About time Missionary Mom posted something about her son in Cape Verde

Familia e Amigos,
 So this week has been a pretty solid week. We taught less lessons but in general things still worked out well. The branch is really improving here and I am way glad about it. We as well have some people who are really progressing twoards baptism which is just awesome. I guess I don't have many stories to tell about the week but I kind of just want to share something that I learned this week. So I was talking with my mission president. And he mentioned how a lot of the time at the start of things that we can see a hugge amount of progress. And then we hit this point where things just fall. And we just start thinking. What am I doing wrong? Or we start even doubting the success that we had. And it's really not that. There is a moment when thigs are down that we have to turn to God and ask Him to lift us up again. And as we continue to ask God He will continue to lift us up until we can become really what we need to be. And it's been something that has been on my mind. You know it applies a lot more broadly than just the mission. In any case this is true and the moments that we do this God will make us strong and qualify us. There are a lot of good things that are going on and I know that as hard as I work it's only because I have been given all this through God. I love being here. There are so many things to learn and it will never stop. I hope that you are all doing well. I love this work and I love this Church,
