16 Month Mark

February 5, 2018


Hi friends and family!

I hope you are all having a good day today. Last week we had a TON of rain, so that helped to cool the weather down a little bit for a few days, but now all the rain is gone and the heat has spiked once again! Oh well, I guess that´s just about all the aone can expect in the land of eternal sunshine.
This week while proselyting, we met this sweet girl named Adabely. she is 11 years old and vary smart and has a big personality. As we were finishing our first lesson with her, I told her that if at any moment she has a question or a doubt, she can ask us it and we´ll do our best to answer. Well THAT was a BAD idea, because you know what was the next thing she asked us? “How are babies made?” Oh boy, we sure had an interesting time avoiding answering that question. Well, that sure taught me to be careful with the type of questions i ask 11 year olds.
The other day, we checked our savings and realized that we had anough money to go buy a pizza for our dinner! That we pretty awesome.
So YESTERDAY I hit my 16 month mark…so yeah, I guess you could say that I´m officially freaking out. Where did all the time go?? It´s so weird knowing that I´m one of the “oldest” missionaries here but I still feel like such a baby sometimes! I know that I´m still far from being perfect but I am so grateful to be here andI know the mission has helped me to becomea better person. I´m trying not to think to much about how many weeks I have left here in Bolivia because there are still so many things that I want to do here andI´m still hoping to see some big miracles!
I love you all so much and I know my emails aren´t always very long but hey, you can all be satisfied with the knowledge that in just a few short weeks I´ll be home to be able to talk to you all in person! Hahaha!
Love you all so much!

PS Nect week is CARNAVAL so you know what that means…I will be locked up in the house for three whole days! So I will be getting on Saturday to talk to you all. 🙂
