Working Hard Makes Life More Enjoyable

Life is going by quicker and quicker. I can’t believe I’ve already been here for nearly 3 months, but still every day I realize that my time here is short. I want to keep up the days that I work hard and work even harder on the days that I fall short. I have a goal to be more like Nephi so I will just “go and do” and keep doing my best.

Missionary work is not easy, especially after dark. It makes it a lot harder to navigate the town and it is especially hard to make appointments work. Contacting is near impossible after 6:30pm because everybody goes to bed around 8 pm. So I have a bit more study time in the evenings. I have a new slogan: “Come what may and love it!”

My mom asked me about buying food. We use the barter system a lot and I have to go to different places for different products. Many times, because I am not a native, they  try to overcharge me.

Something of Interest: I cut my own hair with the clippers I brought and I messed up, so the other three elders tried to fix it….and this is the result. (not a haircut I usually wear).   So, yeah… is what it is.  🙂
