Presented here are portions of Elder Daniel Willoughby’s thirty seventh email from the Mongolia Ulaanbaatar Mission. If anyone wishes to send Daniel a message, write it in the comments and I will make sure he receives it.
It was a very eventful week. I don’t have much time to write about it, but I’ll do the best I can. I went on an exchange with my district leader. That day went great and we got a lot of good work done. He told me I was doing good and to keep going. It was good to hear that.
It was somewhat of a very depressing week after that though. Nothing really seemed to work out just right. We had a recent new mission rule where we have to meet with every new member that doesn’t come to church the following week. Yesterday one of my new members came, so we get to try and meet 14 of 15 this week. Usually about half come to church so I don’t really know what happened.
I am doing my best to help my companion. He is somewhat of a difficult person to be with. He has tested my patience many times and other times made me frustrated. I haven’t really lost my temper or anything, I’ve always been known for being quite calm so for me to get frustrated tells a little about him. I do my best to see the good and positive things about him. We get along, but I for the most part am always trying to motivate him to do missionary work. Anyway, that is just part of being a missionary. Sorry no pictures this week either. I’ll see what I can do this coming week. Thanks for the support and emails.
Love from Elder Willoughby
