The Last Hurrah

Hello, Hello!!!!! This last week was full of craziness. Everyone kept on asking me when I was leaving. And honestly, telling them Wednesday, I don't feel like the time for me to go will come. But we were able to work hard this week. 

My zone leader wanted everyone who was finishing the mission to baptize this last Saturday. We had an investigator who could do it if we could get her excited to be baptized. So the Elders came to work with us on Wednesday and Elder Garcia got her to say yes!! So exciting!! the sad thing is that the rest of the week we could not find her.....Friday night we were able to find her and she told us that her dad would not give her permission until she turned 18. We were a little sad because we had hoped for a baptism to end our time together....but we trust the Lord. he knows when and why. He knows when these people will really be ready. And he knews what we can handle and what we need to learn!!! Maybe I had different things to learn than baptizing 100s of people!! 

I am so eternally grateful to my Heavenly Father for calling me to serve a mission. It has been the hardest thing I have done in my life...but I have learned so much and forever changed my life. I hope you are ready to see the new Sariah!!!! I have grown to love the Lord and this Gospel more than I ever have. I have learned to appreciate the Atonement and apply it to my own life. I have learned to love God's children a little like he does. I have a firm knowledge that God loves each and every one of us and that he cares so much for us and our happiness. I know that He has a perfect plan for me and for all of you!!! It is hard sometimes, and we fall sometimes, but He will not leave us alone, he is always with us to encourage us and help us feel his love. I know that we are in the truth!!!! And I am so grateful for that!!! I know that we have prophets and the authority to perform ordinances and make covenants so that we can make it back to him someday!!! I know that Jesus came to earth and suffered and died for us. And I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has changed my life and I have seen how it has changed the lives of so many other people!!!! 

There is a lot more that I have learned!!! But that is just a little bit. I know that the real test will be living the things taht I learned after the mission. But I am grateful to all of you for all of your support and love!! I couldn't have done it without you!!!! I hope you know how much I love you all!! I am excited to see you!!! 

Thank you again!!! I sure love all of you!!!! 
        With all my love, 

 Hermanita Morey :)

Never Look Back

Hello!!! Sorry, the time passed by SO fast. I don't have much time to write the long letter. But I will write a bit. 

This week has been very good!! I went to my last interview which was weird. Not ready to think about life yet!!!! But it was good and I felt like he helped me to know how to make some decisions! And I could feel his love. But still not ready to leave yet :) 

I have two quotes that will be my moto this week: Never Look back, look at what we still have to do!!! (Elder Dube) And A fundeamental Question remains to be answered by each of us: shall I falter or shall I finish? (Pres. Monson). So That is what I will be thinking as my time comes to an end. That I have to take advantage of EVERY minute!! As my companion asked me this week: Why do I still have a week left? To Baptize and retain!!! Woot!! 

But I sure loved the conference!! The talk that really touched me was the talk by Elder Martinez. That answered questions that I had!!!! I sure loved conference and am excited to read them later on!!!! 

Thank you for all your prayers!!! We have been able to find some people who are really progressing well. We think they may close our area. We are a little sad about taht....for the people we are teaching, but the Lord knows best!!!! But I am super happy here. Happy with my companion. Happy with the work!!!! 

I hope you know how much I love this work, how much I love the Lord. I have a greater determination to do what is right!!! I know the Atonement will help me become and do what I was meant to!!!! 

I love you all!!! Until next week!!! 

Love, Your nica Hermanita!! Morey!!!! 

P.S. Sorry for not writing more!!!
