A perfect week is not necessary to be happy

Missionary work goes well :) not a perfect week, but that's not always necessary to be happy. Even if nothing seems to be accomplished, no one came to church or you never were able to teach a lesson, if you did all you can, the Lord gives you a feeling of peace and accomplishment :) Like Elder Holland says "You get credit for trying I love that doctrine!" :) I love it too.

We had a good lesson this week in which we taught the Jesus family (yes that's their last name haha), the ones with a little girl that the dad and she came to church. We had a lesson marked for Saturday with Vanderley and Katizia but the family dis-marked it. Blah! haha but they firmly marked for next Saturday, so we'll try to teach with a super cool recent convert of Elder Wanlass and Short named Aleh during this week.

We painted part of our ward secretary/mission leader Marco's house on Saturday. Goodness it's so funny to hear him joke with his grandma haha. He's a recently returned missionary and has been helping the ward tons. The sisters were able to help his grandmother (who raised him) be baptized :) Now he's working with us to help open his grandfather to receive the gospel :)
We talked with Marco too which was good :) He's a great teacher, and funny guy.
We're preparing a man to be baptized on the 29th! It'll be super cool :) He's come to church for quite a while, was almost baptized in the past but got sick and was in the hospital for 3 months without anyone knowing. But he came back and we've been teaching him :) He has a big desire to improve, and is working on quitting to smoke. So that's good :)

I hope your week goes well everyone :)
