we had a lot of meetings this week. lots. there were a couple of days where we had to wake up at 5:45 and just drive to a meeting instead of studying or anything. i know 5:45isn't that bad, but whether you study the scriptures or not in a day makes a difference in your day, people.
the mission is going good. we did a lot of tracting in this town called Eagle Lake where everyone just lets you in for some reason. it's great. this next week will just be filled with lessons so that'll be good.
it's really cool just to meet all these new people. i've probably met more people so far on the mission than i've known throughout my entire life up till now. most of the time it's kind of a shallow relationship because you only get to know them for a few minutes and never teach them again. but nobody is exactly the same. i didn't even realize how much diversity in personality could exist in the world, but there's so much. God's children are all unique. it's pretty beautiful.
the mission has just been so good for me already. i can hardly even explain it. but it's made me so much more mature and well-adjusted and probably confident (i hope. either that or it's just made me more oblivious to my faults. but,,,,,, i don't think that's true at all.). every 18-year-old should serve a mission even if it's not related to religion and they're just going out and serving people. but truthfully i think the religion part helps a lot. the Lord is merciful and He loves to bless people.
that's all i really have to say. God is so good. He's probably the best Person i know. but everyone else is really good too.
i love you all.
