I apologize to inform you that I REFUSE to leave the mission. I am going to go rogue mormon and keep being a missionary...
Ha ha not even close! The mission is wonderful, but it tires you. I don't know how Paul did so many missions for so long... or Alma and Ammon... The lamanites must have prepared some really good food ;)
This week was probably the best week of my entire mission... Why did I have to wait two years to get to this point! We baptized Lourdes Cuellar and Maira Ojeda on Saturday! The entire family of Lourdes is already baptized, but she was hestitant to enter the water for fear of her family... Then on Monday she had a dream that she NEEDED to get baptized, so she did! Maira told us that she didn't want to get baptized, but she got married on Friday. Everyone started asking us if we had talked to her about baptism, and we said, "No, she told us she isn't ready." Well we talked to her Saturday morning and she was a totally different person! She knew that the Book of Mormon is true, that Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's chosen prophet today, and that the temple is the only way to live with her family forver! Can anyone say mircacles in abundance?!
I'll see you all in two weeks!
