received a letter from a random Elder serving in the Sacramento
mission. At first I was confused because I don't know anyone serving
in that mission, so I open it and find a picture of these two elders
and their mission president and a RM dating application with the
craziest of questions. Well, one of my last STL's finished a few weeks
ago and what do you know her hometown is Sacramento and we wanted to
get this Elder busted because it was way inappropriate. So she ends up
having connections with the mission president and turns out the two
Elders that were doing it were Assistants and they got chastised and
what not. It was funny... And creepy!
This week has had awesome highs and sad lows. 3 Elders just got sent
home, one of them being our pretty good friend. It's heartbreaking. I
couldn't even imagine leaving my mission at this point. I absolutely
love it and it has become a big part of who I am. I am so grateful for
the Atonement though, and I believe what I teach. With faith in Jesus
Christ, we can be healed, no matter how serious or hurt we are. This
is the message I am sharing with people. Marianna has fully accepted
Jesus Christ in her life and she is getting baptized this Sunday. She
continues to amaze me and it seems as if she has always lived the
gospel without being in the gospel. (I am not sure if that made sense
to anyone but myself) She is a miracle. Missions are filled with
miracles, I seem them everyday. Ahh our Heavenly Father is so mindful
of us. I'm grateful for his love and Spirit.
Transfers are in a week and I am getting a little nervous. I have been
in this area for almost 1/3 of my mission. At this rate I will only be
serving in 2 more areas. I also absolutely adore my companion right
now. We are completely different in every way, except for our love for
Mexican food we agree on that, but we are the greatest of friends.
Funny how that worked out.
I wish I had more to say, but my mind is going at a gazillion miles
right now. Everything is going great and the weather has been perfect,
especially for bike riding! Woo! Saddle up the iron horse!
Also, I can't send pictures this week because the libraries are closed.
Con amor siempre,
