How's it going everyone? My title this week is interpreted to mean too much mud, which pretty much describes most of our experiences this week! With most of our area not having paved roads and there being an excess of rain, mud becomes a little inconvenient haha.
So this week kind of got off to a rough start. Our first three days all of our lesson appointments fell through. Like, all of them. That was kind of frustrating, and the reason why this email will be a little bit shorter so I apologize in advance! The fall throughs wouldn't be so inconvenient, except for the fact that we have to walk often 30 minutes between appointments. It was a bit tough but we did our best to keep working.
We ended up doing some contacting in the town neighborhoods, which ended up being ok. The houses in that area were all probably really nice 30-50 years ago but haven't been kept up too well. So there are some pretty big houses there, not to mention lots of cool trees. Most of our contacts haven't yet been fruitful, but we are doing our best! Another fun fact about Zimbabwe: there are dogs just roaming around everywhere. I'm not talking about golden retrievers or cocker spaniels, I mean mangy, irritable, zhing-looking dogs. For those of you who know me really well, you know that dogs and I haven't always been pals. Haha tracting can be difficult sometimes because of said circumstances but nothing has happened as of yet!
Thank you for your love and support!!! A huge thank you to my loving ward members for the packages that were sent! I hope you all know I love you and pray for you!!
Love Elder Barlow
