So this week is transfers. Aaannnnnddd.....my companion is leaving!! Elder Prieto is going back to Laredo in the Area of "West Abundancia" which translates to "West Bountiful" ...no comment. Hahaha:) But surprise! I'm getting transferred as well! I will be leaving to the area of Portland in Corpus Christi Zone! Back to the Great White North! I really wish I was going to a Spanish Area, but I'm excited either way, it's gonna be a lot of fun. I've heard a lot about the ward up in Portland, hopefully my new comp and I will tear it up.
So this past week was really fun, we had a meeting every day, 3 days of exchanges, a birthday party, and a baptism of one of our member's daughters. I don't really know what else to say, it's been a crazy week and day.
I'm really excited to start the next chapter of my mission, but I can't believe how fast it has gone by. I have just over 8 months left, and that's super weird. I have loved my mission so much, I just pray that I'll be able to keep doing as much good as I can while I'm out here. I love the people. I love all my companions, both past and present, we'll see about future;) I love the members I've met so far, the people I've taught, the people that have gotten baptized, my leaders, other missionaries, President Maluenda and his family...it's been great.
If anyone is pondering about serving a mission, stop. Just do it. You will learn more in even just a few months than you will in the next ten years if you don't serve. And if anyone is feeling sad, stop. Forget about yourself. The only times we really are sad are when we're thinking about ourselves. When we focus on others, that's when happiness comes. Everything is a choice. Literally. Everything.
