"If I pour this into my backpack and my himno is ruined, I can just lip sync from now on!"
"Where are the mutated dogs?"
"Hermana Petersen, if you eat this, I will give the datos every night for 2 weeks!"
I would like to report that now I pick up the half-dead chicken and as Hermana Petersen taught me, "Hermana Minnick, ya gotta suck to the bone. Clean the plate!" I have no problems anymore. What is a napkin? What is a fork? I don't know, they're non-existent in my world. Also, I have said "Ten second rule" one too many times in the past week!! So yes, Padres, a dollar a day so that one day I can have nice enough manners to get married. Gracias.I am acostumbrada. I look down during sacrament meeting to my shoes filled with dried mud...coooooool, it's great exfoliation. My body automatically wakes up at 6:10 without an alarm. The rain is my shower. The people laugh at my Spanish. Mosquito's love my blood. The fruit is to die for. The grass is greener, the sun shines brighter, and the church is true! I am acostumbrada and I love it. I am here because I know.
I have been called to represent my family and my Savior here in the area of San Francisco, in the zone Mazatenango, in the mission Guatemala Retalhuleu. What a blessing and a privilege I have! I have never felt so blessed, loved, protected, and happy. There are challenging times, times to test my faith and obedience. I will always strive with all of my heart to stand on the Lord's side of the line. I invite you to do the same! Don't let Satan attack you. Remember: Wickedness never was happiness. Don't make excuses! Never say, "I'll only do it just this once...one time won't hurt." No! Take your stand. Be obedient, think clearly, pray for the spirit to guide you! I promise you that if you are doing the small and simple things, you will be protected and guided by the spirit! Remember your worth! You are important and your purpose is clear if you center your life around our Savior.
Last Saturday the Chavez family was baptized. I love them! I didn't know it was possible to love my investigators like this. I have seen this family gradually center their lives and home in our Savior. What a difference it makes. I now understand the meaning of the word "joy".
|The Chavez Family, minus Flora my abuelita...she will be baptized this saturday! This family is my heart.|
I LOVE YA!!!!!!
