Las familias son eternas...

Hola mi familia..

Hmm, pues I guess my last email must have scared yall.. But I was just being my dramatic self. Some things never change huh? Hahaha! Ah freak, well where to start.
Changes on Wednesday AND I am happy to announce that I am in AYUTUXTEPEQUE. Hahaha! So I've been here 5 changes, I will complete 8 months in this area. I love it so much and the members I am so tight with!!! The only thing is this past week was sad because we've decided to drop the majority of our investigators. I hate it, but its life. Some people just need time you know? And so thats what we will give them. I guess I just like to see it as, planting seeds for the future missionaries of this area. I am still with Martinez, she's so precious. But I ain't gonna lie, sometimes I just wanna po her felas but like.. you know, I wouldn't HAHAHA! Lino is still in my zone thank goodness! But Fiu is no longer in the neighbouring zone. He is now in Cada Sucia... its an area like 4 hours away... KUA BAX! Poor kid, but he'll do good things out there.
We are currently in the rainy season and so its been a little more fresh than usual, which is great. Over the sweaty days hahaha. Omg and WE HAVE WATER!!! You don't understand how happy I am to announce that. We got it back on Saturday in the afternoon. But LAUGH OUT LOUD because Saturday early early in the morning I could hear it was raining.. and I was like... Okay I'm going to be a little freshy right now and go kaele outside BUAHAHAHA. So I fully showered in the rain and my companion wakes up and is like "Loli es en serio?" and I was like yeah bro you better go and use the rain while you can before it stops raining hahahaha. And so we showered in the rain on Saturday. Something that I hope never passes me by in my life again. She couldn't believe it. But hello, gotta use what God gives you huh? And then that afternoon we got our water back. 

So this change is only 5 weeks, so we get cut short a week and then the next change will be 7 weeks. The change of CHRISTMASNAVIDAD where I get to see ya faces! Get excited. Omg, so baggy! Hahaha! But time is going so FAST it's scaring me.
I was talking to Lino last night about what I'm going to do all the way back to Australia by myself and I told her I think I'll ask my sisters to meet me at LAX... so get on that girlies *cough cough*. I don't want the whole flight sola. I'll probably cry the whole time. But anyways, enough about baggy talk. Hows wedding plans? Make me look good people. Not a light colour so that I don't look as black as what I already am! Hahahha. Okay... 
I wouldn't wish the life that these people live on anyone. The thing that I love though is that they are so faithful and have such a strong testimony in Christ. They are a humble people. I love this country!!!
I love my family. And want to remind you ALL that families are so important! We need to be there for each other because right now Satan is attacking families left, right and centre. He is trying so hard to break them because he knows that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is centred on 

So we need to try our hardest to do all we can to strengthen each other, lift each other up. It doesn't matter if you don't agree with everything your brother or sister says... You aren't the judge. There is only ONE judge: JESUCRISTO! God didn't put us on this Earth solo, He put us in families to make life a little easier, so that we would have people to lean on in hard times. Don't make life harder for them, try and help them with the load they are already carrying. Don't add to it.  Be nice, be supportive, LOVE LOVE LOVE and reach out!!!! Don't JUDGE!!!! Don't worry, everyone does it but try not to do it. Ah, I miss my family! I miss all of you guys and have SO MUCH TO TELL YOU ALL! But I am guessing it is best kept til after the mission hahahaha!

"Think about where you want to be and then make the choices to get there"

Remember that this life, this time, is the time to prepare to meet God. DO GOOD THINGS!!! MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!! CHOOSE THE RIGHT!!!

I love you guys forever, I love you guys so much. You don't even understand how much!

Don't miss me too much, I got work to do.

La Hermana Loli
Happy Birthday Mark! Hope you had a fantastic day!!!! Love You!!!!!

Conference pics


Okay... So you were all probably wondering when I would crack... This week has been terrible... TERRIBLE!!! And all I wanted to do was call President and ask to go home. I never imagined that I would ever feel this way before because the mission life, I was born for. So I will tell you how it all begun...

