Hey there family and friends! Today has been a rough day. We had troubles in the internet cafe and I couldn't write earlier today. But here I am alive and working really, really, hard.
This week I worked harder than I have in my whole mission. I felt like I had kind of lost my will and energy to work the past two weeks and so this week I told myself that I was going to work harder this week than I ever have in my life. And I did!! That is the best feeling in the world, you know that? When you set a goal and you accomplish your goal, it really is the best. I really had this desire. I wanted to work really hard and, we did, we worked really, really, hard. I am soooo tired!! I have never been so tried in my whole life. But it is the best feeling in the whole world.
Today I have been thinking about what I was going to teach about in District meeting. I am going to talk about the Holy Ghost - how important he really is in our lives. I talked with a recent convert about how important the Spirit is in our lives. It really is so cool how a recent convert understands the importance, sometimes more than people who have been members their whole lives. They sometimes understand better than us because they have gone years without him as a gift. He is vital in our spiritual progression. Without Him, we CANNOT return and live with our families and Heavenly Father again.
This week was really good. We found a few new people to teach and that is always really very exciting. I love this work, and I love my Savior. I am so happy to be here in Peru. It is cool to look back on the person that I used to be and see how I have changed. It is weird that time here goes by so quickly. I will have one year before I know it. How crazy my first 9 months have been, but I wouldn't have it any other way love you all!!!
Take care and stay safe!!
