Week 73 - Nervious
Hola familia :)
I love you guys so much!
This week was really good!
On Wednesday we knocked on the door of a woman named Alejandra. We showed her the video Gracias a que El vive and she totally cried! We put a baptismal date with her and she is really excited. It is weird because I am starting to put the baptismal dates for after I finish my mission. weird.
On Thursday we had a party with the relief society. Mayrena came! She is so cool! Her kids will be baptized this friday. She wont be baptized until the 26th of December because she is taking classes of beauty on weekends! But, she goes to all of the activities during the week.
On Viernes we went on divisions! I got to go to la viña with Hermana Aguirre! She is the best! She is a nurse... I told her that I am going to study phlebotomy after the mission and she taught me how to draw blood. I am sure that wasnt really super appropriate for the mission... but, It was cool. In two weeks I will show you guys the video. She told me that I will be really good at drawing blood from people because I found the vein right away and didnt leave a mark. That was cool.
On Sunday we met a crazy woman that kept talking about the ark from the temple of saloman. She says that the united states thinks that she has it. But, she really is just crazy haha but, it got me thinking.. I know that Gods plan is to bring to pass the inmortality and eternal life of man... but, why this? Like how did this all come to be and why is that the plan? We had dinner with the bishop of my ward here on sunday night and he told me that sometimes it is better just not to ask certain questions. We are here by faith and we just need to go forward with faith.
I am really sad that my mission is coming to an end. I had my last zone activity today. It was so much fun. I got teary eyed during lunch because I am really going to miss the mission.
I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives. The knowledge of my Savior, that He lives, is the most sacred and valuable thing I have learned on my mission. I only desire to do what He asks of me. I might fail... but, at least I can live with the assurance that I am doing my best. Doing our best is all He asks of us, so let us be our best person!
I love you guys! I will send pictures next week!
