So many people have been counting down for me, I've been saved from having to do it myself. Instead, I can focus on the things that are really important like working! I don't feel like I'm going back to "normal" life because my life here seems normal.
This week was so exciting. I'm not even sure what kind of emotions I've been feeling. Going home is a nice excuse to use to get people to meet. We had some potential investigators FINALLY make an effort to meet to say goodbye. It was interesting to see who went out of their way and who politely brushed us off.
We visited a woman from our potentials list who has three kids who are adorable. Her ten-year-old son kept speaking English with us. He's a very polite, well-behaved kid. Her other two girls are twins, and they're only one year old. They kept her busy! She's interested in practicing English, and she was so nice. She would be such a nice addition to the branch. Our conversation didn't touch much on the church, but I hope the missionaries and the church can befriend her and help her see what kind of blessings are available here.
We also met with a former taxi driver that we've kept in contact with over the past few months. He said he's having a hard time in life and actually said he sometimes has suicidal thoughts. This is the first time I've seen him since he gave us a taxi ride, but he is openly looking for help and is ready to learn.
The other potential we saw was the primary president's daughter. She ALMOST came to church, but she was babysitting a neighbor's daughter and didn't know when the parents would be back. She also wants English help for her son. I can see her just falling in love with the church.
Church attendance was low, but the people are solid. I'm really going to miss everyone here. They've shown so much love. I know that sometime in the future we'll see each other again. :) The Church is true!
Я вас люблю! :D (I love you)
