Yesterday was kind of an off day too. Not as bad as wednesday, but I was just kind of feeling down. We got one of our investigators to be baptized, which is great! But at the same time we have another one who is going to take a lot of work, and It makes me sad/frusterated that I can't communicate with him as well as I can to help him out. Near the end of the day, me and elder schuman were both feeling discouraged. 5 minutes before we were supposed to go back to the residence hall, a sister in our district asked for a blessing because she was sick. Elder Schuman and I went into a storage closet for 6 or 7 minutes and prayed, that we would be able to feel uplifted and ready to give the blessing. I annointed, and he sealed, and it was an incredible experience, and an awesome way to end a not so good day.
So after a week full of ups and downs, I looked in the mirror this morning and saw I had another mark on my forehead. I looked closer, and kinda laughed. On my fore head, I have a tiny little smiley face. I'm sure this is just coincidence/me hitting my head on my bed, but it's pretty funny that after such a weird week I have a smile on me. I think that's a great lesson to remember, especially when things get way worse. I love you all, and thank you for all the support! Com amor, Elder Stallings
