I have learned so much this week. It can't come to an end. IT JUST CAN'T. It hit me again yesterday in sacrament meeting. My life is about to change completely again. I'm happy here! I'm helping people! I'm learning more than I could have ever imagined! I can't bear to think that all these experiences are going to stop. Some days my body tells me I can't take one more step, and some days I feel like I have so much more to do! I just have to remember that I'll keep learning and progressing even after this experience. This is just the beginning.

This week I learned more about Jesus Christ. It was amazing. Go figure. As missionaries we go through EVERYTHING with the investigators, converts, and less actives. Ups, downs, all arounds. We are with them as they take a step of faith, as they doubt, as they fall, as they try again, as they reject it, as they are tempted, as they make bad choices, as they suffer consequences, as they succeed, and as they are blessed. IT IS QUITE THE ROLLERCOASTER. 

I won't go into detail but suffice it to say, I had quite the rollercoaster week. There was one moment when we walked out of the home of one sister that I burst into tears. It was one of those moments of pure heartache... sorrow... saddness. I could not understand. She had reached the tree. She had tasted the fruit. I know. I was with her. I love her. How could it be that she didn't want what we had to offer her now? After all we had been through FOR HER! As I expressed all of these feelings to my calm and collected angel of a companion, she said to me... Do you know how many people Christ died for that didn't accept His sacrifice? Yet was it in vain?

Her words cut deep. I love Hermana Guillen. I love the mission. I love my Savior... Asombro me da, de verdad. Hay que aceptarlo. 

Just livin' the life and counting the blessings!
