Okaay this past week was interesting, we worked and then my companion said he was sick, so we stayed in tuesday?? i think it was. Then we took him to the hospital the next day. We go all the way to the hospital in mazatlan because thats where the insurance covers, and its free. He got a check up, and he told the doctor he has heart problems, and they start doing all this stuff x rays and take his blood, study it, and then they come back and say he has bronchitis, and then the doctor sayed that he will stay in the hospital for a couple of days, and a couple of days means more than just two days. This whole past week we were in the hospital because my companion has bronchitis, he was really week, and really sick for like three days straight. But he is well now, we were just told this morning that we are free to go. We are now in our area again. ha My companion still says he has a lot of junk in his chest, but he feels a lot better, But yeah i slept in the hospital for three in a half days, Missionaries brought me food every day so that i could eat also. It was mostly the hermanas that were in that area where the hospital is. They brought us food, and then our zone leaders brought us food. They were all very nice to us and helped us out. It was the most boring week i have ever had in my mission of doing basically nothing. I read in the scriptures, like i told everyone last week, that i finished the book of mormon. sooo i started the bible while i was in the hospital, and its going well, i feel like i am reading at a descent pace, and i am understanding a lot. Im like twenty six chapters in, Learning about abraham, and isaac. rainbows, and noah and the ark. sara, and everything. It is going very well. I have always wanted to say, YES i have read the bible. ha its a big book.
My companion is doing a lot better, he looks better than he did before. I feel bad though, it takes a lot away from his training, we didnt have anything in those four days to be able to study. No books, not anything, just our scriptures. and he was sleeping a lot of the time. we had a pretty good time together though, it was fun. We have lots of pictures. But there is not going to be much for this week, because there just arent that many things to tell. Yesterday a cyclone hit a little pueblo next to us, we had missionaries their. I dont know if they got evacuated or not, i dont know how bad it hit, i hope it wasnt too bad. I dont think it was. It was just a lot of rain. It rained a lot here yesterday. I can slowly feel the temparature going down, it makes me super happy. It just means we wont be out working in the super hot sun... I swear everything that every body talks about around here is hey que dice el sol..... ahhhhhhh well waht do you think im in it also.. ? its like us saying hey whats the weather like.... and being outside. I feel like sometimes the sun has fried some people down here... a little bit too much. : D ha but no they all are really good people, i just feel bad for these changes right now, because we have been sick a lot. and we havent been able to help our investigators progress how we want them too in these moments. I hope for the rest of the change nothing happens again. Free from sickness por favor.
We had a cool experience in the hospital, we talked to a cleaning lady, and she accepted the missioneras to go to her house, and we shared her a few things from the scriptures, and she was very interesting, but also wants to know more. So that was good that we could talk with her. I feel like every moment is a contacting opurtunity, i have trained myself to just open my mouth and just start talking in the moment and i know that god will always give us an oppurtunity to put the gospel in the conversation. I have seen it all throughout my mission, and it is true. There are moments in my mission and the same with everyone elses where you dont open your mouth and then the question comes up later in the mind..... ahh why didnt i talk when i had that impression. Its difficult to think that sometimes, but we cant punish ourselves for a simple mistake like that. we need to remember that our heavenly father has a moment place and time for everyone of his children. Thats what makes me love the gospel soooo much is that one day everyone will know, whether there heart is hard or not. I know this is the truth.
Sometimes we forget that we are sons and daughters of someone who is called the almighty, i sure do sometimes, but we need to remember that, two sundays ago thats what i talked about with the youth, is who we really are, and where we really come from, i would just like to leave with a scripture that i really like its in Mosiah 27:25. Remember always Of who we are, and where we really come from. What would the world be like if we all remembered that of every minute and every second. As my family i would like that you all remember this week and forever, of who you are and who the people are around you, when it comes to a hard time, or a difficult time, or a happy time. It doesnt matter, but what does matter is that we are all sons and doughters of our great heavenly father. Love you guys have a good week.
love elder fellingham
