What I have learned from my companion: how to CLEAN. I´m not talking about a little wish-wash, but deep deep deep clean. She made us clean in places that are even difficult for bugs to get too....very difficult to say the least. I serisouly got deathly ill from all the dust. Nose and eyes were running for dayzzz;
Challenging Experience: The mountains in this area are INSANELY huge. My calfs are about 3 sizes bigger, and waist down you could basically consider me a body builder. My fitbit says that in one day we do about 140 flights of stairs.
Frustrating Experience: We have an investigator who is 85years old. She has been to church numerous times, and loves our visits. But she will not be baptized!! and the reason is.........she won´t let her NUMEROUS boyfriends go. at 85 years old who would have thought....frisky..yeash.
Funny experience (kinda): So I have the hardest time remembering not to put the toilet paper in the toilet....so difficult to break the normality of this! We had lunch in a members house who barely had enough money to feed us, and she lives in a little tiny tiny shack. Anyway, I FORGOT to put the toilet paper in the garbage and totally clogged the toilet (with serisouly the tiniest amount of toiletpaper). ahhh I didn~t know that to do. How could I tell this poor lady that I broke her toilet?? well....i....had to stick my bare hands in there and snatch the toiletpaper out. yeeeeeeaSH. Not my prettiest moment.
Anyways, this week I learned to much more about happiness! I came to realize that happiness is a choice. I chose to wake up happy, stay happy during the day, and go to bed happy. And man was my week truely amazing!! Try it! This week, I invite you to think a little bit more about the importance of God and Jesus christ in your lives. And how we can become closer to them. SIMPLE THINGS!
