So this week was a lot more like a normal week... We had lunch with another ward on wednesday and then we did an exchange out of nowhere which was pretty fun.. I stayed with Elder Seawell. He is such an awesome elder and I look up to him quite a bit.. So it was cool to work with him for the day. After that we had a special leader conference... 

Elder Godoy from the Seventy came and talked to the leadership of the mission. Everyone thought he was going to tell us all the things we were doing wrong.. But he talked a lot about our personal conversion.. Without that there is no way that we can help others be converted... It is so true and really important as well.. We always need to be getting better to help others get better.. it is kind of sad that sometimes since I have been here I am not feeling too much like i am getting better as a person.. I know I need to but it just doesnt seem to be happening.. 

we actually had a pretty good chunk of time to work in our area this week. Which was super good.. Sadly we didnt get the results that we wanted at the end of the week. The hardest problem that we have here is that people dont seem to want to come to church... I dont know if we just arent explaining it well enough for them or what... But it is sad.. As missionaries we work the whole week to get people to get to church to recieves Gods blessings.. If they go we feel super accomplished.. If not we feel destroyed... 

But we ended up having one baptism this week. It was going to be 2 but one of the twins has a fear of the water and still hasnt been able to be fully baptized.. Every week we are getting a little bit closer. I love this family though... It makes me super happy to see the blessings of the gospel in their lives.

Baptizing is great. :)

I hope that you all had a great week.. If you have any questions feel free to ask.. I am full of answers... MAYBE haha

Love you all. 

Elder Hamrick
