well let me just tell you it is hard to always be so perfect....hahahahahahaha
yeah had to get that joke out.
well today i would like to talk with you all about the best aha moment that I had. Lets bring it back to the amazing days of oprah winfrey aha moments. haha.
well as we sat together in a meeting as a zone with our Mission President, I had the opportunity just to feel the Spirit and learn a lot about how we can change to become better missionaries, and people in general. It is so uplifting to learn about how to become a better person sometimes that I just like sitting and feeling good. So then as we were sitting there our president told us, "Ahora nos gustaria escuchar algunos testimonios...y vamos a empezar con la de Hermana Dunkley" If I were to tell you what he said in english I wouldn`t have said it like he said it so that is why I said it spanish. Yeah sorry I have just been having a little to much fun with the jokes these days, but back to the good stuff. So he told us we were going to listen to testimonies and I knew he was going to ask me for mine so when he told me I was first I got up there and just took a second to look at everyone. I felt the Spirit so strongly and as if God was there listening to me in that moment. So I just talked and told everyone why I am here, and how the atonement of Jesus Christ has truly changed my life. I told them that I had realized that I wasn´t serving a mission to just go home and tell everyone wow look what I did I can speak Spanish, because that would be the biggest waist of 18 months if I only came here to do that. I told them that I honestly feel so blessed to be here to share with others what I know to be true, and if I do not have much success in doing it, I do not care because I am here to serve the Lord. That is what matters to me. I am honestly so grateful for everyday that I have to serve and change my life. I only wish to be able to do a little bit more of that.
Thank you all for your support and prayers. I can truly feel the help when I have to walk up stairs and just want to die. Then I realize yeah its alright I will be able to drive a car in 7 months. haha. That is what keeps me walking everywhere I go. I love you all so much!!!
ps. here are some pictures of us making empanadas. my first one was really small so i made two to redeem myself. they were absolutely amazing when I get home I will get a lot of money from selling them...hahahah
Con mucho amor de Guranda,
