I had a rather interesting week this week, mainly because on Tuesday, I woke up with my eye swollen shut and an itchy rash all over my face. With the help of Sister Silcox, we decided it must be an allergic reaction, so we went to the pharmacy to buy some anti-allergy medication.
Unfortunately, they didn´t have any non-drowsy kind....So I was pretty much a zombie all week, falling alseep any time I had something to lean on. We didn´t really get to work for 4 days straight because of that, which was quite the bummer. However, we had lots of funny moments (including me falling alseep on the bus and falling out of my seat onto the floor) and I got a lot closer with my companion(s). I know Heavenly Father will help us make up for the lost days if we continue to work even harder than ever. And now my face is pretty much back to normal! Yippee!!
Christmas was great, especially getting to Skype my family. They´re the best :) I know that family is so essential to God´s plan for us. He put us in families so that we can know what it means to love and be loved. And if you´re having problems in your family, don´t get discouraged! Families are by no means perfect, but with the Gospel, patience, and a lot of love, I know that any family situation can get better. I love my family so much!! And I love promising the people of Brazil that they can be with their families forever. What an amazing gift that is!!
Sorry that I don´t have much more to say about this week (I was sleeping through a lot of it haha) but I´m so excited to get back out and work even harder this week! The Gospel is so good and I can´t believe I have this opportunity to share it!
Keep praying and have a fantastic New Years!
All my love,
