But anyways, we started teaching an investigator (someone interested in the church) on the third day. Sounds ok right? NOOO! It was in Romanian only. So hard! but so awesome.They have teachers role play as investigators but it is so intensely real. Our first lesson was about God and how he loves him (our investigators name is George). It went ok and we made a 2nd appointment. I was able to understand some of what he was saying (thanks to the gift of tongues yo!!). The second lesson was ok..We tried to show him through teh Book of Mormon that God shows his love but he didnt understand. The 3rd lesson BOMBED. My comp and I couldnt understand anything. We just sat there awkwardly and didnt do anything. I was so sad and angry afterwards because I LOVE GEORGE! I want himnm to be closer to God and feel like I did but that LANGUAGE BARRIER! So my teacher ltalked to the class about listening to the spirit and really focusing on what he was saying. He showed us a scripturee in D&C 68 an it made like everyone cry! I was baling like a baby. The scripture reminded us that we are here and missionary work is HARD WORK. Not everyone will love us but we still need to love them. That night my comp and i prayed so much and studied so hard the next day. We decided we would focus on prayer. He has to pray to know who god is. o we wrote out the steps in Romanian so he wouldnt have an excuse to not say the prayer this time. An due on our 4th lesson, the SPIRIT was so strong! We taught him and he loved it! It was a miracle from heaven! He prayed, and felt something. So today is our last lesson wit him and i hoep it goes well.
So remember, when times are tough, don't get down on yourself, let the Lord pick you up and make your weak things become strong! I love the Lord and that has intensified since i got here. I know he lives and loves us all!
I LOve you ALL!
