People are so difficult. I don’t understand how people can think that they can worship God but that he doesn’t have his church here on the earth. We had a long discussion today with the R. family. I thought that he was progressing really well because he’d let us give him a baptismal date. He told us today that he doesn’t want to change religions but that he isn’t satisfied with the Catholics. He wants us to keep coming back so that we can “add to his knowledge.” He doesn’t, however, want to take any action of follow any of our invitations. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or if he’s just hard-hearted. I guess I just need to keep on doing all that I know how to do and let the Lord take care of the rest of it. I really want to be successful as a missionary but I often fell that I don’t know how to do it right. Especially I’ve felt like this since becoming a senior companion. I didn’t used to be worried about wasting time and not getting places quickly. Now all that is suddenly very important to me. I hope that I can learn what I’m supposed to from this experience.
