Hello Everyone!! 

This week Hermana Olson and I have worked really hard! Sometimes its hard to see the progress because it is a vacation town and a lot of people come and go but the Lord has been able to help us with the work here and give us tiny, but HUGE miracles! 

This has been a week of finding! We have been able to find the houses of 3 different references from only their street name. I know that only a loving Heavenly Father could have led us to all of the right houses in one day! I know that God works through His Holy Ghost and that we are given more promptings and more guidance than we think. And if we just act and show a particle of faith we will be able to recieve even more guidance and divine help from above. 

But BIG NEWS Elder Bednar is coming to Buenos Aires to speak to all the missionaries here and I am sooo excited!! For me now, listening to the apostles is better than Christmas. Im so excited to be instructed by one of the Lords servants! 

God is so good and the Gospel is so true! 

Here are two quotes from President Eyring! 

" The companionship of the Holy Ghost makes what is good more attractive and temptation less compelling." 

"Only through the Holy Ghost we can see people and events as God sees them."

I know we can ALWAYS have the Holy Ghost to be with us. He is the best companion we could ever have. 

Love you all!! Have a great week!

Hello Everyone!!

This week has been crazy becuase just as I had settled in, we got a call from the mission offices that my companion had to do paperwork for her id in Buenos Aires! And I was to travel an hour to Pinamar to be companions with HERMANA RAMIERZ! I was sad that we had to leave our area a couple of days but so happy that we got to be companions again, if just for a few days!! It was Hermana Ramierzs one year anniversary so we decided to go and find a Mexican Resturant from a flyer that was in her apartment. We find the place, we order our tacos and the owner gave us free chips and salsa, and then we bought a ton of ice cream. Just as we were finishing eating the tacos, we get a call from the sister asking where we were for lunch. We assumed it was canceled since we called and called all morning with no response. So we left and went to lunch, after being so full from tacos!! But I had a blast and we were able to work really hard and visit the best families!!! I forgot to bring my camera they are memories that I will never forget!

When we left Saturday morning for Villa Gesell, our bus broke down but we finally made it back!! We worked hard this weeked and our hard work paid off! One of our investigators, Raquel came to church! She is the sweetest, gave me a present the first time I met her, and is the biggest hippy Ive ever seen!  

Everyday is craziness here in the coast! But I love it here! It is so beautiful and there is lots of potencial! I starting to love the people here and I cant wait to help them come to know Christ so that they can have the blessings of this sweet and perfect Gospel!!  

Here are 2 quotes I loved this week from Elder Bednar! 

" Conversion is an offering of self, of love, and of loyalty, we give to God in gratitude for the gift of testimony."

"We should know the Gospel is true and be true to the Gospel." 

I love these quotes!! I know the gospel is true and I know it is the only thing that brings happiness into our lives!! 

Have a great week!

I don´t have too much time to write today, but I just wanted to say that I´ve been transfered to the coast, in Villa Gesell. And I´m half training (or the step mom) of Hna Olson from Washington State!! It was sooo hard for me to leave Quilmes because I love our investigadors, members, and our recent convert, Nahir so much but I know that our leaders of the church, espcieally our mission president, President Nuñez recieves revalation and inspiration from God and truly do His will. I know that God has called me here because I have a lot more work to do and Im ready to work HARD! Love you all, more info and pics to comeee. :)

Helloo Everyone!! 

It has been a crazy but wonderful week here in hotttt Argentina!!! Besides dying from the heat we were able to go to the temple last Tuesday!! It was very much needed! And I know with all my heart that it is truly the House of The Lord and that it is the only place where we can be a little bitt closer to Heaven and be totally cut off from the world. It is a holy place of answers, peace, and without any pain or tempation. It was 8 months too long for me without the temple, and I encourage all of you to go! Today! RIght now! lol. 

Today is kinda a crazy, bitersweet day for me because a year ago today I was on a plane heading home from a broken foot! I can´t believe its already been a year and it has been the craziest, fastest, and hardest year of my life (so far). A year ago I thought that I would never be able to finish my mission let alone finish it in Argentina!! Unexpected changes happen, changes that aren´t part of our plans. But I have learned that "His ways aren´t our ways" like it says in the scriptures and that if we let God take control of our lives he will ALWAYS lead us in the direction and the path that we need to go. His plans are PERFECT!! 

"Fear not, because the future is only as bright as your faith." -Thomas S. Monson 

Have a great week!
