April 25, 2016
My week was so fast! It was Monday and suddenly Friday and suddenly Monday again. Sounds way cool to see Ryan get married. Feels like I left when everyone is getting married! Just like everyone jaja.
I am loving the mission though. Right now is for sure the hardest part of my mission concerning stress and work and I have no time to even think sometimes. I have a pretty big district of 5 companionships so I spend my whole night talking to them. They are working so hard though so I am proud of them. We have a lot of baptisms planned for May and it seems that God is really blessing me with patience and understanding and help. Sometimes I am literally falling asleep walking jajaja. But i know he is watching out for me and we are being guided to those that need this message!
We are going to baptise this next week so that is pretty bomb! His name is H and his is a 9 year old whose family went inactive for a little bit, but we are trying to activate them and work with them. He is really cool and excited to get baptized! Then we have a 19 year old named C that is like crazy smart studying to be a judge that is progressing really well. I am excited to see him make this decisions and hopefulyl get baptised!
Other than that I am heading down to Xalapa... again ajajaja we have the meeting of the new missionaries tomorrow so we will be taking off in a couple of hours in a bus. I am really tired of traveling to be honest. This is like my 5th time taking this 5 hour trip and then 5 hours back. Should be fun though and we always eat really awesome when we go down there. So yay FOOD.
We also had our interviews with pres this last week and it was really awesome. Something he said to me really stuck in my mind. He said do not tire in good works. Sometimes i really feel like i just do not have the enrgy to keep going. But then I remember that this is the work of the Lord and that these good works will mean everything for that family around the corner or that sinner that needs these grand tidings of great joy. I am surprised everytime how much this gospel can change a person in a couple weeks and to see them in white and active in the church is everything.
