Played the Piano for Primary and We Didn't Suck! (Week #64)

Life is good! This week was pretty long but really good!

So yeah 3 day was all the leaders in the whole mission. Probably about 60 people. I learned a lot about having a good attitude and how to change a bad one to a good one. Tons about the Book of Mormon and how to use it in lessons and stuff like that.

Elder Katieli is awesome. He's a super good example for me. I've learned that when you work really hard in an area, even if you get transferred from it, you'll still get the blessings in the next one.

Soooo A....We went by him on Sunday to help him get to church and stuff...and he told us his girlfriend is now pregnant and he has to leave up north to work...Ironic thing is we taught him the law of chastity last week and he told us after that he was going to do what he wanted cause he's not baptized. Don't you love it when those
consequences come so quick? Fabulous.

What has been your biggest challenge this week?

We've been trying to find a way to involve the members in the work more and it's tough cause they work. But luckily we got to do splits with the M boys on Saturday. It was a lot of fun. They're awesome kids.

What has been your biggest concern?
Well A was kind of a concern cause we knew he wasn't following the LOC...And we see how that turned out sooooo yeahhhhh....

What has been your biggest success?
We've been working really hard with the A family to get them to come to church and they came this week which was awesome!

Who has been your favorite person this week? Why?
I got to work with Elder M on exchanges. He's a blast. Really smart kid. 

What has been your most significant tender mercy?
Probably having the A family come. We also got to teach the youth class on Sunday about mission prep and then played the piano for Primary and we didn't suck! So that was good.

What are you looking forward to this coming week?
Working hard for the end of the transfer!

Do you have a goal set for this coming week? Tell me about it.
We're going to find someone to baptize. We know there's a miracle out there somewhere.

Which scripture has had the biggest impact on you this week?
I saw a parable I'd never seen before in Corinthians I think. It was about the body of Christ and how we're all baptized into his "body" or church. And all the parts of that body are different but all important and all do some good. It was really interesting.

Love you guys!
Elder Hess
