So basically your last week en la CCM es cray! Especially when it is the week of Thanksgiving because your schedule makes no sense what so ever. ESPECIALLY if your P-day is. They basically took away our study time all week and spread our P-Day through out the week.
In sacrament meeting here, they just call random missionaries from the Branch to come and give like a five minute talk in Español. Like two seconds before you go up. So guess who they called on...That's right. ME. And I was also the chorister for the meeting. I stood up and down prolly like 5 times! Anyways, everyone said my talk went super well. They all understood what I was saying, so I suppose that´s a plus! I spoke on Fe en Jesucristo y su Expecíon. I just love how Jesús knows exactly how we feel. All the time. We are never alone and I think that is the most beautiful thing. The Night Devotional we had this uber funny guy come and talk with us. Steven B. Allen who is the Managing Director of the Missionary Department. He was hilarious. He had everyone stand up and down for different questions, like who is speaking a different language, who has been here 8 weeks, stuff like that. But the funniest question he asked was Who has been Dear John´d while at el CCm? LOL! We all could not stop laughing because actually a decent chunk of people stood up. He taught us that Satan is going to hit us hard. He is so mad us rn. But he said he will be very sneaky. We have to be very careful so we are aware of him in our lives. He also challenged us if you are struggling to get out of bed in the morning to yell, NOT TODAY SATAN. I have heard that so many times this week it´s crazy! We can not listen to Satan! He wants us to quit. He wants us to give up. We have to push through it.
SoMorning we had Elder Dallin H. Oaks come and speak to us! It was the best. His whole family came and they were the cuuutest. Of course, he talked about being grateful, but he said it in such a great way. He really just wanted us to be grateful for ALL things that the Lord has blessed us with. He forgets not his own. Ah. ¡Es Perfecto! Then we had a service project. We worked with Feeding Children Everywhere and the CCM was able to package 357,000 plus meals for Utah Food Bank! Each meal feeds six people. It was amazing! It was fantastic. We had a talent show in the night and t was really cool. Got to clap in the CCm which was weird...but good.
Well Hermanos y Hermanas, I fly out of UtahAfternoon! Estoy pumped to finally get to Washington!..Even thought I have no clue what I am doing, I am excited. Thanks for all the love and support. You are fantastico. ¡Adios mi Amigos!
