so it looks like i will be giving you all a big hug in ONE YEAR! holy cow. time is flying! i thought that since i hit the six month mark in my mission that i would change my weekly update email to a "bre update" and write the things that i have learned these past six months.
in the past six months i have learned:
to eat chile... with everything (fruit, suckers, rice, soup... you name it)
to eat tortillas with every meal
to speak spanish (well... almost)
to take a freezing cold five minute shower every morning
to love the Book of Mormon
to share happiness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone that i meet
that Jesus Christ is my Savior and redeemer
that i am a daughter of God.
i couldn´t be more grateful for the past six months that i have had in my mission. i feel so lucky for the opportunity that i have to be here in mexico serving the people of merida. i have learned so much these past months and i know that the things that i have learned are things that i couldnt have learned without the decision to serve a mission. the only thing that i haven´t learned so far in my mission is how to endure the heat here! PRAY FOR CLOUDS.
i love you all,
SEE YOU IN ONE YEAR!
