Well, this week flew bye so fast!! This morning at 3:30am, I got a call from a district leader about a sick sister in his district and how she was freaking out and wanted to go to the hospital. So, I then had to call her and help her. I talked to her about 7 hours before and told her to have medicine by her bed in case she woke up in pain. But apparently she didn't have any left so when I called she went looking for pills that they had and she found an antihistamine. I told her to take it because it would at least make her drowsy and she could sleep. All she really had was the cold but she took it and I'm pretty sure everything went well...well at least she didn't call me back so I think so. haha My comp and I are trying to work as hard as we can in our area and we have found a few new people to teach this week. So, hopefully we will be able to teach more people in these coming weeks.
This week I also found out about the passing of my cousin who was just 16 years old. It was super difficult when my mission president called me into his office and told me the situation. I was filled with so many emotions of sadness, anger, shock, and just didn't know what to think. However, after about 15 mins a huge wave of peace came over me and I stopped crying and I just felt calm in my heart. It was honestly really strange. But later, I was thinking about that experience and the only conclusion I can come up with is that it was the Lord comforting me through the Holy Ghost. I know that God knows each and every one of us and knows each of our situations perfectly. I know that we are literally His children and He is our Father. I also know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for each of us so that He may know exactly how to help us during our trials. I know that families can be eternal through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I know one day I will see my cousin Bryson again.
I know that the Plan of Salvation is true and is perfect. For those of you who do not know what The Plan of Salvation is, I invite you to ask your Mormon friends about it or go to www.lds.org to find out more about this amazing plan that explains to us where we came from, why we are here on the earth, and what will happen to us after this life. I love you all and thank you so much for all of your prayers and support!
