So last week after I finished writing I had a great P-day and apparently it was so great that we all forgot to set alarms last Saturday! Woops. :) Luckily my comp woke up around 7:30 and we all started panicking (just imagine 5 hermanas panicking...I have to admit I was just laughing the whole time) and somehow we made it to class on time Saturday morning, even though it started at 7:40. God really works miracles sometimes!
OH MY HEAVENS. An Apostle of the Lord came this week and it was incredible! Elder Neil L. Andersen came and spoke to us. I always imagined when I was growing up that I would sing Called to Serve in the MTC but who would have thought it would be in front of an apostle? It was such a cool experience. He talked a lot about sacrifice and how we have each sacrificed something to be here. He also said, "We must give something up to become something better." I loved that so much. It makes me think about what I am willing to give up to become a better person!
I am so grateful to be a missionary. Even though my first couple weeks in Nicaragua I will only communicate through smiling and waving because I'll have no idea what's going on, I am pumped. I'm realizing more and more that the simple truths of the gospel are the greatest knowledge we can have. I hope you all have a great week and enjoy halloween tomorrow! (I'll be studying the scriptures while everyone is trick or treating..so who is the real winner here?)
|Flight information?! What?! |
We also found another sister that is going
to our mission! She just got here this week
though so she will be a transfer behind us!
I saw her Wednesday from the window while my comp
was getting ready and I started jumping up and down
and knocking on the window. When she walked up
the stairs, I ran and we hugged and cried.
Such a blessing to have her here!
|The new hermanas in our room. L to R: Me, Hna Rowing|
Hna Speas (my comp), Hna Roahner. They are so amazing
and I love them so much. Sweetest girls ever. Hna Rowing
is from Utah and the other two are from California.
|The whole zone!|
|This is Hna Partridge. She left this week for the NIC|
south mission and she is amazing. So wish we were
going to the same mission.
|Look who I ran into :)|
