Mom I just have to say that i love you haha we are so much similar its crazy! All our funny accidents and failures of the days haha im glad im turning out like you because your an awesome mom! Im so glad that you shared those experiences with the ward and especially my testimony of Joseph Smith because really its something people need to strengthen with their own testimonies as members of the church because if we dont have a strong testimony of joseph smith then we cant have a testimony of the restoration of the gospel.
Also im glad you shared the story of hermana Paula. Her story is inspiring for me as well because through her trials and all her prayer and faith her husband was able to find amazing work and their financial situation is uch better now. Also She shared an experience where she was in the hospital with her dad for his sickness and had to stay awake all night long so she had a cup of coffee to help her and she felt extrememly sick afterwards. and before her conversion back in september she was a heavy coffee drinker and so for her to feel ill after this gave her a testimony of the power of god and how he can turn our strongest addictions into something that no longer has signigicance. So that was an amazing testimony builder for me.
We have changes this week so next monday i will recieve a new companion in the same area and im a little sad that Hermana Quispe is leaving but it just got to the time where you just get ready for change. In her interview with president hall she was told to prepare for changes and a new area which is rare for him to mention but it was good for us because we can prepare our last goodbyes and week together. I have learned so much from her and im so grateful for her help in changing me and my attitude and i look forward to learning more from another companion. Missions are awesome and i love where i am now and i love this work and as much as i miss all my family and life back home i wouldnt change this experience or this time in my life for the world. I am so excited for this mission and im excited to be able to share tiny bits of my everyday life with you guys and i hope that these emails help and encourage kyou guys and brings lots of love!
I love you all and am eternally grateful for the incredible family i have. Stay strong and always love unconditionally and continually strive to be a missionary of heart not of word! Love you all and praying for you always!
