Today marks six months in the mission and it only feels like one... or less. I´m not really sure. My sense of time is very.. very wacked. Anywhooo.. this week was amazing and so fulfilling. Everyday I am growing, stretching, learning and improving. Only through my Savior though. We have found SO many people these past two weeks and I am growing to LOVE this new area. It is beyond sad that I had to leave the other because I have a love for them that can never be replaced but my love for Juliaca is ever growing.
This week we had some amazing lessons with some amazing people. I felt the spirit so strong in all of them and I could feel the Holy Ghost guiding each one of these lessons. We are preparing one girl for baptism on the first of August and she is SO READY. She always comes with questions and everything. People like her are amazing. The people who truly want to learn and who truly have a desire to know. That´s her!!! We also taught an imense number of new people who just amaze me. Many people here know so much and there is so much that I can learn from them. Imagine how much amazing it will be when they can say, "I know the church is true and that Jesus Christ died so that I can live again with an eternal family." wooooo it just gives me the chills to think about it! I wish you could all meet the people here. So Amazing. So Wonderful. So Beautiful. I am learning so much from them and really I think that I am learning more than I am teaching...which really seems like a twisted thing.
I want to express my love for each and everyone of you. I know that I do in every one of these but you know what? We can never have too much love. Charity IS the pure love of Christ.. isn´t it? That´s one thing that we can all improve on no? I say I'm not going to stop loving until I can learn to love like Christ and God love. And so I would just like to express my love for you all. You are all so amazing and I know you are all sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father. I KNOW HE LOVES YOU, so much! We all have worth in his eyes and knowing this should give us a little more peace. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I have NO idea what I would do without you all. You are so amazing.
Do us a favor eh? Help the missionaries. They really have something special to share. Missionaries work miracles, change lives, and work wonders. I testify that two missionaries can make a world of difference because they are working right there with our Heavenly Father.
Love you all.
Tell your missionaries you love them. This work is hard! Very hard!
oh ps this is a pic of me returning to beloved Puno because we can come back once a change.
