Hey family and friends, I am here to announce that I have officially left the good ol´South, Choluteca and hit the mountains! I am now in Danli and its a mix of the city and the south region. Its just like my first area! Just besides that fact that this area is a lot more poor, and its more city like. Our mission has 3 regions and they are all so different from each other. This week was full of so many challenges, but in the midst of them, I got to go to the temple, meet another amazing comp and listen to our beloved Prophet and leaders to be spiritually filled for the next 6 months. I LOVED general conference! And I am sure that everyone who watched it felt the same.
SO this week I hit my year mark! Wooh hoo!! well...I spent the entire day sleeping because I got really reallyyyy sick. But the cute hermanas here brought me a cupcake and it made everything better! Its been a year full of many things:
A year being Hermana Woods, Boots, and Goods
A year full of drinking out of bags of water
A year full of washing my clothes by hand
A year full of speaking, praying, and singing in only spanish
A year full of making best friends
A year full of helping seeing lives change
A year of only communicating with my family and friends via email
A year without technology, music and iphone apps
A year with studying the Bible and the Book of Mormon daily
A year getting to know my Heavenly Father
A year representing our Savior Jesus Christ.
It has really been the best year of my life! I have so many more experiences ahead of me in these last 6 months. These next few will be full of challenges, but I am ready to take them head on! I have the worlds best support team. I have Jesus Christ by my side. What else do I need? I love it here and I wish everyone could have an experience like this!
Thank you for all the love and support, here´s to a better week and more miracles! Until next time :)
