The thing is, I feel like it can't until I learn to work with E. Taukei'aho. I told him all I wanted to do was to work in harmony with him, and have the strongest unity immediately when we got in the area. I'm sure I haven't acted like it at least a bit because it's not working, In fact, it's in the opposite direction. When I did the exact same thing last week with E. Kaufusi, I was met with love and willingness to do the work. He was extremely discouraged and not happy about the work when I got in the area, but that changed in a day. Now, with E. Taukei'aho, he doesn't even talk with me. I ask him questions, and he avoids it; he won't eat anything I touch, he doesn't seem to care about the area and asks no questions until we reach our appointments. He'll act like he doesn't care about what I say, but I can still tell he listens, so that's a chance to improve. But overall, I feel like I've offended him, but I don't know what to do. Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed cause I have a lot of new things to deal with, but I hope I don't complain about it. I just want to be happy. Anyways, I hope we can work together, despite our huge differences. He's had amazing experiences on the mission already, and he knows the missionary work. His experience in other areas has really improved his wards; he does make a point of telling me that his other companions are amazing missionaries.
WE have to get the teaching and unity together or else we'll lose the little investigators we have. We aren't finding any, and we didn't feel as motivated last week to open our mouths. There must be unity for there to be success, no matter the differences. I know prayer is going to play a huge part in that, and I ask you president to hold me strict to my area; help me to be a kind companion, and I really hope I can get the purpose of E. Taukei'aho in my area.
I don't feel like writing too much more.
