Hoooooola. Okay first off I’m sorry because I didn’t reply to anyone last week. I only replied to 3 people (not even all of my family) because we had to go to the hospital. I’m going to try to get to everyone today but I have a lot of emails built up.
Okay, well this week was good! I was better on Tuesday in time to go to the Transfers meeting an hour and half away in Puebla. But now I have a bad cold.
So about my new companion! Her name is Hermana Pasten and I love her so much. She’s from Chile and we get along really well and have lots of fun together. She is about to reach her year mark of the mission in 3 days! And this is her first time being in the state of Tlaxcala. She’s always been in Puebla, like in the city. I’m also her first American companion! The other day she told me that when she found out her new companion was American she was super scared because people had told her things about the American hermanas that weren’t so great. She said I’m very different than what she heard and that she’s really happy so that’s good that I broke the stereotype I guess haha. But yeah we’re loving our time together, she’s awesome!
I also love my new district. We all get along really well and love being together. It hasn’t even been a week and we already have matching bracelets, matching Santa hats, and trompos that we bought together.
-So about those Trompo toys I was talking about? I gave in and got one... Well actually an Elder in my district bought one for both me and Hermana Pasten. We’re addicted and we can’t stop playing with them.
On Friday we had a multi-zone conference with the Area Seventy of Mexico ,Elder Toris, his wife and President and Sister Christensen. It was really good and we learned a lot! I got to see a lot of friends so as always that was great.
An update on my health: When we went to the hospital the doctor said I’m okay and he thinks me being sick was from so much grease and spiciness in the food that eventually built up and my body couldn’t take it anymore. Also all the stress and nervousness I had with transfers and the fact that before I threw up I was playing soccer with the Elders in the hot sun. But yeah I got better really quickly. We told the doctor some other symptoms I’ve been having with my stomach and chest and stuff and he said that I have some problem with gastro something and that I need to see a specialist, but ehh who knows.
In this week I will be 1/4 done with my mission... What?! The time has flown by crazy fast and before I know it, it’s going to be Christmas!
We didn’t do anything for Thanksgiving :( In fact, I actually didn’t even remember on Thursday that it was thanksgiving until that night. But in the Thanksgiving spirit here are some of the things I’m thankful for:
* My family
* Being a missionary, especially in the Mexico Puebla North Mission.
* The life that I have grown up with. My house, my schools, Maple Valley, etc.
* The people that haven´t forgotten about me. (;
* The United States
* Having the truth and direction of the gospel in my life.
* All of my friends and the people who have touched my life.
* and many, many more things.
I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving and were able to feel the spirit of gratitude and also I hope you all were able to eat a ton to make up for what I didn’t get to eat…haha.
Que tengan una semana maravillosa!
Con mucho amor,
PS… I have lots of photos to send this week but I’m not sure if the computer will let me send them so I’m sorry if you don’t get them :(
