How are you guys doing? So yeah wow what a week!
I have been reflecting on just how crazy it has been being a missionary here and all that has happened. And wow, it has just been the craziest experience. Living in a foreign country for over a year, learning a new language, working everyday 24/7, with comps with scriptures, learning about Jesus Christ and most of all, serving God. WOW, I am tired! haha but oh so good.
It has been a humbling and actually really better week. These past few weeks have been really hard, but things are getting better. Actually, things have been a lot better. With my comp things are getting better, sooo much better, and truly just killing with kindness, that’s the goal. And even if you aren’t feeling it, fake it till you feel it. I know I have learned a TON by this experience. And also with this ward.
And I love this quote, I actually don’t remember it fully but it’s like, “man’s extremities are Gods opportunities”, something like that. And I feel like that’s true that when we are in our darkest or deepest, or hardest moments, that’s when we find God, that’s when we find strength, or a new perspective, or hope. But I also feel like that only works, if we look for it. IF we truly search for him, for his love, ask for it. And I believe that, I have learned that and felt that, I have felt him carrying me when I feel like I can’t do it. I just know that he is real, because I have felt his hand in my life, I have felt his love carry me, even when I couldn’t go on.
So yeh, HE IS REAL. So many people doubt, soo many people, and its soo much easier to doubt in reality. And although I don’t know everything, I do know that God is real. That I just know it, and I have so much more to learn, but he is real. So boom.
Other than that, we had a good week. We had a talent show, btw, Chileans do not have any talent in singing haha at all. it’s rough. But it was fun, we had like 30 people come, haha yep. But it was good, I just danced in the back where no one was watching, haha just hardcore interpretive dance, you better believe it
It’s been good going on divisions and getting to help other missionaries, I really have learned a ton. And also we had interview s with our new president. He is DOPE! Him and his wife are just the sweetest, just super awesome! Super chill too. And just loving. We had interviews and he is just the man. And also they came to our house one morning and gave us breakfast, no joke! Just awesome!!!
Soo I have some new goals and I am really excited! Some are to read the book of Mormon once again and mark all the attributes of Christ, not sure why but I really thought it would be cool! Another is to get up at 6:30 KILL ME!! haha yep, here we get up at 7:30 and go to bed at 11:30 in our mission, so I am trying to get up earlier, do exercises (rough) and get more study time. So we will see how that goes. I am super tired but hey, all is well!
GOD IS GOOD. He is real and he loves us so much. I love you all!!!
