June 20, 2016


Well this week was really good. Not much happened this past week, it was just a good week for missionary work. We were able to meet with quite a few people so that was fun! I feel really lucky being able to be in this mission because we are able to teach so many people and I know that all missions are definitely not like that so that fact that I get to have about 10 lessons each week between our investigators and less actives/new members is really awesome! The work really is going good in our area right now. It is crazy to think that I have been in Han-Uul for about 5 months now. I have been able to learn a lot since being here especially about myself. Yes, we were supposed to have a baptism this week but we had to push it back a couple of weeks because we weren't able to finish all of the lessons in time for them to get an interview but it’s okay. We didn't want to rush the lessons. We would rather take our time and help them understand then teach it really fast so that they could get baptized on the date we said. When we told them it would be a couple more weeks they were fine with it too. They really are great and I have been blessed being able to teach them and see how they have changed from when we first started meeting and then be able to see where they are now. I consider that a huge blessing. Not many people get to see those moments on their mission. I have been able to teach them from the beginning so it is really cool. Our other investigators are doing pretty well. With summer approaching a lot of them are busy and a lot of people go to the countryside for work and to be with family and some people go to relax and get away from the city so hopefully with that happening it won’t be as crazy in the city anymore. The other big thing this week is transfers. It will be interesting to see where I go but I am just trying to keep in mind that where ever I am, it will be where the Lord needs me. I am just excited for this next transfer because Nadaam is coming up in July! That month is going to be so fun! It is just like Tsagaan Sar but I think it will be better because first of all it will be warm. haha. Plus they have a lot of activities that go on during this time so that will be fun! I also have my deel now so I will be able to wear that for Nadaam :)

Just to let you know, I didn't get sick this week :) I was healthy so that was good. It was probably the first week in a while that I felt good so that was nice. haha. Bowling was a lot of fun! It was a great day out with the other sisters. We had a lot of fun! Although when we got there we ordered a pizza, it looked good in the picture but it was so gross! They put this weird meat on it, then it had corn, green olives, and it was just gross. I was really disappointed L Never again... I have learned that when it comes to Mongolia don't buy pizza or cake here because every time you will just be disappointed. haha it’s alright I don't need those things anyways

I have had some great experiences being here, I really am blessed. I sometimes forget how lucky I am especially since I’m here every day and so I get used to it and forget what a special opportunity it is to be here. Well that is it for this week. Hope you guys have a great week! Everyone stay healthy. Love you all!
