So, I`m here in Jesus Maria with hermana Amaya again! It is very rare that companions get back together for a second time! So, I left San Francisco this morning at 5:30 am and I got to Cordoba at like, 8:30 am! I traveled with Elder Mellor, Connor`s friend. He`s finished his mission!
I got to the terminal in cordoba and hermana Amaya came to come get me and when she came i just felt love for her. Hermana Amaya and hermana Miranda opened up an area here in jesus maria, they're the first hermanas to be here, so they had been living with some members for 2 transfers while looking for a house to live in. They found a house and moved in about a week and a half ago. So when I came to the house today we only had 2 beds and a toilet and a sink, we didnt even have lights hahaha. But Elder Blanco, the pensionero, and Elder I cant remember his name drove hermana amaya and i up to jesus maria and they bought us some things for the apartment, plates, bowls, shower curtain, light bulbs, we have electricity now, haha :) And the best part is we got to pick out all of our stuff for the house, and there are SO many pink things im in love with it!! And tomorrow someone is going to bring us a refrigerator and a closet for our clothes and a washing machine and some other things. Im really excited seriously. Something that hermana amaya told me, we were sitting in the car waiting for elder blanco and the other missionary, she said, i was so excited when they told me you were going to be with me again, I feel like i get one of my best friends back with me! We`re in a different area, with different missionaries and what not. And this time I'm not the junior companion. we`re both senior companions - so its a co-companionship. So thats cool too, well have to share all the responsibilities. We don't have a phone, haha they lost it on Saturday so I'm not even sure if well have a phone this transfer but thats okay, way less stress for sure.
I heard the area here we have is really big, so well be taking a lot of collectivos haha. And the ward is really big here, they have like 140 members of the church, thats a lot! We had like, 40-50 in san francisco. they just had 3 baptisms too, they're working really hard out here, i feel really excited, nervous too, but more excited and ready more than anything. I am going to miss san Francisco, but when i got out of the car today in jesus maria, i just felt like this is where i need to be. I feel really good, i feel really excited to start working.
The house we have isn't very big at all, its really small, but i am in love with it! It means there's not that much to clean on p days, haha we wont have to spend hours cleaning anymore lke we did in san francisco. I want to learn the area as fast as i can so i can hurry and learn it so i am able to help my companion. So I suggested that in the mornings when we go running we choose a house to run to of a member, or an investigator, or a less active, and so i can have more help learning everything and ya! if i get us lost, well that sucks we just have to run more hahaha.
But, it was sad to leave san francisco, i really love the people there. it was hard leaving norma and joaquin, i wanted to see them get baptized so bad. but more than that, i am so excited that they're even getting baptized. its not important if i see it or not, because none of this is about me. its about them making covenants with god.
So thats whats going on this week in my life! Thank you for the family letter, i read it last night after i printed it and it just gave me so much strength and made me think that this is all possible.
like you said mom, i just have to believe in god, but not only believe in him, trust in him. I promised him i would do everything that he needed me to do when i accepted my mission call, so here i go. :)
Espero que ustedes tiened una gran semana, llena de muchas cosas buenas. Voy a estar orando para ustedes, como siempre. Ustedes me dan la motivacion wue yo necesito para seguir adelante. Mi consejo para ustedes esta semana es seguir adelante tambien, recuerdense que amo a ustedes, ustedes son los mejores. La mejor familia en serio :) LES AMO!!
Me and Hermana Amaya!
