WOW. This week has just been the biggest roller coaster. I don´t even know where to start. Here´s just a list of some things that happened:
- Elder Kearon came to Fogo for our Zone Conference (SO INSPIRING)
- I GOT MY CHRISTMAS PACKAGE!
- I went to Praia for Mission Leader Council (Yes I left the island and returned in the same day. It was fun!)
- We may have a baptism this Saturday!!!.... I´ll update you next week.
- We haven´t had light in our house for almost a week now.
- And water for that matter has been a little here and there. (Sometimes we just need to remember to be grateful...)
- I went to the VOLCANOE. It was SO COOL. (In the sense that it was awesome and also in temperature. I wore a jacket.)
And mix that all in with lots of stress, disappointments, drama, tragedy, oh and don´t forget the miracles! ...and you have yourself a CRAZY week.
I´m sorry I don´t have much time to write this week. So just a heads up for those of you who don´t receive a response! I will do better next week.
Anyway, I don´t really know how to express everything that I´ve learned this week. To put it simply... TRUST IN THE LORD. I found myself seeking for a perfection that actually wasn´t possible nor was it the will of the Lord. I finally took a step back and realized that things were going a little out of control. As I knelt down in prayer I handed over all of the difficulties and stresses and pains and He lifted me up. Jesus Christ lives. He wants to help us and guide us. I love this scripture in Matthew 11:28-30
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I´m sorry I don´t have much time to write this week. So just a heads up for those of you who don´t receive a response! I will do better next week. Thank you for everything! I hope you all have a great week!
