When a missionary is about to end their mission, all the other missionaries say that they are "dying". It's just starting to really hit me that I only have one month and that I am one of those missionaries. One month from today, I will be on an airplane home. For that reason, this past week has been a little rough, but in ways that I've never experienced.
Everyday that we get rejected, appointments fall, my feet hurt, we are tired, the usual. I'm used to all of that, it's nothing new. It's the fact that pretty soon these struggles are not going to be struggles anymore. I'm not going to be in the street everyday walking, looking for people to teach, bearing my testimony with all that I come in contact with, coming home exhausted from a long day's work, but waking up the next morning excited to do exactly the same thing. That's what's rough. I don't know if I'm ready to leave all of that behind.
The good thing is that I still have a month of it left, so I am going to try to enjoy every moment!
This last week has actually been pretty incredible! Amazing what my new comp and I have been able to do in our sector in just a short amount of time together! Companionship unity really makes a difference! This last week we were able to find 4 new people to teach and we now have 2 people with a baptism date!
If all goes well, which I know it will, we will have two more baptisms before I go! One on the 2nd and the other on the 9th! It's going to be a great way to go out! I'm sure after those two baptisms, I will feel better about coming home! It's that I still have so much to do here this next month, It hurts to think that pretty soon I wont be a part of it, but I just need to focus on fulfilling my purpose her, and when
I do, then I will be ready! (happy face, happy face, happy face.. 😁 this is my face on the outside, but this is how I really am on the inside 😲😖😞😆😓🤔😣😕😔😤😟😢😭😩😬😦😧😨😵😳😶 now you understand my dilemma. Lots of emotions....)
Pero bueno! Super excited for these next few weeks! They are gonna be super crazy, but I'm ready to see some miracles! We are gonna go out with a BANG!!! This is the last time I am going to ask for your prayers.....Help me to end this thing well.
