a couple of the boys in the ward felt like they would look good with a badge, they aren't too shabby.
This week was a pretty slow one. We don't have anyone to teach at the moment and Elder Allred has been sick so we didn't get to do as much finding as we needed to. We really need new investigators but we are really struggling to find them. No one is really willing to listen to what we have to say and actually consider it. So that's been a big struggle. The other teams in the Dundee Bingham Ward are on fire, teaching heaps of people, all college kids, their area covers like 3 college campuses. So it would be awesome to find some investigators like that, but unfortunately most of the people in our area are either really old or on the dole. Finding people is hard. Its probably my least favourite aspect of missionary work because it is by far the hardest.Thanks for your email Mum. It was really uplifting and really helped to hear from you, I mean it helps every week, but its especially good lately. It seems like things keep getting harder and harder and when they do it makes hearing from home more and more special I think. I am glad everyone is doing so well. Little Jamesy is going to have the priesthood soon, that's exciting, those are the things I really wish I didn't have to miss.Sometimes I feel like I came out on my mission and was helplessly beat with a baseball bat until I cannot stand by myself. Its a pretty grim picture, but you know, Jesus came to earth to be scourged and nailed to a cross and to suffer so much that he needed to ask if there was another way. When you think about it like that, a baseball bat isn't too bad, and I don't think Satan has any more nails.Elder Tang.
