this week man. this week felt really long and really short at the same time. like every week i guess.
so this week we've been really focusing on helping our progressing investigators to progress. like. visiting them once every day or so and trying to help them see the importance of coming to church and praying and such. some people are more ready to learn than others.
speaking of. there was this one papa in my area. he's really great. so at some point or another in almost every teaching experience. missionaries will ask. 'do you have any questions? are you confused about anything we've taught?' or something like that. so this papa. had come up with some questions. that apparently no missionary had answered. all in all they made me kinda mad cuz the first question he asked was basically a bible trivia question. like. 'do you really know every single little thing in the bible...???' and then the second one didn't have a answer. and i tried to tell him that. 'We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that [H]e will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.' (article of faith #9) and that the question he had god hasn't revealed a answer yet. but he didn't accept that... and then the 3rd question had a answer based in modern revelation from joseph smith and i tried to explain that and he said. 'yeah! joseph smith was a prophet! he should have all the answers! where's ALL THE ANSWERS' it was a fun lesson but. not the best spiritually speaking.
we're tryin our best to do all the work that this area needs to have done. it's a lot a lot. and there's no way we can do it all. but! we can try! it's great. so much work.
also in other news. i won't be sending a email for the next couple weeks cuz im going to..... wait for it...... GAUA it's gonna be freakin amazing. so bush. so great. but no internet. sorries friends. staytuned for when we get back!
that's all for now.
