what a week!! or 2... or 3...

[May 28, 2016 email]


Sorry about last weeks letter, i know it wasn´t the longest letter... but i only had like 10 minutes to write, so sorry!!!  but ya we are having a lot of complications in the mission lately and several missionaries went home for a various of reasons, that and we have 2 more that potentially might go home this week.  Its been really hard for the assistents and president because we should have like 200 missionaries in our mission and right now we have like 182 or something like that, so they have had to close some areas and find some "short term" missionaries to help fill in the missing spots.  That and i am the only one who can legally drive in the offices, so i have spent almost all my week driving! Which is a bummer because due to all this stuff is happening we have only been able to leave and work in our area 1 day this week! and like 2 days in the last 3 weeks! i love what i am learning here and the chance i have to be with president, but i am so ready to just return to being an "normal" missionary... but i just have to work hard for the next 3 or 4 weeks and then i am going to leave the offices! So ya there really isn´t much to write about this week, other than emergency changes and stuff like that... but as i have been thinking about my time here in the offices and what i have learned i realized the other day that the greatest thing i have learned here is to rely on the Lord.  There are so many times when we are getting ready for a flight or some emergency that we weren´t ready for, and i just have to stop to say a prayer, cause i don´t know what else to do... and everytime that i have looked for the lords help, it has come.  About 2 weeks ago we sent a missionary home, and we found out on monday morning, and he left monday night at 1 am.  and so we got everything ready and showed up to the airport and everything was fine, we sent him through security and about 10 minutes later he came back out, and aparantly there was a problem with his visa paperwork, and we ran to customs and just all over the place and the lady who was working didn´t understand what we wanted to do and we had gone through this same process before but the worker was just making it so much more complicated and the whole time i was just praying that this elder could make his flight.... he entered through security with 2 minutes to catch his flight... he made it... I have said this so many times and every single one of here in the offices recognize that the work we do, wouldn´t be posible if it wasn´t for the help we get.  It truly is a miracle the mission hasn´t burned to the ground! 

Well that is my thought for the week... Have a good one and know that i love all of you!!
