Well we had transfers today but I stayed in my area and my companion got sent to another area. I am still serving here in the city and I received ANOTHER NEW COMPANION. Today is his first day in the mission. He is from Mexico and he seems like a good guy. This will be my 7th transfer in a row as a trainer. Its not the easiest thing I have ever done, but I am learning more and more every single day.
We are working with some great investigators right now who are really close to being baptized. The people here are great and are very accepting of the gospel. Sure there will always be those people who shut you down, slam the door in your face, or give you a few unpleasant words, but they dont slow us down. The Lord blesses us every single day and helps us stay focused on the work.
Its been raining every day here, and its not going to stop for the next couple of months so I am looking forward to that, but the people feel bad leaving us out on the street in the rain so they usually let us in! There are positives to everything.
A lot of times when we are passing through trials Satan likes to highlight all of the bad things that are going on around us. We forget about all the blessings that we have been given and focus on all the bad. The trick to getting through our trials is rocognizing how blessed we are. I can promise each and every one of you that there are more good things going on around you than bad. Its your decision to choose which things you want to focus on. If you want to be happy, I invite all of you to focus on the good, and allow the bad to take itself out of our lives.
I love you all and thank you for all of your love and support! Have a great week!
