I Hate Eating Out... [Apr. 7, 2014]

Hello friends,
The latter part of this week has been not very fun because I have been a little sick. It all started when a member took us to a restaurant to eat La Comida. I was a little excited at first because it was the first restaurant that I have been to down here. I thought the food was okay, but my stomach thought quite differently. The work was long, but had to go on, so I pushed through it. It isn’t that bad now, but it is sufficient for me to say that I am not too excited to eat out ever again.
One thing that I learned well this week is that when you are focused on yourself and your own needs, you end up being a terrible missionary. The whole reason I am down here is to help other people, and if I cannot focus my attention on them, I miss my entire purpose.
We picked up three new investigators this week that are the best. They are so ready and humble it really shocked me a bit at first. They struggle a lot financially and seem to live day by day, but I know that as they exercise faith in Christ, they will be fine.
Conference was great although it pretty much stopped missionary work here for 2 days in most cases. So glad I could watch it in English.
Les amo,
√Člder Seymour.
