Alright everyone!!! My pday is on Monday and we usually write about 4 or 5 pm. I am now officially in the campo. My first area is Jarabacoa and my companion is Hermana Hall! She is from Utah and she is so nice. Jarabacoa´s weather is so awesome! The people here feed us everyday. If not they give us juice like chinola and starfruit. If you don´t know what chinola is go look it up on google. We have running water, fan, washer and dryer, and I don´t need a mosquito net. President Castillo is super nice! When I went in for my interview which was in Spanish by the way, he was just sooo kind. I got the wonderful opportunity to speak in sacrament meeting this Sunday! It was fun, haha and it was of course in Spanish. People came up to me and told me it was a good talk and that they were surprised how good my Spanish was. Definitely the gift of tongues. The people are so kind, but there is a lot of work that needs to be done. This morning around 12, I was so sick. I think I ate something that didn´t agree with me and it was the worst, but that´s okay. I am doing so much better now!
I wanted to share a scripture that I came across this week. It is in John 10 verses 3-4,11,14.
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth themout.
4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am
known of mine.
Jesus Christ knows us by name. He was always submissive to God´s will. We need to do just the same. We need to be submissive to God´s will and just trust in Him.
I attached pictures of Elias ' Pres. Castillo´s son, Hermana Hall and I, picture of our room, and the mountains that we can see from the apartment.
I love you guys and I am sorry this is kinda short and not really uplifting, but I just wanted to let you guys know that this Gospel is true and that I know that because of Jesus´ atonement, we can do anything. ANYTHING is possible. I love you all and hope you are doing well.
