Hola mi familia!
I officially leave in less than 48 hours from the CCM. How crazy is that? However, I'm waiting to send this until I get back to the States because the postal system in Mexico is not super reliable. Leaving here is...bittersweet. I love love love my district. We really are a family. We joke, we laugh, we fight, we cry...everything. Most of all, we endured the longest six weeks of our lives together.
My comp is just wonderful. She set expectations very high. I've had a little taste of what marriage feels like. It's crazy how we spend so much time together...Okay, ALL of our time together. Except with marriage, I get to CHOOSE who I do it with so it will be even better!
I have learned so much and felt so much. However, I'm ready. I'm ready to teach people with real problems, stories, and concerns. I can't wait to see my first investigator baptism and feel pure bliss. People always ask what my happiest moment in life is and I know it's going to happen on my mission. My happiness comes from this perfect and complete gospel so I can't even imagine the joy, bringing it to others, I will feel. The Gospel answers so many questions. I know why I'm here and how I can endure to the end. I know through Christ I can reach my full potential and be cleansed despite my constant imperfections.
I'm so grateful for y'all and y'all's examples to me. It's hard being away, but I know if I work hard and stay worthy then I will bring/send blessings to y'all at home. Know that I love you and I am always praying for y'all.
