June 10, 2013

I am doing good, I am feeling better, 100%, no worries.  The sickness only lasted like 5 days. Anyways, here´s an update that I sent to dad:
For me, this week was a little bit slow, I got over my sickness at the beginning of the week, but my companion got worse during the week, and so a couple of days we hardly went out and worked. But I have had some extra time to sleep and get some rest that my body has needed, as well as extra time to study. I have had some cool experiences this week during my study time, and I feel more close to the Savior and I feel like I can feel His love more than I could before as I devoted a little more time to my study of my purpose as a missionary.
Things are going pretty well here. yesterday at church, we had an investigator come who seems like she really wants to change her life, which is super cool. We also had a less active girl come, whose brother we are teaching and hoping that we can baptize him soon. He wants too, we just have to work with the parents right now. I gave a talk in Sacrament Meeting yesterday about faith, and after I sat down I realized that I talked for like 10 to 15 minutes without any problems and without any fear or worries about my spanish. I don´t feel nervous to speak in front of people anymore, it´s weird, because that used to be a big problem for me..
Anyways, thanks for the update mom, I appreciate that you take the time to write to me what´s going on in everyone´s lives. It sounds like everyone is well and changing into summer mode well.
This week is changes week, but I doubt that we´ll have anything change much here.
