this has been the longest week OF MY LIFE haha. well to start, i have the BEST hija ever (my new companion:)!! She is seriously the cutest thing in the world. And I love training her:) she's from Tucuman Argentina and is sooo sweeet and soo funny and knows a little bit of English and says the funniest things in English I love it!. Its been so fun. I got a pretty bad cold and a sinus infection for a few days so we couldn't go out and work, but its all good, now! I'm all fixed up:))!
For those who don't know this already, my moms side of the family is from Argentina, Buenos Aires actually (um about 3 hours from where I am serving right now) & one of my uncles and my abuelito came to visit me on my P-day this week while they are here visiting family and friends! It was so great to see them. I love my abuelito, he is so precious, it was so good to see him(: I asked permission from my MP to visit with them while they were here, and he said of course! I am so happy they came to visit me, even if it was only for a few hours, it was so nice! Made me a little homesick for a bit, but I'm all good now:)
So we are trying to find new investigators! So were really just trying to talk to EVERYONE we see, and honestly I love i!!!. It really is the best feeling in the world being able to testify to everyone and anyone about the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints!!! and about the blessings it can truly bring into our lives!! ahh i love it really:)
This past Sunday our capilla was FULL !!! It was so great! It makes me so happy to see our chapel full! Andddddd we have baptism date set for Veronica, the sweet lady who wasn't able to join the church forever, she is so ready and so excited to finally be able to get baptized!
Sorry folks short email today, I love you all!!! seriously I have never felt a more satisfying sense of joy in my life then right now as I have been serving the Lord as a missionary, its such a testament to me that the church is true, And I want nothing more than to help others feel this same sense of peace & happiness:) I love to teach about the plan of Salvation, why we are here on this earth, where we came from, & where we will go once our time on earth is completed.
I love you ALL:) Have a great week !!!
