DECEMBER 7TH 2016- MISSY'S BIRTHDAY!

HELLO FRIENDS AND FAMILY!! 

(pics:THIS IS MY CUTE COMP, ALSO A DOG THAT HAS A PROBLEM WITH ITS TONGUE SO IT IS ALWAYS LIKE THIS AND THEN THE BILLBOARD WE MADE IN THE CHURCH FOR CHRISTMAS! )

How is everyone? I want you all to know how much I love the letters and emails that I get. Sometimes I dont have time to reply to everyone but I always read them and have the biggest smile on my face. 
So this week has been one of the most tiring weeks on my mission. We did 15 hours of service this week and the usual is only 4... so we are just exhausted! This week we didnt have many people to teach and not many people had time so we thought we would just serve... and oh boy that is what we did. It is the best to just help people and serve them with my heart. The people of Chile have my entire heart and soul. 
So this week we are teaching a young woman who has 13 years and she is sooo great! She wants to get baptized and have a date planned for the18th of Dece…

Hello family and friends! How is everyone doing as we are getting closer to the Holiday Season? I love that we are getting closer and closer because the Spirit of Christmas and the birth of our Savior is so strong and beautiful! So this week was great! I am leading my sector and man it is not the easiest thing to do! Actually it is very hard. I have to remember how to get everywhere, and if you know me, you know I ALWAYS go the wrong way! I also have to plan what our days we be like and really remember what everyone needs so that we can be there for the people. It is sometimes really difficult, but I have never been one to step aside and not take on the challenge. I also dont mind being the leader.. I think its because I am the oldest in my family. But I am learning so many new things! My comp is in her last 3 weeks of her mission and I am just in awe of her and trying to learn everything I can from her. This week I learned all about urgency. It is different to just …

Hola mis amigos y familia!! 

How is everyone doing and feeling? I hope that at this time of year everyone is happy and showing gratitude for all the things that we have in this life. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I have just been feeling do grateful. I have never been so happy I have never been so happy in my life! The mission is the best place I could be and the best decision I have ever made in my life! 
OK so First things first, we had changes!!!! I m soooo sad. Our changes were special too. They were 2 weeks early than usual and only we had changes. My comp Hermana Ruiz was called to be an Hermana Leader. So, we had changes with the original Hermana Leaders so that Ruiz could be trained. The reason we had it early is because both of the Hna Leaders right now are leaving their missionsin 4 weeks!! So my Comp now is Hermana Ibanez and she has 18 months in the mission (She extended her mission one month). So I, having now 5 months in the mission, have …

Hello friends and family! I hope you are all happy and living life to the fullest. Life is so beautiful and we need to live it to the fullest everyday! I am doing awesome here in Chile like always. We have our 2 investigadores with fetchas and we are working hard with them. One of them was able to come to church on Sunday. He looked at us probably every 15 minutes and just smiled and said "I feel good, I feel really good". HE doesnt speak much Spanish so his sentences are always simple. It was amazing to see the Spirit just overflow during sacrament and the classes. I know that Selio was a person already prepared my Heavenly Father to hear the Gospel! He is just great and super excited for his baptisimal date!  I gave a talk on Sunday and they wanted me to speak for 15 minutes. I was super nervous because that is a lot, and in Spanish?? Oh no! I was freaking out. But once I got up there all of my nerves were calmed and my Spanish was smooth and easy.  I ended…
