10/26/2015 - DERICK'S FRIEND ELDER WORTON IS HEADED HOME TO IDAHO
Well it's coming down to four months now and I can't believe it. This week Elder Worton is going home and I remember when I was in the MTC and he came to visit me. This week was pretty slow. My companion was sick for most of it. I guess there is a virus going around it some water where you get a bad headache and throw up. I just hope I don't get it. We still got a little bit of missionary work done though. We had some interviews for baptism this week and planned on a baptism this Sunday but it didn't work out so they will be baptized on the 8th of November. We have the coolest members here. The members we ate dinner with yesterday were awesome. Their son owns a few snakes and he brought them out to show us. I told him to keep them on the other side of the table away from me ha. They told me I need to get a picture with one before I go and I know it would freak out my mom so I think I'm going too. This week as my companion and I were sitting around we started talking about mission and life. This is where my thought for today comes from. Don't worry... Be happy. We were talking about how I'm getting close to home and how I don't feel ready. Then we realized that we didn't feel ready for mission or most things in our lives but life carried on and all was okay. We tend to worry a lot but most of the time there is nothing to worry about. I know our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and not worry much. When we follow the path Jesus Christ set there is nothing to worry about. Have a great week everybody.
