AHH family i have so much to tell you!! this week was probably the most crazy and spiritual week of my mission so far. i had so many amazing experiences and i wish i could tell you every detail.. but ill just have to get to the big parts!! 

Friday we had a conference with all fo the mission peru arequipa!! We got to listen to the leaders of our area and also we got to listen and shake the hand of Elder Russell M Nielson! It was such an amazing experiece i cant even put it in words.. when he walked in the chapel the spirit was soo strong. We learned so much from all of them but the talk that stood out to me the most was Sister Neilsons She talked about how if we could see ourselves in the pre-existence, how we were and who we really are our troubles and worries would fall away. That we should never forget who we really are... Sons and Daughters of God. I have never had more of a desire to be obedient to my Heavenly Father because i love him and want to serve him. And i want to invite each one of you to think about who you really are. If there is anything holding you back from being one hundred percent consecrated to the lord.. Give it up. Put your pride and things of the world on the altar of sacrifice and if you do this you will find more happiness than you can imagine! The lord will bless you with all that you need, just give yourself to him!  Well one day we can talk for hours and hours but for now i must go. Happy Birthday to Phil on the 22nd!!! and to Junior on the 25th!!! hope you all have an amazing thanksgiving!!! ill try to find myself a turkey to kill and cook........ hahaha just kidding(: Transfers are next week..i guess well see what happens!! i love you allso much and wish the best for each and every one of you!! 

Duda de sus Dudas no de su Fe!!!!!(:

Con mucho amor y respeto!!!

hola como estan???? todo bien?? espero que si(: Well my companion went to lima on tuesday to finish her visa papers to go to mexico and they told her she was supposed to leave the 20th but we havent heard anything yet so were hoping she stays at least for the wedding and til the end of transfers which is the 1 of december! But everything is up in the air right now. BUT this probably means that im staying here in MOQUEGUA for another transfer haha it is possible that they´ll transfer me and send two new hermanas here but its doubtfull!!! im hoping i get one more transfer here so i can be with the family here for christmas! I think it would kind of be hard to have christmas with a new family i dont know, but we´ll see!! im okay with anything and know that the lord knows best(: 

Right now they are celebrating the anniversary of moquegua here which is the 25th of this month and since my area is the main part of the city everything is crazy here, theres things going on almost every day, parades, competitions and tons of other stuff that i cant remember.. haha The only downside is that a lot of people are visiting and dont actually live here... made for a kind of rough week but hey we made it(:

Were still working with marvin to actually get him to baptism! hes still doing awesome, he wants to get baptized and everything but he hasnt recieved an answer that this is the true church yet,,, patience patience patience(: Everything with the wedding is still going smooth, its going to be simple but pretty. Shes getting super excited and her family from cuzco is going to come too!! Soo exciting(: 

A quick funny story, friday the bishop called and asked us to talk in church on sunday.... well saturday night at 10:30 when i was saying the prayer to go to bed i said"and please bless that tomorrow we can go to church and listen to the voices of your servents...(awkward silence...) THATS US!!!" hahah we totally forgot!! needless to say we didnt sleep so well and had a busy sunday morning planning our talks. haha i talked about faith and why we are scared to share the gospel with our friends or others? D&C 84:85 and Moroni 10:7 are both good, they talk about how god will help us to know what to say when we need to say it. This is his work. He wants his children to join His church so he can bless them. But he needs us to open our mouths and share what we know!! you dont have to have all the answers to questions they might have.. you just have to have your testimony and the spirit... and the spirit will help' you to know what to say(: I know this is true with all my heart, THe lord will help you to know what to say!! it is our responsibility to share the happiness that we have with everyone we can, so DO IT(: 

I love the mission so much. i love this area, my companion, who has become my best friend and all of my zone! One thing i didnt think about before i left was all the friends i would make DURING the mission!! I cant believe how fast time is going by!! Christmas is just around the corner!!

