Dakota is going on a mission and will be gone before I get home hmmm life happens I guess.
Me and my buddy Elder Grundvig were reminiscing about the mission and it kind of blew my mind how much time has really passed and everything that we have done. Things are just going to be different at home. Like the new me is going to have to find its place in the new-old world that I left behind. Something I am genuinely worried about is to make so many decisions about myself. Like I don't make many self affecting decisions here, its all about other people and I almost always am thinking about others. Suddenly I will have to think about myself. Strange.
But while the mission still lasts I am good so yay! Another week went by, full of work and things but just well another week. I guess its just the rhythm that I have now. The days just blend and suddenly its Sunday. See lots of the same people and then keep on seeing them for the next 5 weeks. The good thing is that I really enjoy Vega de AlaTorre. Its one of those little pueblos that just is fun and small. I know like almost everyone by now and just seem to be saying hi all the time to old investigators and members.
In a world conference for missionaries they changed a bit our pday, so we can leave a bit earlier from our studies and then gave us a bit more room to plan our day effectively. So, we can plan in the morning not at night. We can now go to bed if we choose from 9:30 to 10:30 soooo woooo more time to sleep. jajaja I also got a talking to for not writing in my journal so I will try to see what I can do for these last few weeks.
I confirmed Maria yesterday and she is doing so amazing. Already is working on her family history and is preparing to go to the temple come February! She is really cool and really wants to prepare to seal herself to her husband that died a while back.
Other than that just keeping on working. We had like 6 people in church yesterday and they seem to be progressing really well for this next month or early March so yeah woo!
Well ya thats me right now. jajaja I really am getting tired of writing every Monday. jajaja Maybe I'll just send you I am alive for 11 weeks until l I get home ;)
