Be Careful What You Pray For
This week was weird... we lost a lot of working days... first because we had a training about family history which took up the whole day because it was a four hour round trip plus three hours of training and so yeah we lost that day. Also I got really sick and the mission nurse thougth I had a parasite so we went to the hospital on Saturday but they dont want to do the test because they dont think its a parasite and they told me to come back at like 6am today but I was feeling better yerstday so my companion and I decided to watch it and see. I will keep you opsted on that but the goods news is... I am pretty sure I will live.
Aura did not come to church yesterday but we had a nice family home evening with her and she is excited to read the Book of Mormon. We tried to call her to find out why she did not come and we could not get ahold of her so we are going to go see her tomorrow to see whats up.
I am also going to Volcan this week on exchanges to see if the cold will help my ankle. The heat is killing even the peole who live her in Puerto and a lot of people are getting sick and going to the hospital. Lets pray that the missionaries are immune to that.
This week I prayed to know my Savior better. I always want to laugh because it was a week full of trials in almost every sense... but we know that what doesnt kill us makes us stronger... I am sorry this is such a short email.. its just that we lost a lot of time because I was sick but yesterday when we were walking itn ehs treet we found a lady that knows the Bible forward and backward. I had the wonderful experience of beeing able to cite the scipture she was quoting and then respond with another scripture.. but we have to study really hard to teach her because she wants to have an educated discussion about what we teach so we are going to stay home today, study and relax.
Anyway, I love you all so much. I want you all to know that I know this work is the Lords work. That its true and that is the only way that we will ever be truly happy. Before I left on my mission I asked God to change me so that the people that I love most will not recognize me when I come home. I like to think that with all these trials who is doing just that. I still have a lot to learn. But its the process of life and I am grateful for all my experiences. The good and the bad.
Love You All,
