Best and Worst Week

What up yall. This week has been a roller coaster. It started out as just a normal week then about half way through it turned into the best week and now it has turned into the worst week lol. It was the best week because I had a spiritual experience so incredibly strong it changed me and my mission. It's too personal to tell though. But then after that it turned out to be the worst week because I got a stinky EYE INFECTION! 

So we were biking down this big hill the other day right after it rained, and the water on the ground was getting thrown into my eye by my bikes front tire and my eye became infected. It's a pretty scary ugly infection and I could potentially lose my vision in my eye but I don't think I will. I have to do 2 eye drops every hour and during the night we have to wake up every two hours and put in my eye drops. Haha we haven't gotten a full nights sleep in days so that kind of sucks haha.

The start of his eye infection



But Elder brown has been so good in helping me and I'm grateful for him. Also all of the members here are so awesome! Sister Chris and President Yap have brought us food and have been taking good care of me. I have to keep my eye closed for the next 5 days so I'm currently typing with one eye. I'm sorry for how bad my spelling probably is lol. But I'm pushing through and I think it's starting to get better.

Elder Brown gave me a blessing that told me there is a reason I have been called to Singapore and that reason has not yet been fulfilled, so I have no worry about having to come home or anything. Also the specialist hospital here is very nice, in case any of you thought I was going to the one I described in my first email. It's a specialist hospital and its way nice. The eye specialist that is working on my eye had me come in when they were closed and came in on his own off time just to help me so that's a blessing.

Other then that it's been a good week. Not much done because I've just had to sit in a dark room all day. Ping pong last Monday was way fun. We taught some lessons earlier this week that were so good! The spirit was so strong during them! The guy we taught was A***. He is the most prepared person I have ever met. He's so good and I have no doubt in my mind he will get baptized. At the end of our lesson with him we asked him to give the closing prayer and it was so dang good haha it was better then some of my prayers! Lol it's been awesome. I love my mission! It's so challenging but so fun! It's also so different here but so cool! I have had so much spiritual growth this mission it's crazy.

I love you all thanks for all your prayers and support. Keep praying for my eye! Peace out.
