Hey everyone! There isn't a whole lot of vaovao (news) this week.
The work has been going. It's not as fast and easy as I would like, but as Elder Holland says, "Salvation is not easy." Elder Covey and I have now been together for almost 3 months and not had a single baptism. That might not seem that bad, but for this mission that isn't very good. The problem is that people here don't have a whole ton of education so they don't retain new knowledge as easily as most people and so when Elder Covey got here and was trying to get a feel for where our investigators were at we realized that none of them know very much. So we pretty much just started everyone over on the first lesson. That's not a bad thing because we have found the people who are really committed and the ones who weren't. Because that is another big problem here. People are more than willing to say they will do something, but to actually get them to do it is the tricky part. So moral of the story is me and Elder Covey have been together for almost 3 months and had 0 baptisms. But on the bright side, once our investigators get baptized they are going to be way solid members!!!
Have a great week!
