10 Months and still chillllll

I literally don´t think there is anything better than sitting on my bike at a stop light and inviting people to know about the restored gospel. Definitely FUR SURE one of my favorite things I have done in the mission. I feel so white and so nerdy but it’s all good in the hood ya know. As long as I’m helping people to know that God loves them, right?

Its finally warming up herein Argentinnnnna and am so happy. But mosquitos are real and my entire hand and legs have been the size of a balloon thanks to these deadly thangs. But the work is moving forward. Slowly but surely. We are going to make some big change here in Oran. I hit 10 months in the mission this week and I am in shock. And it just makes me so grateful that I still have 8 months. I really honestly can´t imagine real life. It freaks me out jaajaja.

This week was so sweet la verdad. This week we were visiting a family and their recently baptized daughter decided to go and visit people with us. Her mom has been a member for ever but got offended when she was pregnant with her first daughter and decided to leave the church and after 20 years her daughter found the missionaries and decided to get baptized. And when we finished with all of our appointments we went back to her house and it was already time for us to go back to the apartment so that we could plan for the next day but I just had the strongest impression that we need to share a message with their family. I even had a scripture engraved in my mind that I knew I had to share. I didn´t even ask my companion I just pretty much told them that we were going to share a message with them realllllly fast. So we entered and her dad was there who isn´t a member and has NEVER accepted the missionaries and he decided to listen to us. And right when I saw him I knew why I felt that prompting. Then we shared a scripture about family prayer and committed them to start praying as a family every night.  And then we ended in a prayer on our knees and I just felt this love that God has for us as his children stronger than ever before. I just feel so blessed that God trusts us enough to help this sweet little family find their way back on his straight and narrow path. And this trust that he has in each and everyone of us to help our brothers and sisters. There is not a doubt in my mind that there are always always people prepared to receive this message in our lives. Whether we are in a foreign country or in Mormonville  Utah. God is always preparing our loved ones and all we have to do is open our hearts and God will fill our mouths with the words that they need to here.

Alma 35 ¡He aquí, sus almas son preciosas, oh Señor, y muchos de ellos son nuestros hermanos; por tanto, danos, oh Señor, poder y sabiduría para que podamos traer a estos, nuestros hermanos, nuevamente a ti!

11 Y toda tu obra será en Sion, con toda tu alma, desde ahora en adelante; sí, siempre abrirás tu boca por mi causa, no temiendo lo que pueda hacer el hombre, porque yo estoy contigo. Amén.

Don´t be selffish, and pray for an opportunity to share this amazing message and help our heavenly father in this perfect plan that he has for us. I love the gospel with all of my heart and I love teaching people about this love that God has for each and every one of us. And teaching them that because of this love that he has for us WE HAVE A LIVING PROPHET who is leading and guiding us in these times of trouble and doubt because we have a God who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Manejamos en seguridad

Well my new area is just swellllll. I don´t remember if thats a word in english. We have bikes and helmets and I literally feel like the biggest nerd andI love it. We have to jump out of the window to wash our clothes and our toilet didn´t work the whole week…. 4 hermanas…. Comida de Argentina…. No toilet…. One week….. jajajaja (Hashtag)MEMORIES.  And on my first day here I saw a woman driving her motorcyle while breast feeding…. No joke. and we share our area with Elders which is weird. And to top it off my companion got dear Sally’d if thats a thing so today has been full of tears. But I am so grateful to be here. In ANOTHER area. Time is flying by so fast. I love my comp. I feel like she isn´t real because shes so great. The people here are so humble and so sweet. And I am pumped to help them come unto Christ and know of this amazing message.

