January 4th, 2016

Well I sure can't believe that the new year is here! 2016! It amazes me that this is the year that I will finish my mission. Many people say that the one "whole year" that you are in your mission is your golden year and all I have to say about that is they are right. 2015 was probably one of the best years of my entire life! It was full of miracles, love, and most importantly the spirit! I sure have learned a lot in this last year on my mission. I learned what it means to be a consecrated missionary, how to teach by and through the Spirit, and my favorite was being able to understand how the Spirit talks to me and being able to recognize right away when it is the Spirit. What a blessing it has been to see such great miracles and to have been able to understand a little bit better what the will of the Father is for me. 

This week being new years has been a little bit rough since everyone was out drinking and partying and so we didn't have too much success. It was super hard to find someone that wasn't drunk or that wasn't at a party. We did however find a couple of new investigators to teach this week which was really good since we have a hard enough time as it is finding people to teach. But the new year was good. We pretty much just slept all night which surprised me because last year I couldn't sleep until 1 or 2 in the morning because of all the fireworks.. They still shot off a ton of fireworks here I was just so tired to hear them.

Anyways.. nothing else really happened this week.. I'm super excited for this year being the year when I will finish my mission! I can't wait to see what God has in store for me and for the miracles that will occur here! I love you all and hope you have a great week!
