iPotential and Indoor Plumbing

iPad- a small, lightweight electronic device capable of displaying videos, searching text, and a ton of other things that would confuse this technologically-challenged Hermana.

Potential- Something yet-to-be. Something that could come to pass. Normally associated with the words great, promising, and the idea of something to look forward to.

Indoor Plumbing- "It's gonna be big."


The Malaga mission. They're very excited.

Ok, we are too.

It's kind-of a big deal. As in 'ship all the missionaries to Barceonla for a conference tomorrow' big deal. Yes, all of our old companions and MTC friends in the mission will be there. NO, it is NOT a party. Yes, we still have to be dignified and all.
We're teenagers, what do they expect?
Answer: We're missionaries. We've been set apart. They kind-of expect a lot.
That'll change a lot about how we do things... but it doesn't really affect WHAT we do. We still find, teach, and bring people to Christ.

I passed my 6th month mark. We ate doughnuts and burned tights (Apparently, that's what Hermanas do. Which is fine by me, I never really wore them anyway.)

We had a Stake Activity at Gulliver's Park this past Friday (which was Labor day for Spain) and it was super neat to see everyone and talk with people and be fed by members. I went on splits with Hermana Lamoreaux because Hermana Terrazas couldn't go (somehow they didn't think returning to the scene of the crime was a good idea... weird, right?). There are good people everywhere.

We've done a couple of member splits, a couple of missionary splits, and finally this week, I went out and worked with my companion for part of two days. It was great to be with her.... but she's not physically ready to work yet.
It's a come-and-go pain. There are good days and REALLY bad days. After a fairly difficult 3 hours of working through the pain we talked to President and he said that if it takes a month to heal then the Church won't let her stay.
This was week 3.
I know there were a lot of people fasting for her this week.

"Een" her element

And so yet another Monday passes in the dark.
I don't know what next transfer will bring, or what will happen next week. I don't even know what tomorrow will bring, or if I'll still have a companion.
The day is sufficient for the evils (and good things) thereof.
So I'll focus on today, and make it a good one.
Mark 6: 26-34 or 3 Nephi 13:26-34 (because they're almost identical)
 26 Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;
 29 And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon, in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these.
 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, even so will he clothe you, if ye are not of little faith.
 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
 32 For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient is the day unto the evil thereof.

Ever onward,
-Hermana Een
