I can't believe that another week went by!
Well, to be honest, the days were super long and the week as well. But now that my time is running short, it scares me a bit. I know I have plans for my life afterwards, but I don't want to give up the life I'm living right now. It's really a once in a lifetime chance, and I love it here. Though at the same time, I'm really excited to see everyone at home. I get more and more mixed emotions as time goes by. Though when all is said and done, the moment that I have to study, plan, or leave to teach, I'm always focused in my goal and in the people here.
Not much has been hapening here. Things are a little slow, but we're finding a new person that really wants to learn every now and then. Though there seem to be a lot of obstacles in the way. We'll just stick in there and do our absolute best to keep these people going.
I keep looking back at who I am and the amazing change that the Lord has worked in my heart. I know I'll never be the same as I was before. And I'll certainly by happier. The Lord has helped me feel free of doubt and pain. No, life isn't all the color of roses, but it's fulfilling and joyfull each day, despite the problems. It's the happiness that I've always looked for in life, but didn't find until I really started to follow Christ. I dearly hope that everyone can find the same happiness. I know that's what's brought me here and kept me here. I know that same feeling will make me want to share the Gospel when I get back.
And if there's anyone who's reading this and wants to fill in the holes in their life or find the purpose of life, take a step closer to Christ. It doesn't matter where you are in life, member of the Church or not, there's a step you can take towards Christ to fell the healing in His wings.
Take care, everyone! Face the future with faith!
