Week 72 - (October 24) - drum rolllllllllllllllllllllllllll

And I have received my last transfer of the mission...............its crazy.

I am going to Los Angeles!!! an area called san martin and we are opening the sector. I think there were elders there a few transfers ago. That’s what I’ve heard but I heard it’s an awesome ward!! I think it’s in the city but not too sure. But it will be fun to finish opening a new sector and the part most crazy is that I am going to be with hna Talavera again!!!!!!!! wahoo!! 

But this week. My mind is in a million places and I am trying to think of a few things that we did that I can tell you guys. This week we did divisions with a few hermanas in the other zone that we are over and it was filled with pure miracles. I was with hna Salles again from Argentina and we found a few new people to teach so we will have to see what happens there. 

On Sunday, it was voting day here in Chile so we only had the first hour of church. it was super sad to say bye to the members but they are all pumped to meet you mom and dad. Already planning down, the countdown. So it was kind of like a see you later :) We are still teaching the boyfriend of the member (we two boyfriends of two members actually) and one of them Mateas, we taught him after the sacrament meeting and he finally accepted a baptism date!!!!!!! yay! Remember Carolina the super miracle? yeah well we found her again this week and she wants to be baptized still but there is soooo much dang opposition. We went to look for her and her kids on Sunday morning for the church and the police were there for something that happened to one of her kids. Are you kidding me. But I love her and she loves the gospel. 

I’m sorry I really can’t think of everything that has happened. We could do most of our studies this week because we didn’t have tons of emergencies in the mornings and I feel so much better. It’s so important to feed our spirits with the word of God.  I love you all!!! 

ps ps ps HAPPY GOLDEN BIRTHDAY TO ALYSA!!!!!!!! I hope 25 treats you so well. sending my love from Chile!!!

Week 71 - (October 17)

A week jammed full. How we like it.

So this week we had to capacitate first in the zone of Victoria. we talked about committing people to church. We talked about how the investigators are the ones who have to make the commitment and we guide them with questions. after the zone conference we did a split but worked in trios with the Hermana’s. super fun. one of the Hermana’s had an idea where we knock doors with a balloon and a little paper with a principle inside so the person in the door opens and we ask them to pop the balloon. they pop it and we testify of what’s inside and we got into a few houses haha. I was with hna silva and hna sallez from Argentina and Brazil.

we slept on the floor and had to wake up at like 530 to get ready and travel to the other zone conference in our zone. there have been a few problems so we talked about obedience. mom i told the story about the man who was hiring people to drive his vegetables down the mountain and there were 3 people to volunteer and he hires the slowest but safest one? we used that analogy and explained how God trusts us with his children when we are exactly obedient. it was a good conference. Then we did another gran intercambio but we did it where we white washed in every sector. Haha it was sooooo much fun. I was with hna naranjo from Ecuador she’s awesome. we knocked a door and found a straight golden.

We did practices and breakfast in our zone on Saturday morning and my comp and I made breakfast burritos for all. yum. 

So we have been pretty busy but with my comp we were a little frustrated yesterday after church because all of our plans fell through. So we said a prayer and decided with the goal to knock 100 doors and we would find someone who is looking for the truth. We walked out of the chapel and saw a 78 and we were like what why is that number on our board? But we ignored and left. it was pouring rain and freezing but we started knocking and door after door we got rejected. Everyone was apparently washing their baby yesterday. so we kept knocking and knocking. it was late and we were on door number 70. we had only gotten into one house but she didn’t want much so we left. we got to number 78 and knocked Natalia’s door. She opened up and we just started to testify. she let us in and told us that she has one question and doubt. where is the truth?!! is what she said. We almost started crying and testified and left. we will see her again this week but yesterday was such a testimony builder of keep going with faith. It was a trial of our faith ad at the end like always there are miracles. Plus, it was door 78.

I have learned in these past few months that it isn’t about me at all. it isn’t about if I feel like I’m dead tired or I’m freezing or we have to do this or that... it’s about others. everything that we do should be about helping others. mom you are the best example of this.
have the most fantastic week ever!!!

