11/3/2014 - Mazatlan Letter & Pics


Hey Everybody,

    So this week has been wonderful! we were able to help a recent convert move houses and clean. Funny guy, so he had us mop the same floor about 5 times to clean, to soap, to wash, and to disinfect. It was crazy! Anyway we were able to eat pizza later, super good!  we also had divisiones, where we change companions for one day and the Sister Leader can talk with us both and see how we are doing! it was fun because i was able to be with Hermana Fernandez again, the one who was in the wheelchair and i pushed her around everywhere, she was a good companion! and funny.  Anyway, all of my companions before are now Sister Leaders, Hermana Ruiz, Hermana Vazquez, Hermana Fernandez, Hermana Brown is with a Sister Leader training, so yeah that should be good, and my companion now will most likely be a Sister Leader, i am so grateful that i could have all my companions and learn from them all, its amazing to see where they are now and how they have progressed in the Missionary Work. 

    We changed houses! super excited, we had Elder Palacios and a Brother from the ward come and take a huge table full of things and walk about 3 blocks down the road to our new house. And Elder Jones took two small tables, it was hilarious, but later helped take a whole bunch of stuff up the stairs and move beds around. They were awesome! Our New house is definitely a blessing from Heavenly Father, we are so blessed to have  two bathrooms and a kitchen with living room and we are truly blessed to have a washer and dryer. I put my clothes in, and 1:30 hour later everything was dry and folded in my room, where as if i washed by hand, 3 hours later, with sore hands and sweating and all of my clothes still wet hoping that i was able to clean them efficiently. So when we changed houses i usually am fine if we both planned and know together where everything goes, it fine. Well, it didn't quite go that way and i started worrying if there was something wrong. My companion was putting everything in a place where she wanted and i just sat there waiting and i didn't know what to do or how to help. I was getting upset and thinking this isn't fair i want to put things where i want to and not just her. Well sitting in my attitude i remembered a quote Attitude determines Altitude. I realized i was in the wrong, i should help my companion with anything and if its just moving some things, who cares, there just things. I learned a valuable lesson, i just needed to change my attitude.

  We headed to Bolichi this week! Bowling! super fun with the whole zone! and then later we ate at Carl's Jr. Remind me next time to order with out grease, but so delicious i loved it! I love doing things with my zone super great! We were able to wear jeans! i love serving a mission it is amazing, there is always a lesson to learn and a principle to apply! There were so many times this week where was frustrated and i really didn't have patience and was upset because it was not what i wanted. We are so blinded when we only think of what we want, sometimes we hurt other peoples feelings with out knowing it. Or let down expectations of those who look up to us. I love what Jesus Teaches us about Patience, Alma 34:40-41, Romanos 5:3-5. Love, Patience, Attitude, three things in life that are necessary to live with yourself, others and Heavenly Father. 

     Well that is all for now, i love you all, thank you for your support and those who send letters. i love you!

Always Happy,

Hermana Newmeyer
