Very fast week. I feel like I was emailing only a couple days ago. I hope you had a good halloween! If you didn't send my pictures, that's fine. I'll be here next week ready for them! haha
They actually celebrate halloween here. (Everyone told me they didn't) It's not much different. Kids trick or treating. Bros smokin bowls haha. Halloween actually effected me a lot, so I'm going to write about it! and the temple :)
Halloween was friday, and I woke up very discouraged. Discouraged from the night before. From the bad number week, I was thinking of all these missionaries here. 1 to 23 months in, struggling, and I thought. Man what's the point? What's the joy here? Then I thought about life at home, my family, and all the hardsips that come with you know...life. haha I am now reminded that life ain't all sunshine and rainbows, anywhere. Get over it. (To make a long story short)
President Bosweel came to our house Halloween morning. (When there are 200 missionaries in the mission, it's not normal) haha my heart was lifted. He pulled me aside and we talked about the email I sent him last week (Everyone emails him every week) He said things that touched my heart so deeply, That I knew without a doubt God heard my prayers, and President answered.
Even when we have the worst days, we can hold on happily if we have peace in our hearts. Peace comes from prayer. The transfer ends tomorrow, I think Elder Allasia is going to be transferred. Next Monday my life can be totally different, I'm grateful for the peace I have that overcomes the fear, and well lets face it, I'll probably get furious for a good minute or two. haha
Also! We're going THROUGH the temple on Thursday, you know. In Spanish. So I'll let you know how that goes. haha
Keep a journal so you don't forget every holiday like I have. Have a good week. Keep the prayers comin!
This email was short because I have some mad emails to catch up on.
Tell me what day Thanksgiving is on?

"Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it'll elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things it comes and sits softly on your shoulder"