I´ve been recognising more then ever that we truly can do nothing with out our savior Jesus Christ.  So many people in the world just cruz through life and all of the hardship on their own and it truly breaks my heart. Que suerte que tenemos that our Heavenly Father sent his son to the earth so that we don´t have to take on all of these hardships and troubles on our own. It´s like we are on and island and we have to get to the other island beforethe storm. And we have two options, we can take a boat and sail smoothy across to the other island with a couple bumps or we can use all of our energy to swim to the other side with the sure chance that we won´t make it through the storm on our own. We have this beautiful gift that our Heavenly Father has given us of the Expacion of his son Jesus Christ that can literally carry us back to the presence of our Heavenly Father. That can cure all of our wounds. That can help us overcome ANY hardship, any strugle, any insecurity and all we have to do us swallow our pride and use the this gift that we have and fall into his arms that have always been extended towards us. I don´t have a lot of time but I just want you to know that I know my Savior lives I know that My Father in Heaven sent his son so that I could return to his loving arms. All we have to do is humble ourselves and let the expacion take effect in our lives. And that is how we find true happiness. True and everlasting happiness. We don´t have to do it on our own. We choose to swim or we choose to sail. (Mosiah 15,16)

The mission is the best choice I have ever made and if you´re thinking about going… GO.

My fav verses of the week D and C 58:27-33 read it and ponderize it and love it.

Well a 12 and a half hour bus ride and I am here en Pizarra(Oran), Argentina. I miss Hermana Liza with all of my heart. And my home away from home Santiago del Estero but I know that God has a plan and everything will be alright. This area is really old time status. But I love it already. My companion is from Bolivia and I am her step mother in the mission. I feel a little bit weird to be honest because I feel like I left my life 12 hours away Santiago but TODO BIEN.

This past week with Hermana Liza we worked so dang hard and we saw so many miracles. And I just love that area with all of my heart.  BUT there is new things in store and immmm alright with it.

Mosiah 14:“3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
 4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
 6 All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquities of us all.
 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb so he opened not his mouth.”

and I love that in this chapter it repeatedly says that after all that our savior suffered he opened not his mouth. QUE PALABRAS. AFTER all that he suffered. I am so grateful for my brother and redeemer Jesus  Christ and his example to me. That he came here, and suffered more than we could ever imagine. MORE THAN WE CAN EVEN IMAGINE and did it so peacefully and humbly that he opened not his mouth. He let his will be consumed in the will of his Father so that we could return to live with him. And that through his stripes we can be healed.  We can overcome temptations, grief, sorrow, saddess, we can overcome all through him, all we have to do is put our faith in Him. What a blessing it is to know our Savior Jesus Christ and to know of the Atonement. I love this gospel more than I can put into words and I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to be here serving the Lord and more and more everyday learning of the truthfulness of this message and putting it into practice in my life and helping others to do the same. I just want everyone to realize this amazing gift of the atonement that we have. And to use it because there is nothing better that we could do in this life. I really want to have this courage that our Savior has and to just go forward with faith in his plan despite of whatever this passes by because we know why we are here. We decided to come here and we knew we would have these trials and when we work according to the will of our father, all is possible.
I love


We woke up, worked out, studied, cleaned, bought food and made tacos!!!! HAPPY 4 OF JULY. And we have fireworks that other sisters left in our apartment but we can´t use them (tears)

Not gonna lie I am a little trunky today thinking of the freedom run and fireworks and american food. But I am so grateful that I get to help these argentinos to be freeeed from satanas. That’s about the most creativity I have for today. Jajaja

This week was really good! I love my companion with all my heart. And I feel like things are just too good to be true. I love the mission and sharing this message more than anything and time is flying by SO fast. I feel like I was in the MTC yesterday and now I am more than half way done. So loco la verdad. I don´t have a lot of time but I just wanted to share this quote witttt ya

“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God . . . and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.” Orson F. Whitney

I am so grateful for my trials and tribulations so that I can more so come to know my Savior and become like him and so that through the use of the atonement I can return to live with my Heavenly Father again. I am so grateful for this gospel and the opportunity I have to share it. It breaks my heart to see all these people that are so blinded by Satan and so wrapped up in the ¨good things¨ that they don´t have room for the important. I could say a million bazillion things right now but I have no time but just know that the livin is good and that I know my savior lives and loves us and I am so grateful for this life that we have, through him, to learn and grow. Remember who you are and don´t do drugs and to tell your dad that you love him and also I can´t send any pictures because this computers is a lil junky.

Paz y bendiciones
