We have exchanges this , and the next cambio will be 8 weeks long. President Dyer told me that he will not change our companionship but who knows what will happen. If I am with her again...I will be with her for 2 more months...thats 5 months total. Can you imagine being with the same person for that long? Its a blessing in disguise......President Dyer gave me that impression that he is looking forward for me to begin training new sisters after this next cambio...and that I am soooo nervous for because I am not ready. He kept telling me, you only have 3 months in the mission and your spanish is fantastic and you know how the mission goes. I honestly doubt in myself for that because I still want to be so much better as I am now. I lack so much and I hunger for more knowledge and experience. So we´ll see....I don´t want to train because I don´t feel ready, but we will see....
We are planning an activity for our ward in our area. They are making me dance Hawaiian -_____-.......I am soooooooo not ready for that. It has been way too long.
Our house is great. We live with two other sisters. Hermana Wingate had an emergency cambio, so I live with three latinas....the only north american in the house. It was so funny because now I teach three of them English. One day the all came into our room and we read the BOM in Ingles. It was the cutest thing ever to hear each of them to read in Ingles. But because I live with three latinas, my spanish is a must...MUST MUST MUST. It´ll be good....cuz I need the extra push.
I GOT YOUR PACKAGE LAST WEEK TUESDAY!!!! :) Thank you for all the gifts and whatnots! I love the purse! Its soooo beautiful!!! I got super trunky for shopping in Hawaii. Because here, its so different to shop. I can´t wait for tomorrow to see if I got your mail or not.
I miss taking legit fotos...Marvy, the pics turned out beautiful. I miss Hawaii. I miss you all, but from being here so long, the homesickness has became a lot easier to deal with. I miss you all, but I am so happy to be here. I have never felt so right in place of where I am. I feel so different. I wake up and think, "Who am I?...oh a daughter of God".
Daddy, thank you for your FUNNY email. I miss your cooking and your filipino accent! I can´t wait to talk to you in spanish, because I know you will be able to understand me a little :).
It makes me so happy to hear that you are all going to the temple and getting our family work done. Thank you for doing that. I miss the temple too. I hunger to go inside, but I won´t go in until next month. I am happy that Jesse is going too. Enjoy your summer and go to WARD CAMP!!! Ahhhh.....good times. You may feel at times that there is nothing to do since its summer, but there is a lot to do. I am going to be the missionary that I am and tell you to read the BOM together as a family. Its essencial. Its a commandment from our Heavenly Father. And also prayer.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Eat for me please because really......I miss the food at home. I really appreciate everything you all do for me. The prayers, the support, everything. I am so happy......so glad to know the truth from the gospel. Se que abuelita esta con nuestra familia en los cielos. Ella esta con nosotros también. Se que nuestra familia serán juntas para siempre. Dios esta bendiciendo a nosotros hoy, y para siempre. A veces la vida en la tierra es difícil, pero con el amor de Dios, todos es posible. Estoy muy agradecida por la expiación y el poder que la tiene. Por medio de la expiación, podemos cambiar y mejorar nuestras vidas. Se que Jesucristo es nuestro salvador y redentor...y es nuestro ejemplo de lo que tenemos que llegar a ser. Por eso.....se lo que tengo que ser. Más como Jesucristo.
Les amo mucho. Les envío muchos abrazos y bendiciones.
Hermana Santeco :)
