The only positive thing about this week is that next week will be better. OH and Elder Holland is coming on the 10, which we are all really excited for.I was expecting homesickness. I wasn't expecting her to start crying during the middle of the prayer to start our first companion study and decide to go home. Long, horrible story short, she flies out in less than an hour. But now I'm in a trio with Hermana Stevens and Hermana Partridge, and it's probably going to be the most fun 5 weeks of my misison (and the busiest! Our area just DOUBLED).
A funny thought I had this morning. I'm reading the Bible and this week I read Job, and he was doing really well and then he lost it all and had to be patient in his afflictions and know that even though he had trials he was still righteous. And then at the end he gets double what he had before. Well now I have two companions. I just thought that was cool.
Behind a trial there is always a blessing. I really learned that this week. And now I feel even more dedicated to the work. I love this work.
