Cambio Dos.. WOOT, WOOT!


This week has been super crazy haha! I honestly don't really remember much of what happened. I feel like everything yet nothing happened all at the same time, but that's the mission for you.

We had a super awesome district meeting on Tuesday in Niebla, which is the sector of the elders in our district. We did like a district companionship inventory where we said nice things about our companions in front of the entire district and it was super awkward, but also things got a little emotional haha, missionaries for you. 

Transfers were on Wednesday.. I'm finishing my training with Hermana Ruiz so we will be together for another 5 weeks at least, but Hermana Bailey's companion Hermana Arrington was transfered to Punta Arenas and Hermana Bailey is training again! We were all kinda surprised because Hermana Bailey had already been in her sector for 3 transfers, but now we have Hermana Ault from Arizona in our ward and she is super cute and super funny! It's also fun to see how much I really have grown in 6 or 7 weeks. It's crazy to think that I was in her shoes a month and a half ago. 

Que mas? I started reading the Book of Mormon in the MTC and I finished on Saturday which was super, super awesome! It was kinda funny because I got to chapter 10 of Moroni and I just started crying.. and Hermana Ruiz thought I was laughing at her, but no, tears just started leaking out of my eyes for like really no reason at all haha. But in all seriousness, the Book of Mormon is INCREDIBLE and so, so powerful, and just perfect. I know that it's true with all my heart, and I have felt a confirmation of its truthfulness each time I read it. I'm super stoked to start from the beginning.. in Spanish haha!

Today we went to the beach and played soccer as a district! It was SOOOO much fun! I miss playing so much it's crazy. I never really realized how happy it makes me, until I found out I couldn't play with the elders in the CCM, haha. I'm so glad President Isom is letting us play now because it is way to fun!! Also the beach here is beautiful! Like wow. 

Oh.. so I wore my fitbit (almost) everyday during my first transfer and I just wanted to let you all know that Hermana Ruiz and I took 713,473 steps, walked 299.2 miles, and climbed 971 floors in six weeks! que bakan! 

Well.. I think that's all I've got for you all today. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Please eat a plate for me.. because I certainly don't need it. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity that I have to be serving a mission in Chile and for the Savior and his atoning sacrifice for each and every one of us, and also I'm super grateful for all of you! .. enjoy my little mermaid reenactment.. I'm a dork, I know!
