3 months out... what?
I miss you all so much. But I am so happy and thrilled to be serving a mission. If you are ever missing me, which I know you are hehe please pray for us and the work. I really truly need as many prayers as possible to be able to do this.
The work is moving forward and we need to open our mouths! I have been studying a lot about charity lately because I need more of it. In Mosiah King Benjamin talks about serving people according to their wants. And it made me realize that we need to serve and love people according to how they receive and feel love. Not just how we like to feel it. The Savior would teach serve and love according to the individual, not just how He would do it. This has always been a problem for me so I am really trying to get better at it. Charity is the key to every relationship. Even hard ones. If we can show love in the way people need it, rather than how we want to show it, miracles will happen.
Our new missionary is Sister Poznanski! She is FROM FRANCE!! AHHHH She is so awesome I just love her! She is very happy and a joy to be around. But she is an english sister! Ah! So yes I am training 6 weeks out along with teaching Spanish. It is overwhelming. But if President and the Lord think that I can do this, I most certainly can. We had a lot of miraculous things happen this week. The elders gave us a referral and so we went to their house, and Alex the referral wasn't home, but her sister was! And her sister said this was an answer to her prayers and that she has been waiting for us! So she came to stake conference the day after and it was incredible! The Spirit was so strong and she loved it. We are VERY excited about teaching her. Also, after stake conference a man named Daniel just walked into the church and said I checked out Mormon.org and I want to learn more! So he committed to baptism so we will see! Very exciting! We have another miracle but I don't want to jynx it maybe I will tell you about it next week. We hda an incredible wee
HOLA FAMILIA!!!Wow what a week. So Sister Christensen left on Tuesday which was heartbreaking and I miss her so much. Luckily President is cool with her helping me train from afar so I get to call her a lot. I really miss her.
Love you all to the moon and back,
P.S. someone tell Erin/Eleanor that Pres. Dong is always talking about them. Thanks for the insider hookup and tell Taylor her family is great! (He is in our stake presidency down here)
