Cuuuucuracha cuuucuracha

Well the heat has hit HARD and our little friends have left their hiding and we have crocroaches everywhere. I literally want to cry jajaja. But ya know its fine. They are mostly in our bathroom and so I avoid going to bathroom in our apartment most days. And my companion is becoming pro in killing becasue it hurts my heart to kill them so thats a plus. And this week was just the best ever. We have been working so dang hard and not seeing much sucess. And I literally felt so sad that my hija was starting out the mission with literally no one progressing and I just didn´t have a clue as to what I was doing wrong. And then we decided to set smaller goals and work harder on our little goals instead of working on a ton at the same time. And then the otherday a member less active ran up to us in the street and told us hes from a different city and that he was baptized a while back and wants to come back to church but doesn´t know where it is. And so we set a date to visit him and I just had the strongest impression that I needed to visit him but not for him. And I always have weird feelings like this but this time was different.

So the next day we went to go visit him and he wasn´t home so we started walking away and then we turned around and decided to invite his niece to listen to this message and she almost started crying and told us that she has wanted to talk to us for years but was always too scared. And she has always want to preach the gospel and be a missionary but she was just to shy to ask how. And I literally almost started crying. I just felt a lil like jacob when he said “for I had requested it of my Father who was in heaven; for he had heard my cry and answered my prayer.” She then acepted to be baptized and then she introduced us to her son… and so she cant serve in the mission and my heart hurts but she is still so happy and came to church and told me that she never wanted it to end. And I just feel unbelivable grateful. And she is inviting all her family and they are so pumped too. I know God was right when he told us that we can´t try to run faster than we have the strength to do so. Really we just saw a lot of miracles this week and I love being a missionera with all of my heart. And I just feel the strongest desires to serve with literally all I have in these last months. Omni1: 26 “And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye shouldcome unto Chist, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption.Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying,and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved. “ because

Mathew 12:30 “He that is not with me is against me;”

I have really learned the importance of offering our whole souls as a sacrifice to him and the blessing that come with it. I know that we aren´t perfect but I know that with our efforts one day we can become so.

And a lil TMI: This week as we were walking down the street a bug flew into my mouth and I started coughing so dang hard that I peed my pants. Or my skirt. In the middle of the street.

This week we had a ton of Family Home Evenings. And one of them on Tuesday night fell through and we were so sad because we had big plans and we also made a tonnn of brownies. So we started depressingly walking and we started eating our brownies to lift our spirits of course and after walking like 6 streets the brownies were gone. We literally ate probably 40 brownies. Not joking. AND NO SHAME jajajaj. And we woke up the next morning zombies, literally I have never felt so gross. And of course the first page we read in our companionship study talks about how are bodies are temples. But don´t worry, our diet started today!

Week 132121242


This week was probably the hottest week of my life. LIKE WOW. We have to walk 45 minutes to get to most parts of our area and it’s like walking through an oven all day long. And my tan lines…. Woooooo jajajaja but I am still so white next to my companion so it’s fine. She is the cutest thing by the way. And I still have some cute friends in my hair if you were wondering. And my computer isn´t letting me send anything right now so I don´t even know if I can send this. But I just love my little life here in Oran and I am so very grateful to be a missionary. I just want my time here to never evaaa end. And its going by so dang fast. It really amazes me how put together our church is. How perfect and organized it has always been and always will be. We have been finding tons and tons of new people. And its been the sweetest experience. We have a new investigator se llama Andres and he is blind and his phone reads him scriptures and he is just the highlight of my life. But I really don´t remember a lot from this week to be honest other than walking and walking and walking jajaja. And we had FHE and a ton of families came and we really are changing this area. Slowly but surely. And also we literally smell so bad and look so bad but these creepy old men still whistle at us so obviously we still got someeethinnn jajaja. And I literally have no time. And we are planning a surprise party for one of the Elders wooottt wooooottt so gottttta jet. Something I really liked in my studies this week was in Mathew 4 when jesus invites his apostles to become fishers of men and they literally leave everything they have in that moment to follow him and because fishers of men. Imagine what the world would be like if we could all just let go of all of our sins and follow our savior. Its somethings so hard to do at times but something so nessecary in these ultimos dias.

Thoughts of the week: the stongest desires to go to 7 peaks

Piojos significa lice y es algo que tengo. (Head lice means lice and is something that I have) Jajaja well I literally never thought I would have lice in my life and then the other morning this creepy black thing fell into my hand and my head started ICHING A FUL. And so thats where we´re at thisweek. On Sunday I litterally had like 5 women taking bugs out of my hair. And the worst part about it is that they took out a ton. But once one of them has babies IT HAS 300 BABIES. I literally feel so gross. But thats the missssh que no? Sacrifice brings blessing jajajajja. A nice welcome to the mission for mi  hija.

