Yay! Makayla got her package!!!
It is so weird to hear about the seasons changing. Time is sure passing isn´t it? Your package arrived, I just have yet to open it!!!
A new responsibility, "Sister Training Leader"...If you're like me and not sure what that means check this link out: Sister Training Leaders
Sounds like an amazing opportunity to serve and learn! Oh, how I wish I could be there!!
I got transferred out of Itacoatiara! I wasn´t expecting it at all because my companion already had 6 months in the area. Well, we were both transferred! The area didn´t exactly close because two new sisters will be filling in our places. I am back in Manaus as a Sister Training Leader :O. So I definitely don´t feel ready, BUT ... I have learned well on the mission that feeling 100% capable doesn´t exist, haha. What does exist is the power of faith unto receiving Heavenly help and growth. I have actually already spent a day in the area doing a split with the Sister who is now my companion, Sister Rivera from Ecuador! I do like the new adjustment, and feel excited to see how I will grow.
*The best way to have FUN on the mission is to allow Heavenly Father to push you, and see the results when you turn around*. It really is the coolest process. I can honestly say that I have a new perspective of myself because of my experiences here on the mission. A new perspective of my potential of a daughter of God, in His very hands. This goes for each one of us!!! I can´t explain how grateful I am for these experiences that I am having. I love to remember that a "perfect" life doesn´t exist in mortality. Yet our very difficulties, trials, and imperfections make part of a perfect heavenly plan.
Sorry for the short email, I just got back into Manaus and haven´t unpacked yet.
Have a wonderful week!
Love you tons!
