This week had a lot of ups and a lot of downs. Just yesterday for instance... the water went out around 8 am before we headed off for church. Hermana Luna opened the faucet to check if there was water, and there wasn't, but then she accidentally forgot to turn the faucet off again. And so it just so happened that while we were at church yesterday the water came back on and our entire house got flooded! Normally after church we go eat lunch with a member and head out to visit, but we forgot a notebook so we had to run back after lunch. Thank heavens we forgot that notebook because if not it would've been a lot worse. The whole house had about four or five inches of water. Darn!!

I know yesterday could've been a day that could've saved or ruined my relationship with my companion forever. Even though chances are we will be transferred this week, and I will probably never see her again in my entire life, except for maybe once in a while on Facebook since we are from different parts of the globe. The most important thing is to always take care of Heavenly Father's children. Hermana Luna has had enough bad thoughts about herself from her own head, she doesn't need it from me. People are always more important than things. And now all is dry and clean again and it feels like nothing happened. We just took a few hours to sweep out all the water and put things in front of our fans yesterday, and now all is well. The Holy Ghost is real and saved my friendship with my comp and taught me that it is not always necessary to be right. You can be right and vengeful and angry, or you can be happy. You can face your trials alone, or you can face them with the Spirit and angels to uplift you. Stay calm. Any object, no matter its importance cannot go with you after this life, but the souls you encounter will exist forever and will remember you, and will remind you of how you treated them in this probational time be it for the best or for the worst.
In other news... Elder Alonso of the Seventy came to visit us this week, so that was cool. I always love going to zone conferences or when leaders come to visit, because it's always so special with all the missionaries. It's the only chance I've got perhaps in my life to have those special opportunities. We'll see what else Heavenly Father has in store for me.
I love you all very much and hope you are all doing great. I thank you for your examples and your love and kindness towards me always. Tell Hunter good luck with his roommates, and tell Molly good luck with Driver's Ed. I hope everything goes awesome.
Lots of love
