my little update

this week literally flew by, and by "flew" i mean sitting on a bus for almost 20 hours in total haha it was "really cool"

Ok so last week on monday and the whole week, I was actually feeling PRETTY BAD. I was so tired and so scared because I was losing energy and also stressed out with our area and even more worried about the sisters. When we were in Santa Maria on tuesday, and I took advantage and asked one of the assistants to give me a blessing in english. BEST DECISION I COULDVE MADE. The moment I felt his hands on my head, and I heard my full name in perfect english, I felt at home, the my Heavenly Father was with me and all the bad feelings washed away. I got to feel how Id been wanting to feeling for 14 months now: that God is happy with my work, proud of me, and that he will accept my mission at the end of it. WOW it was so amazing, and ever since tuesday, not that it has been "easy", but I now I´m going to make it because I feel that kind of peace we all seek. Peace isnt just sitting in a clean house on your couch, resting. Peace is knowing that you are living in a manner acording to God´s willing. And folks, I think im getting there! 

I love my mission, and I love the people here, even the ones who dont love me, because they let me feel more in Christ's shoes :)
