It's been a hard and long, yet very rewarding week. On Wednesday I became crazy sick. My head felt like it was literally about to explode. It was the worst feeling I have ever experienced. My muscles ache and my voice is gone. But i understand why I experienced that. I've been wanting to understand more about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. As I sat in my bed that night I was pondering to myself. I thought of the Savior and how He suffered for every sin, sickness, hurt feeling, etc. I was impressed in my mind about if I'm just one missionary with a crazy bad headache, what did He feel as He suffered from everything. To me it was a real eye opener on how little we know what the most important event in history. I was about to ask for relief in a prayer but I thought to myself. If the Savior suffered all that without relief I can handle this too. I felt a tender feeling in my heart. I felt that it was prompting to ask anyways. So I did. As the pain was relieved I understood that choosing to not ask for help is like saying, Thank you for suffering for nothing cause i wont use it. Now I'm constantly trying to find ways to use the Atonement more fully in my life. Besides that experience I don't remember that day much.
I have had one baptism named Allison age 13 in Proyecto Manuel de Jesus. The baptism of Marcos fell through because we found a full pack of cigarettes on his bed
The language is becoming easier. I understand a majority of what is being said. But I have noticed that my understanding increases the harder and more focused I am on the work. Here's a trick ladies and gentlemen. When you do what the Lord commands you prosper in the land. HAHA. Go figure. Thanks Nephi.
I started working with members lately. They love me! My companions.... not so much. I'm working hard and we have an exciting week coming up.
PS Doritos. Yep that's all I can think of right now. I'm sending the SD card home today BTW.
