i don't have time to think about you guys!

haha this week has been hard..  but that's how it is. one of my comps didn't understand the importance of inviting to a baptism EVERY lesson. she didn't get why.. i tried explaining it to her and she said that if the spirit didn't tell her to then she wouldn't do it.. i told her that the spirit didn't have to tell her to do her job and we should be fearless and bold but not overbearing. because when we don't invite to a baptism we are backing up the progress of the investigator.. once we were in a lesson and i felt that i should invite to a date in specific.. it was the second lesson.. so i was like alright i'll do it! so i started doing it and my companion nudged me.. she was thinking "are you crazy!" and he accepted! and is progressing like crazy.. we walked out and i told her... we should invite to a baptism date no longer than the second lesson... and she insisted we would lose investigators that day but i explained that its better to lose them and not waste our time. if we lose them for inviting them to a baptism then they don't wanna repent and aren't going to progress and we can leave them and find people who will progress>!! its all one big cycle! BUT... i love missionary work!! i remember at the beginning of my mission i used to be a little scared  of what everyone would think. but i've learned that there is absolutely no shame in being a disciple of christ and there is no shame in helping others come unto christ for their salvation! i loveeee this church soo much. its the bomb..

hahaha honestly i keep soooo busy with my calling that i don't have time to think about you guys! just at night when i'm laying in bed.hahaa dad i would honestly be fine with it if mom brought me a container to the airport full of potato soup for me to eat until lana gets there.. loll  i hope they can change lana's flights but i doubt it... tell pres marks that he can release us on the 9th at whatever time..... but i just threw out everything that i won't be bringing home... just a few souvenirs and some clothes from here that i will wear at home. its not much. well i love you all so much! be good and we will talk next week! hard to believe that you will only be receiving 4 more emails from me and lana!! love u!!
