I have chosen to serve an 18mo mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "I know the Lord is loving and kind. I know that He knows us individually and perfectly. I am so grateful to be a servant of my Savior Jesus Christ. Being a missionary has already been the best decision I have made. I love this Gospel and my dear Heavenly Father."
My MOTTO: Work Hard, Pray Harder!
The One with all the Service with a Smile!
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 December. She is the cutest little thing and has been going to church for a long time but we just now got the permission form her parents to let her get baptized! It is soo exciting! It is the greatest blessing to see the Gospel change lives and help people to really grow. We also this week have helped a hermana come back to the church after 3 years. We are doing a lot of reactivating here in this mission. We have 30,000 members in our mission and the number of people who are active is 3000! WE HAVE WORK TO DO! I LOVE IT!! I AM READY!! So that is what we do everyday. We wake up and we look for our brothers and sisters who need to hear the Gospel or be reminded that they have it. The mission is the most rewarding time in my life. I have never been so happy! Also, before the mission I didnt truly understand what it meant to have a prayer in my heart always. Well, now I do! I have a prayer close in my heart every single day and second. I can see the difference like night and day in my life. I feel my Savior´s love always and there isnt a better feeling! So that is my advice this week! Seek to have a prayer in your hearts always!!!
I hope all is well this week and you are all happy! Remember that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father! I love you all soooo much!!
SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 Hello everyone! I hope that this week was great and eventful! I had the greatest week and had some crazy things happen! BUT before I start I would just like to give a shoutout to the best little brother in the world, my little Janson and wish him the Happiest of Birthdays!

You were in my heart all day long!! I miss you so much but will see you soon mu little buddy! I love you!
Okay so to start out the week we had the most amazing service project ever! We were able to help a family in great need! Sadly an entire house burnt down! EVERYTHING was destroyed and we had to enter the house and clear all the burnt things out. It was a two day job and it was pretty fun, so sad though. We would find things that were kinda okay like some toys of the kids, or clothes, or even just so…

Hey everyone! This week was a great week here in Chile Santiago Sur! We had a fun week with some great ward activities for the CHile Independence Day and a lot of success in the work! So last Saturday we had our huge ward party and we ate a yummy Chilean BBQ and had a war of Ping Pong! My comp and I were doing great until we went up against some Hermano and he killed us, but it was fun anyway!
THis week we had the opportunity to listen tto and have a Conference with a member if the General Authority 70, Elder Bragg! It was so amazing to hear and have a Conference with Elder Bragg. He gave so much insiration and wisdom for our little mission! One thing that really stuck out to me was his way of telling us how we can find and have miracles in the work of the Lord. It is a mix of three very important things, 1. Having a love so deep that it turns to charity 2. Having the highest but most acheivable expectations and 3. Integrity. These 3 things are the pathway to findin…
JULY 5, 2017 HELLO everyone! This has been a crazy, fun, surprising, and a whirlwind of a week! It started out with the BAPTISM OF GUSTAVO and XIMENA!!!! They both were baptized on Saturday and Confirmed the following Sunday! It was one of the greatest days in my mission! They are now members of the church and are working to be sealed in the Temple one year from now! I was filled with joy to see them both in white and 100% clean! True Celestial Happiness right there! Now, not everything went the ways that we wanted it to go! It is not a real baptism if there isnt at least one problem now is it? LOL. First, the hot water in the church was not working! We could not figure out why it would not turn on and could not get it to work! We said a prayer and we were coming everything we could! We figured out it was the batteries so me and my comp go running to the nearest store to change the batteries! Luckily, close by there is a store that is like Home Depot and they have all types of batterie…