Last Monday, after we wrote... we ate together as a zone as always. And then we were going to play futbol or volibol. But then I was starting to feel sick so I tell my companion that I need to lay down for a little. We get home... and I KO!!!

Then Tuesday comes and I feel okay but then as we are walking in the streets I get dizzy and nearly die. So then since then I have been bed ridden, well kinda cos I've had doctors’ appointments. I HATE THIS FEELING!!!!! I just want to work... But these freaking parasites have come back and are killing me softly and slowly. I liked died coming to the ciburg today to write to you guys. But I wanted to write so bad and so AQUI ESTOY! Hahaha.

But don’t get me wrong, I LOVE THE MISSION. I HATE BEING SICK... But the nurse is so great, she’s been helping me heaps. Checking up on me and what not.

Meanwhile I've been dying. Super crap cos it’s the last week of the change and I wanna say goodbye to all my people you know. I've had my whole mission here and if I don't say goodbye I will cryyyyy. But thats only IF I leave my area. I am praying that I don't. I love AYUTUXTEPEQUE more than anything!

So apart from me and my dying life over here, nothing else has happened. Since all I have seen this week is the back of my eye lids lol. Oh, what makes it worse is we have had NO WATER this whole week. Yes... yes it is what you think. But I am not going to say it cos it makes me angry hahaha. Our whole area has no water and so noone has water. IT SUCKS!

But I was waiting for a bad week in the mission. I was wondering when it would come. I couldn’t have 7 months of bliss right? But even with my sickness and no water. I STILL LOVE THE MISSION. Nothing has changed with that aspect. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE MISSION. And I love you guys. I LOVE THIS GOSPEL AND I LOVE MY HEAVENLY FATHER. 

Sorry for the depressing email. Next week it will be better. Changes on Wednesday... vamos a ver! I LOVE YOU ALL!
Hermana Loli xx

PS. Mumma I love you POP HOLD IT DOWN hahaha

 General Conference this past weekend. Just, wow. I was blessed to have the opportunity to watch it in ENGLISH. I mean, Spanish is great and all but I think you feel the spirit more in your first language yeah?
We went to the stake centre and then the gringos and I (because I'm not gringa, I'm Australian jajaja) went to a room where we had the conference in ENGLISH! Saturday and Sunday. Oh my word, is was amazing. Easily the  HIGHLIGHT OF MY WEEK! I like cried throughout most of it hahaha. I know, still a sook. Its worse now. I cry at the drop of a pin man. Yes, I suck.
But anyways, the speakers are called of God. They really are, you can see the light of Christ just shine through. As a missionary watching the conference you don't apply these things to your own life, because nothing is about you anymore. You try and see if you can learn something for your investigators. But naturally, I took things in for myself hahaha.
I LOVED PRESIDENT NELSON'S TALK!!!! I need to be one of those women he spoke about! I was scribbling notes like cray cray! I am hoping that it helps my investigators in some way and myself.  I also loved, not sure who the speaker was but he was speaking about PONDERISE... You guys will see this weekend.
Man, I am so on struggle street right now. And I so needed that conference, I love our Prophet Thomas S. Monsen so much. He is truly a man of God. Our leaders are called of God and are here to serve us. We just need to hear them and apply their teachings, also there was another talk I liked... but you guys will see it this week. I LOVED THEM ALL!!! WATCH ALL THE SESSIONS. THEY WERE ALL SO GOOD.
Heed the words of our leaders. These are THE LAST DAYS! The time to prepare is NOW... That is the purpose of life. DO all that you can to preapre to meet God. Think of it this way, if Jesus came today... would you be ready to receive Him? If not, CHANGE!!! If so, congratulations... ENDURE TO THE END. Keep on going, be believing. DONT GIVE UP. The world today is full of so much evil, more than ever before.

If only you guys knew how in love I am...... with the mission.

If only you guys knew how in love I am...... with the mission.

