Man, oh man, oh man...insomnia?! Ha I know how he feels, ever since I started my mission I haven't slept very well. So now I am taking melatonin every night and that helps a lot.
Well, this morning we went to the temple. It was a good experience. This past week we went on a lot of exchanges with the zone leaders and with the missionaries in the district so we did quite a bit of traveling and not as much actual work. This week we are focusing on unifying the members of the ward. And this month we have set a goal to contact most of, if not all of the members on the ward list. Because we should have over 300 members but we only have 50 or so active members, it's ridiculous. I think it is a result of not doing home teaching. We are hoping through the finding of these long lost members we will gain a few more new investigators as well.
I loved General Conference! And about the new ages for missionaries, I think it was good that they made the change. It is usually between that year from 18-19 that we lose a lot of active members anyways. I'm not too sure if I'm too fond of it yet being out on the mission right now, because quite frankly I have never met an 18 year old missionary before. So we'll have to wait and see. But so far I think that it is good. I think that we will have a lot more missionaries, male and female now. So I have to say that I don't have my backpack with me and my camera is in my backpack, so no pictures this week ): Anyhow, love you!!! Hope you have a great day and week! I will be talking to President Packard soon about 'End of Mission' stuff. I keep feeling like I'm getting OLD as a missionary, I hardly know anyone in the mission anymore /: Their all gone, by the way Elder Yim left this past Friday, his parents flew all the way from Hong Kong and picked him up. I remember him hitting his year mark with me...pretty soon you will be picking me up...I don't truly know what to think of that, it just goes by so quickly.
