Dear Fullmer Family,
How have you all been doing this week? This week has been different but it's been good. Life is good in Belle Glade! Not much out of the ordinary has happened this past week. I was able to see a GI Specialist and he still wasn't very sure about what is going on. I'm going to be having a colonoscopy tomorrow afternoon where hopefully they'll be able to have a better idea of what's been going on. This past week i've also been on a prescription to kill of Giardia if I had it. I'm done with the perscription and I feel just about the same. So we can rule that out of the possibilities. It's been tough this week since i've been very low on energy but i've been learning how I need to accept the will of the Lord in my life and to follow his council. I don't know what will happen tomorrow, no one knows what will come up in their lives, but the Lord does. If we follow Him, and "feast upon the words of Christ... the words of Christ will tell you all things that ye should do." I've definitely been learning many things, which haven't been easy, but they're strengthening me.
This week we had a disappointment. Yesterday, A couple of the people we have taught made a bad decision. I was really frustrated since they have so much waiting for them but they just won't take it. As we were driving back to the church I was very angry but as we sat in sacrament meeting, a peaceful feeling came over me knowing that I did my very best and that the Lord is proud of me. These disappointments really do strengthen me and really make the successes so much sweeter. Another person has kind of been avoiding us lately so that has also been tough. However we met a really cool new investigator.... He played semi-pro football and almost went pro but got in a car crash. He's best friends with a guy in the NFL... He's a very humble guy and is really interested in what we have to say. He's planning to be baptized on my birthday :) He's really had a rough life but has turned his life around and is just waiting for the Gospel. He's also going to be our personal trainer... He's HUGE!!! He let us know, "I'm finna get you thick!" (that means, I really want to help you work out... and yes, finna is how it's spelled.). We got a txt from someone the other day and I want to share it with you. This is how it is spelled, you might need the Urim and Thummim to translate it. I've already let you in on the whole "finna" word but here you go. "Dats were we at nw im finna check wit her husband n her first to c if its ok first den um gon txt u right bak.." Gotta love Belle Glade!!
This next week is also transfers... I don't know where all the time went but it's here nonetheless. I have a feeling that my compaion will be transferred, as much as I don't want him to... I also feel like I'm going to be training a new missionary. Who knows though?
Well that's about everything for this week. Sorry it's so short but my mind is a little preoccupied with what's going to be happening shortly :8 Please keep me in your prayers! I love you all!
