I realize how that it has been a while since I have emailed. Some of you may have heard that I did get sick. So the last few weeks have been crazy. I got a new companion a few weeks ago. Her name is Sister Hussein. She is from Fiji and my batch mate from the MTC so it's so fun to be companions.

Ok so a the week I got my new comp I was feeling sick. I was having on and off fevers and super bad body aches. Then I started getting rashes. So I knew that something was wrong. Thankfully I know what the symptoms are for Dengue because I had almost all of them. So my companion and I had to go to MLC for a meeting and I was just looking like crap and not feeling good. Sister Aquino said as soon as I get back to the area to get checked out before other symptoms come. So I did got to the hospital and tested positive to dengue fever. So I got admitted and was in the hospital for 3 days. They had to monitor my blood platelet levels because that is the next stage of dengue. Thankfully I caught it early and got on taken care of before it got worse. I was really lucky with my case of dengue. I was very thankful to the Elders who gave me a blessing and for the really awesome doctor who when out of his way to monitor me because he knew I am far away from home and wanted to make sure I wasn't going to freak out. (little did he know I have spent plenty of time in the hospital) But I was very thankful to him. Everyone in the whole hospital knew of some white girl and black girl staying in the hospital. I had lot of missionary visitors. Anyway I was able to be discharged after 3 days and later that week I started back into work. The sickness and going to MLC made it so I was out of work for 10 days. MY companion and I were thankfully to be able to get back to work. 

Just so you all know I am now back to 100% and ready to go again. Also this last week I was able to skype my family for the last time! It was so great to see them and talk with them. 

Thank you all for your love and prayers for me. I love you all.

Hey family. I just wanted you to all know that I am out of the hospital. I am now doing ok. I still feel a little funny, but i am happy to be out of there. I hope you weren't worried too much. But everything is ok right now. I had a great Dr. I have a follow up appointment and follow up blood test on Thursday. So things are looking great. I love you guys lots. I cannot wait until Skype. Just let me know when you all want to do that. Thank you for the prayers and everything, I know the Lord blesses the missionaries.

Hello Family and Friends, I hope that you are all doing well. This week was good. It has amazed me all the things that I have learned throughout my mission and this week. So what happened this week?
Mon; P-day of course :)
Tues: We tracting like I have never experienced before. Literally the whole day. Thankfully one lady actually let us teach her. She has some great potential. I am hopefully that she can progress. 
Wed:We had exchanges. I worked with Sister Servesa for her last ever exchange. We worked in my old area. It was nice to see some of the members and old investigators. We also found 2 new investigators for their area. IT was a successful day! 
Thurs: I don't know why but I had a lot of worries when I woke up. I just felt like I had a heavy heart. So literally the whole morning I was praying for help to keep focused in the work and not to have worries. I just couldn't wait to go out and work. And by the end of the day I was smiling and laughing with just my spirit totally changed. To the point that I can't even remember why I was worried. It's 100% true that happiness is found in the service of others. It really was a wonderful thing to finally experience for myself. I just had a ah-ha moment. I LOVE being a missionary and getting to serve the Lord. 
Fri: We got to clean the chapel for our service project. 
Sat: We worked for most of the day. We had a missionary fireside where we joined with the youth and the YSA. They had us join in a scripture trivia game and then my companion and I showed a video about fellow-shipping. I am not sure if you have ever seen this. But it something I wish I would have watched in young women's. 
Sun: Church :) Also before church we worked and got to teach 2 families :) 

Well that's really all for this week. It was great. I hope that if any of you feel weighed down with burdens and trails that you find someone to serve. "As we loose ourselves in the service of others we discover our own lives and our own happiness." Dieter F. Uchtdorf 

Until next time
