I felt like such a failure and I was so frustrated that i couldnt help but solely because I couldnt understand. Afterwards Hermana Echegaray explained to me what happened, and of course, what i had studied that very morning would have been perfect for her to hear. So Thursday was horrific, and then Friday started out just as terrible. We kept getting interrupted in our study and then we didnt get to finish our weekly planning because we had to go give keys to some people. So my attitude was horrific, but i didnt know what to do. I was praying so fervently that God would help me. Then, Mom I read your letter. Each week i print our your guys letters and oh how glad i was that day to have done so. You talked about patience and not running faster than is meet. I knew that I needed to have patience. So we left our apartment at 1130 for the chapel to have interviews with President and Sister Rasmussen. I could already feel my attitudfe had changed just a little bit. Thats when I saw someone sitting down reading when we passed by. I felt the urge to go talk to him and at first I kept walking, but then I felt it stronger and I kept looking back, until finally I stopped Hermana Echegaray and we went back. We talked with him and oh the spirit I felt!!! We got his information and although he is not in our area, I knew that I had listened to the spirit and the gospel was going to bless his life. We have given him to the other hermanas and soon we will see how he is. So I walked into the interviews exponentially better, but afterwards.... Guys. God has a plan for each of us and he knows us much better than we could ever know ourselves. I know that President and Sister Rasmussen were called as this time to be the Mission Presidents in Piura, Peru. God knew that on Friday, July 17, I would be dying for help. President Rasmussen taught me greatly and helped me with some of my worries. And oh how heavenly was Hermana Rasmussen. Bless her. It was so close to having you here Mom. and yet I know you would have done the same thing as her. She made me feel so loved and I was able to feel like someone truly understood me, but little did I know before that someone knew me much much better, my Heavenly Father. From there on out my week has been so so much better and my drive for missionary work is back in full force. Yes one of the lessons I am learning at this time is immense patience, but im grateful that God sees and understands me and i know he sees and understands each and every one of us. I LOVE HERMANA ECHEGARAY and we have grown so much closer.

We received this letter from The Piura Peru Mission today
And then we received this from Kayla-
Hey Hey Familia!!
I officially made it to Piura! and Safely! This morning has been very busy morning but as soon as we landed, the words that came to my mind were "Welcome Home". I have met President and Hermana Rowley but tomorrow they leave and Presidente and Hermana Rasmussen arrive. I have felt so thrilled to get out AND WORK! Partially because Sunday we watched "Meet the Mormons" So good!) It is so beautiful here but it isdefinitely a desert. In the city there are stark contrasts of living and supposedly this is the nicest part of our area. The farthest area in Piura is 5 hours away! For some reason I haven't had any "shock" yet but maybe that is a good thing! Anywho I miss you all so much! I wish that you could be here with me. But for now, I don't want to be home. This is my short time to serve God and do so with all of me!! Hope all is well and God is with you <3 <3 <3
