I found my home in MEXICO

Hello, my name is Brittany. In the summer my family and I went to the city of Cuernavaca in Mexico for a month to learn Spanish. At first I was having a great time meeting new friends, going to school, and learning a new language. And then everything seemed to go downhill. I felt this was not like home and that nothing I could do, or that anyone else could do, would help that.

I also started not feeling well, and it was hard to focus on my studies. I had to stay home from language classes because my stomach and my head hurt. Nothing seemed to be going right.

My parents were praying for me, and I was trying to pray. I was reading my Bible Lesson* and different things in the Sentinel. But my heart wasn't in it, and I was just thinking about going back home.
