Me and Elder Strate were thinking we wanted to up the adventure this week, so we rode up to Tendou and down to Kaminoyama to hit up some homies who probably very very rarely meet missionaries and it was great. It was fun to bike there since the weather is great, and we met some cool people and everybody was really nice. We are thinking we want to spend a lot of time outdoors from now on and do as much of our studies and stuff outside as possible, we can meet a lot of chill people too doing it, it was awesome this week.
We’ve really been pushing hard, and with the three-month mark I’ve been thinking about pushing hard to the end. My mom did a 200-mile bike ride this last week cause she’s a beast, and I have been thinking about stamina and stuff. A lot of time I get tired out and worn out and want to take a break, but the more I push myself on the daily to hold out on resting and push through studies without falling asleep and push to do what’s necessary before what I want to do, it makes me stronger and stronger every day. And it’s the same thing spiritually, sometimes I feel like my faith is running out and door one hundred and something is just going to be the same thing as the last, but if I really push and remember the root of my faith and my actual belief in God and Him helping and providing for us, it helps me push through with faith and talk with more confidence and be happier and really enjoy dendou (proselyting).
This week was dope, love y’all,
