The One with the Bald and Frizzy

FEBRUARY 1, 2017

Hello friends and family! 

This week was a very long week with a lot of contacting and with so much heat!! It is so hot here that I am always sweating, along with my companion Hermana Knechtel. Because of the heat, we always have our hair up and I always look bald and the Knecht always is frizzy! It is hilarious and we crack ourselves up!! I am having the funnest time with Knechtel and she is a huge blessing in my life! 
This week I am feeling so much better from the weird bite I had, actually it is finally healed up! We did A LOT of walking this week because we are looking for new people to teach. We contacted, contacted, and contacted some more. We got more bald and more frizzy everyday! At one point while we were contacting a house with a very tall gate, The lady came out and my 6 foot companion could just look over the gate and was talking to the lady. We were sharing the Book of Mormon with the people. As my companion started teaching I had nothing to do because I…

The One with the Blonde Leading the Blonder

This week was the greatest week! Okay so first wer had a service project and while we were there I felt a little pinch on my leg. I hurry and slapped it away and thought nothing more of it. The next day we had to go and do my Visa work. We went all the way to the Center of Santiago to do so. We stood in line for 5 hours or more nad my leg started hurting really badly. I was feeling really worried and in a lot of pain so I looked down and I had the biggest bite on my leg! It was red and with a black dot in the middle and then my whole leg and foot were swollen! Hermana Knechtel made me call the mission doctor to get it looked at. At this point I could not really walk and I had a lot of pain in my leg. I was feeling okay but a little dizzy at this point. We called the doctor  and he asked to meet with me art the office of the mission. We started heading there and we got sooo lost. Knechtel and i are not the two best Hermanas in the mission for directions. Soooo we kind o…

The One with the NEW Sector and the NEW Companion!

JANUARY 18, 2017
Hello Friends and Family! 

Yup I have been sent to a new sector of the mission and yet again have a new companion. it was one of the hardest things to leave all the amazing people in El Parron. I cried the most when I said goodbye to my Catalina. That girl has a part of my heart forever and ever. I have been in that ward for the entire time Ive been in Chile, nearly 6 months so it was hard to say goodbye. 
I have been sent to a wonderful ward called Brisas Del Maipo. It is the best! It is very different than my first ward because of many things. One, it is huge wit many members, two it is the ¨golden ward¨ with so much support of the members and everything, and three the people in the sector in general are kind. In El Parron, the people in the streets were not the nicest but in Brisas, yes! I love it! Here is my new companion today for Pday when we played with water balloons because ITS SO HOT!
The best part about my change was that I am still living in the same house! A…

The One with the Baptism!!!

JANUARY 11, 2017
Friends and Family, 

 This week was the BEST week EVER! Yup we had the Baptism for Catalina. It was the most beautiful moment I have ever experienced! She was so nervous for here interview the day before that she even started to cry. She was nervous that the Elders would be mean and that she would not "pass". We told her that there aren't wrong answers and that they are all personal. I also called the Elders and told them that they needed to be extra nice and kind to her or else... but they were super good with her and she did awesome in her interview with such ease. I was so proud of her! So the day finally came and she looked so beautiful. She came out of the water so clean and pure. She had the light of Christ just glowing on her face. When she shared her testimony she was filled with tears and it was hard for her to find the words she needed She jsut shared her simple but sweet testimony of her Savior Jesus Christ. I was able to see it in her that she…
