This week was pretty crazy.  For the first couple of days we were doing super well.  We went to zone training and we were all pretty bold about everything.  We decided that we need to change everything in our missionary work, again.  We got the Spirit for the first time since the start of the transfer and it changed everything that night! then i got sick... and we went to Lake Sevan with the ward and didn't get home until 11:30, we had khorovats and went and saw old churches.  on Saturday i got really sick again, probably because I didn't take medicine and ate whatever i wanted.  but, yesterday we had a record of less actives come to church! we had ward conference and its a big deal in Armenia.  it was really good for the ward to hear that they need to help us in missionary work if they want a temple here.  then we went to appointments with the other elders and while we were walking home i talked to a Papik on the street and invited us over to eat.  so, he gave us vodka and cold soup.  we ate the cold soup and he drank most of the vodka.  i asked if we could pray for him and he said no.  so i pretended to be sad and he asked, "why are you sad?" and i told him " i just want to pray for you and your family and make sure that you are happy." so he said,"when I'm dead, then you can pray for me." so that was really funny and a highlight of the week.  apparently a flu is going around the mission.? but i talked with the zone leaders today and we talked a lot about what we can do to pay the price and then me and Elder G received tons of revelation just talking with each other.  so pretty much, we are starting to understand why missionary work is still hard when you are doing your best you can.  its awesome, we are feeling more confident and at peace now.  but, that doesn't mean that you can rest! my perspective on missionary work is changing a lot! its really fun and doesn't need to be overbearing.  
  • 2 Nephi 28:30

  • 30 For behold, thus saith the Lord God: I will give unto the children of men line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little; and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts, and lend an ear unto my counsel, for they shall learn wisdom; for unto him thatreceiveth I will give more; and from them that shall say, We have enough, from them shall be taken away even that which they have.
  • He will give us over time and will help us along the way.  He wont give us too much for us to bear! we will all learn from our mistakes and press on!
  • look what we found in Sevan
