Week 61: Week one: how to kill a missionary

Wow. That’s just all I have to say. So we survived our first week in the last and dreadful transfer of Hna. Argueta.

For all of you who don’t know what it means to kill a missionary, it means to be their companion when they "die" or what that means is to finish their mission and go home. To explain, I have always thought that it would be fun to kill my companion and well... it’s a lot... different than what I thought it would be like. I’ve decided that there should be a manual on how to kill your companion. In fact, I’m in the process of writing one for future generations. It’s still in production bc every day I learn a new concept, haha I’ve already come up with a title. Y’all will have to tell me how it is and give me some feedback. My powerful book will be called: ‘How To Kill Your Companion Without Dying Yourself For Dummies”. I plan on blessing generations with my amazing book writing talent, haha
I’m not saying this bc I’m suffering with Hna Argueta, just the opposite. I love her to death and we are trying to make the most of our time together before she ends her mission, but man, its hard sending your companion home at the end of their mission. It involves a lot of emotions, tears, worry, fear, prayer, goal making, laughing, and gratitude. But every day I learn something new from my wonderful companion, I love it. I’ve learned to be a lot more in tune with the Spirit to know what to say to help her know what Heavenly Father wants her to know and hear.

This past week was a little bit harder than the rest but one that I wouldn’t change for all the gold in the world. I’ve learned and felt and experienced so many things that I will never forget and I’ve grown so much spiritually than what I thought was possible. The week seemed to last a month, but in the end, I came out alive, so that’s what counts, right?

I’m doing just fine with my health. The medicine is helping and I don’t hurt that much. But it’s a huge bummer bc I can’t eat my chilie :( makes me sad. They put me on a strict diet to follow and it’s been a sad week full of food without the heavenly flavor of chilie habanero. Hopefully I’ll be good as new in 2 weeks and I’ll be able to eat my chilie again :)

Our investigator Raul is doing amazing!!! You guys would not believe how golden he is. Every time we have a lesson with him we just die bc he is just soo amazing. He hasn’t even been baptized yet and we are already helping him prepare to go on his mission in a little over a year when he finishes college. He’s in Mosiah in the Book of Mormon and on top of that, he’s half way through with reading the Gospel Principles book. AND even before we could have a formal lesson on the commandment of Fasting he came to us on Sunday and explained that he had read about Fasting and felt the need to do so this Saturday and Sunday and he did and PAID HIS FAST OFFERING THIS SUNDAY. We just died and asked him if he wanted to get baptized that night. He says that he wants to wait until the 25th bc that’s when all his family can be there. So patiently... (Maybe just a little bit) we are waiting for the 25th to come.

And yeah. That’s all for this week folks.
Thanks for the support and love I feel from you all DAILY. I love you all soo much!!!!
