Below is part of my weekly letter to President Egbert:
Oh what a week. We are doing well here in Actopan, happily chugging along. I was doing really well until we hit Saturday afternoon. Much like the pioneer children, we walked and walked and walked (and walked), but didn't seem to get anywhere. When those days happened with my trainer, I was content to walk and trust her to lead us. Saturday, however, I felt like a failure becuase we weren't able to find anyone (I may or may not have burst into tears). But by the end of the day, I had regained my composure and we ended on a spiritual high note :) Sunday was again stressful for me, but we made it. I just need to take it one day at a time, we are going to be fine. I really have discovered abilities I did not know I had. My teaching has improved exponentially, mostly because I have not choice but to learn! We didn't have nearly as many lessons as I would have liked this week, in part due to cambios, in part due to me trying to figure out how to organize everything and get everything done. But it's a new week and we're going to work our little tails off. Our agenda's are full for this week (thanks to a very willing ward council) and we are going far and wide to preach the word (well, as far as Meje and Colorado and other Pueblos).
Back to your regularly scheduled letter:
So there you have it, a very eventfu, stessful, and altogether WONDERFUL week!
More on Eli:
I'm going to skip a little and get caught up to where we are.
We taught about baptism and recognizing the Holy Ghost. He definitly can feel the Spirit very strongly, but has trouble recognizing that as his answer. He did accept a baptism date for April 19th though! (Mark your calenders folks) We're going to work for that day. The great news is: He came to church on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!! That's a HUGE step for anyone. We didn't get a chance to talk to him afterwards, but we will see him Thursday and talk about how he felt.
I love you all!
