Eight Months!

Well, 😮😮😮 that’s basically how I feel about the fact that I hit eight months in the mission today, and sometime in the last few weeks it’s been a year since I opened my mission call. I don’t remember when but I remember June, ha-ha. Time goes by so fast! These last two weeks have been some of the most challenging of my life but it’s been good too.  More than anything, we´ve just been running to keep up with everything we have to do. ONE MORE WEEK! And then back to normal because the cambio (transfer) will end. The meta de excelencia (goal of excellence) of our mission for new investigators each week is ten. That’s a lot. We don’t meet that all that often, Hna Marques and I usually get between 7 and 10. In our first week with Hna Hudson, we managed to find 8. I was surprised beyond belief that we managed to keep our nuevos up. But this week, we found 13, I don’t know how that happened. This is actually the first time I have ever been able to find more than ten in one week with my companion. 13????? what??? I just don’t know how that happened..... That’s not true, it’s because Heavenly Father knows we are working hard, and he makes our time count for more because he knows its precious. 
I don’t know why, but I’ve been thinking a lot this week about what I’m gonna do with my life when I go home. I was thinking that I’m nervous that If I make myself really busy, I won’t have time to do the important things, like study the scriptures, go to the temple, do my ministering visits, and go help visit with the missionaries. But I realized that it will be the same in that moment too. If we fill our schedule with good things and we have desires to stay busy, but also keep finding time to those essential things, Heavenly Father will bless us so that we can make it work. If as a really important surgeon, and a teacher, a father with I don’t know how many kids, President Nelson could be called to serve as a stake president, we can all find time to labor with the Lord. Well, that’s all for the week!! I love you all, please write me!
