What a crazy week! For those of you who don’t know, we had a missionary broadcast this week. Basically, it was the missionary council for the church training us. BUT, they also made some HUGEEEEE announcements. So, they completely changed the missionary schedule and also changed our key indicators (the numbers you use to measure your work). Our schedule now, for our mission, is do your personal study in the morning, daily planning, work until 12h30, lunch until 14h00, 14h00 comp study, 14h30 or 15h00 language study, then work until 21h00. I am happy because there is more time for lunch and they also gave us more time to sleep at night. YES! And we only have to do a 30-minute personal study on P-day instead of full studies.
The key indicators that we now track are baptisms and confirmations, investigators at church, investigators with a baptism date marked, and new investigators. Went from 9 key indicators down to 4! Woot woot!
Too bad this amazing new mission plan is only being applied at the end of my mission.... but at least I have 3 months to make it count!
This week my comp and me had training for the Primary presidency from our branch... It was actually super good! They were barely following the manuals from the church, so we fixed that. I like giving the trainings here in the branch!
Remember that Rafiki dude that we found last week? Well, he came to church and once he got there he found out that he was a childhood friend with our branch president. Nice little reunion in church.
We had to go to the HCN (Nampula's general hospital) every morning this week because my comp has to do psiotheropia (I forgot that word in English....) I am pretty sure I took a couple years off my life just by entering that place... But my comp is slowly getting better, so I guess we are doing something right.
This week we will be in Beira for a Zone Conference! I am excited to fly and to also go eat some normal food with all of the other missionaries. So it should be a pretty fun week!
Thanks for all of the emails! I love you all! See ya!
