Feliz 26 de Diciembre

it was sooo amazing to talk to you guys! i loved it so much. i cant wait to get home and see you all. itll be such a beautiful experience. 

a lot of things happened this week. we went to do divisiones in cerro de pasco and it was sooo amazing! i saw a lot of the people up there and they all rmembered me! that was a releif haha and i just was soo happy to see that miguel was still going to church with his mom josephina and he is dating one of the girls i was rescuing,... ahhh i hope they get married and sealed in the temple. it would be the cutest thing ever. 
we had  a multi zone and it was so amazing to see the video that you guys did. i did cry. it seriuosly made my whole christmas. thank you! and thanks grant as well for doing it there in mexico.i love you all! 
we did a super fun activity. we went to a shopping mall and contacted outside. the elders dressed up as the three wisemen and a gringo as santa clause. every kid went crazy. they were so excited to see papa noel. they all wanted photos. we also wrapped books of mormon with our tstimonys inside. we gave them all out. my comp and i talked to  96 people... in like 3 hours... it was soo fast! but i jusut hope at least one person gets baptized from our activity. it was fun. i lov christmas and i love that we can remember christ. i love this gospel. im grateful he was born

One Month Exactly Left!

can you guys believe that i have only one month left??? only four weeks of giving it all ive got. where did time go? what is happening? im scared to come home and see you all. please just dont tell me ive gotten fatter. i already know and itll make me sad haha. or that ive gotten older on the mission. i also have lots more wrinkles. but im excited to see how everyone has changed. 

this week we have met a lot more people. its kind of crazy when you really start to talk with everyone... we should be talking to everyone and there are hundreds of people that walk by us every single day. none of them know the gospel. but i have read a talk that i really liked. it was about being genuine. by uchtdorf. its really true that we should fake who we are. that doesnt allow the atonement to work in our lives. if we are letting christ to really take place in our lives then we will become better and better. there is another talk that i read that i also liked. i think its called what more i lack? we should be asking the spirit in what we can improve and he will give us specific answers. i know that it is true. we may be humble enough to ask but not as loyal or faithful to follow the divine council that the spirit gives us. ask god in what you can all improve. he will tell us. its really cool! and its a very personalized answer. he told me something tiny that i do that is holding me back from progressing. because maybe we all read our scriptures and maybe we all pray and go to church. but there are always little things we can improve. and once we improve the first thing we can ask again and improve something else. read this talk and ask god in what you all can improve. it really is sooo cool!! i loved studying this week. i just feel like i learned so much. im so sad my time is coming to an end but come what may and love it right??? i love you all

Ha Nacido Un Salvador

this week! well it seems like after a baptism you are always starting from 0. we contacted 101 people this week.. and that is our goal to keep contacting  at least 100 every week. hna cañari is great. she helps me sooo much not be trunky. i cant be trunky,.i have to give everything i have! i cant believe that literally only a month left i have... wow. but im grateful for the time that i have had. we have found a lot of people but are still waiting to see how they wil progress. today we drive to huancayoo... another 6 hours. another training haha.
something funny.

so the relief society president said i have this little handouts to give to your visiting teachers if you are going to visit your sisters this week. she held it up and it said a savior has been born.. or something like that translated with the star and the manger and the three wise men. an olld lady like super old lady raised her hand and said but sister... christ was born in april. it was soo funny! i dont even know why but it was super funny. the teacher just said thank you sister and kept talking. haha!! well at least we know she is studying hah.we laughed forever about it. 

well i hope you all have a super amazing week! keep doing something every day to get to know your savior. oh about that. we read that on one day it was help donate liek crutches or something like that? help people walk i think? and as we were walking past this evangelica church which sing and shout hallelujah and everuything we see this old lady getting out of a taxi. she cant get out. so we help her and help her walk to her church. we walked in the church and everyone just stared at us like how dare you be in our church. but we had to help the old lady! no one else helped her.. not even until we walked in and almost helped her sit down but another old lady came over and finally took over. the looks on their faces were priceless. but jesus helped the people walk and so can i.
