November 5. 2012

Hello Everyone,
I feel like this week went by incredibly fast. It's crazy, I feel like I was sitting at this computer yesterday writing and email home. I'm glad this week is over though. I've been losing my temper a lot this last week. All of this trying to be patient with everyone is just getting harder and harder, and there is basically nothing you can do to just chill out and relax as a missionary so all my frustration is just coming out unexpectedly at random moments. I'm working on it though.
Elder Anyoso wanted to drive this last week and in one day he hit a dog, almost got t-boned, and strayed into oncoming traffic I don't even know how many times. It scared the crap out of me and needless to say, he was one of the people that my frustrations were let out towards. I have no idea how he passed his driving test back in Kenya, and if all the drivers are like him in Kenya, you can bet that I'll never ever go there. Ever.
We did meet a couple of really awesome families though. I really hope they work. I've seen so many really awesome families just fall away and it sucks. I'll keep praying for them though.
We only had 2 investigators come to church yesterday which was really lame since like everyone promised us that they would come. The hardest parts of mission are dealing with other missionaries first, and then forgiving everyone that makes so many empty promises to you. I wish we lived back when people would never tell you they were going to do something, unless they actually meant it. That would be awesome.
I'm sorry that there's not really much to report on this week. Mission is like one giant blur, and it's not helping that the guy sitting behind me is listening to a webenar about how to get every woman you meet to go home with you at the end of the night ridiculously loud. It's making it a little hard to concentrate especially because it's very descriptive. 
Anyway. I love and miss you all and hope you have an awesome week. And don't forget to read your scriptures.
Elder Balmforth
