Emergency talks

Whats happening everyone? How are you all doing? This week was pretty good. Kind of rainy and cold but we are coming out of the winter so that is a blessing. But to start off, it isnt super rare to have people just not show up for things here. And that happened in Sacrament meeting this week. I got to church and found out that I had to give a 15 minute talk. I had like 15 minutes to prepare too. I found out the secret though. You just have to find a few scriptures and tell a few stories and rely on the spirit. I ended up giving a decent talk about the commandments for 15 minutes haha. Also, My companion was bit by a dog this week so we had to take an emergency trip to the doctor so he could receive his shots haha.

We also had one person in Church this week. Mariella went with her 7 year old son. And just like 7 year olds do. He got super bored and wanted to go home. So that was kind of lame. She dropped him off and came back but she was a little worried the rest of the day. She is still working on her smoking habit but she is getting a lot better. If she hasnt smoked after Friday she will be able to get baptized the 13th of August!!

Other than that we had a few really hard days and frustrating days. People here are tough but you just have to continue looking for the good ones.

Love you all and have a good week!
