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 the Colombian Family!! 6/29/17
JUN 29, 2017
Hello everyone, so I am writing and it is Thursday because the system was down and we couldnt write yesterday! I am going the make this short but important!
Ok so we have a family from Colombia who we have been teaching for awhile! We have been trying to put a baptismal date with them for a long time and it never seemed to follow through! There was always a problem or issue that they had to accept the date and commit to be baptized. We have been praying and fasting very long and hard that they can feel the peace and will to be baptized and make this very important and vital step in their life. They had issues with the Word of Wisdom, and issues with tithing to start. With time they told us, you know what Hermanas, we understand know why it is important to make this offering to God and we want to show Him that we love Him so also we are going to keep the Word of Wisdom!! WOW miracles! Then they had to find a house before they should be baptized, so they looked for a house a d they found one in ONE DAY!!! With the faith that me and my comp had in the Lord and also Gustavo and Ximena, they are going to be baptised here THIS SATURDAY!!! WE ARE SOOO HAPPY AND EXCITED FOR THEM!!! IT is just amazing to see how much the Lord can do and all the wonders her does for us when we have the sufficient faith and hope in Him. It has been a crazy couple of days but we are ready and excited for the baptism of a FAMILY this Saturday! They are working to go to the Temple to be sealed in one year from Saturday as well! THIS IS THE WORK OF THE LORD AND SALVATION!!! Bringing families together forever! IT is the best job in the world to be a missionary and to help the people here in Chile! I love being a Sisiter Missionary and serving the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength! I love you all so much and will see you next week!

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…
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! It was this past Sunday and he is now 15 years old!!! I cannot believe it! HE IS HUGE! I hope it was the greatest day little man and I hope you know how much I love you and thought of you that day! 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…
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…
