Been a while since I've wrote! SORRY! Between Christmas New Years and Bad Stomach aches there has just been no time/ motivation to write! But here I am again!
Christmas was AMAZING with a two hour much needed chat with my family! I am so blessed to have such incredible parents and siblings. Makes me the happiest camper in all the forest!
New years was spent with a really bad stomach ache in and out of the bathroom! YES!!!! Best way to start my year EVER! I got over that though and we are back to normal! As normal as having the runs can be that is! I can't remember what it is like to not have good "stools." Sorry, that was probably way to much information!
The work is going so well. I am still in my little part of Buenos Aires called Luis Guillon and am now with my second companion here. Elder Bradshaw was a hoot and Elder Tracy is more serious, but the both are such great guys and great missionaries.
Today we had the opportunity to go to the Temple here in Buenos Aires. We believe these buildings to be some of the most Sacred places on earth. Places where heaven and earth meet and where men walk with God and angles. On every temple above the doors it sates "Holiness to the Lord, The House of the Lord" and we believe that it is as such. The House of God here on earth! It is a place where I was able to find such peace and comfort and really put myself in contact with God. We believe in Revelation and I testify that God speaks to us especially when we seek him in his holy houses the Temples. It is such a blessing to visit such a beautiful place!
I am doing well. It is hot, humid and my shoes have holes, but I am happy and doing everything I could possible want! It is all going by so fast and I can see the end. This year is big for me and I hope and pray to measure up to my potential and what God expects from me!
I love you all!
