February 9, 2015

WOW things are just going crazy. First i just want to start of by saying that i love you all so deeply and hope and pray that you all truly feel those prayers in your days during the week.

 Also for it being Valentines day on Saturday of course we have to do the only thing that missionaries can do on a date like that and it is BAPTIZE! SO this last week we put a goal for our investigator Ingrid for the 7 of march and she said no better yet how about the 14 of February it was so awesome so we just said of course. So we are prepping for that it is going to be so cool because she is a lady who has been in her bed for 30 years and then just recently has left like 5 times in a wheel chair with tones of pains from her house only because she wants to go to church it is so amazing. I am so impressed by he power and excitement it makes me so happy. Also we have been teaching another awesome lady who is really a blessing from the members that we found her through a member and wanted to go to the temple and we just said better yet why don't you prepare to go into it one day. She said yes i want to be married in the that temple. It was amazing so we put a fecha for the 28th of February
so i am really excited for this next month and makes me really happy that my kid gets to start of with some solid baptisms in his mission.

Also a special shout out to my best friend Elder Overstreet he is such a huge example to me in my mission. Anyways I love you all so much and hope that everything goes well for this next week.

February 2, 2015

So to all my fans back home i just want to start of by saying this week was a lot of travelling and waiting so i wont have a ton to say except. I HAVE MY FIRST CHILD IN THE MISSION! He is super cool my new comps name is............................ELDER RINCON for all the gringos back home that means (elder corner) but also there is a spider here called the Rincon and it is super dangerous so people love to give him crap and tell him he is scary and timid haha but he isnt either of those things. Haha he is from colombia and has a sweet deep jungle accent. He has a big testimony and really wants to be obedient which really makes me happy so we can get some success here also he really looks up to me and that makes me really happy. Its really fun training someone how the mission works because there will be hard times but you will be there to pick them up shine there shoes and get them going again.

As for the week i spent all Tuesday travelling down to antofagasta, then Wednesday we had the conference to introduce the new missionaries and then that night got on the bus back to arica, and got here on Thursday morning tired as could be. Then i just spent the rest of the week having my comp get to some of the members and the investigators which was fine. Oh yeah also we had an awesome activity for the ward we had a karaoke night it was super cool and everybody wanted me to go sing but I didn't really feel like that was the best thing a missionary should do and i didn't want to try to sing in Spanish because they sing so fast sometimes and the song they wanted me to sing was really fast. So it was basically a set up, so all in all i didn't but we got tons of people to come and it was super fun.

Except for that everything is really chill and super fun we are going to start the good stuff this week and hopefully everything will turn out great. Also i just want to give you all a shout out that I love you and pray for you and love to see that my prayers get answered when you all email me so thanks and love you.

 The first one is of my trainer who i found when i went to antofagasta and he will finish the mission in 5 weeks so that was probably the last time i would see him for awhile it was super awesome to see him and then go get my kid who is the second photo.

This one is of the activity that we had and it was super fun.

 This one is of me and my comp eating like 3 giant hamburgers that a member made for us after our fast that day. I felt like i was going to die after.

January 26, 2015

Ok so to start off this week i have to just say this was one of my favorite weeks in the mission so many good things happened a few bad but more good than bad! I really cannot believe how much the lord has blessed me in this last week.

So to start of number one the week started of a little like good because we have an investigator her name is Ingrid and she is literaly bed riden because she has a problem with her back and hadnt left her bed in 30 years and now she has left 2 from her bed and has gone to church it was incredible! literaly a miracle in my life to see someones faith so strong to go to church like that it really made me happy. Although one of the sad things that happened with her is that she earlier 2 weeks ago she accepted a date to be baptized and just barely we were talking to her and she was terrified about it and she still wants to be baptized and said she will attend but just not yet does she want to be baptized. UGH it was really lame so we will try to push her and help her get there but for now she is stuck.

Also so during this last week was the last week of the transfer so we had been working our cans off to find new people so we could have my comp leave this sector feeling better than he found it because before i got here he told me that the ward was good but the missionarys were dead and hadnt had a baptism in months so this last transfer was more of a redemption for him and the ward which is fine i have tended to have to do that lately. Although what was awesome is we challenged all the members to go and find one person and bring them to church to double the attendance  and if they did we would make them a big ward activity just to celebrate that we had and now things are coming true we had three members invite us over to teach somebody and 3 of them acepted a date to be baptized and 2 came to church it was amazing.

Also some sad and incredible news that makes me really excited. Number one we ended our transfers and got my comp was leaving and i am staying to train so in other words. I AM PREGNANT i am going to go meet mi HIJITO in antofagasta on wendsday i am so excited to train someone i cant even begin to describe it. I will send you all info on it next week.

well to end i really have loved all of the prayers that i really do feel that you guys sending me and my investigators do too they have really told me that they just feel acompanied all the time and it is so great keep it up.
