This week was great and long. I don't know why but these last few weeks have felt like a drag.  Honestly I have just about knocked every door here in Beja in our area in walking distance. We still have this week or next to get the rest of them finished then restart. Many of them don't answer so we need to do it again anyway. But I don't like going down the road knocking every door I see. I heard one time that an elder said, "you aren't exercising your faith if you hit ever door on every street." so I have been putting that to the test. We found some pretty solid investigators, well, potential investigators. Better than nothing. It's the best week I have had on getting more solid potentials, instead of the people that roll their eyes and say,"yeah come back another day, when you want," wink wink nod nod. That happens a lot. But it's all good. 

The weather is hotter than I would like. It is perfect in the mornings when we go out to run. But by working time comes, it is too hot. We don't have a thermometer so I couldn't tell you the temperature. 

We actually did one little thing of service this week, we got to take someone's trash out. When we ask to do that, only maybe one in a hundred accept the help. And we don't even get the opportunity to ask much anyway. :) So it's rare.
