Hola Hola! Another week :)
On Monday (2nd October 2017) we went on an adventure and I literally died because it was so amazing. :) We went to Acayucon and saw the waterfalls! Guys. My heart was so full and I was so dang happy. It was SO BEAUTIFUL. And do I have photos to tell the story? No. :P We were going to buy our new cameras, but . . . we didn't get back in time. Sigh. But, take my word for it, it was honestly the most beautiful and peaceful scene of my entire life and I absolutely adored it. Plus, Hna Pèrez fell (all muddy and bruised, poor thing), so there was my laugh and justice for the day ;) On the way back, I sat with another sister and she talked to me about life and stress and sha lala and really helped me just to unwind and feel good. When we got back, we wrote home and it was great :)
On Tuesday (3rd October 2017) we had interviews with President! :) Well, first, we had district class, haha. Got ahead of myself. And I honestly can't tell you exactly what I said to answer a question, but it was completely silent afterwards and our district leader's face. XD "Que potente, Hermana . . ." It must have been something good. Then we all ate breakfast together at Little Caesers. Mexico is the only place that I will ever eat there. They make it right ;) We had a lesson with Ernesto, and I felt so free. Rather than worrying about the reprocussions (sp?) from Hna Pèrez, I decided to teach and follow the Spirit. It was a great lesson and I think we finally touched something with him. He doesn't want to change and feels like he did all his changing before and there's no need for more. But we're constantly changing. God is constantly molding us so we accomplish our purpose here. To become like Him :) So, we're never done changing; not even after we die and resurrect and receive our glory. We're contantly moving forward. Que awesome, right? Okay, then we had interviews with President and that's always the best. :) Good ole President.
On Wednesday (4th October 2017) we had zone conference! I talked with Hna Haws beforehand and afterhand, actually. I love her, and I realized just how much I love and appreciate my mom. :) My best friend, for reals. Oh, and the zone conference was honestly perfect. Super great, and it was good to see some friends too. (Guys, in this very moment, I totally spaced what I was talking about because the music is so great here where we're writing XD I know. Totally sinning, but it's just so nice XD) Okay, anyway, yeah. Conference, Mom talk with Hna Haws, and then we went to a lesson with Obispo Fred and Hna Angeles. We got thanked by the investigator for bringing light into his life . . . and that we've given him something that he is so grateful for. We haven't even gotten to the Plan of Salvation yet. It was amazing :)
On Thursday (5th October 2017) oh my gosh guys. This is so bad, but it's too funny not to tell XD So, because we're eating in an area (did I mention that we have 3?) a bit far away from our house, we get up in the mornings and head to the beach to study. ;P Don't know if that's allowed, but what's the worse that could happen? Well, I got the answer for you XD So we were sitting and studying together when a guy walked by and said, "Muy bien!" I didn't hear, but Hna Pèrez did and didn't understand until a sister told us that where we were sitting was a Gay Spot XD I died so hard. Oh, I also got a random massage this day, which was SO needed. It took all the energy out of me, so I totally passed out while Hna Pèrez got hers and some references. XD Then we were walking by the restaurant where we were going to eat because the creepy guy who wants to marry me was there (I could feel it in my gut), and a sister offered us water from her little stand where she sells who-knows-what. Miracles! :) then we ate food, and when we left, we walked pretty far to find a camion to take us to our appointment, and when we found one, we ended up passing the restaurant we'd been eating at XD And while we were waiting for the light to turn green, the driver and his helper were randomly fixing the mirror that fell off IN ORDER FOR HIM TO DRIVE AND SEE AND CRASH. XD He told me to smile in the mirror for him. :D Then, when we were walking, I saw through the fence two dogs and started calling for them, only to realize that they were statues. o.o good day . . .
On Friday (6th October 2017) we went to study at the beach again . . . AWAY from the Gay Spots. XD And just as we finished, we saw the sky turning pretty ugly, so we went to find some shelter from the rain. Just as we got to the OXXO, it started to rain SO DANG HARD. Miracles. :) Also, while we were walking to an appointment, an investigator who is a taxi driver pulled up and took us to our appointment, which turned out to be SO FAR AWAY. Miracles. Guys, this is a funny and very sad story. We were walking in the area, trying to find chamoyadas and I was about to just die because we couldn't find them. Then, I saw the store with big words that said, "CHAMOYADA" and my heart began to sore (I totally know that's wrong . . . but I can't remember how to spell). We went in and I ordered my chamoyada and . . . it wasn't a chamoyada. It was freaking garbage. I was so mad the rest of the day -.- don't mess with me and my food.
On Saturday (7th October 2017) we went on visits with Hno Frank and that went great, especially where I got to help a young woman with some problems she's having that are similar to the problems I was having with Hna Pèrez. We also had the wonderful opportunity to fast :) and just before we got the news of transfers, I heard Hna Pèrez tell another sister that she wishes that she can have another chance to work with me (ha, no. I'd rather eat another garbage chamoyada.) And, luckily, as an answer to my many prayers, we got the word of transfers. And I had to laugh, because in my interview, President told me that he was going to move me closer to the offices and basically closer to him. And he sent me to the place furthest from the offices in the mission XD he makes me laugh.
On Sunday (8th October 2017) we went to Boulevard and I played the piano for them. It was great, and I messed up a ton, but the Spirit was awesome. They were super grateful for it too, because there are hardly any people here who have musical talents that we take for granted in the states. Then we headed to 20 and I got to bear my testimony one last time :) It was awesome, because I honestly have a testimony . . . that has grown so much. Goodness. Then, we went to the AVO and picked up my companion (I totally did NOT realize she was my companion XD We both laughed so hard when I asked her "So, who's your new companion?" "Uh . . . you." "WHAT?!") and just worked the rest of the day :)
Her name is Hna Palomares, she's from Sanora, and she's honestly the bomb.com I feel like I'm with Wilson when I'm with her. 4 1/2 months of abuse and now, I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Woot woot!
And I can already tell you that we're gonna have so much fun XD because . . .
Today (Monday 9th of October 2017) my companion and I cuddled (remember that, Wilson? XD) before she and I and Hna Pèrez got ourselves all together to leave :) We left for the AVO, ate Burger King with the elders, and then Hna Palomares and I left for our autobus. We got all ready and whatnot, and as it turns out, she had the wrong passes! XD she confused our pass with the ones to come to Coatza! So, we had to leave and buy other tickets. Then, we got home (guys, I honestly adore our house. It's amazing!) and as we were leaving to write, I ran out with my flipflops! XD Yep, I'm a missionary. And you can totally see the tanline from it ;D We're going to eat dinner with some members and then get everything organized for the transfer! Guys, I'm loving it here and my drive to be a missionary is back! All because of the little miracles God gives me.
I can bear you my testimony that the hard times are hard, but they build you so well. I had 4 1/2 months of mental abuse from my companions, and it sucked so much, but now that I'm away from it all, I can see where I grew. I can see the benefits God wanted to give me. I can see that I'm a new and better person. I can also testify of the Book of Mormon. It honestly saved my life during these horrible experiences and provided wonderful ones in the process. I know it's true. I know it's what made me . . . me when I was home. I'm in love with the Gospel, and I know God is aware of every one of us. I love you all, and I'll talk to you next week! :)
