When my companion and I finally got home after this extra long day that felt like weeks, we just laughed and thanked Heavenly Father in prayer for the craziness and that it all worked out in the end. I hope I did not sound like a whinny missionary complaining about the hard days in the mission because that was not at all my intention. I just like to be honest and take ya'll through the adventure I had as I re-cap my amazing, unforgettable experiences. As I sit here pondering about these past 3 days, especially yesterday, I feel bad for not being more of an optimist and not 100% thankful for everything like I should have. It is easy to look at all the things that go wrong in our lives, or the people that let us down, but it is way more important and worth it to look at/remember the good in everything. There were so many good/great/awesome parts of the past 3 days as well. We got a family married. They are now not breaking a huge commandment, the law of Chastity. We will have a baptism for them on Saturday. They will be clean of their sins and take upon them the name of Christ. We had so many other people in our ward that actually did what we asked them to do and more. The wedding was awesome and fun and everyone had a blast. I could go on and on about all the positives. Now thinking about it, I should have just done that in this email in the first place.
But anyway, this week was a mixture of emotions and I am so stoked that it isn't done yet! Baptism Saturday, it will be great!
Love you all. Sorry for the long, dramatic novel.
