I often think about what I´m going to write, but today I´m not really sure what to write about. There isn´t a certain story that comes to my mind. I had some amazing experiences this week, but I think I´m just going to share with you guys how I feel right now.
It´s starting to hit me.. and I never thought it would. Elder Paleka and I are in Mar del Plata today and we had the chance to hangout a little bit with Martín Villalobo this morning. We walked along the coast and talked about his family and how he´s doing. He´s doing extremely well. Oh how the Lord has blessed me to have gotten to know him here. As we stood there watching the waves, it started hitting me. I´m really going to miss this. I love this place. I love the people. I was watching the Atlantic Ocean with two of my best friends in the whole world. I can´t stop having feelings of gratitude to the Lord for sending me here and CHANGING me here. This place has changed me. Through all the hard times, mistakes and trials, I have improved and I´ve become closer to my Father in Heaven.
I don´t have much to say this week but I want to bear my testimony. I know that this is the work of the Lord. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind. I love the mission. I love every bit of it. I wouldn´t have changed it at all. Through all the up and downs, the Lord has been with me every step of the way. I have met people who have truly shown me what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. This time has allowed the Lord to shape and mold me. And even though I haven´t always been as submitted to His will as I should be, He has allowed me to learn, progress, and grow. The mission is the best way for the Lord to truly shape us into the person He wants us to become if we let Him. The beauty of it all is that I still have plenty of time left to keep improving and learning from Him.
Thanks for the love and support. Keep the Vasquez Family in your prayers. They´re hopefully getting baptized this Saturday!
