Okay, I'm on a terrible keybard where the o and l don't always work, so please forgive the more than likely common misspellings :)

I first want to talk about the pro's and con's of not knowing the language.
Pro- When people are yelling at you, they're easy to ignore, you don't know what they're saying anyways.
Con- When visiting an investigator who serves you food that you have no idea what it even is and it tastes disgusting, you're told to eat more... and more...and more... they talk to your companion and tell you to eat. Definitely a con haha
Pro- It's really easy to make people laugh when you sound like a 5 year old and people can be very patient with you and love you for your efforts.
Con- Some people hate how you sound like a 5 year old and just ignore you haha
Pro- Being so obviously American in how you speak can get you into people's homes to teach them, they like America :)
Con- I don't know what's going on about 80% of the time.
Pro- I'm learning another language, that's pretty cool I think :)

This last week I was pretty sick, that was rough. But! I was still happy and loving the work, that was a blessing. Hurray for the Lord supporting us in trials!
Let's see, oh boy, time blurs, I can't even remember what happened this last week...
We got some new awesome investigators, as in awesome, so golden and so ready for the gospel, I'm so excited to see how they are blessed with the gospel.
Okay, I think I'm just going to accept the fact that I don't have much to say this week haha But know that everyday we strive to live God's commandments and live according to His will, we get so much closer to Him and are blessed with so much happiness. This is my testimony and I see it every single day in my life and in others. No matter how hard life gets, there is always peace and happiness to be found.
