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 General Conference! 4/5
APRIL 5, 2017
Hello Family and Friends,
I hope that everyone is well and that we were able to watch or listen to the beautiful General Conference this past end of the week!
I LOVED IT!! I obviously watched it in Spanish so I am waiting for the Liahona to have it in English too! But it was so powerful and I got so much out of it! One of the things that first comes to my head when I think of General Conference is The Holy Ghost. There were so many talks on the Spirit and the importance of listening to it. When I was a little girl, by that I mean all the way up until the day I left for the mission, my parents would always say "LISTEN; LISTEN THE FIRST TIME!" This is exactly the same with the Holy Ghost. Most of the talks were all about us needing to listen the first time to the promptings of the Spirit. Sometimes we ask and ask for help or answers but we forget to listen! It is like calling someone, asking a question, and before the can answer, hang up the phone! Doesnt work lol! THe Spirit talks to us, softly and quietly, but He speaks to us and all we have to do is listen!
My Companion and I had a great experience with this this week! We are still looking for new people to teach, as always as a missionary, and we went about it in a different way this time. We looked up names that are in the area book from missionaries in the past. We prayed about it and listen to the spirit to tell us which names we could visit. We came up with 2 names that we felt inspired to go visit. We listened to the spirit. We visited the first house and the woman came outside and talked to us. She told us the Hermanas passed years ago but she couldn't talk to them because she worked all day, but now she is free in the evenings and is now listening to us! We really saw form experience that if we listen to the Spirit and just does what He says, we will be blessed! We listening to what the Spirit told us and we found this woman! THe other name we also visited and ended up having 2 people interested in listening to our message! Miracles happen, when we simply Listen!
Today we went to the Temple and had the most beautiful experience, like always! I am loving it here in Chile and the mission!
SEPTEMBER 13, 2017
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…
