What’s up! Where to begin, holy cow. I wrote things down, but I forgot the paper haha. Anyway, my life is crazy! It’s hard and stressful, but its awesome because I get to share what means the most to me! Fist of all, let me start off by saying that I have never had to have more patience in my life haha. Patience with everything. With the culture, the language (oh my heavens), people, comps, yourself, just everything! I definitely have had to pray a lot. I guess that’s the whole point, right? :)
Well first, my comp went to a trainers meeting in a different city so I was with some different sisters for the day in a different city and it was really fun seeing a new area! It was like all country (instead of my area-city), and it was really peaceful. It was fun getting to spend some time with new people doing new things. It was a lot of fun! We are doing divisions this Wednesday, so I think thatll be fun!
Seeing people that came with you from the MTC here, is seriously like seeing family. I get so excited to see anyone that I knew in the MTC. Especially the one guy that came here with me from my district, its cool to see him, cause it feels comforting, like I’m not alone and I’m seeing my brother or something haha. I don’t know if that’s weird.
Anyway, I’m still trying to understand Spanish. And speak it. People have said that it will come after my training. Which is at the end of October haha. So I will definitely have to learn patience. The people here are so nice and really friendly. A lot of them are nice to me and try to help me with my Spanish. Or they are just really understanding that I cant speak the language haha.
There are these 3 boys (same family) that are planning on getting baptized August 30th and I’m so excited! Their family is seriously amazing. The youngest son, he’s 4, always comes up to me and hugs me, or he will grab my hand. And when I am speaking English to my companion, he will always just say, "en Español", haha. He doesn’t like it when I speak in English. Lessons are going a little better than the beginning. I used to just sit there a lot and testify after my
Okay, so literally everyone has a dog here. Or 5. Its crazy. Everyone. All you ever hear is barking. I haven’t eaten anything crazy yet, but I will keep ya’ll updated. I’ve actually had really good food here. I went to Burger King earlier today and it made me miss the states! I felt like I was back home! I’m excited to be here a little longer so that I can learn the language, and the culture more, and how to teach and stuff. Thank you all for your prayers, I definitely need them!
One thing that I have learn since being on a mission is that God is there for you for everything. Even the little things. He knows your desires, what’s best for you, everything. Look to Him in everything and you will be blessed and he will lead you in the right direction. And the Holy Ghost. What a blessing. I feel so blessed to have the Holy Ghost in my life. Read the Book of Mormon. That book is amazing. And Joseph Smith was a prophet. He saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. Do all you can to keep your faith as strong as it can be. I love you all!
