hello family  and friends!!!!!!! this week has been stressful but also really nice!! me and hermana gonzales are doing really well and she is so spiritual and i love all of the insights that she has. she really has a love for the mission and i am so grateful for everything that she offers to the mission.

we are still struggling with progressing investigators. remember nelli? ya we went to visit her and she wasnt really interested and she looked really bugged. its so sad!!!!!!! but we are really working hard and we have lots of faith to find someone new. this sunday we talked to a lot of members and made citas with them so we are hoping to get a lof of references from them. also this week hermana gonzales has been sick so we spent one day in the pension and we had the opportunity to call a lot of people and make citas with  them! its so crazy that im talking with people in spanish but i love it!!!!!

it really means a lot to me that you are all doing something to sort of be on a mini mission. thank you so much! i know the lord is going to bless you so much! also this week i have really felt the love of the savior in my life. yesterday i had the chance to read my patriarchel blessing and i am starting the doctrine and covnants and i am loving it!! if you havent read them before i want to challenge you to read them!! its amazing!
 also my subject says sueños. last night i want to offically say that i had a dream and some of it was in spanish!! im a missioary!!!! i hope you all have a good week and thank you for your support!!!! la obra misional es maravillosa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! les amo!!!!!

Entrenamiento (Training) numero dos

hello sweet family! how is everyone been this fine week?? i hope you are all enjoying the summer heat!!! this past week has been crazy and so much happened!

i first was staying with the hermanas in their area for a few days and then on wednesday i went to neuquen to pick up my new companion!!! it was crazy! i got there about 8 in the morning and i had to be at the mission home at about 11. i got there and elder lyman was training too! we were in the same district in the MTC to it was great to see him!! and also i saw hermana webb for the first time in 2 or 3 months!! it was a great mtc reunion!
my new companion is hermana gonzales de Peru! she is really ready to work! im super excited. she isnt shy like i was at first so that is amazing!! we got home on wednesday night and we went out working on thursday and we came back to the pension for the night and our carbon monoxide detector was going off! it was brand new and it was going off so for about a week, so we have been in the pension of the hermana leaders! it has been a little hard to do everything. we are doing all of our studies in their pension and their area is about 30 to 40 mintues from our area so we are walking alot! we are contacting a lot and calling a lot of people from the area book! all of a sudden the fear i had before of doing things is gone! the Lord is really blessing me cause i am not scared to talk as much! so i am so grateful for that! it kind of amazes me how i am speaking another language and people can understand me! what a blessing it is to be here and communicate with people from another country! 
i am developing patience. which is good! not it a bad way. i just have to remember that my companion doesnt know everything yet so i have to repeat a lot and i am remembering everything that hermana lara ( my trainer) did with me! we are working hard and she really has a desire to work so hard. sometimes she gets nervous with teaching and i am thinking of me and how i was. it was the same, but now i have changed! she is amazing!!! 

i am glad you are all safe and healthy and i hope you all have a good week!!!! les amo muchisimo!!!!

 PS. Here are some pics of my new comp, Hermana Gonzalez. We spent the first part of the day in training and then we got out on the streets to try contacting. She did great!

Another week....another milagro

hello sweet family and friends!! how is everyone doing this fine day!!! It is currently raining here in argentina and its cold! so just be grateful for your summer weather right now!!

this week has been pretty chill! we are having a hard time finding new people to teach! i dont know why but we are working so hard to find new people and i have a list lleno of people so that is our goal this week! its the last week of the transfer and i am pretty sure im staying here until august or september so i have a long time here! the members are really good and i am trying so hard to get to know them! 

this week we had a little milagro! we were at church yesterday and we were sitting in relief society and the elders bring this lady in and she sits next to us. her name is nelli. after the lesson we started talking to her and she told us where she lives and she lives in our area!! someone from the other barrio have her the number of the missionaries and she came to church on our own. it was really cool and she stayed the whole church time!! it was really cool! we are going to stop by her house this week and she how she felt!!!!!! 

i am trying so hard to be obedient and do everything i am suppose to!!! it is so hard to be obedient! satan is working just as hard. in the mornings, my bed seems to be more comfortable! but i promise i am doing what i am suppose to!!!! this week for exercises i have been trying extra hard to actually do them and to make the most of them. every squat i do and push i do i am thinking of my family and of could i imagen lindsi in my face making me do them!!! love you LINDS!! 

this week i am gaining a love for the scriptures in spanish! sometimes they are so frustrating and i dont want to read them in spanish cause i have to read them a lot slower but this week i have made myself read them in spanish and i am in mosiah!!! spanish is so cool!!! 

i hope that you are all doing well and i hope that you are being blessed!! aregentina is still awesome and i wish you could all be here with me!

i love you!!!
