This week has been stressful, but a good week. It started out hard, but got a whole ton better. My Monday was a huge bowl of stress and the stress moved into Tuesday and I was in a huge bowl if discouragement. But I know that my friends and family are praying for me and helping me and that helped a lot to get over the beginning of the week and move on.
Spiritual de-stress - The help that a good long prayer can give is very helpful. It was a mix of that and all the prayers that came from you all in Gringolandia that gave me the boost this week that I needed.
Oh crap stress - One of our great investigators is getting visited by another church, but they want to give him physical food to convert him and all we give is spiritual nourishment. It´ll be a hard battle, but I think the true gospel will overcome the false doctrine of Satan.
Funny thing (bust a gut stress) - I am laughing really hard with Elder Hoover, we have a ton of inside jokes among which are the tea shop, Elder Pratt quotes, and a few others. They really make a guy laugh and I´ll remember them for life. :)
Food stress - I ate a giant bag of Takis fuego. They are my new favorite chip. They are chips in the shape of tubes and they are super spicy, but the best thing. :)
Christmas stress - we already have trees up in the office (not my idea, dad).
I really am doing well and I hope to hear from all of you soon. Also remember Proverbs 25:25 ;) (As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.)
