Hola mis queridos!! Como estamos?
Okay, I don’t know how much time I really have to write, so I’ll be pretty brief....or so I say now jaja vamos a ver.
So to start out...voy a tener una hija!!!! :) Or in other words, I’m going to train!! It’s super crazy to me! I still don’t know who she is because at 5:30 tonight we’re going to the mission offices in order to meet them and have President tell us who they are. I’m so nervous but at the same time I’m super excited :) Last night saying goodbye to Hermana Gomez was super rough. I love her so much. I totes cried. She is one of my greatest friends. I already miss her so so much! :( And the capa is now senior companion in super capital! :) I’m so proud of her. She has taught me and helped me so so much!! :)
Sunday was the despedida of the missionaries that are going home this transfer. I have two companions that are going home this transfer. :( Mi mamá, Hermana Centeno, and my second companion, Hermana Quintana. I was pretty sad to have to say goodbye to them. They have helped me out so so much. It’s crazy to think that they’re really going home. Like they won’t be in the mission anymore. I won’t be able to see them at mission conferences or activities. Wow. I could cry thinking about that. New subject.
Oh yeah, I forgot my cord for my camera so I won’t be sending pictures today from my birthday. But it was a really great day! We visited with the members a little bit. Ate lots of cake and ice cream and pie and we just had an awesome time! They all really made me feel at home ya que no estoy en mi casa. It was a really great day!! :)
Basically my mind is super jumbled because I’m nervous and thinking about 100 mil cosas. Que digo? Bueno, umm....fun story. Hermana Gomez and I had a nice little conversation in Spanish while we were sleeping the other night. The sound of our voices woke me up. How weird is that?? Jajaja! Too funny!!! :)
Okay, no se mas. Life is good here in San Fernando. It’s crazy to think that I have 11 months. It’s the craziest thing in the world to me! I’m just loving the mission so much. Its crazy the love that I have developed for this work. There is nothing like it. Nothing at all. I’m so incredibly grateful for this opportunity of a lifetime to serve with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I’m also so so grateful for every single one of you for the support you all give me. I am so incredibly blessed I can’t even believe it. Thank you so so much! Also, please pray for me. I’m really going to need it as I try to help una nuevita learn the ways of the mish. Once again, nervous and excited. Remember, when we love the way the Savior does, miracles happen. And of course, Stay Anxiously Engaged!! :)
