Hey yo!!!! How are you my favorite people??
YAY!!!!!!!!! You got a job! Good luck. You will do awesome 🙂
Sounds like everything is balling. Or rolling. Sounds like all is well.
I am going to miss the daycare kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh man.
Ok so flip. This week was absolutely crazy.
After we got home last P-day my ankle got real swollen and I couldn’t walk on it! And I got a rash all over my body…. I GOT CHIKUNGUNYA which is this illness that is going around the carib. Most of the week I slept and I was on some serious pain meds! But after a blessing, meds, sleep, water and ice on my ankle. Both my ankle and my illness are all better!!
This week while I was sick I had a lot of time to think and I found that my thoughts were wandering far away. So I spent any spare second reading my scriptures and talks and praying. Still I just felt idle and yucky. I am so glad to be back to normal. I am still a little tired and off but I am good 🙂
Funny moment of the week: One of our investigators gave us a huge framed picture of a Black Jesus Rasta man Last Supper… It is hanging in our house right as we speak.
I called Sister M. this week because I was in need of some counsel and guidance. She helped me so much. I told Sister W. “I miss my mom, I used to talk to her about everything” I missed you for a moment but I knew what advice you’d give me and it made me feel better.
I was feeling a little bit weighed down at the end of the week and kinda putting myself down. Like I do sometimes……. But there are so many blessings that Heavenly Father is giving us. I need to have an increase of faith and to rely on God more. I felt much better after we just went out and got to work! We had an awesome lesson at A.’s (members) house. We were talking about what we learned at church and the spirit was so strong and right in the middle her Nephew walked in the house and joined in the lesson and we had a solid first lesson with him, He is golden!!!! What a blessing.
Also this week we visited a Methodist church. It was nice. They sang some good songs and I think it opened up our investigator to coming to church 🙂
Oh by the way I can’t remember if I told you but my camera is broken…………. It got wet……..
All is well though! Ya know? Life goes on.
Something that I have been pondering a lot on is how short life is. Honestly Life is too short to sit around and waste time. We need to be doing our best all the time. We are capable of so much. Also it is pointless to sit there and worry about something that has happened in the past. We can’t change the past but we can learn from it. So we should all stop stressing and fussing about things we can’t change, and just move forward.
So that is pretty much my week!!! It was nice. I am still learning so much and am humbled and grateful every day. Thank you for your love and support and kindness for me.
I love you so much!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK! LOVE YOU ALL!!
Love always, Sister Emily
