Doing lots better...

05/20/2013


Thanks for the email this week!  It´s good to hear about everyone and everything!  and thank you to everyone who wrote me!!  it was definitely what i needed.  but this past week has been a lot better so no worries!!

our mission president has finally changed the rule so now we can email friends but we only have 45 minutes total which is like nothing.  so yeah.

this week has been crazy!  on wednesday night, our zone leaders called us and said that hermana marinez was going to leave to a different area.  oh man i was freaking out.  i have completely relied on her for everything so thursday was basically a nightmare.  hahaha i got my new companion, another hermana marinez but from peru.  she´s great.  she only has been a member for 2 years but knows so much about the gospel!  but thursay, the district leaders were with us to help us in our lessons and such.... oh man.  there i was, leading around 3 missionaries, not having a clue where we were.  so it was fun.  but for the next few days, we just focused on trying to get to know the members better so it was good.  then last night, they call us and tell us i´m leaving.  haha so now i´m in Esteros with my original hermana marinez.  and i guess this area is a lot easier.  the members are more willing to come with us and the people are more humble and willing to change.  and!!  we live with two other hermanas now, one of them being hermana ayer!!!!!  soooo happy!!!!!!  i seriously love her.  so it´s great!  today we cleaned the apartment for like an hour and a half because it was disguuuusting.  it´s still not the cleanest ever but we´re in ecuador.  so it´s as good as it´s gonna get.  but yeah.  so i´m excited!  and my spanish is getting a lot better.  i´m trying to do what cameron said and just fake it and not try to understand every word that everyone says.  so it´s getting better.  and the Lord is definitely blessing me.  so thank you to everyone for all of your prayers!!  i definitely can feel all the love and support from everyone!

oh guess how stupid.  so we met in a mall type thing today for transfers and we were waiting for like 2 and a half hours because oops, the assistents forgot to tell the other hermanas they were changing.  but anyway.  so i had to go to the bathroom so i go in there and my compnaion was like, oh do you have money?  the toilet paper cost 5 cents!!  for hardly anything!  stupid.

so yeah.  things are good here.  sounds like everything is good back in america.  have brenden and rachel decided on a name??  i still havent gotten an email from brenden.  but i got cameron and dallins!  thanks so much!  i´ll write you back sooner or later.  love you both!

sounds like your class is going well.  and your old woman shower party.  hahahaha whatever that is.  ummmm you should wait to go to europe until i get back so you can take me with you!!!! mmkay???  mmkay thanks.  i´m excited!  it will be great!  i´ll be your translator.

well my teaching pool is going to be completely different now so i´ll have to tell you about all of my investigators next week.  i guess we´ll have some baptisms this week? so that will be fun.  it will be my first.  but our mission is the highest in the world with baptisms.  like over 300 a month or something.  so that´s pretty cool.  i haven´t contributed to that number but i will ya mismo.

alright well i think that´s all.  a million thanks for everyones words of encouragement!!!!  it´s helped immensely!!!  i´m definitely enjoying myself more so things are great.  i know i´m here doing the Lord´s work and i´m so grateful for this amazing opportunity!!

I love you all!!
Hermana Bytheway
