So this is really crazy, but in less than one week I will be out in my mission!!!! I can barely believe it!!!
First off I am feeling much better. I was really sick alland friday last week with the flu, so I was able to stay in bed all day. That was kinda nice. But the funny part was when I was feeling good, my companion wakes up very sick with more stomach pains like before. So she stayed in bed all day. Luckily one of the other girls in our room (there is 5 of us- one companionship of 3) has been really sick with a massive migraine for the past 3 weeks... So after lunch, I was able to go with the other 2 sisters on splits so we could all get to the rest of our classes. So that was weird because I was not with my companion. But she is feeling better now too.
Other than thatwas kinda average again. Not amazing by any means, but still really good. I mean how bad can it be when I am on a mission. The sad part of the day came when Sister Owens (who is in our district and one of my roommates) came to us saying that she will be going home . She is the one who has been really sick with the dibilitating headache and it is getting worse. So she left and that was a really hard part of the day.
So far today we have gone to the temple for the last time in the MTC. I just love the temple sooo much and I have loved being able to go every week while here.
Also, it is so much fun hearing from all of you. It seems everyone is doing pretty well. All of you are in my prayers and I miss you guys a ton!! I loved seeing all the pictures of what has been happening back where you guys are. it is so fun to see how everyone is and some of the things that you all are doing.
For the scripture, I was able to read Alma-24 all about Christ-like attributes. I love this work and am so glad that I am able to serve the Lord for 18 months. It is such a cool time to be a missionary. I am seeing so many scriptures that say "the time of the Lord/the Kingdom is at hand." it is cool to see it all in action.
Well I love you alll and the next time I will write you all is in Manila!!!!
