March 3, 2014

Yes. I was MIA last week. I´ve got lots to catch up on.
First. Transfers. I´ll be staying once again in Hainamosa. My new companion is Hermana Prestwich from Georgia. She was in Aruba before. And she´ll be leaving in April. I´ll be killing her :) My old companion Hermana Beltran went to Aruba. So she´s gone. 
Investigators: Karina. Oh Karina. We´ve only been waiting for her little boys certificate. But it turns out they told her she´d have to wait for 2 more months. NOO. I´m annoyed. But what can you do. We´re trying to figure out what else what we can do. Stay tuned.
Barbara and Hamlet: She wants to get baptised.. but they need to get married. EVERYONE NEEDS TO GET MARRIED!
Angel Luis and Rosemeri: SUPER AWESOME COUPLE! I´ve never felt the spirit so stong! We have to best lessons with them! They also need to get marrried... yay. 
Daihana: Wants to get baptised.. needs to go to church. 
Everyones got their own set of probs. Keep praying for them.
We had our last district meeting on the 20th. Elder Rivera left on Monday. He was my first zone leader and the last AP. He´s so awesome! A bunch of us from the zone went out to lunch . To remember him he gave us all 1 lempira (hondorus money) and he signed it. Hes great. Going to miss him! 
On Saturday the 22 some elders for our zone were having a baptism. And they decided to have it in the Stake center ( our church) and they invited us to sing. All the elders were there for some priesthood conference.. so our entire zone was there to support. It was such a cool baptism! So many people go baptised!! 6 People! what a blessing. 
We also sang during Sacrament meeting.. that was fun. And one of the counselors in the stake talked. His talked centered in how to raise our children. It was soo good. It took me going on  mission to learn how to become a good parent ;)
This monday. H. Beltran left. She left really early. It was weird seeing her leave. I won´t see her until like august! What. Going to miss her.
On tuesday. I went to pick up my new comp. I had to take a taxi BY MYSELF. It was so weird being by myself. I´m going to be a joke when I get home. She got there kinda late.. so I just sat and chatted. Previously our zone only had 4 hermanas. Now we have SEVEN. it´s so good. They opened up another hermana area. So now we can do intercambios in another area. YAY! i´m excted. The hermanas in Cancino seem so nice! I´m stoked to get to work with them! We have an intercambio planned for this friday.
This week overall has been great. I´m excited for what´s to come. I couldn´t sleep last night.. and i figured out how much time I have left. It´s going to be gone before you know it. I´m scared. I don´t want to go back. I don´t want to face the changes. But the Lord has a perfect plan for me! I´ve been thinking about what I want to do when I get home.. And i´m not really sure. But I guess that´s the cool part. I can do WHATEVER i want. I´ve been thinking a lot my purpose of being here in the DR. And I´ve come to know that Heavenly Father planned it out perfectly. I need to be here. The promises of my Patriachal blessing are being fulfilled here. The mission is hard. But i know i´m here to learn the things i wouldn´t have been able to learn if i was home. I´ve grown so much these last couple of months. It´s crazy how much we´re able to change. God allows us to change. We dont have to be the person we are now. We can literally change. I was thinking back on the companion I´ve had. And i´ve been able to learn something so specific from each of them. He knows what we need and he´ll allow us to grow through our challenges. I live in Baseball capital. So we see a lot of baseball players practicing and training. An elder had given me an analogy. which i forgot. But when I saw it a remembered. They run with HUGE tires tied to them... and they just keep running!! Its to make them stronger.. right. It´s like us. We have our own tires tied us! Which are our trials.. yet the Lord allows us to grow the most during those times! I´ve basically been running around with like 20 tires.. but HEY the Lord knows I can handle it.
There´s what i´ve learned.

I love you all. Thanks for the supportª!
Hermana Morales
