Hello everyone! Hope all is well, as usual.
This week has been pretty good! We Had interviewswith our mission president, President Gardner. It's always good to spend some one on one time with him. He is very inspired. He showed me some things that I can improve on with my studies to make them more meaningful and successful. He definitely works very hard and is doing everything he can to help out all the missionaries in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. I couldn't have asked for a better leader.
Alsowe went to go help out this older man with some "yard work." But when we got there it was a completely different story... He raises pigeons. Like over a hundred of them. And they poop. A lot. So guess what he wanted us to do... Shovel it all up and put it in bags. Oh man it was so nasty. The smell of the whole area was just AWFUL. There was flies and beetles like all over the place too. But hey on the bright side he took us to this awesome barbeque place for lunch. Their Smoked brisket was so good. Overall I'd say it was worth. plus the man couldn't have done it by himself because he had a lot of back issues. so that was nice.
But i am happy to say that we have had a lot more success this week as far as teaching lessons go. I know that the amount of lessons taught isn't the measure of a successful missionary but it is always nice to be able to teach people. We have found a few new investigators that I sincerely think will progress in the future.
Other than that i am still trying to figure out how to be a missionary! Every day it seems i find other things that i need to improve on, which is good. And i assume that will never change as long as I am out serving the lord.
Anyways I love you all!Elder Carter
