Marking one year in the field, an interview with Pres Stutzenegger and a "big 'ole bowl of Pozole"...
Today is August 22, 2016 and the day that I complete 13 months here on the mission! Technically a year from today I was still in the CCM so the 1st of September will be the one year anniversary of arriving in the actual mission field. It's crazy how we're already heading into September though!!! Also, I really I say ''It's crazy'' and then how fast the time is going every. single. email. But, it really is just that crazy to me how fast the time is going and the first thing I think of everytime I start an email. So, sorry not sorry.
Other than the time and my obsession with it. This week truly was amazing for one reason in particular. Interviews!!! President Stutznegger is a pretty amazing person and 5-10 minutes with amazing people makes you pretty happy and loving life! I love interviews, I look forward to them, and I leave them excited, happy, and full of light and love. Many thoughts, many feelings but all of them are good. It's also fun to get together as a zone and learn a lot of new things about missionary work. While the elders were in their interviews, we had a training session given by the assistants. We too taught a small part of the session so we were thinking and planning exactly what we were going to do all week. Changed the plan like 5 times but it ended up turning out pretty well. It was also awesome to see Hermana Stutz doing super well after all her surgeries. She is a pretty amazing and powerful woman so no wonder that she is already full of energy and ready to go. Hopefully, she'll have health problem free last year here in Mexico.
So an amazing day with amazing people. It seemed impossible for the week to get any better until the Hermana who we ate with on Sunday pulls out a big 'ole bowl of Pozole. ¡No manches, casi morí! After 3 bowls of what basically is ambrosia from the gods, I knew I finished a great week. Then she promised to give us an entire pot of arroz con leche this Friday. Yes, I am on the brink of tears because God is good. Have a great week everyone!
