I really don't have too much time to write today! I am now in my new area as of Yesterday. Today Hermana Bowers and I recieved the Hermana Moreno fresh from the airport. She is yet another super cute sister here who is ready to work! This time she the newbie is from Peru! It has been such a sweet experience already! We are also living with a new sister who is from Salt Lake.. learning spanish and getting the groove of everything out here in Mexico. It is all so awesome.
I am hoping in a few minutes to write you all a good letter about my week but for now! Just to tell you all! I am here, well, and happy!
Love you all!
ALSO I HAVE A RELEASE DATE.......
JULY 1ST!!!!! AHHH!!!!
Okay! Here I am
Wow. I just don't have too much time but I have a novel of things to write about. The week was crazy, sad, happy, wonderful, difficult... one I will remember forever. I saw a change in myself this week. I don't even know how to describe it all to you.
Of course the week that I have the most to say is the week I have the least time to write.
The week was a month long and I am hoping that the ones that follow can be the same. We just did so much. I woke up in the middle of the night one night with the WORST Charlie horse in my leg! I haven't had one since my training. It just must mean I am doing something right. I really tried to help Hermana Godoy get ready in the area for her and her new companion. Here's to hoping that they are good to go. But I know they will be, Hermana Godoy has such a good spirit that they won't be having any problems.
It was hard to say goodbye. The good thing is I am in the same stake still.. crossing my fingers to still run into the members over there from time to time in these next few weeks. Hermana Maria and Wendy made me these really cute homemade cards with photos from their baptisms that they gave to me. We all shared a sweet moment together. It was such a sweet moment, I love it when you can leave a ward knowing that your converts are in good hands and on the right road. Honestly. They are strong and going places and none of it goes to my credit. Because THEY wanted the testimonies, the callings, the baptisms, the spirit. It is beautiful.
A family I taught last year and taught their mom and baptized her.. Remi, I don't know if you all remember them. Well I saw them this week. They are preparing to be sealed in the temple! So of course I was on a spiritual high this week.
What else? Well, I am now here in Loma Linda. We have already seen a miracle. Hermana Bowers and Hermana Moreno and I were walking to our district meeting a man and his wife called out to us. We went over to talk to them. The man, Jesus, is a member less active and his wife and kids aren't members. He just flat out, up front told us. This is my family. I want to return to church, We want to hear your lessons and we want to prepare for baptism. We need help because we drink coffee. When can you come over.
We are going to visit them tomorrow. Honestly so sweet. I couldn't believe it. Actually I can. Hermana Bowers and I couldn't sleep last night because we honestly had like a hurricane hit our house (A HUGE FREAKING RAINSTORM) lightening and thunder SO LOUD. So we took the chance to talk about our visiones for the mission.. if we could have our "perfect" last 11 weeks in the mission how would they go down. The cool thing is we came to a perfect conclusion and understanding and determination to reach our goals.. no dudando nada. :)
So let's see what the Lord can do with me in these next 11 weeks.
I had a Leadership Conference and an interview with president this week. Both inspired me so much. President is inspiring and so hopeful honestly. It is awesome to work under his wing. It is weird being in this new calling I now report to the AP's and am in a district with 4 AP's and my companionship it is weird haha. But it will be a good learning, growing experience. I am not so good with responsibilities but I guess I will learn haha. They don't lie when they say that you learn everything in the mission.
Okay. I think that's enough for today! I love you all!
Oh and can you believe President gave me an arrival date..?!. He asked what airport I wanted to return to.. don't worry I told him Hawaii ;) haha
Just so ya'll know he gave me the option to extend like 2 weeks. But I promised him and the Lord and well all of you. That I am literally going to run my feet to the ground so that I feel that I can finish all that I need to in that time. I know I can.
Thanks for believing in me. I love you all!
