Last Friday we got another opportunity to go to the University. That was awesome. There are people here that are looking for this gospel. We got some numbers to give to missionaries out in the field. One lady asked for the address of the church.
Tomorrow we get to go on splits with missionaries in the field. We will leave for half the day and go teach lessons, contact, and just do whatever our companion for the day has planned. I am so excited! Please keep me, my companion for the day, and the people we meet in your prayers tomorrow.
On Tuesday a bunch of people left the CCM for the field and then a bunch arrived yesterday. Since we've been here longer, we were given silver stickers to put on our name tags so that the new missionaries can distinguish between the new group of missionaries and the older ones. So, we all now have dork dots on our name tags. It's great. The dots give us a sense of superiority since we are so well-learned in the workings of the CCM and, of course, all-knowing (in case there is any discrepancy, that last sentence contained a dorky dot of sarcasm, and we are not all-knowing, hence the given name of the dots: Dork Dots).
I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a missionary. Nearly every day, my companions and I express some sort of gratitude and wonder at having this in our lives. The Lord is so good. I love Him. I love God. I love the Holy Ghost. I am grateful for opportunities to come to know each one of them individually and develop my relationship with each one. They are one in purpose, yet individual beings. I love that, throughout our lives, we have many opportunities to know and love God, to know and love Jesus Christ, and to know and love the Spirit.
Also I love all you guys! Hugs :)
Our view from our room. Pretty grand, right? The temple is right in our line of sight.
This is a picture of a typical lunch they serve up for you. The different kinds of meat and rice vary every day and so does the bowl of beans. You pour the beans over your rice and eat them together. So so good. I love Dominican food, or at least what we've had here.
The bunch of hermanas that left for the field on Tuesday.
Write me! I would love to hear from you! :)
