THE PACKAGE: wow. even before the day began i was the happiest i had been in a while and didnt know why. then, when i got the package i was happier than harry potter when hagrid told him ¨¨Yer a wizard árry¨¨ for realz on cloud nueve. Special thanks to all those who had a letter in there, tears of joy at night reading all of them.
My health....well lets just say this week i have been grateful that i have never really been the girl to be embarassed of things the body can do. A lot of people have a fear of pooping when other people are around in the restroom. I think heavenly father knew i would be fine here for this reason. I didnt know a body was capable of making such ungodly noises but i have no shame whatsoever. I am doing much better now though. Thanks for the prayers, they are much appreciated.
FANY!! This girl is 13 years old and we have taught her 2 times and she has already shared scriptures in the book of mormon with a friend and asks questions like how can i be better and who is moroni. She was able to come to conference ( hallelujah) #blessed. First speaker was Elder Anderson who spoke of joseph smith and the restauration of the gospel. #doubleblessed She said afterwards, It was so beautiful and this conference answered a lot of my doubts and questions. Now I know that joseph smith actually did see heavenly father and jesus christ and that moroni was a prophet in the americas. \people like this are the reason i love being here in Arequipa.
Struggles> hmmm some days i dont talk much which isnt like me and then i get bugged at myself. some days the little things bother me, but everytime i have things like this happen i am just grateful to pray. like 100 times a day. at least. I felt like my spanish decreased this week which is something that probably needed to happen to push me to be better this week.
Watching conference made me alittle homesick for a nap after the afternoon session, but we went to work and met Ivan. Who is a friend of Rolando the less active we have been teachign. We taugh just about everylesson because he asked questions for straight 2 hours. it was awesome. smiles so big our cheeks hurt. everything from the law of tithing to kingdoms of glory. he even asked what do i need to do to live with god. HOLLAR BAPTISMAL COVENANTS!!
love conference. everything that was said i knew someone we were teaching needed to hear, including myself. I need to take the sacrament mindfully. Luff all the talks.
Love you all more than people love feeding cake to missionaries!!
Seriously this ward is the best i love them!
Have the best day everrrr. much love from the boiling hot desert arequipa peru
