I want to start out this letter with a hugs THANK YOU! I am sitting in on the computer and I opened my email to 30 emails!!!!! I have received 2 letters from my mom and dad and many hugs through Hermana Jones! I am doing much better, but yesterday I was having a hard day and prayed for a reason to hang on. I walked into lunch and saw Elder Armenta (an elder that I had a little package for from home that I had brought with me from his friend to deliver to him) and I told him in Spanish that I had something for him, then he said no...I have something for you! I thought he was correcting my Spanish until he pulled out an envelope with my name and picture on it! Thank you for the letters inside and for the goodies in there! I know that was sent with so much love! Speaking of love, I did not know it was possible to feel love from thousands of miles away. Let me be the first to tell you, it is! I have felt so much love and support and it has helped me so much this week! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
There was an incredible thunderstorm this week and it reminded me of the storms in Fish Lake, I thought about how I wish I was there, then realized I cannot be like Lot's wife and look back longingly. I need to look back and be grateful for my supportive family and friends!! The power has gone out a lot, I guess that is because we are in Mexico?? haha!
I have the cutest teacher and she served in Talon's mission. She left the transfer after he got there. Another girl asked me if I have a brother in the Philippines and I told her it was my cousin. Her friend was his comp. I think! Small world!~
Last p-day was very hard, but I want to share my most spiritual experience yet! After emailing, I said goodbye, laid my head on the computer and did the hard ugly cry. Hermana Combs is an hermana that took me under her wings and watched over me because she has delt with homesickness like this too. She took me outside and just let me cry while she hugged me! My comp came and we were walking home while I was crying and I walked into the casa-house! and fell to my knees. I knew I could not do it alone. I prayed and Hermana Hughes who is a roommate came and said lets say a prayer together, so she said one and as soon as she finished, I had the biggest sense of peace since being here. I knew everything would be okay! I knew it would not be easy, but I also knew I would survive!! It was so incredible to feel the spirit take over my body. I felt like Jesus was sitting next to me rubbing my back and telling me it would be okay! We went and played volley ball and I started my eternal tan line! I got fried, but no peeps are telling me I look tan! I bought sunscreen!
I have been having a hard time with the stress, I am losing hair and still not sleeping. It is okay though, I can do it!
There was an intruder the other night! He jumped the wall and police were in here all night looking for him! So crazy!
Here are some bullets from my week:
-Gave my first talk in Spanish
-Sang in the ward choir for the first time
-My companion and I had a heart to heart and are doing great. She still burps, but I just ignore it.
-My heels are rubbed raw, I feel like I can almost see the bone, but that is okay!
Happy Birthday to Stephanie today!!
