Six Months

I can’t believe I have been out for six months already…

The time here is going by so quickly; life as a missionary is good. And strangely enough, Africa is beginning to seem rather normal to me, the people, the food, and the weather.

And some more good news….the cockroaches should be exterminated this week. Should be, Haha….I will keep you posted.

Also, I got a mosquito net for my bed. Here’s what it looks like in place:



And stored for the day:


My mom was asking about a typical day for me.

So on a typical morning right now:
I wake up at 6:30, pray, write in my dream journal, exercise a little bit (I wanna start exercising more).
Then I make breakfast which is either oats, hot chocolate and bread, or sometimes cornflakes with powdered milk. I miss real milk…
Anyway, then I shower, get dressed, and study for three hours: one hour personal study, and one hour companion study, but since I’m training, we study for an extra hour.
We then take our lunch. It should be an hour, but my companion really likes to cook and so it ends up taking longer than that usually.

By around 1:00 we are out proselyting.

I wish we could be doing better. Things are a bit slower paced just now.  I’m learning a lot being a trainer and leading. This coming week, I’m seriously focusing on improvement. I had a hard time yesterday and I decided not to get down on myself as much as I normally would, but continue onward with the same amount of determination. Somedays it’s not easy, but overall life as a missionary is good .

Take care and keep smiling,
Elder Gilbert
