Soaring Over the Orange Groves

Florida is incredible at this time of the year!! The oranges are blooming and it smells like a little cutie every single morning!! The humidity is something to get used to, but once that happens its seriously the greatest place on earth! I don't know if you'll remember this, but in Disneyland they had a ride that was like a flight simulator that flew you over an orange grove and it smelt delicious -  Well that's my life every single morning as I run to the lake.

I'll be laying on the turf by Lake Eva, staring at the stars, dripping sweat from running and doing crunches/sit-ups/dying and I'll realize that even though I'm miserable, I'm in paradise. I seriously can't imagine a more perfect place to spend a couple years of my life!
Life on the mission is interesting! Its seriously the most spiritual, Exhausting thing that I have ever done in my entire life. Everywhere we go people are over all accepting of us and watch us always. They love talking to us and every conversation is a positive one. We teach over 60 people each week, and seriously names and faces are starting to blur together. The one thing that sets people apart is their stories. Everyone comes from completely different backgrounds and its so interesting to be a part of someone's life, even if its just for a few minutes.

I have never worked out this hard in my entire life and I feel like each morning might be my last.... But the miracle that I'm seeing because of these things are unreal! We have the strangest things happen literally every single day! We touch someone's life we make them smile, we help them out, its so strange to me! It's almost as if I can see God's hand in the lives of these people. The perfect timing/ the freak co-incidents. Its incredible. I don't even have enough time to talk about all the people that we've met this week. but every time I meet someone who is different and you can feel that they have something special, I put their name down in my journal and write a page about them. I use the Carpe Diem Journal for this and I hope that at the end of my mission I can read from it with you (Mom and Dad) and relate stories about these people!!!
