Okay so it is really weird to be thinking of my Brother coming home from his mission. especially when I know how much he has helped all those around him. He may not have talked about it much but if he is like anything I am. He will have worked his hardest despite what may be going on in his personal life, like being sick alot!!!!! Just plain tired, or feeling that you are so far away from God that you can not see the lives you are blessing. It is only as I have looked back that I have seen how much I have changed but also how much I was truly able to help some one that I taught. I know that He will also be a different person than I knew but I look forward to getting to know him again.
This week has been crazy! At first I have to admit I had a hard time focusing because of all the e-mails geared towards Eric's coming home. But I mentioned it in my Interview with President Mullen and he gave me some wonderful advice that I am now using and it has been so much better! I have been able to focus more and because of that I have been able to support my Companion better. Because 'all' of our investigators speak Spanish. So it has been pushing my spanish to its limits every day! But with a better focus and desire to teach them and to support my companion I have been able to understand better what they are saying, and to get even closer to teaching in unity with my companion. She is so sweet. We have Spanish days and English days. I am learning Spanish she is learning English. so we take every other day and speak the others language through out the whole day between ourselves. She tells me that my Spanish is growing every day! I was so excited to hear that. I remember struggling so hard with it in the MTC almost to the point of tears daily. But I have seen how much the Lord has blessed me that I am now able to talk, teach in and understand a different language. It is amazing!
This week we have seen so many miracles. We are teaching Families here! Every investigator we have are families. With a few we are mostly teaching the wife but that is only because the husband is either at work or sleeping because of work when we go by. but we are still able to teach the whole family. it is amazing. Most of our potentials are families too! God is blessing us and putting the truly prepared in our paths!
Okay so for Christmas I will be skyping. Sister Sanchez will be calling her family in Mexico. we were thinking about 6 our time. and it will only be for 45 minutes! the boots work great! Thank you so much for them! I hope that everything goes great today! I love you all!
