I don't have much time to write but.... So this week my companion and I were matched up with a Latina and we went contacting!!! I shook hands with a man who was digging through the trash. And, I got eaten by flys and no one else was... I spoke a little Spanish but not much. I felt more love for strangers than I EVER
have before. I can quite literally feel the true love of Christ
flow thru me for these people! Yikes, it's so cliche but it's SO real.
I may not have said a lot, but I felt so much! These bug bites are killer!
dumb flys. I seem to be the only one that the bugs like. -- so last night some of the
sisters went downstairs in their PJ's to practice a song for Sunday and the Pres
came down and got upset with us for having a PJ party... oops... I had
no idea. I was following the crowd and they said they had permission. Jaja So last
night my dream was that my roommate was in trouble and the pres came in and I said don't tell me you're in trouble. She said she was and he started to sing
about how terrible it was and that she had to go home, and he continued to
sing and roll around on the floor. Weird I know... plus he was a black guy
and our Mish Pres is like soooo white with super white hair... I've
been dreaming a ton. The other night the girls in our room were talking
about how there's no hope... everyone (girls) gets fat on their mission. So my dream that night was that my mom said I was fat and that my
brother got called to a Utah mission. haha random.... anyway!!! ---- I miss playing my
trombone sooooo much! like way back when I had a normal life, I knew I was at
least kinda good at something... and now... I'm not so sure. I miss
music! Last Sunday I sang a solo in church with my old comp on the piano, so in the fireside this week the Latinas came up to me and asked if
I'd help out in their musical number. Violin, piano,
Latinas and Latinos.... I couldn't hold it in, I laughed while I was up there.
It really was good... but if you've heard Latinos sing before,you
may know that most of the time they need a little help from above.
The Spirit is there though! And it's admirable, their desire to sing..
Of course I'm a giant and everyone saw me laugh during the song. I
felt dreadful. Good thing I had my
back turned to the President.---- Yesterday my companion and I
finally felt like we have hope at being real missionaries....
seriously,we've felt like terrible mish. BUT Our Father in Heaven finally
gave us the strength and allowed us to use our ability of inviting the Spirit
and teaching. Finally we were able to be successful, now if only we
could start over with our other investigators and do better with them. A 2nd chance! please!!! but I guess we'll just have to see where we can
take them from here. Okay, they're kicking us off!!!! blahk! love you
all!!!!! sooooo much!
