One week into the mission field Kara sent this email for everyone on how she is doing:
the mission is amazing i love the MTC. It super hard here but i love every moment of it. Thank you for all your support. this week is one of the hardest best weeks ever and i loved it. the spanish is coming i dont believe i'm doing very good i fill like everything is going over my head but i have faith as long as i do everything right the spnish will come. we had a frieside last night by L. Lionel Kendrick he is one of the seventy and is an amazing man. He talked a lot about following the missionary handbook but the part that stuck out to me the most was that its normal to be discourage but it means the spirit has left you so get down on your knees and pray for the spirit. The lord loves us all and wants the best for every one of us. My companion is Hermana Wiscomb i still gettin use to be around someone 24/7 is not my favorite thing to do but even though she has faults as we all do she is amazing and she trys so hard what more can i ask for? My district is so close it tooks us a couple of days and the first days were hard because of that but are district is so much closer now. The hermanas in my zone are amazing and always there for me. I just love the MTC so much. I've been able to learn all my weaknesses and strengths and i wouldnt have it any other way. Missions are not easy but there worth it! my one week here has felt like a month i'm not even kidding. I love serving the lord so much. this is where im suppose to be. I have to go my time is running short we only have 30 min. I would love you all to write through dearelder.com the letter comes that day and its free.
