3 companions in one week

Hola mis amigos! 

So this last week was a bit crazy.....I had three companions in one week. Yep you read right! So Monday was cambios then tuesday I said bye to hermana Osborne and hello to Hermana Antileo! She is awesome! She is from Chile so that makes it even better! 

On wednesday we went and did visits with an hermana from the branch to meent some new less actives if that makes sense hahhaa. Right as we were about to enter the first house I got a call from President Arrington telling me that we would be having an emergency cambio and that Hermana Antileo was leaving and I would be getting a new companion. WHAT. So we finished up the visits with this hermana and then Got a call from the assistants to the President telling that they would be coming in the night the next day to bring me my new companion. CRAZY. 

So all of that happened and we got situated. My new companion is Hermana Monroy from Guatemala. She is awesome. She actually was in the same group as me to arrive here in Chile. So we are having tons of fun here and working super hard. Yesterday we had our first investigator in the church. His name is Jose and he is in his 30s he is super awesome, but has work that prevents him from coming to church for the next 3 weeks......pray for a miracle guys hahaha

Also today hermana monroy, the elders from Quirihue, and I went to a beach called Covquecura, appearantly on of the most famous beaches here in Chile. It was gorgeous and super fun also super cold haha. They have a bunch of huge rock formations there. They have one called la iglesia de piedra or rock church haha. The best part is the evanjelicas actually have church there. Nice! 

Have a great week!

Week.....of....travelling.....

Hey everyone! 

So this last week My comp and I were out of our sector....like 3 or 4 out of 7 days.....hahahha so productive! SO what happened is because we live so far out of the way of everything we stayed in Tome for a couple days because we had trainings in the mornings. Something awesome though is that this town that we were in is right on the beach so waking up and going to bed with the view of the ocean was definatly a perk haha

This last monday we had a family home evening with a family where we drew pictures of the boat nephi built and talked about obedience....they like drawing more than anything haha but it is funny how the children were such perfectionists! hahaha

We then had mini cambios with our hermana liders and it just happens that one of them is Hermana Fisher! My first comp from the mission. It was so crazy to be together again and see how much we have grown. I know so much now that I didnt know before....like spanish hahahah but also that through obedience and dilligence all things are possible. I know these two things bless the lives of anyone who possesses them. 

Thank you all for your encouragement and love! 

Have an awesome week!
