The One with Being Bold! 11-8-17

NOVEMBER 8, 2017
Hello friends and family how are you all doing this week! I am doing great here in the mission Chile Santiago South This week was a week full of conferences. We had one as the South part of the mission and then we had a huge one as a whole mission and the West mission. It was crazy! While we were there I realized how tiny our mission is and how few of us there really are. The West mission has many many missionaries and we are just so few, but we are the best! The west mission were all serious and our mission was a fun and excited! We are like a big, happy family! We had a special visit from Elder Christensen and his wife from the 70. They gave some powerful and uplifting talks! Something that stood out to me was a quote by Elder Christensen that said BE BOLD! I love this so much! It is soooo important to be bold in all that we do as missionaries! It is vital to share the Gospel and our Testimonies with Boldness! But not just missionaries with nametags all members need…

Hey Friends and Family how is everyone doing? I am doing great here in the great Chile Santiago South Mission. This week was a good week because it was a hard week, we all need those from  time to time! It was a week full of appointments falling through, walking the ENTIRE day, having to help some of the Hermanas with problems, and not having much luck finding new people to teach. It was a week that made my companion and I work and really work. It seemed to be a trial after another and every time we felt too weak to overcome them. A week like this really made me dive into the scriptures for guidance and help, and I ended up reading Ether 12. Best chapter on faith in the Book Of Mormon! I especially love a few words throughout the chapter which reads

"wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith...... And neither at any time hath any wrought miracles until after their faith; wherefore they first believed …

Hello family and friends! How was your week? I hope happy and full of love! I would like to share an experience that i had this week. This week we had a few Capilla Abiertas. These are like Chapel Open Houses. We have the people come into the church and we Sister Missionaries give tours of the church to the visitors, there are huge banners in the rooms that have points of the Gospel and we get to teach them! The Elders are our in the street contacting all the people and inviting everyone it, then the members set up stands with their organizations so that the people get to know what we do at church. So they will have a table for Relief Society, Young Women and Young Men, Priesthood.. stuff like that. They are awesome and there are always a lot of references for the missionaries in the ward of people to go visit. Well, this week my comp and I had many do, including one of them in our own ward! The fist one we went to this week there were two little children there and t…

Hello family and friends! I hope all is well and that you all had a great week and that everyone is getting ready for Halloween! This week here in Chile was a little crazy but full of learning and growing opportunities. To start out  the week we got a call from our Bishop at 6 in the morning informing us of the saddest news. A recent convert in our ward that we have been teaching lost her husband this week from a brain aneurysm. It was a rapid and uncontrollable loss.  This family has had more trials that anyone I have ever met. They have a one year old baby who had a tumor on the back on her neck and head that was the same size as her head. Part of her brain was inside of this ball, so the surges were sooo hard to do! The first one was to just split her skull open to make room, then another operation to push her brain inside her head, then had another emergency one because the blood wasnt flowing right. THe baby had a 2% chance of living... and did! She still hasnt …

Hello everyone! Happy October! A month of Halloween and the best weather in Vegas in during the fall, I hope all is well with work and school and all the crazy events in life! I heard about the tragedy on the strip and all the families of those who have passed away or been realLy injured are in my prayers and heart. I invite everyone to read the scriptures about the Plan of Salvation and I suggest reading     2Nephi 9 or Alma 40! They are centered on the Plan that God has for all of us and how there is life, a much better one, after this life. Families are forever through the Atonement of Christ and His perfect love for us! I know this to be true and it is the one comfort I have in times of despair, or sadness. He will always give us the love and peace that we need, we just need to ask for it and then listen!
Well this week here in Chile has been amazing!!! OUR INVESTIGATOR ROGELIO WAS BAPTIZED! It was the most amazing experience this Saturday filled with just the hap…

The One with General Conference!

OCTOBER 4, 2017
HEY everyone! I hope that all is well and you were all able to listen to the amazing General Conference that we had this past weekend! It was a time to really feel the Spirit and receive revelation that we need! I was able to have some questions answered personally during this wonderful conference where we could hear the words of the Apostals of the Lord! I felt the Spirit so strongly and know that God was directing the meeting!

The entire Conference I heard many things that are stuck in my mind and have really touched my heart, but I would like to focus on only one of those things, which is the importance of the Book f Mormon. We all know that Prophet Monson in the last Confernce asked us all to read and study the Book of Mormon every day. Well, I know that I took this commandment (because it came from God) very seriously.  I have seen the biggest changes in my life and only for the better since I have started to really search the BOM and apply its teachings in my lif…

SEPTEMBER 27, 2017

HEY friends and family! This week was yet another great week here in the Chile Santiago South Mission! There were some changes that happened this week, like I had a change in my companions! My new companions is named Hermana Santos and is from Brasil! Yet another comp of mine is from Brasil! She is the third one from Brasil that I have had! She is super cute and I know that we will be great friends and work well together here in our Sector! 
Now this week I was told that my family that was baptized in my last ward are moving back to Colombia! It was sooo sad to hear that they were leaving but it is because they were having the hardest time financially here in Chile, so they had to leave. I was able to go see them and spend an afternoon with them before they left though! It was nice to see them but even more amazing to see that they were still going super strong in the Gospel and had stronger testimonies than before, both with callings and actively participating in t…