Well i love you all so much!! i found out you can send videos to me if there small!! do it(: also let me know how everyones doing, keep me updated!!!! love you all more than words can say!!! Be good, Be happy, Be yourself and remember that you are loved!! (:

This week was definately a different one! We had some amazing opportunities to give service and to work with our investigators that are so amazing! My companion was also sick a couple days which made it hard to work as hard as i would have liked to but thats life for you! We truly saw miracles saturday and both of us know it was because we truly did our best to be exactly obedient and work as hard as we could. We are still planning a wedding for Maria and Luis and things are coming together perfectly!! the church is true(: i know that God is helping us in the work here and i know that obedience brings miracles. i love my companion Hna Diaz and we are learning and growing so much together. I would love to stay more time here in moquegua but i know that the lord will put me where he needs me, just know that i have no problem staying another transfer here, even if ive been here for almost 6 months(: 

Monday we got to go to Torata, where theres a little waterfall! it was awesome and a good oportunity to let my adventurous side show again!

Friday we all watched 17 miracles as a zone with our investigators and i remembered when i went and saw it with my aunties,  such a good movie!!

Saturday we got asked to pose for a famous painter from lima!! he was nice enough to let me take a picture of it!! its sweet!! Too bad its like 100 dollars!!

What i most wanted to share with you all is a little comparason i learned of the atonement and grace this week from my zone leader Elder Astle. Think about when a child learns how to play piano, His mom pays the teacher to teach him and the teacher teaches the child. The only thing the child can do is learn and practice, He cant repay the teacher or his mom, the debt is already paid. Its the same with us and with the atonement. Jesus Christ our savior has already paid the debt for us, all we can do it "practice" or learn and grow each day. I was also reading in Enos 1:4-8 when he prays and recieves forgiveness, he asks the lord how it is done and the lord replays because of his faith. The atonement cannot have effect if we dont believe in it, if we dont truly believe that our savior can take away our sins. BELIEVE!!! The atonement is real and is the greatest gift our heavenly father has given us!! Dont Forget that!!(: i love you all and think about you erry day!! hope all is well and that you are all fighting the good fight and keeping the faith!! over and out from moquegua!!

Well hello!!!

We had an amazing week here in moquegua! the more time i spend here the longer i want to stay! Were working with marvin still and saw a huge change in him this week! he came to church on sunday and we are planning his baptism for this saturday! He is making some big changes in his life and we are so proud of him!! Thursday we had our "noche de criolla" party with the ward, a sort of halloween party haha it was good! we had lots of games and fun and we dressed up as eachother.. hna diaz as me and me and hna diaz... haha yeah we know were clever(: 

On saturday we went to the cementary with our zone to shine shoes and it was awesome! They had a holliday this last weekend called dia de todos santos where they go put flowers and food on their families graves! So we had a sign and shined shoes for free for a good 3 hours! We talked to so many people and the people there loved it! My favorite part was one lady i talked to who told me that she was greatful for people like us who are willing to give service, that everyone else was just looking to make money or sell something but we were there to help people, by shining their shoes and by giving them a word of hope. Then she said she knew just by our spirit of serviec that we truly were representing the lord. It felt good to give service as a zone! and i knew that one way or another we helped people that day!

This week one of our recent converts Ciro, whose 14 went to the temple with other youth and sunday bore his testimony in sacrament meeting, hna Diaz and i were both in tears, the spirit was so strong. His parents were both there, neither which are members and i know they felt the spirit too.  we met with them later that day and they told us that because of the example of their son they both too would like to be baptized. i think i already told you that we were talking about doing their wedding but  now its set in stone!!  We are planning both their wedding and their baptisms for the 30th of this month! i cant explain how much i love this family, and how great i am to be a part of this big change in their lives. i know this church is true and that people truly are watching us and watching what we do. We have the opportunity to be examples to all of those around us and to help them by our example. We are all sons and daughters of god and are here to help our brothers and sisters return to His presence. i know this church is true and i love this work with all of my heart. i have never been so happy in my life and know that this is where i need to be! I know that sometimes the lord gives us hard times to test our faith, but if we remember His infinite love that he will always have for us we will know that everything will work out. He will never give  us things that are too much to handle, KEEP THE FAITH(: 

Thank you for all the love and support!! i love and miss you all so much and all of your costumes were so cute(: Keep up all of your good works and remember that you are loved(: (:


Chooww choowwww
