Oh my goodness gracious!!!! I love this place with all my heart!!! I don't even have words! I've been thinking a lot about "ministering angels" and have come to the conclusion that they are also very happy (thousands of youth decide to be ministering angels for 18-24months). So it's okay to be a ministering angel forever, right? I'll just stay here and preach the gospel forever :)
Well, the last week of the transfer flew by incredibly fast. From trying to find new people to teach, to teaching the people we already have, and from trying to say goodbye to all the members before Hna. Ortíz finished her mission here to start another mission in her homeland, the week went by quickly and crazy. We got a surprise farewell party set up for Hna. Ortíz, so that was fun (I am loving these surprise parties! I think I've done 4 or 5 now here on the mission). We shed a tear, hugged a bunch, and now she's long gone :´(
But, on the bright side, my new companion is amazing!!! The Lord has blessed me to be with Hna. Mena, a short chilanga that is full of energy, spirit, and fun. I am more than excited!!! Also, two sisters in our zone are going to train!!! Hooray!!! I am so happy for them, the lucky girls! Also, Hna. Franco, my hermanita from the MTC, is here in our zone! This transfer is gong to be absolutely amazing!
This week, in terms of my dear friends, well, it's going to get better, that I know for sure. Esperanza, Kitzia, and Yaveel almost entered the waters of baptism on Saturday, but they are going to wait a couple more weeks. I still am holding onto the promise the Lord provides in DyC 103:12. All is going to be okay, we just need more patience and more faith. We've been on the lookout for more chosen people (los escogidos!) and I know that we will find them.
I was reading the Liahona for this month and found something that caught my attention. Elder Hales said, "Eternal perspective informs our daily decisions and our actions. It steadies our minds and souls. When persuasive but eternally flawed opinions swirl about us, we are steadfast and immovable." This really caught my attention, because it is so true. We have an eternal perspective as members of the church. Everything we do is connected to the eternities. Isn't that amazing? I'm so happy that we figured this out sooner, and not later. Thank you family for raising me in the gospel!!!
I love you all so much! I hope you have an amazing week and that many miracles are seen! Happy Halloween
