Among other highlights of the week, there is a cat who lives outside of our front door. He is pretty ghetto, but we are kind of attatched to him. He meows for hours, and we feed him microwaveable chicken strips and crackers. It is hard to tell if he meows because he is hungry or lonely or full of fleas. But we are friends.
We are running out of our alloted miles for the months, so we have started walking more. We have seen a lot more cats, so that makes it fun. They usually look better than "our cat". We have also been able to have more short, on the spot lessons with the people we meet outside.
The family that went missing last week has been found! They had some family emergencies, but we are back in contact now and things are looking good.
An interesting thought. I used to plan my week, then put goals for how many people we wanted to teach. Now, we are doing the opposite. As my companion says, "When you plan and then make goals, you are telling heavenly Father what YOU are going to accomplish. When you set goals and then make plans, you are asking for his help and inspiration to achieve those goals."
A girl in this ward just got her mission call. She came to a lesson with us a few days later, and it was fun to talk about missions and preparing and all that. I just want to say that I have probalby never regreted my decision to come out here on a mission. I don't know how else I could have confronted some of my weaknesses, met so many great people, and grown so much spiritually. If you feel like serving a mission, do it.
Have a great week!
