Wow this week was Golden. So many miracles. The biggest thing I learned this week is that Satan is real. But our father in heaven the man that created all has ALL power. Including over the temptations of Satan. My beloved chica Candela got baptized this week! But on Thursday before her baptism all went wrong. Literally. Her mom called us and told us that she would not be getting baptized on Saturday. And so Friday morning first thing we did was go talk to her about everything. And she told us that Candela has had so many bad feeling and feels so sick and the night before she had a nightmare that a man all dressed in black tried to choke her and then of course problems in the family and just bazillion things. And even her dad asked her “do I have to come to your baptism?” L Hermana Liza and I just started bawling…. Literally bawling. We have worked so HARD with Candela for the past 2 months and she has progressed SO much. She is literally a different person.  I couldn´t help but think of how a lot of the time we have to experience the really bad so that we can enjoy the REALLY good. Because Satan wants us to fall. He wants us to fail. For example when Joseph Smith was in the sacred grove and he was about to receive this sacred vision that would literally change everything he felt this evil spirit and darkness and if he would have given up in that moment he wouldn´t have had the power to restore the gospel, to become a prophet and we wouldn´t be able to make these sacred ordinances. But we felt that we should share Mosiah 4:11-13

“11 And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.

 12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.

 13 And ye will not have a mind to injure one another, but to live peaceably, and to render to every man according to that which is his due.”

And she started bawling and we were just all bawling and she said that she would come the get interview by our zone leaders. So she came and she was so happy and so excited and told us that her grandpa was going to preform the baptism and it was literally the most beautiful experience.

Mark 9:29 “And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”

I know without a doubt in my mind that the power of fasting and sincere prayer is so real. It truly is a gift that we have. I know that all things are possible through our Savior Jesus Christ. And when we have faith in him we can truly create miracles.

This is the same god that “brought the children of Israel out the land of Egypt and caused that they should walk through the Red Sea on DRY ground.” Mosiah 7:19 He literally has all power. And all we have to do is trust in him and trust in his word. And all that is right and for our wellbeing will come to pass. We have to have confidence and him and nothing else.

Mark9:23 “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth”

I love this gospel. And I am just more than grateful for all the blessing that come with it. And I know that when we truly have faith God can truly have faith in us and can proceed the miracle. And ps I am staying in Santiago and we are just the happiest little humans. Okay I gottaaa jetttt jajaja

8 MONTHS woooooo yaaaaa

Well this week was just the fastest week of my life. I literally love my companion with all my heart. And this time in the mission is literally the happiest I have ever been in my life. This area is my home. I literally am tearing up typing this because these people are my family. I never knew how much these people could truly mean to me. Santiago es mi casa. And I think I might be transfered this monday and my heart is going to brake into a bazillion pieces. Awhhhh shucks. I really don´t want to leave. But I know that what ever the Lord has instore will be perfect. I just can´t imagine anything better than this area to be honest. Like I would be more than fine if I could just stay here my whole mission. We worked like crazy this week.

We were walking in the street and I started talking to this guy and we were like hey you´re more than invited to church this Sunday. And he was like ya…. Maybe I have to hit up all my parites this weekend and blah blah and we sent a message sunday night and invited him and he came! Woooo yeaaaahhhh. We have just had so so so much faith lately and so much enthusiasm and the work here really is changing. Like wow. I just wish I could sit down and type for 10 hours then maybe I could explain to some point about whats really going on here. Its really amazing to see this change in so many people and help them really recognise what is important in this life. And also our investigator Martin, is the bomb. He is the other guy we started talking to in the street and he is so ready to change his life. We had a lesson with him the other day with 4 members from our church and it was just the coolest thing to see the desires he has to change and how really God has truly prepared him for this message in this specific time. There is a billion other people I could write about but no time. Like always.

But I just really can´t put into words my love for this work and my love for the Lord. I know that every single little or big miracle that has happened in my time here is directly from him. It´s so crazy the way that our lifes can truly change when we really give our selves to him and let him guide ourlives.

Some people say that living the gospel is too hard but I think living without it is much harder

Mosiah 3: 17 And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means where by salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent.

He is the way. And he is the only way we can really recieve true happiness and eternal life. “some people say that living the gospel is too hard but I think living with out is much harder.” This life is so much easier when we realize that all we have is in and through him. Everything good is of him and when we put our trust in him and act according to his will we can really come to understand a little bit more of this perfect plan he has layed out for us. We can really come to recognize that through him we can find eternal happiness because he has all already suffered and we don´t need to. We really are so blessed. Too blessed. And I am just so very grateful for all that he has given me. I love this gospel wit all mi lil corazon. And I know that when we listen to these perfect words and commandments of our heavenly father we can find true and everlasting happiness.

Recuerde quien es usted.

