Hi cute family, I am doing so well. I love being here and we had a great week, it seems as if I am not going to be having baptisms my last transfer, but I am actually really pleased with my work and the work of The Lord here in Tepeji.
I am really happy, I twisted my ankle yesterday pretty bad, but then I walked almost all day and I felt a lot better. I also got a lot better during the week from my brief stomach blast. I was dying last week exactly on Monday it started and I was throwing up until like Thursday.... but I decided to take a bunch of fiber drink to flush my stomach out, so that was really rough going but now I feel lots better.
I really like feel so so so blessed to be a missionary. To be honest, it took me a little while to truly love the work. There are a lot of hard things, and it’s not like those hard things have gradually gotten a lot easier for me, but I think that I have changed my attitude about life and really I am grateful to be here.
So really, I feel really excited to be home, but also like a big responsibility. It is hard to explain it well, but I think that it is just leaving things that you love, but even more so here. I mean leaving home is really hard, and adjusting to things is really difficult at times, but really I am so happy to have served and I think that the bitter sweet feeling is evidence. It is really cool but it’s like jumping into cold water. But, everything is going to be fine.
I really want to be different, and I want to change. I think that I have changed a lot in the mission, but I think that one thing that I would like to change is not worrying. It is definitely not the easiest sometimes, but I don’t want to be like that anymore.
I have been giving away my clothes... That sounds weirdJ!! I have been giving away all things that I am not using anymore. Thank you. I think that the only love that is greater than that I have for Mexicans is for my parents. I love u so much. I will really take that into account about the clothes. I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS TO SEE THE THINGS I HAVE AQUIRED FOR YOU. You will love them. They are really just little things, but they are beautiful!!
Well.. it is going to be a pretty normal week, I am really excited to work actually, I packed a bunch today, so we are doing all really well so far!
I know, I am really just excited to finish strong. I think that everything will go really well.
Really, thank you so much for your love and support. I think that the Lord really blesses us so much when we give ourselves over to him
Also, mom if you want to invite your family (tyler and jae) I would love to have them too. If not, well that is fine but if would be good to see everyone. I think that just being with you guys is going to be amazinggg. I am going to wear Mexican clothes off the plane, and that is all that is going to be said in regards to my clothing that day.
I am really excited to be home and really just happy with life. Remember that poem that I sent to you guys a long time ago...? I think its still one of my favorite things it says: Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be. So true, and I think better things are a coming!
