(Excerpts from Elder's Email: November 18th, 2013)
My week has been so depressing. We knock on doors, get yelled at or laughed at and then slammed on. We have taught about 13 lessons this week. The people's hearts are so hardened unto the gospel. Elder Gautavai and I are being fed well. We do service and it brings peace. I feel like I can change it to a missionary moment at any time. My testimony has been tested this week and sure has been bruised. I feel for Alma and the four sons of Mosiah, but in some ways my testimony has been strengthened.
