16 May 2015 "Week #47"
... it is not week #47 its just a random #.
..This week has been crazy. We talked to a lot of people and shared family history with a Mortician. That was an adventure!!
In Sacrament meeting on Sunday I gave a talk on the Law of Chastity for Mother's day. Ya, that was an interesting talk. It was super fun to study and to talk about. It has been the only talk I have been given that people did not come up to me and say nice talk. Well, except the Harris girls. They said it was great, funny, and real. I am trying to be a real Missionary. We all slip into the robot mode here and there.
As I have become a more real Missionary, people have been more accepting of me on a general level. From Tracting to talking with Members. When you are real and use your life experiences to help teach principals of the Gospel, people laugh and have a good time while they are learning. I hated school so I don't ever want to teach like a school teacher. No offense to school teachers...they just don't have the opportunity to teach in small groups and make it personal!
I have a great feeling that I am really going to love these last 7 months of my Mission. I am learning so much that I wish I had learned earlier but I am glad I get to learn it at all.
