Today and this letter is all about patience and how we can handle it, for those who really know me know I am not too patient but I am learning! We had this huge battle with our mamita, I don't know if I told you guys but I was sick of the way she was treating us, she was calling us the most dirty and sloppy missionary's she has ever seen and how we need to learn how to stop being pigs and stuff. the other thing that bugged me was how she uses three liters of soap in almost one week, sometimes two, that's two batches of laundry which consists of seven shirts, socks and pairs of garments and maybe pajamas! Man what a joke! So I don't know to much about laundry granted but I went and told her if she really needed to spend all that laundry on one batch of clothes. She then told me that in "my ignorant culture" its not a problem but here you have to be clean! huh funny but the USA is so much cleaner then here, anyway so I decided I am going to switch mamitas and I switched to this one lady who reminds me of my mom so much I love her! "Don't worry mom I will send pictures" but anyway it was really cool and I talked and switched but it took a lot of patience and she was very angry, I realized though that patience is not showing your anger until after you Can let off the steam for just a little bit longer, I love learning all these attributes of Christ!
I learned a ton this week about being a leader and about how a leader "shows how" I love this phrase and I will use it for the rest of my life, how can we be leaders in this world and not show how? I don't understand that haha but we will always be great examples to this world we first lead by example, we look for those little lost sheep and we first show how to come back into the fold, but once we are working with individuals and not a group as a whole we need to focus on them and how we can show how. But I love all my one on ones I have been having with president lately. It's been motivating me a ton and I really love all this support and how I can really act in the name of the Lord.
Quick note, the love I have been showing and feeling for these people is huge, no words can physically describe the love and the pain I feel when people chose decisions in this world!
I love you guys so much!
Sorry this letter is short today but hey I want to tell you about my prayer lady haha We asked her to start from the first of the Book of Mormon and what happened was incredible, she is now in one week in Third Nephi! what!!!!!!!!!