Mi hijita is from niceragua. She is the cutest thing ever. She is like half my size and we get along so well. I taught her how to contact people in the street but with jokes and being funny and its the funniest thing to watch her literally do everything I do. She makes me so happy. This week was full of travels and getting used to change in our schedule and training. But it was reallly good! We are working with the sweetest family and their daughter came to church this Sunday and already has plans for EFY. So I am stoked. We also are really going to focus on helping all of our less active member through FHE. And really FHE brings miracles. There is not a doubt in my mind. So if you aren´t having FHE and want miracles in your family or with your friends START NOW. Gracias.

But more than anything this week I have learned how importante and sabio it is to follow the example of our savior in all aspects. I have been so worried about training my whole mission because I really just want to help the new missionaries love the mission and not the oposite. And when I heard I was going to train I fipped. Jaja. But really there isn´t a more simple way to be a good leader and a good example than to follow the example of our Savior. I learned this week that there is one remedy for all cases. And its what we´ve been taught our whole life. To have faith in Jesus Christ, repent daily, Remeber our bauptisimal covenents, accept the Holy Ghost and his guidence in our lives, and endure to the end. It is the most intelligente remedy that has ever been and ever will be. It can save lives, it can heal a broken heart, it can lead us and guide us into people we never imagined. It is the key to happiness and to salvation. And it comes from the man who has all inteligence and all power. Who is with out end. And I know with out a doubt in my mind it is the ONLY way we can truly be happy. Not just temporally happy, it is the only way we can really reach our goals and our potential in this life.

“Where Jesus was selfless, they were selfish. Where Jesus was concerned with freedom, they were concerned with control. Where Jesus was concerned with service, they were concerned with status. Where Jesus met the genuine needs of others, they were concerned only with their own needs and wants. Where Jesus was concerned with the development of his disciples, they sought to manipulate mortals. Where Jesus was filled with compassion balanced by justice, they have so often been filled with harshness and injustice.

Perhaps all of us would not be the perfect example of leadership, but all of us can make a serious effort toward approaching that great ideal.”

There is a crocroach crawling on my desk in this little cyber as I type.

I AM PREGNANT. WWOOOOO. Not really but my hija is here and she is waiting for me in Salta and I am the happiest little camper. Not a lot of Hermana’s are training in the mission right now and we only received 3 new Hermana’s and I thought for sure I wasn´t going to train because there are so many Hermana’s that haven’t trained yet. And I am just on cloud nine. These past two transfers have been really hard to be honest. Really hard to be obedient because of a lot of things that have happened and I just prayed and prayed this week that God could give me a new fresh start even though my companion was the best ever, it was really, really hard on me to have to sit in our apartment all of the time and not work. And just so much happened and I just thought this is my test. I am going to stay here another transfer to learn more patience and to be honest I was a little bit heartbroken cause I just want to work work work. And then the elders called and told me and I am just so happy. I feel like I am having a real child I am so excited. #Godanswersprayers

But wow what a great weekend que no? I feel so lucky to watch our living prophet and apostles share their inspiration and love for each one of us. It’s so crazy how in tune with the spirit these guys are. I loved when Russell M Ballard talked about leaving the restored gospel. When he said “Where will you go to be taught about your best friend Jesus Christ?” Its really so sad to me that people can get so caught up in the things of the world today that they forget about the things that are truly important not just temporal. I know without a doubt in my mind that this is the restored gospel. That this church is the light of the world and the only way that we can really come to know our Savior. Because it is based on his teachings.

2 Nephi 22
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.
3 Therefore, with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

2 Nefi 22
2 He aquí, Dios es mi salvación; confiaré y no temeré, porque el Señor Jehová es mi fortaleza y mi canción; y también ha llegado a ser salvación para mí.
3 Por tanto, con gozo sacaréis agua de las fuentes de la salvación.

He is my salvation and I feel so dang lucky to know that through him all is possible if it be for our wellbeing. I love my Savior and I can´t even put into words how lucky I feel to be serving here in Argentina. I know that only though him we can find true happiness. True and everlasting happiness. And that through him we can truly change our nature. Not just out attitude but our nature. We can become more than we ever imagined.

Imma go but some stuff for mi hijita. 

Over and out
