this is flying by!! hollay! okay so this week started really good! we found tons of new investigators. probably like 10. but the problem is they never remember that we have freaking appointments. so when we go back they never are there.. it is so frustrating...i guess one lesson i learned this week is this isn't my time out here and things aren't going to work out on my time! this is the lords time and he will choose how he wants it to work out...we just need to press on with faith. we have like 25 investigators now and only like 3 or 4 are actually home at times we can go find them. its super difficult but i know it will get better! a little motto i kinda took for my mission that i learned while in the mtc is ´´love them today, they might listen tomorrow"
i know if i show that i truly care about them and love them every single day and want to help them they will listen eventually! i truly do love it more and more every single week! we started teaching this one lady who is really excited about learning the gospel. one of my favorite things to do now is share my testimony with people and promise them blessings. its crazy to look back at things and think wow that happened for a reason. such as the other day we ran into a guy who spoke pretty good english. thought nothing of it and went on our way. we didn't talk to him much. but then yesterday we are walking down a random road and all of the sudden there he is again. i know for a fact we were there at the right time and the right place to set up another visit with him. i am super excited!
every thursday we play soccer with the kids in the ward but i always bring a basketball haha they love watching me dunk it haha its like the coolest thing ever. we also have a guy in our area who plays professional ball down here and he goes nuts when i dunk it hahahah...way funny!
haha its the most insane thing ever soo i love you guys and miss you
talk to you next week which seems like two days away haha!
love elder harding!!
