I hope everyone’s New Years was just amazing! For new years, my whole district went over to a members house and we ate, talked, and relaxed. It was nice! My companion and I ended up going to bed before midnight because we were exhausted! A lot of missionaries stay up to see the fireworks. I must have been tired that night because I didn’t even hear them.
Oh! Something crazy. I am going to a new area. Tonight! Changes aren’t until next week but president said it would be best. I will be an hour away, and I will have another companion from the states. Crazy! I was for sure that I would be getting a Latina companion. I’m hoping that I can really improve in my Spanish this next change.
I was thinking this week that as a missionary, we have such interesting experiences haha. I was trying to contact this guy on the street and he offered me whiskey, basically putting it right up to my face. I was like, no thanks, I have water. Its just funny what missionaries have to go through sometimes.
Anyway. I know that this year is going to be amazing! This year for me will be a lot of hard work and trusting in the Lord. And I know that that is a privilege. I am thankful to get this experience. I hope that you all were able to think of new years resolutions to be able to draw closer to the Lord this year. I know that this is the only time that we have to be tested; right here, right now. On this earth. This time is so so important! We all have to try our best and work hard! The Lord is so involved in our lives, its crazy. He cares for each one of us individually. I was thinking a lot about the Atonement this week. Christ did EVERYTHING because He loves His Father. We need to love our Heavenly Father enough that we do everything FOR HIM. Its not easy. Its far from easy. But there are so many blessings just waiting for us.
I am thankful for the opportunity to be a representative of Jesus Christ!! I hope you all have an amazing week! be happy! :)
Love, Hermana Wiscombe!
