Next item of business: I would just like to start off by clearing up a myth...Syd...remember when we were talking about missions a while back and we were saying that a mission is like every day being a Sunday? Well this week I was having a real good laugh that we EVER thought that! haha Not only is Sunday the busiest day of the whole week, but every single day we are working our tails off! haha Not leisurely going to church, reading the scriptures, la la la...we are breaking a sweat as we literally run from one meeting to another! I can guarantee (my spelling has gotten horrible!) that every single person in this city thinks that Mormon missionaries are the most spaztic and busy people on the planet! Haha but it's a good thing! Shows them that we're in demand :) Every night this week I flopped into my bed with absolutely no energy left! And I love it! The fact that I use every ounce of energy I have throughout the day is so rewarding!
This week, we had a really neat experience with a gypsy family! We ran into them on our way home after a long day of marvelous work! The thing that made it so amazing was how happy and loving they were! We had just finished a lesson with a lady who was really sad...(the gospel will make her happy! so i'm glad that we're teaching her), but the atmosphere of the lesson was a little depressing simply because she had a sad attitude. But with this gypsy family, they were SO joyful! They eminated joy and it not only made me realize that families really are a gift from Heavenly Father, but that attitude is everything! After we left them to go on our way (after receiving their contact info and setting up with them of course!), we were both just filled with joy because they were so happy because THEY were so happy! It made me realize that my attitude effects others, too: companions, members, investigators, and heck! even people on the street!!
I think I've said this in a previous email, but something I realized again this week was that sometimes that is a tablespoon and sometimes it's a gallon. But as long as we're trying our best every day, the Lord will be pleased with my work.
