I'm at my 1 year this week...

Hola hola! Que tal?? We have had a busy week here in LUGO! Tuesday we went to A Coruña to have interviews with president! They have a new capilla (chapel) there that was built this last year and it is BEAUTIFUL! If I remember correctly, this is the 1st chapel that we have here in Galicia, the north of Spain. Interviews were great and it was great to see president and Hermana pack again. They are amazing and they have a lot of work to do to travel to the areas every 6 weeks so we can have interviews. 

I think it's a missionary joke to always ask in letters "how's the weather?"... well if you were to ask me "how's the weather?" I'm not exactly sure what I should say. Some days we go out with 2 pair of thick tights, rain boots, scarfs, and then the next day we went out without tights, and we ended up carrying our coats because it was so hot! (I think it was only like 58° F, but we were sweating and so hot! 

Tuesday we had interviews with president and that took up most of our day with traveling, Wednesday we had district meeting and the amazing matrimony couple provided lunch for us- and of course guess what we had?! BREAKFAST FOR LUNCH! Pancakes, (with syrup!!) bacon, scrambled eggs, strawberrys, and OJ! 😋 BLESSINGS WAHOO!! 

Friday was the hot day and it was a day full of walking. Everything we had planned had fallen through, it was hot and we weren't exactly sure where we needed to be. We felt like we should go pass by a less active, Rosa. (We had passed by in the morning, and we felt like the afternoon maybe she would be home) we rang, she let us in and we were sitting out on her patio because the weather permitted 😁. Rosa is from the Dominican Republic and we got talking about how we wanted to drink a "morir soñando" with her one day- (it's am INCREDIBLE drink with oranges and milk and ice. Sounds crazy but you have to try it before you say anything) so, we offered to run get the supplies, we ran, came back and a small comment was made by Rosa that this was perfect because it was her birthday.... yes, JUST THIS DAY IT WAS HER BIRTHDAY! My companion and I looked at each other and told Rosa that we would be back- we ran back down to a chino (like an all-a-dollar) bought some candles, plates, and cups, and we ran to a pastry shop (which are everywhere!) and picked out a few things for our little birthday party we were going to have. For the 10 minutes we had to pull things together, I think we did a pretty good job! We celebrated Rosas 68th birthday with morir soñado and pastries.😁

Hermana Ibañez and i are doing great here. Everyday is a new adventure, we learn something new and we see new things. We laugh, we cry, we smile, we have a good time. With a few emails that I've received this week, I've been reminded that I'm at my 1 year this week... if you were to ask me how I feel, I would tell you that I feel like I still don't know anything, I can't speak the language, I don't know what I'm doing, and I feel like I just left the MTC... but then I think for split second and I realize everything I've gone through, everything I've learned. I've served in 3 amazing areas- Madrid, the islands- Tenerife, and now I'm here in LUGO the north of Spain. The days go by sooo slow, but the weeks fly. And they are flying. I feel so grateful and blessed to be here on the mission, to learn, to grow, and to help other people come to know their Savior, and older brother Jesus Christ. I'm grateful for the experiences that I've had, and the experiences, the trials I'm having to help me really rely and trust in the savior and the plan that my father in heaven has. I know that our Savior Lives, and I know that He knows each and everyone of us. Trust in him. To to him always in prayer. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of god and I know that there's power in the book. 

Have a great week, and don't forget to count your blessings- we are so blessed with the things we have. Thank your father in heaven extra today! 

Thanks for the love and support always! 

Much love, hermanita Curtis
