Holland Road

Although a very very good Mumford and Sons song, I couldn't really relate it to anything on my mission so far. That is, until Elder Massey and I started listening exclusively to Conference talks by Jeffery R. Holland in the car as we did our errands this past week. So there ya have it, we're living the Holland Road.

This week (as does most weeks) had some ups and some downs. The sad part is that the people that we were preparing for baptism by the end of the month kinda fell through because they still haven't gotten to church. We're not too discouraged by it though, because they'll have such a powerful experience watching General Conference that they'll just be begging for baptism. I know that's how I feel when I watch it, especially when our prophet Thomas S. Monson gets up to speak. He's such a boss.

As for cool things that happened, we learned that Fatima's papers have been found over in Guinea, so they could get them within a month! Then after that, it's only a trip to the government building so they can mark a date for marriage! They're super excited, they've been waiting for this for a while now, and we're super excited too.

Anyways, gotta go this week! Love ya all!