Honestly though, I hit 6 months on Friday and just wanted to bawl my little eyes out. Time is going by way too fast and I think at times... ¿WHAT AM I GOING TO DO IF I FINISH MY MISSION?... and then I realise that its not an IF... I actually have to finish one day. I DON'T WANNA! :,(

But it’s okay because I am working my butt off and doing all that I can to help people come unto Christ, that is my purpose. 

But anyways... I don't think I told you guys but Hermana Lino is in my zone and it is just the best because sometimes I just miss home but her and Kava always remind me of my sisters. Kava was like all 5 of you in one and Lino is like Eternity and they're the same height too so sometimes I wanna cry. But I don't... well maybe I do LOL. She told me last night she wants me in her line hahahahaha so baggy... NAH JOKES. But I swear that's all they talk about at church, EVERYWHERE! #DatMissionLifeTho

Anyways, Hermana Martinez (my soa) she is such a little cutie. She was with me in the CCM and we came here together. She doesn't speak a lick of English (but we are working on that) and I am learning Spanish faster because of it. But it’s great! 

We had a baptism yesterday and it was so amazing!
I wanted to cry because Eduardo (our recently baptised friend) is just so ready. He wants to serve a mission already. He’s only 16 but isn't it just beautiful? I asked him where would he like to serve and he said Japan and I told him that's where my sister served and he was real interested in that. We try and practice Japanese together but you know how great I am with Japanese... NAAAHT! My 7th grade Japanese skills were kicking in and I remembered Mrs Dickson... #HatedJapaneseClass and her Pocky sticks HAHAHAHA. I'm like cracking up by myself here in the ciburg but like I don't care. I think my zone thinks I'm crazy. Yolo! Anyways, his little sister and brother and grandma are to be baptised on the 10th of Octubre and I AM SO EXCITED! Because, I love this family with all of my heart.

It's so weird how you only know these people for such a short time but you can love them with all of your heart as if you've known them for a lifetime. Well we did know them in the pre-existence but you know what I mean.

Tuesdays and Fridays we teach English class (Me and Lino) and it’s actually funny as. Because we speak English but we don't know the rules to it, you know? And so the classes are like... #theStruggleIsREAAALLL you know... But it’s exciting. And you realise just how hard English really is. 

Also we've been teaching this girl named Rosio, she turns 18 this month and her boyfriend is a member, she said she likes the church and everything but her mum is super catholic and so we are taking it slow with her. But she’s so nice and her and her boyfriend are the cutest!!!

Also, 6:30 struggles are real right? So we told Elder Herrera and Elder Aguilar that we would meet up at our chapel at 6am to start exercise... HAHAHAHA Like at 6:20 they call us and tell us they've been waiting for ages so we get changed so fast and book it down to the chapel. Poor things had been waiting I just kept laughing but I don’t think they were happy HAHAHAHA. So we walked down to the field to do exercise... well as much as you can do with your eyes shut cos you're so tired at that hour LOL. But it’s cool, this week we will really start doing it with excitement lol. Ahhh I miss you guys so much. This change has gone so fast. I wish it would all just slow down. I need to hold these memories forever ya know? 

Anyways today we have Pday with Zone LAYCO and me and Lino are heaps excited cos that's Fiu's zone. So Ill send photos with that next week. Anyways, I love you guys heaps. And I pray for your guys 24/8 for reals.

Oh one more thing, Bishop asks me on Friday to speak and so I’m freaking out. Then on Saturday night calls me and speaks English and says [Sister Loli, you are very lucky. You don’t have to speak tomorrow... hahahaha I was so happy. It was because the stake were coming. But yes, the best news lol. But anyways... I love you guys. 

This work is the work of the Lord, and we need to take it serious. We are ALL missionaries. SO we need to show it in every way possible. This week invite a friend to church, or work with the missionaries. THEY NEED YOU! We can’t do this without the members. The members are key. WORK WITH THE MISSIONARIES!!!! Les Amo un monton!!!!!!

I’ll send some more pictures after of the baptism and what not.

Hermana Loli LOVES youuuuuuuuuu!
