I have learned to love everything here so much. The people, the food-- EVERYTHING. The language gets easier and easier to learn, and the amount of words I retain and am able to put to use is unbelievable. Without the Lord, I don't think I would be understanding so much so fast. The amazing elders and sisters of District 109 are improving SO MUCH every single day. Every time I hear them speak, I am in awe at how fast they've improved! I am no longer the girl that knows a lot, I am now the girl who asks THEM questions about spelling and words! They are all so intelligent. Especially with the Lord on their side.
Its amazing to see how much truth is rolling forth out of my patriarchal blessing. Like.... SERIOUS GUIDE IN MY LIFE!! I find so much comfort in the words of the Lord. He is SO close. I can feel his love. Its so warm, so endearing.
Also If you get the chance, read Mosiah 14-16 and read the general conference talk by Jeffrey R. Holland from October 1999.
For those of you going on missions, or even if you're not-- READ El Libro de Mormon! DO NOT WAIT!! It contains so much light and love. PRAY ALWAYS. The Lord will lift you up!!
We found TRIPLE THREAT (E. Wallace, E. Bastian, and E. Beebee) doing synchronized diving. Yes. Synchronized diving. They didn't notice us they did the actual dive, but it was SO Funny. Last night, all of District 109 did it. It was surprisingly relaxing. Maybe we can get Hermano Chacon or Hermano Loayza to record it and put it on their FB's.
Fake investigators are doing fantastic, we committed them both to baptism, both have come to church with us, both have felt the spirit strongly and both are reading the BOM. It's awesome! They have such amazing stories. The incredible part? They were our teacher's actual investigators at a point!!! What?! :)
The Presidente is so funny! He is literally a turtle. His spirit animal is a turtle, in a bueno way though. He doesn't show too much emotion. He loves playing ping-pong which I find hilarious. One of the elders in my district challenged him to ping pong about 2 weeks ago and he said "We have 6 more weeks here at the CCM" all in a quiet, accented voice with literally no emotion. 2 days ago the same kid challenged him "What time is your P.A? I always come prepared to win" Just. So. Yoda-Y. Its Hilarious!
Thank you for your prayers! I can feel them! They keep me going and push me to do more. Be an example of the believers.
