we had district meeting and it was good. We celebrated a birthday of and Elder who is from Utah and then we had the best lesson with Bryon, an investigator that is super pilas and he is just the best. It makes me really happy that he is progressing and everything!- we washed our clothes and they smell so good, I am going to be super happy when I can wash my own clothes whenever I want! I miss having clean clothes! :) We also had a meeting with the branch and I had some great ideas and I really love this branch that I am in and the members told me that I cant leave because they need me!- I hit 17 months today and it was really hard for me because it made me trunky or baggy how we say it here. But you know, its how the mission works. I hope that I enjoy this last month here that I have!- we contacted a lot and we were able to work a lot and I love it so much! It makes me really happy to have a good day with lessons that really helped us to help our investigators. I love my investigators and everything!- Today we had a stake activity and it was really good. I was able to see the a YSA from my old areas and it made me really happy. I love them so much!!! :) It made me miss my old areas like alwys.- We had 2 really great classes that I taught in church. It was hard but you know, thats what I get when I am president and the sister that knows everyone in the branch! But my companion was sick and everything so that was sad but I was able to teach a little bit and everything. So that made me really happy!
Well I am glad that things are good back home and that you guys are getting things ready for me because I am getting ready for you guys too!!! :)
On monday we played dodge ball as a zona and it was a lot of fun! I really liked it but you know I was dying of a heat attack but thats how it is here in Guatemala.
OH I FORGOT TO TELL YOU GUYS.... I AM THE RELIEF SOCIETY PRESIDENT HERE IN THIS BRANCH. AND MY COMPANIONS ARE MY COUNCILORS AND IT IS REALLY INTERESTING. AND VERY HARD.
WEll that was my week and I am glad that you all know when I am coming home. Yes it is theat 4 in the afternoon....
I love you all!
I think that it would be a lot easier if I started writting you guys before I started to respond to my friends. How are you guys doing?
Well mom, I am glad that you are teaching funny phrases to the twins. That sounds like a lot of fun and that you are liking it. I sure hope that they have funny things to say. If you want to teach them something really funny teach them somethings in spanish like A la Gran or Pilas. Its really funny!
Dad, you are so active! I love that and maybe one day I will be able to do one with you. Something that we say here is primeramente dios and that means god first. Everyone says that when they dont want to put a specific day with us to go back to visit them. So primeramente dios jejeje
Well this week was a pretty great week.
Monday- We helped a brother from the branch get the guts to buy a ring for his girlfriend. She is also a member in the same branch and I love her so much. They are so cute together and we are planning on helping him propose to her!!!! I am excited!
Tuesday- We got a lot of references to contact and I am excited to do a lot of wrok here in Tactic! I love the mission!
Wednesday-It was my companions special day because she hit 9 months in her mission so we bought a cake to celebrate. But my other companion got really sick so we had to go home and she slept a lot. But I was able to study and talk to my colochita and I love that.
Thursday- We had zone meeting and it was really good. This week was the week of the town fair so we decided to put a table up and pass out folletos and cards and it worked really well. We played some games to see who could pass out the most folletos and I didnt win because I was dying because I have a cold but you know, its okay.
Friday- We contacted more today but it was raining so hard that we were stuck in a building for about 2 hours! It was pretty fun because there is a new guy in my branch that tells me everything about the states and it makes me baggy but you know, its okay because I will be able to know things better when I get home.
Saturday- Today I had a HUGE Asthma attack and I was put on bed rest. It was really hard for me not to be able to work but the nurse told me that I need to buy another inhalor to help me and I am going to keep in chill that way I will be able to come home when its time for me to come home.
Sunday-today was a lost day because I was sick and my companions didnt want to take me out to work in the rain, it was a good idea. But I am really excited to do all the things that we didnt get done this next week!
I love the mission so much and I am so happy that I am here! :)
I love you all!
I am so sorry that my emails are getting really short. Its because I am trying to do everything at the same time and it is really hard for me.
Well this week was a really great week. We got our new companion and her name is Hermana Bueso she is from Honduras and she is really cute. I was pretty scared to be with her because she heard a lot of rumors about me and she didnt want to come with us but we talked everything out and she is way chill. We got to work and it was really fun.
Something that I have learned from her, Hermana Bueso, is that we need to contact more. This week we really put that in practice. We all took 10 folletos to contact and we had to give them all away. The last person that does it has to buy ice cream. Lets just say that I have not bought ice cream yet and I am glad of that. I love to contact!
Something happened this week and I am so thankful for the miracle that we had. At church we had our investigators that have baptism dates and they all understood the importance to go to church and to be baptized. I just hope that they follow through. Its really funny and everything.
I am sorry but I dont have a ton of time because the time goes by so fast and I am always laughing to much with my family and everything! I love this work so much and I am lucky to be here at this time! I love my life so much!!!
I love you all and this week I will write out all the things that happen so I can write it all out in my next letter! I love you all!!! !
How are you guys doing?
Well this week was a good week. We had a great district meeting where we learned more about the atributs of Christ and it helped me to think more about it and how I need to change. This week I put in practice love. It was hard because something terrible happened and I was really sad but I put it in practice and I am glad that I am learning more about the atributes.
This week we also did a lot of service. I am so glad to be here as a missionary helping those around me fill the love of God.
Well I found out that I dont have changes but I am going to be in a companionship of 3. I am really scared for it because I dont want to have any problems but you know I am excited to learn a lot and do be able to divisions more with the members.
I love this work and I am excited to be here and to do the work that I am called to do. This is the true church and I am so thankful for it.
I know that this is the true church and that we are here to learn a lot about this wonderful work.
I would like everyone to read joshua 1:5-9. I love this scripture. Its great. Well I hope that you all have a great week and that you all learn a lot.
Love you all!
Oh and we went on a zipline. It was dope!
Well I dont have a lot of time but I just wanted to let you know how I am doing. This week I am able to send you guys a couple of photos. One is me with really yummy food. A sister always gives me a ton of food when we go there and she knows what I like. The other photo is I tried a really gross drink that I hated. I tried it and I couldnt finnish it but you know, its sucks! But it doesnt matter. I tried it. The other one is of the baptism that we had this week. It was perfect. I loved it and he shared his testimony during the service and he thanked us for helping him change his life. It was so sweet and I was crying hard core.
I love this time that I have to be a missionary. This time is the best time to be serving God. I love it and for all the things that I am learning. LAst week I was reading a lot of the Book of Mormon and this week I continued but I also focused in the general conference talks. I love learning more about the prophets and knowing the things that they want us to do.
I have learned a lot here and its been really fun! I love this work and I also love you guys a lot. I miss you always but I am glad that be here right now. I know that I need to be here.
I love you all so much!
