Friends and Fam, what's up!?

Friends and Fam, what's up!?

Not too much goin on really. Just a usual week in the life of a missionary. Ups and downs like always but there's no need to think about the downs when there's ups 😉 we're currently in the debate between if we should drop one of our investigators because his lack of progress, and if we should baptize one of our investigators who wants to but may not be ready because of his minor handicap he has. Don't like deciding these things but we'll see what happens.

In other news, we get transfer calls this Saturday, pretty crazy fast...I have a feeling I'm staying and my comp is leaving, but honestly anything can happen so we'll see. We had ward conference on Sunday, it was pretty tight. The Sake Presidency came and one of the counselors is such a homie, I love him. He actually lives here in Ragusa! He has a younger brother on a mission right now in England and everyone in Ragusa says we look and act the same so that's interesting haha.

We actually have a ward mission leader here in Ragusa (first time in my mission) and he's super awesome :) he wants us to try something these next 3 months that he hopes will help this ward get more motivated and educated in regard to missionary work. So I hope all these member appointments is week will have some sort of effect in the long run...

Weather is warming up here, kinda weird. Wait jk we're next to Africa :')
But yeah Ragusa has its cold days but usually it's warmish out here. We're eating good, wearing our shoes out, and trying our best to change lives out here. Not much else to say about this week, other than the fact that a few verses hit me that I wanna share with you, they're found in the bible in the book of Matthew, many of you may know them. It says:

26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

Bottom line—don't be ashamed to testify and defend Christ and His sake. There's nothing better you can do, and nothing worse you can do than deny Him. He is real and He is there for us. We need to show we appreciate Him by defending His name in every moment.
God is good. And so is His Son.

Love you all, and talk to you next week when I find out what's happening with transfers! :)
