This week has been pretty rough for me. I've had a wicked, nasty cold all week. This is the first time in a long time that I can remember losing my voice. I couldn't even talk all day yesterday. So you can imagine how easy it is to do missionary work when you don't even have a voice. Pretty frustrating. But it gave E. Burnett ample opportunity to talk and teach more.
Well, when it rains it pours, and on top of being sick, we've had a family that we've been working with drop us. So this week has been a little difficult that way as well. To be honest, I've been pretty frustrated lately. But I keep my head up and keep working. One thing I've learned on my mission is that whining does not accomplish a thing! I don't want to do it, and I sure don't want to hear it! So I'm not going to dwell on any of the negatives this week.
We've had some positive experiences teaching some less-active members. There's really a ton of potential in this area. So many of the less-active members we've contacted are just waiting for the help to come back into activity. Also, on Saturday, we were able to help a nonmember in our area to move into her apartment. She is related to a member family in another ward in Winnipeg. Apparently as part of the deal for us helping, she has to listen to us. She they're going to call us and set up an appointment. She seemed like she wasn't actually being drug into it; however, she did inform us that she is an unlikely convert. Very nice lady. We'll see what happens.
Well, other than me trying to teach without a voice, that's about all that I've got for today. I love you all, and I will email on Tuesday next week....I think. We have zone conference on Monday. Have a great week!
