Transfers are tomorrow and it is bittersweet because I am losing Hna Vladez. I knew we were too good of friends to stay together–dang it!! But I am staying in my area and my new companion is from Honduras named Hna Alonzo. I’ve heard she’s crazy so that’s a good start. My health has been a roller coaster this week but nothing too serious so I’ll leave it at that.
When people read my name they always say, “Like Taylor Swift?” haha! Good thing I love her! Fun facts from the week: I accidentally walked into a barbed wire fence, I got told I could get along with a rock.
We had a family come to church and one of the kids ran home without anyone noticing. We are expecting to get hit with a level 3 cyclone tomorrow so we are all a little nervous and have our 72 hour kit ready.
My favorite scripture of the week from my studies is ! Corinthians 10:13, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” I LOVE this! Every trial, temptation, or addiction, that we may have has God’s PROMISE that there is a way out and you can be freed. He has an eternal perspective and knows us better than we know ourselves or our abilities. Sometimes it feels like He trusts us a little too much with the trials we are given, but He knows what we need and we can handle. I find so much comfort in these words and I know that we are never too far gone and that we can overcome anything with the Lord’s assistance.
I love and miss you guys so much!
Con mucho amor,
