But something I have learned from this week is how important it is to accept the will of God. And not just accept it... but to align my will with His will, have faith and trust in it, and be happy. This can be hard at times. But it is something that we should all strive to do.
Now I am in San Lucas Toliman. In the mountains. Not just by the mountains. Literally in the mountains. Our area from one side to the other in a bus is probably about 3 hours in bus. There is a central part but then all throughout the mountains there are little towns with just a few houses. It is so different in everyway than La Gomera.... hahah... my surroundings, the weather, the climate, the people, and the language. Yes. They all speak a native dialect. Some can kind of speak spanish and some dont know spanish at all. For real. It is so different. But I love it. I love the people. And I love my companion as well. Her name is Hermana Miranda and she is from El Salvador. This is her last cambio in the mission. She is super awesome and I am learning a ton from her.
We travel in buses. big ones and small ones. But we also travel in something called a flete. It is a pick up truck and we all stand in the back of it. There are bars to hang on to. It is like a roller coaster ride because they drive like crazy here in Guatemala. It is super cool. And literally... This place is beautiful. We are pretty high up in altitude because sometimes we drive through the clouds. Sometimes I cant believe how beautiful it is.
I love you all so much and hope you have a good week!