Also PS this week I locked our keys in our apartment and we couldn´t get in for a whole day so we were at a members house until 11:30 and ate dinner and we had to travel to central and sleep with the other hermanas and go to our zone conference in the same clothes from the day before hahahhaha it was just dandy

Mis Queridos

Hola. This week was Gucci to say the least. Just one miracle after the other. I literally cannot put into words my feelings as of lately. Literally wow. GOD IS REAL MY BROTHERS AND SISTAS. I have really really been praying for the gift of discernment so that I may more so use my time here effectively. And this week it’s just like BOOM. I have never felt more guidance by the lord in my entire life. I never ever thought that I would feel this way. And I know I there is no other explanation than that I have really come to have faith in my heavenly father and faith in his power.

This week we were just ya know casually walking down the street with a member and I saw this man walking in our direction and my mind was like hey talk to him hey talk to him. But before I could even say a word the member that was with us started talking to him. And we shared a little bit about who we are and why we are here and how God has a plan for us and he was like yeah sure I will come to church on Sunday. And people always say oh yeah I will stop by. But for one of the first times in my mission I really felt like he might come. And on Sunday after sacrament meeting HE SHOWED UP. I literally could have cried I was so happy. And he is so ready to receive this perfect message and I am so pumped to teach him. And we have been working with an “eternal investigator” literally the missionaries have been talking with her forever and this week she told us that she never really had the desire to listen or understood anything until we started teaching her and now she is planning on getting baptized on the 28th and we are all just so feliz. Literally a miracle.

Literally a bazillion things happened this week that I just don´t have time to tell ya but just know that the work here in Cabildo esssss GOOOOOD. Literally I have never worked so hard in my entire life. Or had the desire to work so hard. I have been thinking a lot this week about our covenants. And how sacred they really are. And I really have no time but I just want to leave you all with my scripture on the week.

Words of Mormon: 1:7 And now, I do not know all things; but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come; wherefore, he worketh in me to do according to his will.

 8 And my prayer to God is concerning my brethren, that they may once again come to the knowledge of God, yea, the redemption of Christ; that they may once again be a delightsome people.

I know that my redeemer lives. I know he is literally directing my paths because I have finally let him. I know that when we put our trust in our Father in Heaven we can accomplish anything we set our minds to if it be according to his will. I know that he has a plan for us a very special plan that will lead us to more happiness than we could ever imagine.  And I just want to invite you to James 1:22 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” I truly know there is no greater plan than the plan of our Maker. And there is nothing more important for us to do in this day and age than kick our selfishness to the side and to help others know of these wide open, merciful arms and Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ. I love you all and I have to get off now. I heard backstreet boys this week when I was walking down the street and I got so pumped so go enjoy that and remember who you are and to serve your fellow beings and to stay fresssssssh. Jajajja

We got some huuurrrr treatment this week

Hola hola.

I just love this gospel with all my heart. And I just really wish everyone could feel this joy. Being a misionary is the most amazing thing. I get to literally dedicate all of my time to the lord. And It has just been such a testimony to me that when we really dedicate all of our time to the Lord and put our life in his hands every little thing falls into place. And it breaks my heart to know that so many people in the world just can´t see that and they can´t recongnize this amazing and perfect plan we have layed out for us.

Yesterday we had Stake Conference and I remember when we had stake conference when I was at home I was like woooohoooo a Sunday to stay home! But yesterday was seriously amazing. Its so cool to think that these people, our leaders have been called of and through the power of God and they have been called OF God.. They have been called to preach and to guide US specifically. Today I have been thinking alot about how we can somethimes be so blind to what we have. Especially living in Utah. It´s really so amazing that we can drive to a temple in less than 20 minutes or that we can visit temple square or that we can go to devotional almost every sunday night. The people here save money for YEARS to make one little trip to the temple. The people here walk miles just to partake of the sacrament each week. And they are all converts who started attending church with MAYBE 15 other people in sacrament meeting. They really walk by faith and not by sight. They literally devote their lives to hear the words of Christ. And almost everyday we talk about the United States and how amazing it is. But yesterday I was just thinking how lucky these people are. Not according to money, not according to fame or things of the world. But according to their richness of the blessings and knowledge of God. Their knowledge of what truly matters. The things that will last forever not just for this moment.

Its so sad how when we have all of these amazing things in front of us all the time we can get into the habit of seeing but not really looking or hearing but not really listening. We get into the habit of seeing things with our natural eyes. And not noticing these amazing things we have all around us. Really its such a blessing to have what we have and know what we know. I invite you to stop looking in the wrong direction and feeling like you are in drought but look at things with new eyes, with Gods eyes. I just am on cloud 9 here in the mission and I just want everyone to be happy and love life. So invite a friend to church and smile and little more and read your scriptures a little more. I love you all (to those devoted fellow men that still read my blog) and remember who you are, Chaucitos

