Hello! I cannot believe that it has already been a little over a week since this transition to be a service missionary. I still don't have an official assignment, but the ball is rolling on that. For the time being I have been working with the spanish program sisters here in the area and that has been fun! I have had 6 companions and 3 areas I've been helping out in. It is different than what I am used to due to the cultural differences, but it's good. I do miss Germany though. I will always be a German on the inside haha.

I think the biggest thing I am grateful for this past week is that through all the changes, the miracles do not stop. I remember one night with one on set of my companions we were knocking on doors and this one window stood out to me. As we were approaching the building we talked to a latino man and exchanged information and found out this same window was where he lives. That was pretty neat and helped me find more comfort in knowing that God does have a plan for all of his children.

Being a service missionary is different than being a full-time missionary. We have a different handbook and schedule to abide by. Though I am still waiting for assignments I do have an idea of what I will most likely be doing.

This transition is not simple but it is also not impossible. Every day I gain a better understanding about who God is and how he works among us. I know without a doubt that he works among us through our faith. I know that when we prepare ourselves to be instruments in his hands he enables us to do great things. I know this is what brings me the most joy, being an answer to others and helping connect them to their Father in Heaven. God is a God of miracles and he does not work in darkness.

I'm sorry this is short but I have a lot of cleaning to do haha.

Les amo,
