I can´t sleep at night, I wake up a lot and I am currently sick with a cold.
The food is gross, I have tried EVERYTHING!! I have not been full since I have left home, but I don´t really have an appetite, so that area is good.
Homesickness is a bugger. I cannot even handle it. I do not want to be homesick, but I can´t help it. I constantly miss warm hugs and happy smiles with people that I love. Mornings are the hardest because I can´t tell you all to have a good day. Sunday was the worst day because I was catapulted out of the numb state. Hermana Jones saw me and that is why she sent the pic to you. I was out of control hard ugly crying right before that!
My companion is very hard. We are so different yet very similar. She is 20 so she thinks she is my mother. It is very upsetting to me, but I pray to learn to love her everyday. Sometimes we just take a minute and be alone. I love going to bed because I feel no pain for the little bit I sleep.
In class we were studying 1 Nephi 1 and we were talking about faith, and the faith Lehi had to take his family and leave his home. I started questioning my faith after this discussion. I decided that I need to increase my faith in my savior, the gospel and myself. I want to challenge each of you to work on increasing your faith this week. I need to ask you to have faith in me. Right now I don´t even have faith in myself. I pray for each of you in every single prayer I say and that is a lot. I love you more than words can say and I am blessed to have you guys.
I love you all so much. Please pray for me!!

This was a little add on that Sabrina added on after her 1st email:
The week has been forever long. It seemed like an eternity. My bed is hard as a rock.
I walk at least 5 miles everyday here. No problem getting my 10,000 steps in.
Spanish is hard and I wonder why I prayed to learn it. I got a blessing the other day from the elders in my district and they blessed me that my spanish will come with ease and I just have faith that it will come. Here in el CCM they are teaching us how to learn spanish. We will learn real spanish in the field.
