La venganza del perro...[May 25, 2015]
Well, this week has been pretty interesting... okay, not really. Honestly we have mostly been walking around, teaching when we can, eating with members every day, talking with people in the street... that's about it.
One interesting this that did happen is that my companion got bit by a dog. It was the first time it has happened to him on the mission. It didn't break the skin, so everything is all right. Thankfully, I have avoided it up until now and I hope to continue this.
One thing that I did learn this week is that sometimes, we have the tendency to be way too hard on ourselves. Sometimes we think that we really aren't doing a good job in a lot of different things, when in reality, the small effort we put forth when it is sincere and with hope, is just enough. God generally doesn't care much if we use the perfect words, or if we always have the perfect attitude, what he really cares about is if we are trying and we trust in him enough to do what he wants us to do. Patience is a virtue that seems to apply to us as well.
I hope you all have a good week!
