I got a little punch in the face this last week on the amount of humility I have been lacking. I have put a lot of thought into who I am here, and who I represent. Also the fact that I can not do anything without the Holy Ghost. Basically, the hand of Lord is in all the success we have seen in the mission, and we forget who is really harvesting here, we will lose ourselves in pride. The mission is something that has changed me, and helped me and continues to help me realize what I need to do better. To repent. To change. To rely of our Heavenly Father more than ever. Without Him, I{m nothing. And I know that. I am so grateful for this transfer we just had, my companion is Hna Alcantara and shes from the Dominican Republic. She is superrrr upbeat and ready to work always! So we are working to strengthen this area(it really needs some tuning up...)
Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. I continue to think about you all everyday. Remember your vision here on the Earth, we arent just here to have a family and live a little. We{re here to go to the temple, help others go to the temple, and especially go through the temple for those who have not ever had the chance. I am so grateful for this perfect gospel.

I have noticed more in this past week than ever, of how much I LOVE being here. Im not saying that this week was perfect or that it didnt have any downs. But I have just come to the conlusion that I would rather be here serving the Lord and being perfected in Christ than anywhere else. A wise elder once said, "The mission isnt a preparation for life, the mission is life." And this couldnt be anymore true. A lottttt of people I love and look up to are going home in these 2 upcoming transfers and its just made me relect on everything.
The mission is my life. It is my foundation to everything. It will forever and always be a part of me and I am forever grateful for this opportunity. I just pray that these next months wont go by too fast.
Please pray for our investigators! We have 2 baptisms scheduled for this upcoming sunday and we need all the support we can get! :) Thanks for everything. Les amo un buen, y ojala que todo esta bien.
con amor,
Hna Waddell
