Another 6 weeks
'I am going to be staying here in Worcester Massachusetts as Zone Leader with Elder Porter again! I am glad because now I don't have to take over the area yet. Our zone is changing a lot though! About 32 new missionaries arrive on wednesday!! so many people training! Looks like I will most likely be finishing my mission here in Worcester!
For zone P-Day we had some fun playing some strange games. Reminded me of Boys Camp haha we had so much fun though! This week we are going Bowling!
We set a baptismal date with Anisio from Brasil for September! and we started teaching this old Dominican guy named Virgilio, He doesn't speak english at all and barely speaks his own language... not sure what is going on there but he doesn't understand our questions hahaha but he has good faith.
I was thinking about people who weren't following Christ the other night just sat and thought about it for a while... and it made me really sad... I realized there are family members and close friends who I let go on for so long without sharing my testimony or helping them come closer to God. I felt like I had wasted so much time... and lost so many opportunities.. So for those people who I let down I am sorry. I love you and I know it only takes a little effort on our part to help those around us feel loved and help them to understand how much God cares for them.
Anyway... that was a little weird.
I am getting worse at emailing.
hmmm... not much happened this week though. planted some flowers did some good missionary work. Lots of testifying! we had a couple baptisms in the district. super good... :)
Have a good week <3 Elder Richins'
