It's been a hard couple of weeks. I've been robbed. I've gone to the ER (don't worry, I only had my fingernail ripped out). I'm going in for blood tests to see if I've contracted some creepy-sounding African parasite. . .
Now the good news! We went from 30 people in sacrament meeting to 60. We're receiving more referrals than ever. We went from 0 people on date from baptism two weeks ago to 4 on date. Many, many reactivated less active members of the branch. I was given an African name (Tshepo-trust). I've developed a closer bond with my Savior than ever before in my life. And I love it all! The whole picture, bad and good, is highly addictive and is just plain fun!!
The mission is the greatest. It is the worst. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. But I definitely wouldn't want my best friend to miss out on the experience.
Please just keep me in your prayers. I'm going to need it. I love you all so much!!
