Chapter 39 Life is numbers

To be honest I don't have a lot of time and I'm rushing so this will be short-er

I get to skype mom next week cuz it's mother's day whoooooo-hoooo
our ward is fantastic, food is great, i'm not dead, and it's starting to rain.

One of the missionaries in the zone is training to be an accountant in BYU-H before she left and dang.... I miss talking about accounting but that's for 2 years from now. It is helping me out though! I can testify to you the power or Microsoft Excel and Access, and by knowing how to use them properly, I promise that it helps organize members and reactivate others in a way that just makes me smile.

A lot of times seeing a number on a board means absolutely nothing but in missionary work every statistic is a soul. Every number is a lesson to teach. and Every second is a moment for us to come closer to our loving Heavenly Father. Sometimes I'm ashamed because other sects of religion only teach hellfire, but it doesn't have to be that way. When you start to see people beyond a baptism or a church meeting count and see them as a loving son or daughter of God, I promise that that is when you start to see miracles happen in their life. In accounting everything has to be equal on the debit and credit side, but here in the field, whatever side they're on. If you choose to listen, if you choose to love them, then you can start to see how God views all of His children: chosen and worth more than all the treasures of the world.

My investigators are fine. a found a guy that can make custom made barongs out of silk and pineapple and I'm really tempted to spend $120.... I'll ask mom later, but before that, I'll teach him and dunk him first.

And idk what else to share.... oooo BYU vocal point is amazing to listen to and motorcycles even though they are bawal (banned), are very very fun.

2 pictures. 1 from the baptism with a legion of fellowshippers who helped us teach, and 1 of my zone leader trying to fix our janky bathroom.

Toilet times: I can kill multiple mosquitoes while fixing our piping. also we have a spider in there. he's a very nice spider because he kills the bigger bugs. I named him Henry. he's a chilll spider. also our wall is sweating water. through the tiles..... I don't know what's going on but I'm praying about our bathroom.
