Mom, you certainly speak words of wisdom. I know what you say to be true mother. Us missionaries can be fantastic. We can speak to hundreds of people about the Gospel, but we are still missionaries. Who are the people going to listen most to? Their friends who they trust and see have lives full of good works. We have been having many difficulties with that. We will find many new investigators but so many of them will quickly fall to the way side without an extra support. Whether it be from lies from family and friends, or the lack of will power to overcome Satan and read and pray and go to church. While when they have someone to help them do these things. To overcome Satan--they are much more easily able to overcome their challenges and come to the truth. I am learning a lot about how to be a better missionary and disciple of Christ. Yesterday i was extremely overwhelmed. We have been working so hard and not seeing as much fruits as we were hoping for. We had one investigator in church. Prayer has power.
Lots of love!
