I hit 2 months yesterday! Holy cow how is that even possible. I can`t believe I`ve been out that long. It`s crazy to think that I only have 8 more of what I´ve done so far. Time FLIES in the field. Each week goes by so fast. Before I know it I`ll be home. Which is so scary. Time can go by fast now cause it`s hard and I can`t speak Spanish, haha, but I know that once I can speak Spanish I won`t want to leave.
This week was so so great. By far the best week of my mission so far. Ive still been a little sick, but this week was awesome. And my Spanish has gotten infinitely better. So many members or just people that we`ve met with multiple times have commented on how much better my spanish has gotten. Such a blessing.
all the new missionaries got to go to the mission home to have a little reunion with our CCM group. It was so great! It was so great to be able to talk to the missionaries that I grew so close to in the 6 weeks that we were in the CCM. And we got to talk to President and his assistants and got a ton of great advice. And we ate HAMBURGERS. Like good, fat, american style hamburgers. I had been craving a good burger for months. Haha. Anyway it was a great day and it was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits and cheer me up after having a rough week last week and being sick.
This week we spent a lot of time with members of the ward which was great. We have such a great, strong ward. All the members are so kind and make me feel so loved and welcomed. And they`re super patient with me with my Spanish.
And then 2 of our investigators came to Sacrament meeting this week! And 2 less actives! Hallelujah. And it was the Primary Program which was so cute. Here when they have the Primary Program the kids do the announcements and prayers for sacrament meeting and it was adorable.
After church we went over to a member`s house for lunch with the other Hermanas (there are 4 sister missionaries in our ward because our ward boundaries are so huge, and we do a lot of stuff with them, they`re great) and the food was delicious. This is what Hermano Mercado put on my plate and I promise I`m not exaggerating:
A huge steak, 3 chicken breasts, a big fat sausage, a potato, a sweet potato, and salad (carrots and broccoli with a buttload of salt and lemon juice). I am so serious. It was a struggle. And we drank probably five 3 liters of Inca Kola (they drink more Inca here than water. It tastes like bubblegum cream soda). Anyway it was great.
Overall just a great week! I`m grateful and happy and loving the work!
Also if you want to send me a letter or your favorite General Conference talk or something you can ask Brooke or Barb for my mailing address. And I´ll love you forever.
