This week went by super fast. Last p-day we played soccer for like five hours as a zone. I didn't know we were going to play soccer so I had sandals on and my feet got stepped on a bunch of times and later that night we were in a family night and when we got back to our room i couldnt get my shoe off because my foot was super swollen. ya, i cried. haha it was the most painful thing of my life and i saw my whole mission flash before my eyes. Like how the heck am i suppose to walk up hills with this foot? haha i thought my foot was broken for sure and Im not even being a dramatic sister missionary. So i said a prayer and put like seven socks on and went to bed and when i woke up it was still all blue and stuff but i could walk and i was super happy. On Thursday we went to Ilo for a zone conference with our president. It was the first time my comp got to see the ocean. She was in awe. The conference was super good. We talked about family history and obedience. I had to give a five minute talk on obedience. It was cool. I have no time to write this letter im sorry. But i love traveling with my zone. They're all like my brothers and sisters. It's always a good time. I still make a fool of myself on a daily basis and it's just like my brothers back at home because the elders make fun of me all the time. haha I havent changed. In one lesson this week my dress got tucked into my garment some how and i walked to my next lesson with my garments just chillin. Don't even worry about it haha.
I loved this week because I finally realized something. Something that I've known for a long time but really put in practice this week and that is the importance of listening to people. I learned so much about the people we are teaching this week and honestly truly enjoyed listening to them. I always stress so much for our numbers every week and those are super important but this week i focused on the poeple we are teaching more. I learned that Julio is like a guitar legend in Peru and plays crazy good. Stuff like that haha. It was such a great week. I feel myself growing SO MUCH and I love it. I love when i have times like that in the mission. When i can feel myself progressing. I can also see my comp progressing so much. Just in her prayers.
Me and my comp started running at 6 in the morning. Since we have a variety of hills to choose from in our area and we both have been dead this entire week but SO HAPPY. haha. That's the best way to explain the mission. You are SO tired all the time but SO happy. I LOVE IT! I love it here. I love the people here. I wish i had more time to write this but i don't. I hope this all makes sense. I love you all so much and am so grateful for the support that I have. THANK YOU!!!
talk to you all soon!
