|For you Mom|
I am glad it is finally getting cold out there! I secretly hope to come home to a huge pile of snow and just jumping in it will be the first thing I do! After hugging everyone of course ;)
I'm sorry that school started again, but just remember that every day is what you make it. I remember Mom would always yell out the door as we walked out, "Make it a good day!" and well, she's right! If we leave the house with our armor of God on (from prayer and scripture study) a smile on our face, it will all work out and we'll see the good in the day.
I feel like I have definitely learned that as a missionary. There are things that happen around us that we cannot control. But when we do all that we are capable of doing, fervently pray, study, fast, and do our part and use our gifts that Lord gives us -- then everything turns out just the way it needs to be and was planned to be. We are blessed with the gift of the Holy Spirit to be with us to guide and comfort us, as well as blessed with amazing family and friends.
"As we move forward into the future with quiet confidence, His Spirit will be with us. There is no end to His power to bless and direct the lives of those who seek truth and righteousness." -President Packer
I got a new companion, she is super new and right off the plane from the Mexico MTC and she's the bomb.com. Hilarious, laughs at jokes, works all day every day every second of the day! This past week together we talked to 300 PEOPLE! Talk about amazing! She's super styling and she bought a rice cooker, so we've got some good lunches in store for us. She teaches like a boss and already knows Spanish, so this transfer is going to kill it! We're ready to work miracles and find the people the Lord has been preparing!
We had a lot of other lessons, new investigators, and members to serve. People came to church, we stopped by an antiguo and SHE HAS A BAPTISM date! For January 24th and she is amazing! Missionary work seriously is the best! Love you all tons!
con carino, hermana day
