He Smells Freakin Amazing (week #34)

This week has been insaaaaane....Yeah I had to sing a solo..the zone leaders made sure I did it ALONE...I sang Lead, Kindly Light." Everyone says it was good so like...I guess it went well? 

I'm not really sure what M's deal is. He's pretty much given up and we obviously aren't going anywhere without a member, so we're asking everybody to at least call him. So we'll see what happens. 

Me and Elder P speak Spanish every so often. I learn a lot of new words from him. Chupacabra literally means "sucks goats" in spanish....

What has been your biggest challenge this week?
Well we had the big storm this week and there was literally nothing to do all day...Like you hope one day during your 2 years you can have a day off and then you realize the days off absolutely SUCK!!!

What has been your biggest concern?
Helping people get to church again...but because of the storm, church was cancelled. Which felt really weird. In missionary life, without church, there's not really any difference between Saturday and Sunday...

What has been your biggest success?
Having Elder Dube come to the mission was awesome!! He answered some of the questions we had for our area directly and it was amazing! Elder Dube gave a training on using scriptures to teach and did a roleplay about our situation exactly. And he used the "worth of souls is great" scripture. 

Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?
Elder Dube. For one, he talked about some amazing things. And for 2, he called me up to do a roleplay with him (I didn't volunteer...that's what i get for sitting so close to the front.) and he's just the nicest guy with a ton of energy and a huge testimony. And he smells freakin amazing. It's not weird it's just the truth...
What has been your most significant tender mercy?We helped the S's prep for the huge storm just before it hit, and it was pouring rain and we had to get some metal panels to cover a hole in their house and it was impossible. Like we had to drag it through mud about a foot deep, up a big hill. And the tractor couldn't even pull we had to tie ropes to it and pull it manually. And there is no way we should have been able to get it up there before the weather started getting crazy, but we did. Like I tied it to my waist and pulled it up the hill while the other 2 pushed....most messy service ever given...

What are you looking forward to this coming week?
We have a ward Halloween party on Friday with a chili cookoff! We aren't allowed to dress up but we'll find some way around that rule..., just kidding.

Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.
To actually have church so we can baptize people....could be a nice change...just a thought.

Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?
Helaman 5:12. My ponderizing scripture of the week. It's kind of ironic...

Anyways hope you all have a great week!
Love you guys!
Elder Hess
