Hello Family! 

So this week has been literally CRAZY! And a lot has happened and I don´t have long to write but I´ll just give ya´ll the high lights!! 

Last week I wrote how we are the hotel for the hermanas and it is soo true!! We had two sisters stay with us Wednesday night and another sister Thursday till today. We are always in trios and it is so fun! 

We have two investigators with baptismal dates coming up really really soon! For December 12th and we have already seen the Christmas miracles because the two women have completely accepted Christ in their lives and want more than anything to be baptized and to follow Christ. That includes giving up smoking and all other bad habbits for the Gospel! I seriously learn more than them then they learn from me! 

We had a super massive family home evening with all our investigators, seriously like 6 of them that are all progressing. It was the most powerful experience ever. They all shared their testimonies and how the Gospel has literally changed their lives. They are all so strong and they are a blessing in my life. This work is the sweetest. 

I have a funny story and a scary one too: 
 So we were teaching our investigator, the one with the date and we were outside at her table when all of a sudden I felt something really warm on my leg! I looked down and saw that her dog was peeing on my leg! In shock, I pushed him away and kindly asked to go to the bathroom. It was suoer disgusting but we all laughed about it later. The mission is for firsts times for everything! 

On Saturday night after planning, I started to feel a ton of pressure in my chest and it hurt to breathe. This went on for hours without letting up and so I called the mission nurse and from there called Hermana Nunez. The next night they took me to the hospital, President and Hermana Nunez and luckily I didn´t have anything serious, just a virul infection in my lungs! All they did for me was give me a shot and tell me to rest. Which is almost impossible in the mission and hard too! But luckily I am feeling much better!! 

So I´ve seen and been though a little bit of everything this week! I love this time that I have to be a missionary and I would´nt trade it for the world. The Church is so true and the Gospel is so sweet. Take care everyone!! Love you all!!

Hi Everyone! 

So I´m still alive and in Argentina!! I´ve been so bad that I haven´t been writing weekly emails, theres just literally not enough time on P-days. But let me give ya´ll a run down on these past couple of months!

I´m in Quilmes now, or beer city, because of the huge beer factory that the city and the beer is named after. But it´s great here I´m really starting to like it and the members here are fantastic! 

About a month ago, my investigators, Carlos and Angelica, the ones who got married, got BABPTIZED! They were baptized the weekend after I got transfered out of Romero but my mission president let my new companion and I, Hermana Flores come back for their baptism. It was amazing and the sweetest experience to have watched them grow through every step. I have seen their lives change, and I know it is only possible through the Gospel. I can´t wait to be there for the next and biggest step in their lives when they are sealed in the temple! Yay eternal families!

My companion and I have been working super hard in our area but whats super funny is that we always end up in temporary trios! They call our apartment the hotel for the sisters because we´re always having sisters coming in for doctors appointments, passport stuff, etc, because we are the closest sisters to the mission office. I absolutely love it. I get to spend time and get to know so many sisters. It´s so fun. 

The Church is so true and the Gospel is so good! 

Have a great week everyone!
