hows everything going! Ahh what a week haha. this week we had our zl counsel so that was cool, got to see all my buddies again. we spent Tuesday morning in the temple with president and then had zl counsel. how blessed i am to serve under such amazing mission presidents. it was an awesome day, president ardila reminded us of the importance of doing things daily to be a better missionary (which over all makes us a better person) after the zl counsel we headed to tarma to do a zone meeting thursday. and thursday i stayed in tarma and had divisions with ELDER CAPPS, haha i love that kid. got back to my area and well we have been working like normal in our area since then. and well this is my last days working in my area....changes are wednesday and well im going to LIMA. im not sure what zone but they told me im going to lima, so wednesday will be my last day in la oroya. its really been a growing experience being here. its really one of the toughest areas in the mission and i cant believe i made it 3 changes here. i have learned a ton. i have really learned how to depend on the lord for strength and guidance. and im definitely gonna need that in lima. apparently its a little harder as zone leader in lima because the zones are bigger but im sure ill be fine.
so hows everything going with the family?! thats so cool that grandma reports to the mtc today! is her mission 3 years or how long? and is she gonna have the same comp the whole time? im just interested, i have no idea.
hows school going for the kids? and hows your job going mom?
As far as the package this week . . . hmm lets see what coukld you send for me... the smores pop tarts would be nice, that keychain if you can find it, i liked the airheads and skittles and beef jerky and peanut butter? a good toothbrush, im tearing through those things here. a nice sports update maybe from someone at home and maybe those frootie things or the fruit flavored tootsie rolls and regular tootsie rolls and idk whatever you can think of. oh and last thursday i finally sent the package of photos and letters so keep your eye out well yesterday was a weird day. i looked at my watch and realized i had completed 13 months wooohoo! i need time to slow down. but then i realized it was september 11th, i cant believe its been 10 years, i still remember that morning when it all happened. so i spent alot of the day reflecting about that.well im gonna write president right now. and ill send to you when im done
well family if there is anything i can emphasize it is do all you can to stay close to the lord. just like president shared with us in our meeting this week. we need to stay fortified and strong and we can do that by reading our scriptures and praying daily. dont ever get to complacent that you forget to feast daily on the teachings of the gospel. it will protect you and keep you strong. it will keep the advesary away. thank you for being such an amazing family. i just want you all to know how much i love and appreciate you and I may not have shared that with as often as I wish, but i want you to know that i do. continue to do the things the lord has asked you to do and i promise you he will pour out the blessings upon you. i am so grateful for this opportunity to serve. thank you for all your love and support and i will talk with you next week from LIMA.
love elder paolacci
