This week has been so busy at night because of my calling and everything that I haven’t really had any time to write. Today has been one of those emotional roller-coaster days. The only problem is that a lot of the day was the down side of the roller-coaster. First of all in gym I got made fun of a lot. I am not very good at basketball and I admit that but the elders I played with today seemed to make it their job to tell me every time I did something wrong. I didn’t play with the same elders that I usually do because they didn’t enjoy playing with the insulting Elders. Anyway, at the end of gym time I was pretty down on things.
I taught the first outline in Tagalog three times today. We taught once at the TEC and it seemed to go well. Tonight, though, we had to teach at the TRC and as soon as I got in that room all of my Tagalog left me. I didn’t feel very good about it. I guess one of the reasons I’m down is because I’m not doing as well as some other elders who seem to have it all figured out.
One final thing and then I’ll stop complaining. I’m really having a hard time with this leadership position. I don’t seem to have any respect from the elders. I really want the best for them but even in my own district they don’t want to obey all the rules.
Well the church is still true and I know I’m supposed to be here.
