Stay Faithful

God knows our efforts and if we continue with faith, we are going to receive the blessing. Something they told us in Relief Society this week just came to my mind: Sometimes we are need of a want or a blessing, and God sees our faith and says, okay, if they stay faithful for 5 weeks, I will give them the blessing. Then 4 weeks go by of faithful prayers and fasting and we give up saying that God doesn't answer prayers. What we don´t know is He was right there waiting to give us the blessing, we were the ones that gave up. Maybe I didn´t really explain it to well in English, but you know what I mean. I hope.

A Good Laugh

The ward in my new area is super amazing! They have really strong testimonies. There is a little Grandma MC, and she is seriously the cutest little thing. We visited her this week and then later we saw her el domingo... I mean Sunday, haha. And she told me, Darling, the first moment I saw you, I loved you! I thought of cute Nana and gave her a great big hug. I love the Mexican culture because they are all so loving.

In Barrio Pioneros

I was so happy to see you yesterday. This time was less painful... like it didn't affect me as much. It made me really happy and animated to work hard. And next time we talk, I am almost home! What in the world?  It is all happening too fast. 

Well I am here, transferred in barrio Pioneros. (pioneers) I am excited to be here. I mean it is a way different area. Really well off and everything. But I know that we are going to find exito also in what we do. I love the missionary work. Even though it´s hard. I have a feeling that this will be a good cambio. My companion is awesome. She is my first companion that isn´t Mexican or American! She is from Honduras! She is funny, and I think we are going to have exito this transfer. I always need your prayers to help me get along with comps, haha. But I am feeling that HF is helping me be more patient every day so that´s good. With myself and with others.

God Loves Us Perfectly

Less than a week and I get to talk to you. I don´t know about you but these last five months went by so fast! I am so excited to talk to you again. Sometimes I struggle in the mission because I don´t like my weakness. I know, I know, who likes their weaknesses, right? But really it was such a sweet experience this morning because my amazing companion lifted me out of a really hard spot! I am so grateful for these 2 cambios that I have had with the hna R... I really hope that by some miracle we can stay together another transfer. But it is whatever the Lord has in store.