Hola chicas

This week was splendid. I love my comp. She is just as cute as a button. This week was so COLD. SO COLD. Like wow are we in Utah or Argentina. NOT SURE. I really don´t have a lot of time. Its so crazy all of the cray cray things that happen everyday. And I really could not express them in the slightest in these last 15 minutes that I have. But wow.. The mission is so good. Right now we are just looking for new peeps and working a TON con inactive members. And this week we visited the sweetest family and we talked about family prayer. And how it really can change families and before the mission I was so blind to this. So I just want you to all go hug your family and have a family pray and then make it a daily thing. (I can’t speak in English so sorry if this doesn´t make sense)

But this week really was so good. I´ve been thinking a lot about doubts and how rapidly they can drive people away. I was reading a talk this week and it stated that the first thing people tend to do with their doubts is rebel. Is leave all that they have ever learned and walk away. And leave it at that. But how stupid is that? Before this life we decided to come here. We decided to have these obstacles and these tests. We knew what was instore. We knew that we would have these doubts. And this week I really came to recognize that it is good to have doubts. It’s the way we can learn and grow if we act on these doubts with faith. You would think that every missionary has this tip top testimony never failing. Buttttt that is a big juicy lie. Especially when people are telling you your beliefs are wrong every single day for a year and a half.

Jacob 6: 6 Yea, today, if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts; for why will ye die?

Ephisians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
 20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

The only way that we will be driven away from this beloved message is when we have not truly learned of Christ. When we decide to walk in the ways of men and let our doubts over come our faith. When we let go of all the amazing experiences and revelations for this split second of doubt. So today I would like to invite ya to really come to know Christ. Because when we truly learn of him and realize this perfect plan we have in store for us was solely made out of the love and the desires he has for our success and happiness in this life we can overcome these doubts. ”For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:” If we don´t use this sacred light that we have we will lose it. So go say a family prayer and tell your mom you love her and buy her some flowers this Saturday. And go on splits with the missionaries and tell someone about your beliefs and pick up some trash and rake some leaves for a neighbor and jajajja

And go eat some Café Rio for me because I miss it so much.

I love you and I miss the mountains so all go skiing and hiking and rock climbing for me.

I have never walked so much in my entire life and I have never been so tired. But I have never been so happy :D I love my companion with all of my heart. She is just the sweetest hardest working human. I knew we were meant to be best friends the second I saw that we had the same shirt from Zara. And she has convinced to move to Spain after the mission so if you could all start putting a fund together “help Jenna move to Spain” that would be great. Jajajaja

Our area has TWO THOUSAND members and 60 are active. So it is quite the dilemma. But we are starting completely new and we are going to create some miracles here in Santiago and I am PUMPED. This week we worked harder than I have ever worked in my life. Literally I have never gone to bed so tired. Our area IS HUGE. And we are trying to visit every single neighborhood but it’s really hard jaja. So I will let ya know how that goes. Really this week was just looking for new people and looking for more new people. We had a Talent night in our ward and it was just the greatest thing. I felt a little prideful when people were trying to sing in English and pronounced everything wrong. But then I was like wait this is how people look at me every single day hahaha. They had a whole light system going on and dancers it was pretty sweet. Except for the fact that everything here starts and the break of dawn so we can never actually participate in ward activities. They said that the ward party went until 1 or 2 in the morning hahaha and it didn´t even start until 9. Just like little 5 years olds running around the church at 1 in the morning hahhaha. I love Argentina.

This week I have been reading a lot in the Bible. And It just blows my mind that people can believe in the bible and not the Book of Mormon. Both written by prophets under the direction of God. If God could speak to people in Europe what makes people think he couldn´t speak to people in the United States? Doesn´t God love everyone? Questions of my heart this week. Almost everyone and there dog here in Argentina are catholic. And the other day I was talking to a man in the super market and I got his direction and we stopped by his house last night and had a good discussion with him and his wife. And he couldn´t stop talking about how amazing our church really is and how different and dedicated we are to the Lord in these troubling times. And how he is going to pray for us and the success of our wonderful work. But then proceeded to tell me how he has been Catholic his whole life and is going to die Catholic. And how he doesn´t have all of this time that we have to dedicate to the church. And pretty much how nothing we could ever say could change his mind.

 And I just thought even the will of God? I feel that sometime we are so caught up in our daily routine. Our life routine that we miss out on the big picture. Maybe even our purpose here. Are we “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God?” (2 Timothy 3:4) This gospel is perfect. I know it without a doubt in my mind. And I just realize more and more everyday of this amazing opportunity we have here on earth. The opportunity we have to forget ourselves and fulfill the will of our father. Which will bring more happiness into our lives than we could have ever imagined. But we have the option to either “give place to the devil.”(Efesions 4:27) Or give place to this perfect plan God has in store for us. It is OUR DECISION and it truly is as simple as that. And this is my rant for the day. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. And that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. And I love being a missionary and helping my brothers and sisters know of this great knowledge we have of the restored gospel. And I love my new comp. A to the men.
