Remember that service project I had told ya'll about? Well we finished it up by putting rock where the bark had once been. So Sister Smith and I shoveled the rock into wheel barrows and the elders pushed those heavy things and then Sister Archuleta and Sister Manis spread the rocks out. We did this for about 4 hours straight! My hands had soo many blisters on them! I got one not to pop and it eventually went down and I've been peeling the ones that had already popped off yesterday. It was a really good work out, lets say that. hahaha My back hurt so much but the look on the manager's face when we finished was all worth it! I love helping people out so much! She invited us to their national night out where me and Sister Smith did face painting. Those who know me really well know that I am NOT an artist by any means! hahaha But it was a blast!
So funny story I now live with the Cloverdale (my last area) their ward mission leader's mother-in-law! It is great! So I get to see the Andrews every once in a while now! So that's awesome!
We were doing companionship study today and I realized everything I'm going through here on the mission is so I can fix my downfalls. Let it be people or feelings. I can see those same temptations here and it's easier for me now to ignore them and to learn how to control myself. I love being on a mission! I have grown myself soo much already but the great part is that I have seen so many other people grow as the Lord was guiding me through the Holy Ghost about what to say. I love this Gospel and know that it has been Restored completely and fully today! I love you all and do miss you! I would say I'll write more next week but I feel like I say that a lot but then never do hehehehe but that's me! I love ya'll so much and my Savior! Be safe and have a great week!
