I did get the Halloween package you sent! Elder Vergara appreciated the love you sent him too!! He loves candy a lot, LOL. The sad thing is, Hermana Chavez (The mission president's wife) has a rule that we can't eat sugary cereal-at all, so I can't have the cereal you sent...Sucks. I don't understand the rule completely because we can eat candy between the hours of 11am-6pm, but I obey the rule anyway. haha For breakfast I usually have Cheerios, or eggs with a tortilla, ham and salsa, or a sandwich. I enjoy having the small set of scriptures that you sent too because I don't always remember where things are in Spanish, so I can quickly pull it out and find it in the small English set. I defiantly feel my mother's love by everything that she does for me.
This week has been really good. We almost had a baptism this week but it fell through and didn't happen. It's super hard to proselyte once the sun goes down after 6:00pm with 3 more hours in our day! Plus, that's when it get cold and miserable. I've started to find the things that I've learned from my trainer, Elder Vergara, and overall, I think I take him for granted. This week was great for our companionship and I feel like we could talk all day to pass the time when we walk. Today was his last P-Day because he goes home next Monday.
The scripture from this past week (Alma 42:31) is super relatable to me, especially as a missionary. I really love the same part that you mentioned in your email. For this week, the scripture I chose for us to "Ponderize" is: 2 Nephi 22:2-3 It's really powerful and I just love it. I came across it in my personal studies this week.
(2 Nephi 22:2-3)
2 God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.
Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
Love, your missionary,
