I don´t have a ton of time to write but I will try my best to type fast! So I forgot to mention last week that it turns out Hermana Morán and I met before the mission! We realized it one of the first nights when we were getting ready for bed. We kept feeling like we had seen each other before. Turns out we went to EFY together back in 2011! Haha! We weren't in the same group or anything but we sang together in the choir! What a small world we live in! My companion is awesome! I attached some pictures so you can all finally see what she looks like but we´re the same height so that´s fun. All the people here like to stare but that´s alright it makes contacting a lot easier :)
It rains everyday here and the bugs are up and moving always! It´s a lot more tropical here but I have yet to see any cool birds or rare animals. Unless you count the frog on my door the other night.
The work this week was a bit different. It´s hard to summarize in an email my week and my thoughts are a bit scattered but I hope what I have to share will make sense to all of you.
I´m not really sure where the time went but we experienced a lot and learned a lot of new things. The mission truly is a conversion process, and I have learned during my short time here what a blessing it is to have the true Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. I can´t imagine my life being any different and I am so grateful to have had the blessings that the Gospel brings in my family my entire life.
Prayer is real. God answers us when we speak with Him. I have never felt that more strongly in my life than I do now.
The calling to be a missionary is so special. I have learned more about my calling as a missionary this week. As we work to bring others unto Christ, we too come unto Him. As we strive every day to be better and be more like Him, we will see miracles. I know that is true with all of my heart. There are guardian angels watching over and protecting us as missionaries. I love this work. I love the change I see in the eyes of my investigators as the Spirit testifies to them that what we are teaching is true. It is truly the best feeling in the world to be a missionary! We should all decide to be missionaries every day of our lives! Everyone needs the love of our Savior Jesus Christ in their lives. Don´t forget to share this love with the people around you! I put a quote in the back of my planner to remind me during the day to talk to the people. "They are your brothers and sisters, TALK TO THEM" This has helped me so much and I have seen miracles! I invite you all to remember this in your day to day lives and talk to your brothers and sisters this week about the blessings you've seen in your lives from the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
