Live has been very good

Dear Mom,
Life has been very good and God has blessed me with an awesome companion that is really, really, ready to go and to learn. She is very, very sweet  and just like me so we get along really well. Her name is Hermana H and is from San Antonio Texas. Seriously already my best friend. Just love it.
The weather is hot, the food is great, the people are loving and someone should get baptized real soon. So I can't complain really. :)
Time is moving just as it should in my opinion. Made a decision to not think about time until I hit January soooo I haven't thought of it haha :) But life is going good.
Say hi to all!

4 cakes

I am going to train again. Gonna get a maquina so I am not worried. These two weeks got me prepared to get going with the mission and not to worry about anything. My mini Missionary was legit. I ate a ton of cake.... 4 to be exact.... all from different people. You could say that I am very loved by those here in El Monte. I will be starting my fifth change in the same area. I will complete a year in the mission with only two areas. ;) God wants me in El Monte for some reason!
Looovvee you more than I love all the cake I ate!

Where are We Facing?

Well I am with Hermana R. a little mini missionary here in El Monte. One week with her and then I will get a new companion! Fighting and fighting and fighting like always to understand and grasp the person I really am.
We found a whole lot of new people to teach. Actually there is this one lady named Sa. that should get baptized pretty soon. She is legit. Her family will get baptized soon as well. Very, very prepared spiritually. And the Lord still blesses us even when we are whiny complainers like me. ;)
I read that talk by Elder Uchtdorf from the woman's conference and then I read it again and again and again and again. And I am starting to get what this life is really about. I still am very far from providing an educated answer obviously, but I really really love what it says. That eternal life is knowing Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ personally. What a challenge. We can say we know they live and list off the facts of their personalities and what attributes that they have but to know them, to walk with them, that requires a type and level of obedience that I still cannot comprehend nor achieve in this part of my life. However I know that there is only a few ways that we can achieve this type of obedience and that is if it stems from pure love of God. No solo por cumplir (don't know that in English) the requirements nor because we are scared of a punishment but because we LOVE God more than we love the world. Someone in general conference talked about deciding where we face. That is true. :) WHERE ARE WE FACING? Even in the mission we have re-evaluate ourselves everyday :)
Love you! Miss you a lot! I am almost 20! Weird right!

Read and understand

I loved conference. Not sure exactly what I learned, so I am pumped to get the Ensign so I can get reading and studying. I think that is one of the important things that I have learned on the mission, to read and understand the talks after they have been given. To really study and apply them a little more in my life. I love the fact that we have such wonderful technology to listen and read and see again and again the words of a living prophet and his apostles.

Not much to tell! Lots of thanks to a wonderful sister Kristofferson who sent a lovely letter to me that brightened my day. Thank you :)