Week 70 - (October 10)

So this week. I am going to write with pictures because why not. We started off Monday with a family home evening with one of my favorite families of Chile. Famila Torrez. Awesome people.  Then this week we had mission counsel. We had a lady with her husband come to teach us how to teach the missionaries how they should be exercising. haha it was super funny. it was inspired though because a lot of the Hermana’s are always so sick and so she gave us a bunch of ideas. 

oh!!!! I saw Hermana Hopkins and she is finishing training this Hermana from Honduras. my other grandchild yay!

Awesome story. so after mission counsel, Presidente may and his wife were driving down to Temuco so they offered us a ride. we took the offer obviously and we stopped at their house. this is the view from their house. Absolutely beautiful. then they drove us right up to the temple. we got out to take pictures and we started talking to a girl with Hermana May and the girl told us that she was waiting for her husband to finish his work. he is a construction worker on the temple. she told us that they are getting married in February. we started talking about eternal marriage obviously and she was so intrigued. she said that she goes their everyday almost but has no idea what the temple is. they both aren’t members and she was very excited for the missionaries to pass by in her house in Concepcion. but the temple is going to be amazing here. Can’t wait. 

 So this week we found the promised street. hahha there is a sector in our area with all book of Mormon names. we actually knocked the house with this sign and she let us in. At first I was super excited because I thought this was evidence of the book of Mormon and we told the members and they told us that an old member tons of years ago named this place.

we did service as a zone in a little pueblo. at the firefighter house super fun, we sanded walls and I think that I still have dust in my nose.

SANDRA. so miracle. we were going to teach our convert Mario this week and we couldn’t enter because he was alone and we didn’t have a member so we were like Mario invite your neighbor and so she came over. she loved the service that we did in the house of Mario and she accepted a baptism date. she then came to the stake conference the next day!!! she loved loved it. hahaha when we challenged her to baptism and she accepted Mario goes [WOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I won’t be the alone anymore!!!!! let’s baptize all of the Paltos (his street)] hahahaha I love Mario Mormon. so now we are going to use this tactic to all the neighbors of Mario.

Today we went to Cerro Ă‘ielol!!!!!!!!! it’s so dang pretty the view. hahaha we saw a bunch of mapuches and they were doing some ritual,

Oh whoops it sent without me finishing. But I love you all. Sounds like you guys are living the life too. Know that I am the happiest and I wouldn’t trade my place for anything in the whole entire world. I am doing what I love and loving what I do.

PS know that there is a Hermana (basically a Chilean) kneeling and praying for you guys every single night.

Week 69 - (October 3)

So sorry for the short email. I’m short on time. BUT highlights of this week.

On Monday night we heart attacked all of the members of our ward. hahaha it was so fun. And they loved it. we taped hearts with words of encouragement on their doors and gates yelled alo and ran. I felt like I was in elementary school again doorbell ditching. 

we started teaching the members the restoration and its super interesting to see the doubts and questions that the members have. we are really trying to strengthen the ward and we are hoping that this will help. 

we had a mini exchange and I was in our sector with Hermana Lange and she is superrrr awesome. we were running over the place and were able to teach lessons the whole day. we found our investigator Oscar (ps Oscar reminds me SO much of Pablo who almost got baptized in Gorbea but then died from his cancer a few weeks later. Remember him? yeah well Oscar is literally his twin and I always have trouble calling him Pablo.) but we found him again and he has been reading the BofM a ton!!!! he marks the scriptures that he likes and he was so excited for conference. he came on Sunday morning and loved loved the talks about repentance. he said he could feel something super special but he wants to repent in his life and he let us read his notes to conference. sweet old man let me tell you. I wish I had more time to tell you about all the sweet Chileans. I love them.

We went to Victoria on Friday morning to do practices with the Hermana’s there and we talked about challenging everyone to baptism. it was cool to see their progress at the beginning of the practices until the last few. 

General conference was awesssssssssssomeeeeeeeeeee. I loved loved loved loved the women’s session and Elder Uchtdorf. His talk about faith at the end really impacted me. if you didn’t see it. go and watch it. I loved every talk in general conference. I love how it talked about the doctrine of Christ and how we need to study it every day. I feel so privileged every day to be able to teach the Restored gospel of Jesus Christ and to represent my Savior. 

love you all!!!!! Xoxox
