Subject: 11 DAYS! WHAT?!
Familia! Que tal?Casi estoy terminado con mi tiempo en la CCM!
First of all I wanted to apologize to those who read this who aren't really familiar with missionary or LDS gerund that I use
I leave in 11 days! Time has gone by SO fast. Some of my best friends from the MTC from my zone leave on Monday and it is hard to see them go. They really have grown to be some of my best friends, but I know they are doing a great work as they leave (some to Mexico and 2 to Arizona).But last week on friday, I was kind of sick, but it got really bad that day. I thought it would just get better after a day or so, but when it got to tuesday and it was getting worse, I decided to go to the doctor. The doctor said "I'm not sure what it is, but we can try this antibiotic." So that wasn't exactly comforting. But I got a priesthood blessing (mormon.org/priesthood) that afternoon, and after that point I started to feel better. I also started taking the antibiotics that night which I'm sure helped me to recover too. But I really learned a lot during the time I was sick. It made me realize what a blessing full health is. Heavenly Father doesn't just bless me with full health to be nice, I think he does it so I can serve others effectively. And this just made me realize that I can do so much with full health. So I am determined to use the energy I've been blessed with better to serve! I also realized a lot of things that I need to do better to live up to my calling as a representative of the Savior. The Savior wasn't just good in terms of staying away from wickedness, but he ministered and lifted others up. So that is another thing I am working on.
I feel so much joy and love every single day here. I'm so blessed to be able to love and serve God's children. I love you all so much! Have an awesome and happy week!
P.S.Oh yeah, and since this is my last week, if you send a letter and it won't get here by this friday, I wouldn't send it because I wont get it. We don't get mail on Saturdays. You can wait to send it to my new address which hopefully I can give to you all next friday!
