I am here! I am SO sorry that I didn’t write yesterday! It was because... Elder C had Transfers!! And well... IT SUCKS!!! I miss him so much. Literally. My new companion is kind of cool. It’s another white kid. OF COURSE. (Brae really wants a native so his Spanish accent will get better) His name is Elder W and he is tall, skinny, and seems nice enough. It’s just a little hard because even though Elder W is the senior companion (he has 11 months and I have 7 months), it’s basically me doing everything by myself and he doesn’t really help me. I’m sure once he gets used to the area that will change.

Anyway, literally we haven’t had anything happen this week. It was kind of a go with the flow kind of week. It is hard to be in Saucillo, but we are having transfers in 2 weeks, so I am hoping that I will just show this new kid the area, and then I will get transferred at the end of this cycle.
I am SO sorry to hear about my friend. That is horrible and it makes me sick. But I sent him a good message this week. I hope he takes it to heart and will start listening to the gospel more and becoming what God needs him to be. I am sorry about how things are going. It’s really hard for me here, too. I am here with my new companion and things are so difficult. I am having such a hard time right now. He is a great kid! But I don’t know, I think I just need to change my attitude. It’s been a really hard week for me. I think I will talk to my mission president. Maybe ask him for a blessing. I just hope things will go well. I am trying to not let Satan get in my head. I am doing all I can to not let him. I pray super hard every night and I know that it will help. I hope things get better soon. Maybe a change of scenery will help. I personally think it will.

I got my package!!! Thank you!! I loved it!! It made me so happy! Oh, and guess what else? Something amazing happened to me!! I woke up last Tuesday and I was completely fluent in the language! I can understand everything. What a blessing I’ve been given! I can’t explain it in any other way except the Lord blessed me with this gift. It is so wonderful and I am so grateful!! I thank my Heavenly Father so much for this gift!
Oh, and Austin’s mom wants my address so she can mail me a package for my birthday. :) Also, guess what?! Austin’s dad emailed me, and said that he is taking me with their family to HAWAII when Austin and I get back!!!! I thanked him so much for that! It made me so happy. He is an awesome guy!
Well, I have to go, but I want to say that I love you and that I really miss you. I’m really sorry about not writing yesterday again! I hope you weren’t too worried. And I will do all I can to make this week better for me. I will find the good in everything. I love you so much and hope that you all have a great week! Take care! You are all in my prayers.
