FASTEST WEEK EVER

This week has gone by faster than any other week BUT, I'm starting to think that maybe this week will go by even faster. We traveled almost everyday this week. We went to Quillabamba (the most beautiful place I think I have seen) and we were with the hermanas there doing work visits. I got bit by lots of mosquitos there! It was so fun. Then we went to Abancay (maybe the second most beautiful). That day we didn't get to go out a lot because the hermana that I was with got sick. So, we talked all day about the blessings of the gospel. Sounds boring, BUT it was so great! I learned so much and realized how amazing the Gospel of Jesus Christ really is. I feel so blessed to be apart of His gospel. Then we came back and it was Saturday already! LOOK how fast that week went by! crazy! 
 
We did have a lesson with ONE investigator and it was really great. She was a contact off of the street and it didn't really seem like she wanted anything but we came back and she let us in!!! She accepted what we said to her and she told us that she would come to church!!! I was so happy! This work really is the best and i feel so blessed to be here. I know that the Lord Jesus Christ is at the head of all of this work. I know that we are blessed when we do the right things. I think that the greatest lesson that I learned this week was about really being happy. Sometimes I think we make ourselves sad for no reason. NO ONE can really control our happiness.. Only we can! If we want to be happy, we choose to be. I like being happy. I know that the Lord wants us to be happy. It's like it says in the Book of Mormon that men were created to have joy! I love that. We can not control what other people do, so the best thing is to just have a great attitude.
 
I know that this Gospel is true. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and that I am where I am for a reason. I trust him 100%. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior OF THE WORLD. I am so thankful for the experiences that I have had in my life. They have shaped me to be the person that I am today. I'm not perfect but that's what we're all working for right?
 
I hope that you all have an amazing week!

Funny experience? Everyday of my life
This week we rode a bus that goes to Lima so there were lots of white people on the bus. Sitting next to us was a guy with really long blonde hair and it was super shiny and just really good hair, and in Peru there's not a lot of guys with long hair... like no one ahah, so my companion was cracking up so hard and telling me that his hair was better and way prettier than my hair. Haha my companion was comparing my hair with a guy...

Today was a crazy day. I picked up, dropped off, helped and just everything and without my companion. So, they were my companions for two hours, then I got new one every other companion.

I think this might be my last picture with Hermana M... (my best friend) I love her so much!
