Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
Holy sack! I can’t believe it’s my last week in the CCM!!! It’s weird because
everyday seems like ages long but it has gone by in a blink! I am so ready to
leave this place. hahahah There is a reason they call it the Concentration Camp
for Missionaries hahahahah jk lol It’s been awesome here. I’m so freaking excited
to get out to the field though! Only like 4 more days it’s insane! I think my
Spanish is pretty decent but I have a feeling that when I get off the plane I’m not
going to understand a thing.
This week has been awesome though! We've had a ton of meetings for our last
week and they gave us these green dots to put on our tags so now everyone
expects us to know everything! hhahaha. I got my flight plans yesterday. Our
flight leaves at 7 am on Monday, September 10th so we have to be at reception
by 2:30 am to drive to the airport. hahaha I’m debating on whether or not I
should even go to bed. That first week in the field is going to be insane. hahaha
Parker left this last Monday and he said he was pooping himself on Sunday!
hahahahaha. I’m sure I will be in the same boat this coming Sunday. I still see
Koleton all the time so that’s great. I am sure going to miss all of my buds.
This last week we have done a lot of activities to try and keep us motivated in the
CCM. One of them we used ties as blindfolds to help with giving directions in
Spanish. I don’t know why but Stewart tied the tie around his head and said "Hey
guys! I’m from Brovo!" For some reason it was the funniest thing in the freaking
We had quite the interesting experience on Monday night. Hahaha We live in a
casa with a bunch of Latinos and they invited us to do a home evening thing with
them. It was awesome. They talked a bunch about having faith and asked me to
give a thought and I about died hahaha. I shared Enos 1: 12, which is an
awesome scripture by the way, and they all thought I was a beast for doing it all
in Spanish! Then after the thing was over we went back to our room but the door
was closed and we all forgot our keys! We had to run to reception at
like 10:45 without shoes on to go and get another key. hahahaha We looked
crazy but it was so funny!
I’m so excited to get to Villahermosa. I know it is going to be an amazing
experience! I have a lot to learn and I know I will grow so much as well. I am
going to give it everything thing I have, the best is all I have to give.
Love you all!!!
P.S. The church is true!!!!
