The Falda prepared a wonderful birthday cake for me and was filled with tons of "Dulce de leche". Which is amazing and super "UNHEALTHY"! :) So unhealthy that it didn't pass the health inspection in the states and it only exists here JaJa. It was a day full of mixed feelings of happy and sad tears of saying my farewells. At night, I got a phone call from President asking to come to their house and right when they opened the door, Hermana Parreno sang, "Happy Birthday" in ENGLISH! Ha Then grabs me in a great big hug and slaps three giant kisses on my cheek. Then she comes running out with ice cream with a firework on top!!!
Tonight, they showed us a video they are going to share with all the missionaries before they leave this mission. Once again, a day filled with lots of emotions of both happy and sad tears. I'm definitely going to miss The Falda and I will never forget it! I'm excited to get out and do something new with a new area, new people, new companion.....which I will be raining :) Not sure where she's from or who she is just yet...but I'm ready to work hard and have mucho exito!
I know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ and that He loves us dearly. He has a plan for every one of His children at the right time and right place. I'm so grateful to be an instrument in HIS hands. I've never grown so close to my Heavenly Father and His love. The key to eternal life is the atonement. He died for us, but He was resurrected. He lives and He loves us. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Homework: Read Jacob 5 and pluck away any "bad" branches in your life and grow a better/healthier garden :) (Life) so that you can obtain that good fruit (blessings).
