleeping really well at night cuz im really tired. missionary work! we've had some setbacks this week. some previously progressing investigators we now have to drop cuz... but it's all good! keep going!
