It was nice and cool this week. We lucked out since our air conditioner broke yesterday so we just leave the back door and front door open to keep cool air running through while we are there.
I got a flat in the other tire so back down to Turlock we went and I got a stronger back tire with slime between the tire and the tube. We walked near the end of the week which wasn't to bad since it was nice and windy.
Today as we were washing our laundry, 5 investigators passed by with whom we talked. It was awesome.
e to see them and follow up on the commitments we left with them. To our sweet knowledge many had been reading in their Book of Mormon and praying. We just need to help them understand the importance of church. We hear, 'oh all the churches lead you back to God' or 'oh but it's all the same God.' And it all goes back to the apostasy and restoration. We are working on teaching that more clear which becomes more and more easier with a growth in vocabulary and testimony. We have found some really solid new investigators who are so interested in the Book of Mormon so we are looking forward to knowing them better.
I find myself wanting to leave the house right after we get ready to go out an talk with people. In studies I just get stuck thinking and when I think, I go crazy. Someone told me I should run 5 miles in the morning in 30 minutes-so now you all now know what my workout will be everyday.
On the downhill of the mission, I have felt a yearning for home. A yearning to just be with my family again. I find myself as a missionary with constant changes in who you live with, who you talk to, who you eat with, who you teach, and where you are. Nothing ever seems sure. A quote shared by my mom says, "Great things never came from comfort zones." Socrates said that the secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new. The point of this life is to become new.
