Mom. You rock. And you worry too much! I am doing great here. Haha But truthfully, I am doing really well. Yeah, I may not like every companion I end up with...but recently I have been really studying the atonement and it has helped me a lot. Even though companions can drive you crazy and are sometimes hard to deal with the minute you forget yourself and view them as Heavenly Father would, you begin to see their good qualities. Trust me on this...I have to do it every day, sometimes multiple times in a day haha. I absolutely love being a missionary and helping others through their hard times. Yes, there are difficult days, but during those days if I focus on the good and it becomes a whole lot easier. In perspective, there is very little time out here in the mission field! I only have less than a year left. SCARY!!! haha.
Also good news!!! The St. Maarten Sisters are coming here to Barbados tomorrow for trade-offs with Sister Robinson (who is the Sister Training Leader, how cool huh?:)) and they are bringing my package with them that has been there since Christmas time!!! I am so excited. Sister Clawson was able to get it out of the post office for me. So I will get my package on Wednesday when we see the sisters for lunch. I am excited. I have been waiting so long for it. I love getting stuff in the mail.:)
On Friday I was on trade-offs with one of the other sisters and so we were in her area working. So, Barbados is super flat. Hardly any hills, and when there are hills the people tend to try and avoid them. So picture this....A stair case with 107 stairs to get up a small hill. Doesn't sound like a whole lot, but when it is super hot, you are super sweaty and tired from walking around for hours...it really gets to you haha. So me and Sister Maughn (not sure how to spell it but it sounds like mon) had to climb up these stairs to get to part of her area. Boy am I glad we did. We met so many great people up there as we were contacting! Some were so prepared!! It was such a great experience. We did great WORK!!!. And best of all, we had fun while doing it. :)
