Hey guys, thanks for all of the emails and the information! I had no idea that Jeremy was leaving on his mission this week to Argentina, that´s pretty crazy. I have been trying to think about all of the lessons and the things that I have learned on the mission, there have been a lot of awesome experiences that will change my life forever and will change my vision of a lot of things. The more I learn, the more I find out that I know nothing. Funny how that works out. The Lord wants us to be humble though so that we can be teachable, and I know that I still have a long way to go to be able to learn and have knowledge.This week was really cool though, we had interviews with President and I asked him how he deals with stress and how he is able to concentrate on one thing when so many things are happening in his life. He taught me an awesome lesson. He made a comparison talking about what happens when we shake a bottle of soda and open it and what happens when we shake a bottle of water and open it. Then he shared a cool scripture of when Christ says, ``I am the Living Water.`` I had never looked at it that way. President told me that with everything happening in our lives, we decide how we are going to deal with it and how we will react to stress and how we will control our thoughts.
There weren´t too many other things that happened this week, not a whole lot of news. I´m still really nervous and scared to come home though, but it´s normal....probably haha. I can´t believe that we are already entering into December this week, such a weird thought. I don´t know where time has gone, seriously.Well, I hope that you all have a great week. It is nice and rainy here so that keeps the heat down, but it is still really humid. I just can´t win seems like. I love our Zone, I´m grateful for the missionaries that I have met here on the mission and all of the lessons that I have learned from them. I love you all and hope that you have a great week.
Love, Elder McDonald
