Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.

June 9, 2014- Move
This week was a good week. We had 24 other lessons in total this week. But still nobody wants to really learn about anything. They say we can bring a message about Jesus but they are happy with their religion. So its seems to me just a waste of time teaching all these lessons. I hope though eventually someone will want to actually learn more and act on that desire. But for now we will just keep spreading the word best we can. The feelings of the week were very confusing. Some times i felt i was teaching the best that i have in my mission and then other times i was teaching the worst i have in my mission. Its just the hard part of trying to figure out what the people need to hear. Cause i want to teach people, not principals. Cause if that's all i was here to do, that would be a waste. cause they could go to any of the 100 churches on any given street and hear principals as well. So its that balance of teaching the people the principals they need for their lives. Still trying to figure it out. Hopefully i can go to an area with a newer Spanish missionary so i can do more of the teaching and find out quicker what works and what doesn't. And also so i can just speak more to the people.
I also found out yesterday that Tulio (recent convert) Is going back to the Dominican Republic this next Sunday. It will be sad to see him go but it will be good for him. He has had a hard time in the states. He has a great life back there so i dont know why he was here in the first place. To get baptized i guess. So were going to help him find the church building down there and get the missionary's there over to his house cause he has a HUGE family and maybe some of them, hopefully all can get baptized!
The transfer is coming to an end here in two weeks and i am pretty sure i will be leaving Gainesville. It will be sad to leave, but im ready for a new experience and a new place to work at. I had 3 Baptisms so far here, so no complaints. But i fell its time to go an work the field in another area.
