My mind is all over the place right now because we've been planning major goals and plans, and deep cleaning our house inside and out, so this email might be short....
Happy Mother's day to my wonderful family! It was such a joy to see everyone I love so much and to know that they are all progressing in the gospel. I love my family and I am so happy that I am sealed with them!
We had transfers yesterday and.... I'm staying in Macapule! 5 tranfers in a ward that I love and a ward that still has a lot of work to do. It was pretty great saying my "goodbyes" to all the people I have grown so much with, only to find out a few hours later that I'll be staying another six weeks (or more!) Haha I can't wait to surprise the ward leaders tomorrow at ward council when I ask them for a calling in the ward :)
Really, I am so happy that I get to stay here another transfer. Heavenly Father is teaching me a grand lesson right now, and it only makes sense that He finishes teaching me the lesson here, where it started, before teaching me another lesson. Heavenly Father knows exactly why I need to be here and I'm beginning to understand why I need to be here more, too. Heavenly Father has something amazing planned for each one of His children and it has been on my mission where I have been able to understand and realize this. The Plan of Salvation is real! Temples are Real! The eternities are real! Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are real people who love us! They are helping us every step of the way. Heavenly Father's promises are real! I am so excited to be part of this work and this glory here in Macapule! Miracles are soon to happen!
I don't know what else to say today... I am so happy that I can't describe my emotions in words. Life is too short to be unhappy, and the mission is too short to waste time on what's not important. I know this church is the church of the Living Christ, I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and I know that HE KNOWS how to help His children, we just need to let Him take the lead.
I love you all!
After arriving in Obregón for a leadership meeting last week, the bishop of one of the wards took us out to dinner. There were 11 of us in a 5-seater car! It's probably not the smartest thing we have ever done...
