4 Months out

Well time flies I have been out for 4 months now.  It was a crazy week and it was a roller coaster of emotions.....
   Monday we went hunted down biking stuff because we are short on miles so we are gonna bike around Sidney.  It will be fun!  We had dinner with a member and they are always entertaining.  Then we went to clean a less actives home we felt kinda gross again but oh well.
  Tuesday we saw our investigator..  We don't know what to do he is slow and doesn't really understand and we don't know if he ever will so we are praying.  Basically all our appointments fell through so we tried people before dinner.  We heard this families conversion story it is super cute and awesome love them stories.  Then we saw a recent convert but awkward the other sisters came into town that day and were there when we got there.....  It was awkward and we felt like we didn't have an area....  We went home afterwards and it was hard sister D'Vaz went with a member that night who did tell her we are doing an awesome job and to not meet with the people who are attached to these sisters but its hard...  We also biked and it kinda hurt not good seats haha
   Wednesday President called.  He knew we were having a hard time so he asked us to go out with the other sisters we did after freaking out for a while because we wanted our area back.  One sister defended us very well but the other one didn't like what we were doing possibly dropping some people....  It felt like we were just hanging out all day.  It sucked we went to dinner at an investigators and we didn't really get to talk with them either..  We had ice cream 3 times this day as well....but pres did say so
     Thursday we had breakfast with a member super good food.  We saw our investigator before going on exchanges.  I stayed here with sister Wells and sister D'Vaz went to Williston.  Sister Johnson came here with us.  We saw a less active who told us about seeing spirits very interesting conversation well not really a convo I guess..  We just sat there mostly.  We tried some potentials no one answered so we walked around Sidney and offered our help to a less active.
  Friday we went and helped the less active move stuff out of one room into another so someone could come stay with her.  Then we had to weekly plan.. also crazy mission life possibility we get high at our weekly Friday dinner appointment...  But we are all good just tired afterwards.  Our lesson with them was awesome he actually shared a message with us and he said he loves having us over it was awesome!!  Oh we also went to a baptism sister D'Vaz talked and we said prayer but it was a lot of fun.
     Saturday we saw some people but our lessons didn't go very well.  We ended up weekly planning again then having dinner and planning a lesson for sunday school.
    Sunday church was so good.  I need the Lord so much.  We had lunch and tried to see people which was hard since it was fathers day and we feel bad interrupting peoples time together.  We saw a less active family and it was like the best lesson ever.  We talked a lot about food storage but its more like life storage cause you need more than just food you need soap and that stuff.  Crazy and now I feel the need to build up some life storage but I'm on a mission and broke plus not a lot of room for all of that...

   Well I have had a tough week.  I have felt very unworthy and a horrible missionary but I know the Lord needs me and he is cutting me down to build me up and make me ten times stronger.  I know that as we turn our hearts toward God and follow Jesus Christ we can be made strong.  I am so grateful to be able to repent because I am not prefect and we all need Jesus.  Life can be very difficult and it may seem that everyone is against you but the Lord is next to you walking beside you always

I love you all have a fabulous week
