Hump day?

I don't like this whole being here for half of my mission thing. It's like all of a sudden I went from being "still new" to "almost going home" from what everyone is telling me. Haha not even close! 
This week has been greeat. I love general conference! I felt like all the talks were about learning to rely more on the Savior and really studying his doctrine. I really really like when that one guy (sorry i forgot my notebook haha) talked about really giving service in the church, and not making excuses when it comes to serving. When he asked "do you think these bretheren behind me say they are too tired, or it's someone elses turn now?" or something like that. I really think of how sometimes here I do get really tired, but I've realized that this time is so short, and then look at our amazing prophet! I mean our whole lives here on Earth should be dedicated to being in the Lord's service. Not just 18 months or 2 years or once a week on Sundays. I realize when we receive a calling from the Lord, no matter what the sacrifice we need to put that calling before the things we want. Trust His plan! 
Speaking of trusting His plan i've really had to be doing that lately...We have a lot of great progressing investigators who are really ready for baptism, but these obstacles keep getting in the way (They can't get married, no permission from family members, etc etc). I've really learned to control the things that can be controlled, and allow Heavenly Father to take care of the things that can't be. 
It's so so christmas time here. And it's weird because I feel like it's been summertime for the past 9 months haha.
Anyway I love you all, that's all for this week. Salamat sa pagmamahal ninyo!
