Things have been good here. We had 2 exchanges last week. Exchanges are fun because the longer I have been out, the more it feels like a day just being with and old friend. It is different for my companion because this is the first time she is meeting everyone. But she is social and seems to love it. We were at a fireside with lots of other missionaries last night and she said, "You should introduce me to your friends." I said that I only had like two friends there. I know all of the other Hermanas pretty well, but I hardly ever talk to elders or English sisters. So then she forced me to meet new people. We are probably pretty good for each other.
We have started playing sports at the church with the elders in the mornings. It is usually a good start to the morning, except for on Friday when I sprained my ankle. It is looking significantly better today. Now it is less swollen than my knee, which is swollen because somehow I got 10 mosquito bites on it. Just one of those weeks I guess.
Our friend came to a baptism this week. She showed up about an hour late, but at least she made it in time to see the confirmation. That was especially good because she had just been talking with her earlier that day about how much of a blessing it would be to her to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost after being baptized. She was impressed by our explanation. Then she said, "So that's why you keep pushing baptism so much. It's because you know it will bless me." And we were like, "YES!! :D You understand!!"
I know that this church is true. I know that the covenants that we make with God are essential and have the power to transform us. This life is great. It's may be hard sometimes, but it is the best.
Have a good week!
