In the mission, you'll find yourself moving around quite a bit (some more than others) and for that we have a very important rule: Travel Light. Baggage is not a fun thing to move around, whether in suitcases or relationships. 2 suitcases and a carryon is all you've got to take home, so there's really no point in having more stuff than that. And as far as relationships go, I got really close to the members in San Sebastian, and it has been hard to leave them.As far as whitewashing goes, though, Caguas is the ideal. It is a super supportive ward of I don't know how many people. Too many to count. It's a good thing I'll probably die here because there's no other way I'll get to know everyone. It's city (when I called the office the first day, the senior missionary said, "Oh Sister Kirkland, you're back in civilization!" Shut up, don't remind me), so there's a lot to cover, but the members are always available to give rides. And there are a lot of funny people here. Morgan, who is a convert from Provo who served a mission and met her Puerto Rican husband on LDS Singles; Nancy and her daughters Tatiana and Damara, who are all very spunky; and Aida, who insists that we call her "abuela" but also insists she's 15 (sometimes 13). Our ward mission leader has set a goal of 30 baptisms for the year, which is a bit lofty but something to work towards. All in all, we're ready to work!
