I cannot even contain how much love I have for the people here and the area! I love Mexico so much and everything has been so fun! I dont know why but I just have felt such such joy this week and love for The Lord.
I am in Tecamac, with my amazing companion Hermana Diaz. She is so helpful with me learning Spanish and such a great missionary example to me! Our area is huge, and it is a new location for both of us but these past two weeks we have been just getting to know the different locations and meeting the members and everything.
One of our areas, Tenninitula, was having a fair this week and it was so fun because we were able to meet and contact so many people and they were so kind and gave us food for free that they were selling at the fair and it was just so much fun! And then Mexico Independence Day is this Friday, so we have been able to help people decorate their houses for it!
Most of the time, I dont know the words that people are saying, but I have faith that as I keep trying and working towards understanding more and more each day- I will eventually get it. And the gift of tongues is real as the Lord is helping me to remember things I would not normally think of to say.
I am reminded of a great scripture found in Doctrine and Covenants 84:82 which reads, “For consider the lillies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin…”
And to me it just feels me with peace that The Lord will provide for me in times when I am weak- I have felt that before and know it is a continual promise.
