I don’t have much to talk about this week, but I have a cool story for all of you! But first off-package: If you haven’t already sent it, could you put in a picture with me with short hair? Nobody believes me when I said I cut it like Rapunzel one time. Oh and please do watch the Best Two Years! It’s so much funnier now! PROMISE! And really… I am a child magnet. I told my companion I need to cut my hair short, because the children this week realized they can tie my hair in knots. Literally. So now I always have a clip with me to clip it up. Also, this week I am having all the photos I have taken put on a disk so I can send it to you guys, rather than a bunch of individual ones that cost a lot of money to send. I’m glad you guys had fun at Lake Powell!! I remember I did a 20 foot jump I think, but never again! I love knee boarding! Good job you guys! Good job for trying new things and not giving up and sometimes succeeding, just keep practicing, you guys rock!
Ok so my week. This week I had a lot of meetings with the new president and we talked a lot about obedience. Apparently a lot of people can be disobedient in this mission, because it has only been open for 4 years. But it’s all getting fixed! So things are getting better in this mission! Also last Monday, I finally found people to play frisbee with me! And my frisbee got me a contact! YES! I am so proud of that small thing. Also this week, we got a family to go to the temple-for the first time! So we can only watch movies authorized by the church (this will lead to my spiritual thought) and so this week we decided when our penchinista’s family is watching TV, we would put in a church movie and this week it was 17 Miracles. So good! Anyways, as a joke, I told the other English speaking hermana with me that I was going to make a list of miracles in my life, and maybe my life would be made into a movie. But after I said it I thought about it-and guess what I did? I started to make a list of miracles in my life!
So at first they were the big things like the Trek car accident, and the Lake Powell incident with Emily, big things that you know are miracles. However, after that they started to become little things I never realized were miracles. For example, teaching the gospel in a different language, my first week being in Peru! Tiny things you might never think are miracles. I began to realize that my life was full of them; I just never thought to look that closely at them. So my challenge for all of you this week is to write down some of the miracles in your life! Start big! Big is easy, but after that, you will begin to find the little things too. It is so amazing! And maybe your life will become a movie one day :). Oh another thing-I also began to realize that I give miracles to people too, things that are so small to me, are so big to others.
Anyways love you all! I pray for you guys all the time! Also, Noe, I am so glad you got my letter! I can’t wait for yours! Dad where is your freaking letter?! Anyways, got to go! LOVE YOU!
