Don´t cry for me Argentina
Well...I guess this is pretty much it...seven days...seven more days to work my heart out in this beautiful country.
Honestly I'm kinda at a loss for words, I still can't believe that I've actually reached this point. It feels pretty unreal.
I´m going to miss this place. The amazingly blue skies, the loving people. I´m going to miss speaking spanish in the streets and chasing dogs in the alleys. Working in the rain and sweating in the sun. I'm even going to miss the sight and smell of burning trash in the gutter and drunk guys yelling at us from the sidewalk. Especially I will miss testifying of my savior Jesus Christ, being one of his official representatives. Having His name upon my chest.
What better way to get to know your maker than to spend time in and with his creations. In the the service of his sons and daughters.
I really have come to love this country and this people. And more than anything I have come to truly love my Father in Heaven and and his son Jesus Christ. And they love us so much more than we know. This gospel is true and this is the true church of Jesus Christ.
I love this work. His work. I wish to dedicate my life to it.
This last week was great! We finally finished all the apartment inspections which is a relief. Transfers are all ready to go to, it´s weird to think that I won't be part of the next one. This wednesday Elder L. Whitney Clayton is coming! What a blessing that will be to the mission, we are very excited.
Thanks for all of your support and prayers! Have a great week, I love you all!
See you...soon :)
Con mucho amor,
