May 12, 2014 (week 43)

This week will be short, because we already got to talk for a bit yesterday. It was nice to talk to you all and see how things are going. It is weird to think that I will only talk to you 2 more times in the mission. The mission is really going by quick, crazy how time flies.

The work here has been a little slow. We have been able to teach a lot and find a lot of people to teach but they aren’t really progressing much. Not many are reading and no one is really going to church. We are going to work really hard on trying to get people to come to church. This seems to be the biggest challenge that investigators have. I don’t know exactly why.  I guess it would vary depending on the person. Some because of the distance, others because they think the church will be the exact same as the church in front of there house, (because there is literally a church every 5 houses, that’s not even an exageration, never seen so many churches in my life), but I think the biggest reason is simply because they don’t understand the importance and don’t always look at church as a blessing but more as an obligation.

I have a lot of hope for this upcoming Sunday though.

Love
Elder Lawrence
