I Know That With Hard Work Blessings Come

Well another week has come and gone and here we are again!

So let’s get started from the beginning!  Anyway, so this week was really awesome because we got a lot of teaching done.  I felt like every single day we were so busy because we were constantly teaching. Every single day I was just tired when the day was over!

But everything wasn't completely perfect. We have an investigator who always says we can teach her at a certain time but then she is never there!  So the other day that investigator wasn't at home, so as we were leaving we decided to talk to just one random guy, and well it went pretty well! We had a lesson with him later in the week and it went really well, but the problem is that he is always working so it’s hard to actually have a lesson with him but he liked the message we gave and he said one day he will come to church!

The best thing from this week was yesterday at church....we had 6 people come to church!  It was awesome!  I really feel as the harder I’m working the better my area is getting! Now I’m always wondering why people hate coming to this side of Cotonou!  I’m not saying it’s easier here than anywhere else but I know that with hard work comes blessings!

This week we had our personal interviews with President Weed and it went really well!  In mine we talked a lot about faith, and he gave me a lot of good advice. It was really good talking to him!

So there has been a fairly large announcement made!  In July we will be getting a new Mission President! This past week they announced it and his name is Pierre-Paul Morin! He is Canadian!  He is from Québec City, which is a French speaking area in Canada next to Montreal!

Anyway that’s just about it for this week!  I hope all is well!  I love you and miss you!

Avec amour,

Elder Joseph D. Allred II
